Well kinda.

It's something I posted a LONG time ago but only just now got around to finishing. It's kinda like an exercise as its the first thing I've ever created COMPLETELY digital.

I learned a lot, and I like the way it came out but my skills in Photoshop painting are FAR from professional. I'm gonna fix that, but for a first attempt I'm really proud.

It's a drawing of Batgirl, well the currant (until September) Batgirl. She looks like this:

So I turned her into a Shiva looking goddess, because I think she's awesome and as for female goddesses I think Shiva is probably the best. Definitely more iconic looking than Hera.

So last week I bought Manga Studio Debut 4! Yay! First I was all:

Then I was all:

'Cuz it's not letting me use my scanner to scan in my comics. I updated my scanner's drivers and idiot checked it in Photoshop (which I'm not a huge fan of for comic making) to make sure the scanner was working. Then I imported the .jpg into MS4 and it got all pixelated and shitty. Which was annoying but not a big deal because I needed to ink over it. It just fucking frustrated me that I couldn't do what I wanted (or figure out how to make panel borders for that matter) to the point where I'm kinda like Bill the Cat. ACK! THBTH!

Here are the two .jpgs. I left the original scan behind them so the difference isn't so BLATANT but tell me which one you think looks better than the other.

The Curious case of Drawing

So my pretend ego knows absolutely no bounds, fortunately reality smacks me in the mouth whenever I get uppity or try to get outta pocket. If you don't get either of those references you don't watch enough HBO documentaries about hookers.

But I digress, as I've previously stated I'm starting a web comic. I was gonna launch it last week but decided that I should get a few weeks (or months) worth of comics in the bag before I go ahead and make and long term promises. Just ask any of my ex's.

The two programs I'm trying to get better at in terms of my digital art production are Manga Studio Debut 4 (here) and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro (here). Here are two of the first drawings I've done in these programs as well as a painting I did for the comic.


This is a shitty iPhone camera picture in bad light. But I like it so BACK OFF!
This is the main character named Ed.
This is his twin Ebony.

So I know my last update was fast and bi-curious but this one will be a little more mellow because I'm not AS excited, but still like two strokes away from finishing.

This weekend was SUPER ART FIGHT IDOL and it was so much fun. I met a ton of people, ate a ton of food, stayed at an amazing hotel, and most importantly got my draw on. I know this sounds kind of retarded, but the people I drew with and met up with this past weekend feel like life long friends and I've met them in person only once.

Totally stoked.

Here are some pictures I captured on my phone during the event. Jes has more pictures on her camera but we need to find the cord before we can upload them. So I'll post those later.
These are the 3 Winners. Daryl, Henry, and Monica. This will lead into the FIRST EVER 3 man (or woman) battle in Super Art Fight. It'll happen in AUGUST. I WILL be there. Cheering on Henry, the man who beat me.
Monica & Daryl fighting in the final round! Baby seals clubbing vs Trash of the Titans
The very beginning of Daryl and Monica's fight. The clubbing seals and Titans are clearly visible.
Super shitty picture of the brackets, if you look closely you can see that I suck. First round knock out to the man who will be champion isn't bad though.
Mark vs Monica. This was a semi-final. It was the CLEANEST canvas of the night. All the artwork was visible and a-fucking-dorable.
Epic Battle between Felipe & Daryl. Daryl won this with the fish net stocking on the leg.
The beginning of Daryl vs Felipe. Yes that's Admiral Ackbar as a heart, and Yoshi with cock mouth.
This is Joe's bondage batman. In his semifinal appearance against Henry.
Henry vs. Joe. Battle of the giants. Nightmare shark vs. Bondage Batman.
Mark vs Rob. Mark's a cowboy in real life, he drew green lantern.
Rob's a midget and a Scarecrow/Wolverine Hybrid. He drew a Cthulhu Kid & Play
GIRL FIGHT! Monica and Ashley did AMAZING work. Plus. They're hot.
It was portal (for Ashley) and T-rex on a skateboard (for monica)
Charm City Shinobi vs Felipe. Felipe won on the strength of his babies holding a giant vibrating cock battering ram.
Mike of The Cow Comic fame: vs Jeff Eoff. Jeff won with a penis bat.
End of round one. Zach vs Joe. First battle and we were ALL nervous. I'm surprised Joe didn't accidentally kill anyone.
Joe ponders cocktapuss.
Might Morphin Power Rangers vs. Squid Bro.
This is the night before we met up, got drinks, food, and hung out while people pee'ed into Baltimore Harbor. I couldn't have asked for a better time. I'm so glad I did this, and I'm also looking forward to getting tattoo'ed by Daryl.

Another update.



In other news, I'm doing Super Art Fight this weekend in Baltimore. I think I spammed it on facebook, so if you're friends with me there, you can read it there. Or try this link: but that probably won't work.

So since I'm going to assume that you're either too lazy to click links or are complete figments of my imagination here's a brief description of what will be happening on Saturday. Myself and 15 other artists will be stood in front of large pieces of canvas and start drawing with Sharpie Magnum Markers. If you don't know what that is, google it. Then we will be given a topic, which we then have to begin drawing and do it QUICKLY so once your finished you can attack your competitors canvas. The idea is not only to draw well but to entertain the crowd and mock your opponent.

My first opponent is Henry Alexander, here is his deviant art page: and his own personal page And now his drawing that was in response to my sketches, which by the way is hilaarious.

Here's my practicing, all with marker except the photoshop pieces, which are obviously done in photoshop on my wacom tablet. Oh and a comic I did in college.

Here is what started it!

At Henry Alexander

I listened to your podcast and I heard you loud and clear sir!


Also while listening I used your talk as ideas. So this practice was the duration of your podcast. Which was funnier than my podcast so I hate you.

Take two.

Huge news.

So all six people who read this get ready to have your panties blown the fuck off. I mean there's probably some other way for me to say all of this but I'm in a rush to go walk my dogs and get to sleep.

So I got accepted to be in Super Art Fight Idol which is in Baltimore MD this weekend and I'm fucking STOKED. I've been trying to practice the past 2 nights to get ready for it, but I need random topics. If you have ideas you can either post 'em in the comments or tweet me at my aptly titled peetsketches account.

Here are the two practices from tonight. Whatcha think? Also tomorrow I'll link my first competitor!
