Sleeping Beauty Color



Yuck. Frame grab from my DVD on the right, jpg from Amazon showing alleged color 'restoration" on sleeping beauty on the left. It looks more like they did the crudest imaginable level and contrast cranking. Super saturated is rarely good.

Gun Fighter



No one in Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford wore the traditional wide brimmed cowboy hat. So I drew this Gunsmoke looking guy as I watched it. Good movie and photos of the era probably show the exact style of hat they are wearing. The wide brimmed hat is probably a cow herding, farmer innovation.

Creepshow



Pretty good E G Marshall. Not so good Fritz Weaver

Google and the street view of my Parent's house




I thought Google street view was just about major cities and larger streets. This view of my folks home is residential Oklahoma and couldn't be more nondescript. Seriously completest of Google

Daily Gut Guy



The zombie type on the left started as an attempt to invent a beautiful high cheekboned female face.
The square female face below is a quick note while watching the show COMMUNITY

Index cards catch the debris of my mind

In ten minutes you'll be smoking in Hell!



The face top left came about from sketching while watching VENOM. 80's movie with Oliver Reed and Klaus Kinski. Even though it fails to look like Kinski, I still enjoy the notes I made on the drawing. It's vague Kinski and might prompt some other character design notion.

Flash Boards




This is probably a good start. Lots of effects. Need to produce a couple of sound files eventually.
Sequence reads top to bottom vs left to right. I did them on index cards.

The Smallest Robot



I like the little one legged robot design the best

Where the Doodles Go from now On.





I'm going to quit junking up the Tuesday Art Group with my truly random doodles. This is the destination Blog for that level of art effort henceforth.

Who'll Stop The Rain Frame Grabs

Frame grabs from a part of Who'll Stop The Rain.
I was fascinated with the idea there might have been a time (1969 or 1970) when a person could go up a Canyon road around Malibu and soon arrive at hippie quonset huts.
The film is 1978 but is portraying the Viet Nam era.







Jeff going Away



Going away party. Jeff going to Austin. Too expensive and job scarce in CA

Profiles from Route 66





Quick ref of male profiles. Mainly noting how much more room there is from the nose to the ear than most artists draw when drawing without reference. A brain has to fit in the skull but people shorten and compact the roominess needed for the back of the skull.

Tat Idea




Sophie just happened to have a mole lined up with that left side eye. Do tat artists puncture moles? Uck.

I added one of my own cartoons as a tattoo idea so I'm not mocking Krayonzilla.

Rough done over a Gray layer



I prefer to sketch over a gray color vs the white. Less of a strain on the eyes.

Lighten Rough- Bring up White Layer



Change the opacity of the rough to onionskin it.
