doodled bones and kirk while watching star trek 3 the search for spock
hadn’t seen it in years (you can read my inauthentic haiku review on letterboxd where i’ve been writing inauthentic haiku reviews for the latest movies i’ve watched)
admittedly kirk in this doodle is a little more ‘wrath of khan’ than ‘search for spock’ (i love the ‘wrath of khan’ uniforms)
and man, shatner’s likeness is way more difficult to capture than deforest kelley’s. something about kirk’s posture in this sketch helped quite a bit
previous star trek mentions on screentone:
my star trek fan shirt
star trek fan poster in the illustration portfolio
more love for the star trek 2 wrath of khan wardrobe
for some reason i can’t make a new comics collection for these, but if you’d like to catch up, here’s a link
i’m starting to dig these guys
my series of sh•••y drawings continues with peter parker burning the midnight oil
i think i forgot to draw his left arm
is this drawing too sh•••y? can you tell he’s in a dark room looking through a microscope at a sample
well tomorrow’s sh•••y drawing will be better. (though honestly it could be worse.)
a sh•••y prowler ink and watercolor sketch based on my memory of the character from the new spidey-verse movie. go see it. it’s so good
killer cartoonists ed piskor and jim rugg‘s cartoonist kayfabe coverage of wizard magazine has got me drawing all these sh•••y drawings of superheroes i haven’t drawn in decades…

spidey swinging home after a long day of spider-manning
i like to think that his costume is in a constant state of repair. hastily stitched together.
and his webbing, though awesome, is never quite perfect. every batch a little different.
- a little fountain pen action and some brush pen on top of pencil
- those crayola markers that kids use but it just soaked up the ink, (not waterproof) and made the whole thing pretty dark
- spidey’s left foot colored in with an orange and red colored pencils
i’ve been working on today’s strip for-ev-er and my results are still mediocre. a frustrating lack of skill
i’ve got so many versions of this that look even worse
i’ll have to post them some time
since this strip works best horizontal, it will probably look best for you here (and it’s in color)
you can also view a color version here
another new steps strips for the 30 days of comics
old snake from metal gear solid 4
eating some watermelon in a bombed out building
this ones a bit of a hot mess
you can tell its a hot mess because i had to explain the drawing
here’s the sketch
inktober 2018 is over:(
its been a…slice
a little metal gear solid 3 action with volgin giving snake a jolt
you even get the sketch
where else can you get deals like this
day 29: double
so here’s a little paper, rock, scissors between twin snakes; metal, and liquid
its hard to believe that this inktober is winding down already…
it’s been so much fun, and somehow, less stressful than last year
i don’t know if my results have been any better, but the schedule was easier to keep for some reason
hopefully i can keep it up because i’m going to head right in to 30 days of comics in november.
follow along so you only miss a post when i do
what’s in the box?
it’s a cardboard box!
very useful in the metal gear franchise
had no idea, but according to the metal gear wiki, raiden translates to ‘thunder and lightning’ or ‘thunder god’ in japanese… so today, a raiden sketch
day 26 stretch
forgot my waterproof ink so no washes today
drew snake’s left leg way too long in the sketch but corrected it on the inks
i may have mentioned this before, once or twice, but i haven’t played mgs5 so i can’t say for sure that there isn’t a porcupine suit in the game.
and since this is the third one of these i’ve done, i guess this makes it a ‘running gag.’
i’ll just show myself out…
took a bunch of sketches to get here but here we are.
a little 4 panel action with raiden and a gekko from mgs4 for day 24: chop
update: maybe it helps to see this piece like this:
a sketch i didn’t ink.
a sketch i did ink but didn’t love.
a third one i just went ink on. no pencil sketch underneath. its pretty frank miller-y.
im not crazy about any of them but…deadlines.
the fury and snake again from mgs3
we revisit the fury and snake from mgs3 and day 3
to anyone with more inking experience than me: its getting increasingly difficult for my brush to keep a fine point, making it very frustrating to use – does that mean its time to get a new brush?
one of the stranger threats in a bonkers game, mgs2, was the ‘fatman.’ he was a master bomb builder who also wore roller blades and kind of looked like uncle fester
here’s some process shots from sketch to first ink lines to final wash
I can’t decide if I should’ve added the ink wash or not
anyway. inktober metal gear continues. day 13. guarded.
catch up on days 1 – 12 here
And that’s not a cake floating out there. It’s a ration. They float in the mgs games.
I haven’t played Metal Gear Solid V, so I can’t say for sure that there is not a whale suit in the game.
