Deadpool and a Guitar


I was going to do minimal coloring due to my busy schedule today, yet it still took longer than the others did this week.  Inks was running low, and I had to stroke over my lines multiple times. Other details, such as the guitar, also played a huge factor in why it took so long.

  • Penciling: 1 hour, 42 minutes
  • Inking: 2 hours, 14 minutes
  • Coloring & Editing: 20 minutes
  • Total: 4 hours, 16 minutes



… And Nightcrawler, too!

  • Penciling: 55 minutes
  • Inking: 37 minutes
  • Coloring: 1 hour, 39 minutes
  • Total: 3 hours, 11 minutes

Kitty Pryde


I got… Kitty Pryde!

  • Penciling: 45 minutes
  • Inking: 28 minutes
  • Coloring: 1 hour, 55 minutes
  • Total: 3 hours, 8 minutes



I got… Colossus…

  • Penciling: 1 hour
  • Inking: 55 minutes
  • Coloring: 2 hours
  • Total: 3 hours, 55 minutes

Simply Ness


Hope everyone had a good Mother’s Day today with their moms.  Before I move onto my next theme, here’s a picture of Ness from one of my favorite role playing games back in the day, Earthbound (aka MOTHER 2 in Japan). While the story centers around a boy going on an adventure to collect the 8 melodies and save the future from an evil alien, there have been a few people (including video game streamers) who have given this a play through on Mother’s Day.

  • Penciling: 14 minutes
  • Inking: 13 minutes
  • Coloring: 29 minutes
  • Total: 56 minutes

As a side note, if there are any drawings I didn’t do for a previous theme(i.e. Doctor Strange for Marvel Week), I will return to them later in the year. For instance, on a week where nothing’s going on, I can do “Video Games Week, Round 2.” Another instance is when Avengers: Infinity War comes out on video, I can do “Marvel Week, Round 2,” as well. Anything I didn’t draw before can and will be done at a later date.

The Great Dictator


“Window” – Album Leaf

These past couple days this week, I’ve been showing you films I grew up with.  Most of them being from the 1980s (with the exception of Young Frankenstein, released in 1974). To close this week’s theme of film classics, I’m going to go further back to the year 1940, with The Great Dictator. I discovered this back in 2012, when I was browsing through Youtube videos on 3D animation. One video I came across was titled, “Dictator,” by username Shwiggan. Made in Source Film Maker, it’s an assortment of video clips using models from Team Fortress 2. What made this video great, to me, was the audio portion, with dialogue from the late Charlie Chaplin and music by Album Leaf. This audio juxtaposition created an powerful and emotional response. I had to search for the film it came from afterwards.  When I finally saw it, I was impressed by how a film that’s over 75 years old could grab my attention, with its mixture of satire, comedy, and even drama. Not only was Charlie Chaplin’s speech moving at the end, it still rings relevant even to this day.

  • Penciling: 53 minutes
  • Inking: 46 minutes
  • Shading: 2 hours, 12 minutes
  • Total: 3 hours, 51 minutes

Next Week (After Mother’s Day): With Deadpool 2 coming shortly, I will be doing X-men art.

Eddie and Simply Roger


Eddie Valiant and Roger Rabbit, the two leads in the film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  My discovery of this film was nothing out of the ordinary.  Nonetheless, it was the first crossover movie I saw, mixing characters not only from Disney and Warner Brothers, but also Fleischer Studios, MGM, and more. Speaking of crossovers, I saw this as an opportunity to mix my two art styles together, and I really felt like coloring to further distinguish the two.

  • Penciling: 1 hour, 17 minutes
  • Inking: 1 hour, 6 minutes
  • Coloring: 2 hours, 41 minutes
  • Total: 5 hours, 04 minutes

Googie Man


This was something I was working on while attending a small event for Free Comic Book Day. Of course, I didn’t start coloring until I got home.  Based on a thumbnail drawing I did long ago, during my Kirby Krackle/Googie phase.  Inspired by the form of architecture it was named after, Googie Man is that classic style superhero of the 1950s and early 60s.  With his super strength, super leap, and the power of Googie Rays, Googie Man fights a battle against the ankle biters of the criminal underworld that are just cruisin’ for a bruisin’.

  • Penciling: 49 minutes
  • Inking: 31 minutes
  • Coloring 1 hour, 3 minutes

Next Week: Film Classics.
