How to use Chopsticks

to eat sweat 'n sour SHRUNKEN HEAD SOUP!!!!!! . . . i know, this is kind of weird. it happens. i was going through my mini-sketchbook from last year, and found this little treasure. had to color it. i think it's actually supposed to be a self-portrait of myself. yes.

HellboyCOLORS (i didn't draw this)

first off - i didn't draw this.
i've been meaning to draw Hellboy FOREVER, but it seems to be one of those things i never get around to doing. so when THIS GUY did, i had to jump on it with some colors. and i added the tail.

Ghost Stories??? Just add fire.

so, i sketched up this ugly mug i lovingly call "fat face." after some ink and proper color treatment, i was playing around with channels in photoshop, and was kinda shocked how sad and stone cold the dude looked without his fire.

for some reason, it's really fun for me to draw exceptionally fat and grotesque things.. always has been.

slightly related side-note: now that all swelling is down on my left hand (from a drive-by paintball shooting saturday), it looks all yellow and sickly.. pictures will come.

Mega Man X9 box art

HOLY EFF BOMBS!!1!11!!!01010001110!!! MEGA MAN X9 IS ACTUALLY OUT?????????????? "

"Comparable to being the 'Luke Skywalker' of the mega man franchise -ultimately bringing balance back to the force with it's debut return to Nintendo, X9 is a thrilling gauntlet run through the falling debris of trust, hope, last chances, and reploid/maverick body parts alike. Finally, capcom has done it again."

check the trailer HERE

that's what they'd be saying if this was an actual game. all mega man copyrights capcom, wii copyrights nintendo - this is just fictional representation of a fan's dream. please, just don't hurt me.
haha... long story short - while coloring this up on the computer, i got the idea to dress it up like a game cover, and while searching for reference material stumbled across some megaman fan-site and also decided to use this as a dirty joke on a bunch of tender hearted, angsty spiteful, unsuspecting nerds. so far the responses have been pretty funny and somewhat rewarding. if the action heats up any more, i'll post a link. but here are some of the highlights thus far:

"Logo is actually pretty good. I make boxart, and this probably wouldn't be it.
-a 14 yr. old kid, occupation - 'video games' and 'graphic designer'

"His buster is too big, and the expression and eye color is way off. Good attempt though."
-a 15 yr. old kid, occupation - 'new generation reploid'

i had all these devious plots to create multiple accounts, and link them to some japanese sites i know of that would serve has free image hosting, to create more legitimacy and false hype... pitting nerds with long histories of friendship against eachother across cyberspace, locked in an epic dual of big talk and unofficial, pretentious wannabe fan-authenticity. though it would have been epic, i have more productive and important things i should be doing in REAL life.

that said, if you happen to be one of the nerds in question (hey, we're all nerds of some kind - calm down) congratulations on finding this blog, or any other random presence i assume on the information super-highway.

for the moment, you can check out the original picture with out logos, etc - HERE
original sketch - HERE

almost forgot - random megaman videos i've enjoyed:
rejected mega man villains
What if MegaMan had lyrics by brentalfloss:
-Mega Man 2 title screen
-Mega Man 2

OH - and SUPER random fact - satruday night, while running, i was the victim of a drive-by paintball shooting. only one paintball hit me, unfortunately it was my drawing hand i used to guard my face, and after cleaning the oozing blood and lots of icing - i had to wait a day later to finish this picture up.

sort of ironic to be shot at, while running, WHILE doing a picture of somebody getting shot at, while running...

LepROCKon!!! Pick your Destiny.

so... this wasn't going to be hardcore irish/leprechaun-y, but one thing led to another, and here we are. plus, he sorta looks like Bono from U2. there's Bono, 'The Edge,' and.... those other two guys who have actual real names, and because of such, i'll never remember who they are.

i had some fun thinking up some hardcore irish metal-esque band names for this guy...

-no more rainbows
-rainbow's raiser (edge?)
-bleeding rainbow
-metal rain

i think my favs would have to be LepROCKon, and no more rainbows.
thoughts? other suggestions?

so - exactly a year later, i'm re-doing the colors on THIS. i figure if Mario's gonna be flingin' around some hardcore fire power, he might as well be sporting the traditional red/white ensemble.

nintendo + dragon ball z = YES
