Little Ninja
Originally uploaded by withoutscruples
Well, I'm still recovering from my first 24 hour comic day... I was there for 22 and half hours. I was actually only drawing like 50% of the time. The rest ot the time I spent smoking outside, thinking of what to draw next and sitting around listening to other people talk. I was the least nerdiest person there. OMG.

It was brutal, but fun. I went in there with no clue what I was going to do. I eventually decided to use this ninja that I drew like a few weeks ago while I was working in France. Some bastards showed up with scripts and page thumbnails.

I'll post my comic when I get it back.

I feel this huge sense of accomplishment. that I actually sat there and finished a fucking comic. Now, I'm inspired. Now, I'm finally working on my fantasy comic. And, I'm totally going back again next year.

More designs!



 
I think those last three drawings of Clarence make him look like a muppet. I love it. I want all zombies to look like muppets. I've been inspired by the Hernandez brothers lately. Their style of drawing is nothing like my own, but I want to ink just like them! They have a realy simple inking style, and a perfect use of blacks. You can see I added a lot more black to Redd.

Not a fantastic video or a fantastic song, but a fantastic concept of editing a movie in real time.

Hey, so I was talking to a dude on aim, and I was talking about how if I never get hired to a design firm, I would start my own design firm. Then we bullshitted about how all the logos would involve vampires or poop or something bizarre that a client would hate. Then, for the hell of it, I came up with the logo, complete with poop:


Now a quick bit of history, when I first started subscribing to art magazines, for company name, I would put down awesome dude, that way when i got the magazine in the mail, it would be addressed to Matt Raney, Awesome Dude. So if I ever started a design firm, it would be called Awesome Dude. Hell, it would have to be called awesome dude.

Anyway, back to reality, oops there goes gravity, I really REALLY don't like the way heyraney.com turned out. I don't regret the learning process and I still think the portfolio portion turned out kind of neat-o, but the red background is garish and the code is sloppy as hell. Go ahead, source view it, its a rat's nest.

So now I'm redoing the website and wanted a for real logo, so I reused the awesome dude, and hell, I actually like it better. better flow, more bull-ness, but sadly, less bull shit.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, Mike re-ignited my love affair with rockwell and rockwell condensed.


Hope everything is well in your part of the world.

Guess what? My fantasy comic stars UNICORNS.
Here is the main character. She is the good guy (she is not a guy she is a girl)


And here are a few different designs for the bad guy

My fantasy comic sketch... (The only good one.)


I'm trying really hard to do this fantasy comic. Why is writing so hard? WTF?

At first, I made the wizard some stoner guy, but then, I thought it'd be funnier if he was tiny and cute. Also, at first, I made the Valkyrie super sexy, then decided to hold back so she's only super sexy without her helmet on.
