Free Comic Book Day- I worked for nothing

Did a lot of sketches on free comic book day. And you fans of my podcast ability, did another one of those. The subject was the Pulps. I'll post a link to that in about a week.

Regret not getting more shots of the work I did. Probably did 5 an hour for 6 hours.

I say I worked for nothing. Got a 100 dollar commission out of it.
More sketches on Tumblr
 Hard at it. Doing my 10.1 minute sketches. Notice the hand blur.

 More angles. I hate picture taking of me unless it's me doing it. Selfies are best where I'm concerned.

A couple of kickass Thors, A Hawkeye,
Two Batmans, A Batgirl, etc. Lots of undocumented that were pretty fun sketches. Grr.

My funniest moment, I had a batarang not completely done and I asked the kid ( boy about 5) to fill it in for me. Gave him a sharpy. His dad " was saying "Stay inside the line!" the kid just went all over and made a blob of it. We had a good laugh. I put the kid's initials on the "batarang."

A She Hulk and all the ones I mention on the Tumblr. I was whipping it out.

And a cool HarleyQuinn. We had an assistant running around for reference.
Guy requested "Winter Soldier" Get back the ref, figuring I'm doing good. Then someone says "Good Bucky."

I'm mortified. It's done and the kid is getting Bucky, not Winter Soldier. Then I learned...I'd better not ruin it for you.

Did a Guinn? , someone in a leather jacket from Walking Dead.

No dinosaurs. Did a Superman that was pretty iconic. Grr again.

This is close to complete. May be complete.
Close to what I figure I averaged an hour.
There was no down time.
6.5 hours
33 drawings
5.1 drawings an hour ( I figured 5)

I used reference on every thing but Doc Ock- Superman- Batman

The biggest fail was a tie between She Hulk and Garfield

Venom vs Steam Punk Puppy
Shadow The Hedgehog
Wonder Woman
Green Arrow
She Hulk
Negan-(Walking Dead- Leather Jacket- Baseball Bat)
Bucky-Winter Soldier
NOVA (Kid with a power helmet)
Sailor Moon
V for Vendetta
Doc Ock
Optimus Prime
The Crow
2 Thor
3 Spiderman (Everyone had seen the movie or was on their way to see it)
2 Batman
3 Deadpool
3 Rocket Raccoon (the story of the show as a projection for Guardian of the Galaxy success)

I forgot. Did a Hulk. 34 drawings. 5.23 an hour.

34 drawings. That feels right.

SWEET! Sounds like you had a blast!

MrGoodson2 said...

I did Rick. It was fun.

Add 1 Iron Man. Amazing. I believe that amounts to almost total recall of what I sketched.
35 drawings-6.5 hours
5.38 drawings an hour. Smidge over 10 minuets a drawing.
I'm a mchine

Thanks Marty. I found it very gratifying. And If I could do it for a living I would.
