Hi there! Yeah, I know that I’ve been neglecting this site some, but it’s for a good cause! I’ve been working on bigger things!
I can’t share much about them now, but they include music composing, more work on that Wii game idea I had, and card game codenamed “Jacks Out The Window”.
However, it’d be pretty lame for me to end my first post in over two months like that, so here’s something new for you. A fan named Zach e-mailed the idea that Screenhog should meet Porky Pig, so here it is:
For some unknown reason, this guy popped into my head this morning, so that’s what I drew:
A few notes:
- For all of you budding artists out there, if you need to color something black with pencil, make sure that you wait until the very end of your drawing to do it. Otherwise your fingers will get into it when you’re drawing other things and start leaving smudge marks everywhere.
- I think every artist has a preferred size that they draw. Some draw very large, and can’t fit their whole artistic vision on a regular sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 paper. For me, though, I will usually draw five or six things on a sheet of paper that size. While this has some advantages (thumbnail drawings, storyboard, etc.) I think I have to learn to feel more comfortable drawing bigger.
- Marvin the Martian’s costume, so I have learned, was based on the character Mars from Roman mythology. His face, I assume, was not.
