First things first! I forgot to mention in the comic blog post that I put those KB posters up for sale. I'm also selling leftover K-On and Vocaloid prints from my dA journal, which you can email me if you're interested in. Order while supplies last?! (read: at any time probably)




Kicking off a new drawing blog post with Miss Millia Rage, of Guilty Gear. Drawn traditionally on 11x17 paper and colored digitally. I'm pretty proud of this one!


I'm not a huge fan of fighting games in general, but I love the look and feel of GG. The character designs and music are especially awesome. (Check out Millia's theme, for instance). Nothing like constant rock music and ridiculous anime graphics to draw me to a game! My favorite character is actually May, who I'm working on a picture of right now. Will probably be in the next blog :3




Work in progress on a school assignment! We were given three scenes to choose from to illustrate; I chose a scene involving two detectives looking over a corpse while a crowd gathers. Couldn't resist cameo time, so Reed and Cho have taken up jobs as detectives. ALTERNATE CONTINUITY!?


I've changed some details since scanning this and started inking it already. I'll post the finished version up next time!








Here's an assignment for Drawing for Sequential, a more realistic anatomy-related class taught by Tom Lyle (of Spider Man fame!). Not especially proud of this (I'm aware of the problems with leg lengths and head sizes, baw) but I wanted to show you guys a good reason for why I'm only updating KB once a week nowadays! DAMN THOSE BOOKS!



Aaaand rounding things off with a drawing of good ol' Raccoon. Which you can tell by the date was drawn a while ago and forgotten about.




I've got a lot of half-finished things in my folder, so I'm excited to show you guys some of them when they're finished next week! I hope some of you are enjoying these posts XD Seeya Tuesday for the next KB page!

Drawing blog is back! Though a bit late, because I managed to turn a 6pm nap into a 6PM-9AM bedtime. Ahahaaaa sleep deprivation.

Oofa, traditional colors are always hard to scan right. Thus this is probably over- or under-saturated depending on your monitor.
Anyhoo, it's a 11x17 illustration of Steffi and Ben, being at their most intimate, which isn't saying much. My weapon of choice for traditional colors is prisma colored pencils, which I both love and hate for various reasons and past screwups. I'm actually pretty proud of this one though! I may have to mess around coloring some of my smaller pieces of original art.



Speaking of messing around with traditional materials, I've been trying to overcome my fear of brush pens. This ended up with some areas being way too thick and unruly, but eh 'tis experimentation! ... And it is a female version of Ben, yes. 'Cause I felt like it! Female Benzene is named Benzine, geeeeeeet it?






Also Maple the corgi 'cause gffraawwfff so cute dog gonna steal her. Also brush pen.

Hey guys! Cube here with my first regular thursday blog post! Today I'll just exhibit a few of the drawings I've been doing during/for classes.

If you follow my twitter, you mighta seen the B+W version of this already. I definitely like the colored version more though :< It's Reed and his dad, naturally enough. It's actually a big 11x17 B+W illustration, which I may put up on the original art page for like 40 bucks if anyone's interested. 'Tis the kind of shit I draw during art history class.


This is a classroom assignment for "Materials and Techniques" class. It's just pencils that I thresholded and filled in the spot blacks of. We had to include our choices of several elements. Mine ended up being a recognizable Savannah location, a couple fighting, and a moped. Just a sillything.






This one was kinda inspired by the work of Eric Canete, who visited SCAD this week. His awesome strong-legged women and cool graphic backgrounds really stuck with me. So I showed it by drawing this ridiculous 42 on an 8.5x11 cardstock :< Canete's work is really awesome, and you should check it out. He was also a super cool nice guy and gave some great talks in my classes and at a workshop.


That's all for this week! I hope it was somewhat worthwhile XD Next week I'll have a completed prismacolor picture of Steffi and Ben that you tweet people have seen some of the progress on. And of course some other things, but not sure what yet! Hearts Hearts.

First, schedule talk.
I have indeed decided to move KB to once a week for now, at least until the end of the quarter. (Which is technically in what, five weeks? TIME!) This week the new page will go up Thursday, but from next week on all pages will go up on Tuesday, with blog posts on Thursday. The posts will mostly contain stuff I'm drawing for fun and school and such, as well as other goings on if you're interested.

Speaking of goings on...!


Exp Con was AWESOME! Especially for my first con, things went great. I was able to make back the money I spent on the hotel and products, as well as some extra! More importantly, however, I met a surprising number of fans! There was, of course, the Raccoon cosplayer (shown above) who was incredibly adorable and cool! She even drew me a few pieces of fanart which were awesome. There was also a staffer that commissioned me to draw on the back of his badge while asking me questions about the intricacies of KB. I was really surprised how much people like it already! I guess a year and a half is technically a decent amount of time, but it feels like a tiny baby comic in a lot of respects. I was really touched by everyone who came by and gave me kind words! I was especially excited any time someone told me about friend(s) of theirs who were also fans. The implication of people talking to other people about my comics makes me giddy! Also a big thanks to my friend Tina, who sat by me through the whole con and helped out a ton. Someday I shall force her to exhibit herself!




My panel was lost at some point during schedule rearrangements, but that was totally fine with me 'cause I still got a special badge and a spot in the booklet yo. The pamphlet was pretty cool since they designed it to look like a game guide : ) The Miki cosplayer (who you can see on that top collage) was also awesome!


The most popular items were definitely the Pokemon minis and con commissions. I offered a free doodle of any pokemon on the back of the minis, and people seemed to really like them. Several passersby came over and said things like "Oh, YOU'RE the one who drew this comic! It's hilarious!" which made me gigglefest smiletimes. I'm really glad Kel of Sorcery 101 suggested bringing some.


The commissions were everything from original characters to portraits of the commissioners to fanart, and they were all a ton of fun. I think my favorite set was a pair of middleschool twins who were walking around with their parents. They both commissioned a fanart piece from me (Konata of Lucky Star, then Lightning of FFXIII) and asked if they could watch me draw 'em. It was so cute gaaaaah! I wish I remembered to take pictures of everything I drew. The one on the right is an OC of Dege's, who ran the artist alley and was responsible for my free table at the con. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Dege! It was an incredibly invigorating experience. I am so ready to get back into the swing of drawings comics! ... Right after I study for this test. BAH!




Gonna look into the most cost-efficient-yet-sturdy way to ship posters as well, since I've got some left of all of 'em. Will update you guys on that if I ever figure it out!
Love you guys!

So I'm headed off to exp con this morning! Way too excited considering it isn't a huge con or anything, but I feel like it's my first step towards being a money-makin' artist type person~! >:0
KB shall return on Tuesday. I think I am going to stick to just Tuesday updates for a while, with blogs on thursday if you're interested in what I'm up to with comics homework and whatnot.

The four people up there are the four mascots I was asked to design for the con. They're all based on pretty recognizable turn-based strategy RPG classes. There's gonna be a girl dressed as the black mage there! Will show you pictures of course >:0
