Hey... Artist Guy... Stop Schleppin' around!!

Hey gang,


Dangit... getting a little behind on my posting again...


I am still trying to find my 'voice' with the whole blog thing. The girls (Wendi - The Makeup Zombie & Megan - Kitschy Suburbia both) have managed to pull this off beautifully... And of course... I'm tryin' to pursue a similar goal, and wrestling with the time to add the additional "blogging", to my already hectic/cramped schedule. My guess is my years spent as a nerd-goober haven't really done me any good, at least not socially... And really, how do you make this whole social networking thing work, if yer' not the most social of butterflies? We keeps trying...


But I digress... 


A quick update on the state of 'things'... Wendi had a miscarriage last week. She's fine. Better than fine, really. We were excited about having another kiddo. But it was also not unlike a freight train... coming at us. We would have happily/excitedly embraced another baby into our family. But the fact that we're NOT having another one... well... that's ok too. Which isn't to make light of it... by any means. I feel for anyone who's been through this, and I'm still amazed at how well Wendi handled it. All I'm trying to say... is she's ok, and we're ok... happy to still be a happy little 'party of five', and ok with dodging that automatic 15% gratuity every time we all went to a restaurant...  


Wendi, as always... yer' amazing. I love you!


And after that mush-fest... let's get on to some goodies.

I've been at it for the last couple nights (been a little out of sorts for the last week or so), but things have been turning around, and getting a little better.


First up... the finished colors for one of our characters, Geela Dom (pencils and ink can be seen in my last post)


I'm getting a little faster with the colors, and still learning some tricks here and there. Overall, pretty happy with this one...


So, Neil has been buggin' me to do this picture of Tuff for a while now. I'm pretty sure the tagline here is something akin to "You. Want. This!" Here's the finished pencils. Still a little unsure about the muscles... just kinda doodled them in... 


And here are the finished colors for Tuff. I realize the shading is a little off on his right arm. That was kinda buggin' me. Hopefully I'll get that figured out, and next time it won't look so awkward (at least to me).


And finally, here is a sketch I've been working up to for a while now. Finally, dropped a decent-ish sketch of The Red Neb... took me weeks to finally settle on an image that I wanted to finish up.


And here are the inks I finished last night. I'm actually pretty happy with my inking on this one. Can't wait to get this colored.

That's about it for tonight... I'm sure there's more sketches and doodles lying around that I could toss up here... but I'm getting tired, and fighting my eyelids to stay open right now.

Hope you all enjoy!

-Nebbish Out!
