I made these digital doodles all through this week in between meals and works.Yeah,I know,it's weird the way I don't settle in one single style but what the hey,creativity is supposed to be about experimenting all time and exploring multiple choices,ain't it?
Then again,perhaps some might say that it's more like that I'm a schizo with multiple personalities.
Anyways,I thought it'd be interesting showing the whacky different ways I visualize the friendliest character from Neil Gaiman's magnum opus.

Sgt. Fury - Jack Kirby
(water brush & digital stuff —Nick Fury ™ & © Marvel Characters, Inc.)

The other day over at the Kirby Dynamics blog there was posted a hi-res image of a pencil commission piece by the King Kirby.And so I went ahead and inked it but that wasn't enough and I also colored it —the inks without color can be seen at Kirby Dynamics.

Popeye and Bluto
(brushpen & digital stuff —Popeye & Bluto © & ™ King Features Syndicate Inc.)

A true warrior never gives up and just keeps up fighting.But then come those times when,you know,you simply don't know what to do.Because the opponent in front of you doesn't have a face you can punch at.
These last days have been a bit hard for me.I urgently needed some distraction (i.e. some face to punch...nothing serious or dramatic,folks,honest —just something to remind me about what I am,what I do and why I don't give up).
Since I couldn't think about anything better I came up with this image of Popeye fighting Bluto.Not sure if that says something,besides the known fact that I'm a Popeye fan (yeah,I know,I'm a fan of way too many things...but hey,I yam what I yam and that's all what I yam).

What you see is something I made for the Cornered blog (corneredfeed).
I really don't have much else to say about these besides the fact that it's amazing how animated gifs can be used to create unique images that make the web stand out as an original canvas rather than simply something to replicate what is already made on printed forms.

Marvin The Martian
(brushpen & digital stuff —Marvin The Martian ™ & © Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)

Back when I was growing up with the TV as my babysitter,I thought that Marvin The Martian was a little kid.Mostly because he was short,had a childish voice in the old Spanish dubbings,and he wore some cool sneakers.It was a bit shocking finding out that he was an adult all along.
So let this pic be an image of a hopeful future where Marvin does grow up and becomes a badass space invader —with cool shoes,of course.

It's been quite a while since I posted any dinosaurs around here so here's this one.
Don't ask me about what species it is supposed to be though,because I drew it in between lunch and some chores and couldn't use any of my reference books.However,It does look like a weird hybrid of ceratosaurus,allosaurus,gorgosaurus and some other feathered theropod (yeah,I know,I'm such a nerd in this topic).If necessary,I'll simply call him Heathcliff.

I'm guessing some of you were expecting this:a new illustration based upon the lovely Miss Ponylegs (go visit her at Flickr,Tumblr and Godsgirls.com —NSFW links).But this time she's not alone because along with her is the not less charming Miss Ari Dee,whom also kindly allowed me to use her likeness (she's available on Tumblr and Godsgirls —NSFW links,too).

About this illo I felt a bit more confident with these portrait experiments but also thought I still can achieve more.So yup,it's a safe bet I'll keep doing them in the future whenever I find time for that.We shall see then.

Lil' something
(paperless image)

Today I should have been typing some articles due this Tuesday.
And maybe eating something.
Instead of that,I kept iTunes playing non-stop while experimenting with some Photoshop™ brushes.Yeah,a man has to have his priorities,y'know.
Anyways,while doing that I found a minute or two for doing this image you see.
