Boy, feels like I haven’t drawn in a while! Well, not my own stuff anyway. I’ve been thinking about drawing more samurais for a few weeks. I love that they’re something so ancient yet can be combined to look so futuristic. And you can never draw a samurai “wrong”. So I drew one with a skeleton bursting out of it because a skeleton bursting out of something makes everything better (not me though).
Inspired by Masters of the Universe‘s Mer-man, I decided to draw this oceanic terror extra gross and goopy. I sort of forced myself to color him last minute, but couldn’t agree on a color scheme. So I uploaded both versions. I’m selling some prints of both color schemes at my store if interested. Stickers as well (he loves adorning water bottles).
Also, here’s an interview with me from the Google Web Creators blog about my Ninja Turtle musings and this very site! They’ll also be sharing my art and junk through their insta as well as many other awesome web creators’ projects.
Daredevil has been my favorite superhero since the sixth grade. Ironically, I rarely draw him. That maybe because of his costume appearing so plain and never being able to make him look “right”. I’ve found that it’s best to draw Daredevil by barely drawing him at all. Focus on my shadows representing what you don’t see. And that’s what I did with this piece. I’m not a background guy, so I figured this was a good excuse to work on that.
Once I called it quits I decided to do a simple animation of Daredevil’s “Radar-sense” superpower as it’s been portrayed in the classic comics. I’m not thrilled with my drawing but I learned a little more about backgrounds , halftone patterns, and making your shadows do the detail work for you. When drawing difficult subjects, it’s best to tackle them just like Daredevil himself: Without fear!
