Inktober 2016 - Friend[s Stand Together]

And with Day 31, here is the final day of Inktober 2016, with the theme of "Friend".

There's few friendships as great as Calvin and Hobbes; it was, and probably will always remain the greatest comic strip of all time. I like to imagine that, had the series continued on today, Bill Watterson would have included quite a few more geeky interests..

Anyway, Jojo fans know the drill:


Calvin and Hobbes (c) Bill Watterson.
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (c) Hirohiko Araki.

Inktober 2016 - [I'm Gonna] Wreck [It!]
Inktober day 30 is themed "Wreck", and it was impossible to -not- keep thinking of a certain bad guy (but not BAD guy) to do for this.

Wreck-It Ralph is one of my top Disney movies, and hopefully we'll see a sequel to it someday (and hopefully said sequel will be good). Let's just hope it feels a tad more video-gamey in the second half instead of suddenly switching gears to candy jokes.

And in the spirit of the film, I couldn't resist doing a reference to another famous video game, which shouldn't be hard to figure out considering a crapload of my other drawings.

Wreck-It Ralph (c) Disney.
Inktober 2016 - Surprise [no Kyojin]
Catching up on yesterday's theme of "Surprise", I decided to go with an idea that had been floating around my head for a while. I don't think I need to really explain myself. : p

Attack on Titan (c) Hajime Isayama
Remember the Titans (c) Disney
Inktober 2016 - Burn [of the Tiger]

Day 28 of Inktober is themed "Burn".

With the official reveal for the Sun/Moon starters finally done yesterday, I decided to draw the newly-named Incineroar, who, in between some fire attacks and sweet wrestling moves, will probably be leaving many in need of skin grafts in his wake.

There may have been some Street Fighter influence here... Though he actually has a move like Zangief's and not Ryu...

Pokemon (c) Game Freak/Nintendo.

Inktober 2016 - [Fun With] Creepy[pastas]

Inktober Day 27 is themed "Creepy".

And yes, it's another Sonic one since I can't seem to come up with anything else. Though I had this idea for the Tails Doll to be used for this theme for a while now...

Anybody wondering the origins of the eldritch horror involved here should just do a quick google search; it won't take long to see what the deal is. Even the Archie comics are in on the joke.

Sonic the Hedgehog characters (c) Sega/Sonic Team.

So, yeah, it's been a hell of a long time. I'm not even sure if anybody really keeps an eye on this page anymore, having [justifiably] assumed I was gone for good. But for those who are, I might as well fill you guys on what's been happening.

In a few more months, it'll be a year since I returned from South Carolina, after stupidly thinking that getting a few states away from Louisiana would somehow get me actually moving forward in life. To make a long story short, it didn't; if anything it made things worse.

The constant stress pretty much killed my motivation to draw, and for about two years, I could barely get myself to put a pencil to paper. And that fucking sucked, since those constant thoughts of "Hey, you need to draw/it's been over a year since the last real thing..." just messed with me more. 

The complete drought continued when I got back, as I tried to get back into a normal routine and pretend that most of the past couple of years didn't happen. And I guess at least this time it was a little excusable; I went back to my old job and focused on rebuilding the funds hemorrhaged while I was away. For those who say money can't buy happiness: bull-fucking-shit. Having a few bucks to let you know you won't starve is a hell of a mood-booster.

And suddenly, just about a month ago now, something clicked in my head. For the first time in over two years, I had an idea for something. Characters and stories started flowing; I had the makings for not only a comic series, but an ORIGINAL comic series.

So, what does all this mean? Well, sadly, I think Nuzlocke of Ernie will continue staying on the back burner for who knows how long. I'd love to be able to finish it, since some of you guys actually seemed to like that, but until I feel I can get back to it, I don't think my best would be in it, and as low-tier as it is, I don't wanna churn out something even shittier. I have some insane ideas for it, which I guess in the worst-case scenario I could share sometime if I feel a revival is impossible.

That Sonic project is also on hold, though probably for the best until I can think of a better story for that to go.

Right now, most of the focus will be on this yet-to-be-named comic. The clock's ticking, and I'd like to at least be able to come up with something I can truly call my own entirely; hell, maybe even something that could sell if somebody out there sees it as something people would want to pay for. I don't really have a timeline for when anything will start showing up here, and as you can probably tell, I really fucking suck at keeping promises.

Oh, and as for what this comic entails? Well, I'm still working that out, but think "When Harry Met Sally", except one's a devil, one's an angel, and wouldn't you know it; the threat of Armageddon is looming.

Merry Christmas, man.

You too, dude; even if I'm a bit late on that. Work's kept me busy and unable to draw, so I haven't really checked on things here lately.

Thanks, man, and it’s okay if your reply was a bit late. With that said, though, I hope you’re still doing what you’re doing.

If you are still around dude.....I IMPLORE YOU to look at Kirby Planet Robobot. 

You did something awhile back combining Kirby with one of the best fucking anime of all time. AND NINTENDO MADE IT HAPPEN. 

Don't ask questions. JUST CHECK IT OUT!!!

Oh yeah, I picked that up a while back. I still have yet to finish it, but what I've played so far has been pretty fun. I've also noticed how the game has spawned a ton of Kirby/Gurren Lagann mash-up pics.
