A painting from Xmas

Yeah, I've been really lazy lately......well, I'll call it "busy". I had a few big projects in the works, but they kinda fizzled out and now it's just going to end up as a couple of new paintings and/or a new set of flash.
I'll be posting some sketches from that soon.

Until then, here's just a few boring flicks of an in between painting....

I did a couple of smaller Xmas commission paintings. This one in particular was for a fellow that works for a cereal company....he wanted his company's characters beating the hell out of his competitor's character.

It was nice to take a break from tattoo-type imagery for a bit and try to be a little more 'loose' or whatever.

Here's my first, rough sketch. I didn't have a lot of time to finish this one, so I tried to think it out as much as possible this time, rather then spend so many hours sketching ideas and layouts in advance. I just went for it. it was actually easier to draw this goofy stuff than I had expected.

Here are my final pencils.

Mid-action photo? (you can notice a dollar bill rolled up in the base of my lamp. It has a huge dick drawn on it. I am too embarrassed to spend it.)

The finished painting....

Around Xmas and new years I had been painting and drawing my ass off, so lately, I've been a little burnt out, so I've spent my nights watching TV like a true lump and loaf.

I have enjoyed season 1 of Carnivale very much. I encourage you all to check it out if you haven't already.
