Talk to Brent:

Mister J



Hello! I've been a bit under the weather this week, but I've still managed to do a fair amount of artwork! This beauty was supposed to be for Watercolor Wednesday, but it also fits for Fan Art Friday! I tried, the "messy" look for this picture of the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series (which truly is the definitive Batman cartoon). I hope you like it Missvirginia! Thanks for visiting my blog so often!

I've also redrawn 5 out of the 20 pages of Tantum Gray #1, and I'm hoping to have the remaining 15 pages done by the end of February. I'm still working on Erika's pieces for her office, but what I have finished looks amazing (in my opinion, and Erika agrees). I'm also working on a steampunk piece that I've been commissioned for
and I'm really excited about it!

As for next week, I already have suggestions for Monday and Friday, but Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are still available for requests!

So this is what I decided to draw for Monster Monday: a mechanical version of one of my favorite Pokemon, Nidoking. I'm going to paint him tomorrow and post in on facebook and deviantART--and it will look even better! I think I may draw some other Pokemon as steampunk creations as well...

(I just saw why that isn't a commonly used acronym!)

Besides showing off this lovely doodle of mine, I wanted to clarify the request process for my sketches:
  • You may request a sketch for any category at any time--it doesn't have to be the day of.
  • Multiple requests on any category are fine--don't feel bad if someone beat you to it. I will either save your request for the next week or use my twisted imagination to combine requests.
  • Leave your request as a comment on any post and I will sketch it as soon as I can!

As requested by Trisha: Jim Carrey in his tuxedo from Dumb and Dumber. I based this off of a screenshot from the film. Erika said I probably spent too much time on this piece--mostly she thinks the paint is too beautiful for the subject matter--but I assured her it was worth it!

Tomorrow is "Theme-less Thursday," and you can request absolutely anything you want (within reason). I'd seriously love any and all suggestions! Just post them in the comments below!

I didn't have any official requests for Tangible Tuesday, but I did have a request from a friend on deviantART to draw an eye on the computer. I decided to draw my wife Erika's eye. I actually did the piece in color, but you'll have to visit it on deviantART if you want to see that!

Tomorrow is Watercolor Wednesday! I'd love to hear your suggestions!

As requested: Steven beating me at dodgeball! I'm not quite sure why you wanted this, but I hope it makes all your dreams come true!

Today I finished the inks for a piece I'm doing for Erika. I also shaved my "beard" for her--she's going to be so happy when she sees it!
Tomorrow is Fan Art Friday, so ask away!

I didn't get any requests for Watercolor Wednesday, so Erika suggested I do a Cheshire Cat study as a prep for some paintings I'm doing for her office. I got a little crazy with the colors, but I had a lot of fun!

Tomorrow is Theme-less Thursday, so you can request anything! Just post your ideas in the comments section below and I'll do my best to bring them to life...or know...draw them!

I couldn't find a good way to combine all of the monster requests, so I did two pics for Monster Monday! The first is my version of a Baku haunted elder tree for Devin, and the second my scary version of Cookie Monster for Steven (I also added Ian to this one as requested by Rachel on my facebook page). I know the Cookie Monster is kind of twisted, but I did base his pose off of a Goya painting!

I was slow at posting this week, so we'll skip right to Watercolor Wednesday as far as requests go. Let me know what you want in the comments below!
Today's picture is my new version of Tantum Gray page 1! I've been working on it for a few days, and I'm quite proud of it! I'm thinking of redoing some other pages as well, but this is my first attempt so see if it will be worth it. I think the answer is yes.

I've decided to try giving this blog a daily theme. That way you'll have an idea of what to expect from the art each day and you'll also have the opportunity to tell me what to draw.

I've posted the schedule on the right side of the page. Monday's theme is Monster Monday, so leave any requests in the comment section of this post and I'll do my best to incorporate them into Monday's sketch!

Hello! The recent holidays wreaked havoc on my "daily blog" thing, but here I am again!

Thanks to everyone who has been commenting on these posts! It means a lot to me! To the right you will see one of my recent doodles. I also finished a piece for a contest yesterday that I posted on deviantART--just click here to see it.

In the spirit of making this blog worthwhile to more people than just me, my question for today is: What can I change and/or add to these daily posts that will make them more worth your time?

Thanks a ton!
