What a difference 8 years makes…

I spent a few hours last night digging through old art CDs I had. I have not seen some of this artwork in a long time. I found this character I created in 2002 and decided to draw him again, just a quick sketch, on the spot. Here is the older version on the right.

This is not only interesting because of the difference the years make, even though I am rusty, but also the absolute newbie I was in Adobe Photoshop. It was funny to see on a lot of this older art I put affect after affect in, and it doesn’t really help the art all too much. What was I thinking lol.

Of course, I did not have the time to completely ink and color it. I love the roughness a quick sketch brings. I feel the drawing is more organic and fresh seeing all the lines that form the main image. I would love to one day create an entire short 3 or 4 page story like this.

Hope you like the image. Also, last night I threw up the epilogue of Into The Void, one of the first stories of Migrayn. Take a look.

Self Portrait year 2000

I think I did not know how to draw noses, which is why a ton of my early art had characters without noses. How the hell do they breathe?

I get asked that question often, or did at the time. I do sometimes draw that way still, just when I am feeling nostalgic.

Who Made This Mess?

The site is back up. Much work to do. Trying to figure out all the WordPress functions of the theme and go through the massive amount of artwork. The cleanup will happen little bits each day, along with some kind of post along the way.

Anyhow, here is one of the first colored pictures of Migrayn I put up on the web so many years ago. Hope you like the site, and stay tuned for much more, including new artwork.
