Street Fighter: Cammy

Never been much of a gamer. I can't even remember the last time I played a game of Street Fighter. But I know a little bit about a little bit. I've always been a huge fan of the Street Fighter character designs and this version of Cammy is one of my favorites. Sorry for the lateness!

On the Scene!

This is Ibuki from Street Fighter III/IV. I tend to main her every now and then. Glad that she made it in Super Street Fighter IV.

And in THIS Corna...

The Mighty Balrog by Samax Amen


Dudley, from Street Fighter 3, soon to be added to the ranks of SF 4.  One of my favorite characters.

Chun Li

Here ya go Ladies and Gents. here is this weeks sketch from yours truly. I chose Chun Li, simply for the fact that I have always liked her design. This week is a tad different though. Instead of using my typical inks for this, I tried out some nibs and quils that I purchased just today. This was my first shot at using quils to ink with, and for the most part, I am pretty pleased at this being my first run.

Hope you like.

Street Fighter: Dhalsim VS. Blanka

More experimenting, specifically with cell shading and color holds/line effects.

I’ve only played Street Fighter I (I know, I know) and these were my two favorite characters. I was big into games in my teens, but have little time for it now. Honestly, I was more of a Mortal Kombat kinda’ kid.

Speaking of, I think I have my next theme.

Street Fighter: Juri vs. Ken

I decided to take a shot at one of the new Super Street Fighter IV characters--Juri Han. I liked her design, so here's a shot of her whooping Ken's ass. Didn't get a chance to color this as I'd originally wished, on account of my workload, so I threw down some quick halftones.

Street Fighter: Sakura

This week's theme is Street Fighter, so I went with a little Sakura practicing her fireball abilities! I was going back and forth between characters, it's really hard to pick one. Then, I kept thinking about Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and how much I'd like to draw those characters...but I had to force myself to pick somebody, so I went with Sakura!

Total Protonic Reversal

Man, I took way too long on this thing. But I had to make sure it looked good! The Ghostbusters deserve it. Played around with this piece a little, tried doing kind of a faux zip-a-tone thing with the shading. Tried really hard to get all of their likenesses down. I meant to have a cigarette hanging off of Ray's lip (it's even in the rough I did) but when I got to the final drawing I totally forgot about it. Anyway, hope you dig it!

Stantz & Slimer

here's my entry for this week! I chose Ray Stantz, as portrayed by Dan Aykroyd. Hope I captured his likeness. And I had to do a piece with Slimer, since he's so closely identified with the franchise! Originally, I had several ghosts from the films looming in the background, but it was looking too cluttered, so I just kept it as Ray & Slimer.

Who you gonna call?

I'm going to be trying out different things for this here sketchblog, the first of which is doing quick, looser sketches, keeping as much of the initial shapes and movement as I can.

It's also a good opportunity to experiment with some different Photoshop brushes and textures.

True Love by Brent Peeples

I am not much of a color guy, so most of my pieces will be in Black and White. Maybe one day I will surprise you with my horrible coloring skills. LOL. Hope you dig. See ya next week.

Shout Out to my man Ernie Hudson!

finally got this done... I copied the background and bartender from a comic I did last year, because that's how the eff I roll! you'll be happy to know that the story this came from (The World As You Know It: Permanent Residents) was about a hotel that's haunted by lots of ghosts... so this pic is actually in continuity! anyways, I knew I wanted to draw Ernie's character shouting that line from the movie, because I think it's hilarious... I spent the last week thinking of funny situations for him to say it (at church, on the bus, at an elementary school career day, etc) but this one was within my immediate reach, and it was getting late...
hope y'all like it!

I Ain't Afraid of No Ghost

I was actually watching both movies on Hulu when drawing this piece. I challenged myself to play with shades and highlights and have thicker lines. I'm really satisfied with the results and hopefully I can whip a better illustration next time.


I did this one traditionally in front of my students. I was taping off the sections near the jagged bits so I could cut them with x-acto to create a clean edge. However, once I saw how the tape looked, it had that collage-vibe to it, which I couldn't deny! The colors were done with some fluid acrylics. You'll notice that I like to change things up a lot depending on what I'm working on.

Ghostbusters by Vinh-Luan Luu

[image: Slimer; ink on 4-1/2" x 7" Canson Bristol,
colored in photoshop]
I've recently bought a small Canson Make Your Own Manga Book; it's pretty neat. It's a bit more disposable than a nice moleskin and a notch above a regular sketchbook. I'll probably be doing most of my sketches in that for this blog.

Evan Bryce

Hi, my name is Evan Bryce, and I am an art teacher here in the greater Metroplex. I've been working in comics since I was in college, starting off as a color production assistant, aka 'flatter' on multiple books, most notably The Hunger for Speakeasy and later Markosia. I had a story in Negative Burn, and I've had pin-ups in books such as Crimeland, Astounding Wolf-Man, Brit, and Supermarket: Cash Money Edition. I am also a frequent contributer on Project Rooftop. I've also had an article on Newsarama.

Right now I am having fun with art, as I have fun with teaching! Being an awesome teacher (the students' words not mine) is a rewarding job, I get to work with amazing students, and I get to be a mentor.

Check out my art on my DeviantArt Page , also, I have original work for sale, and can be commissioned for work through Cadence Comic Art.

Joe Eisma

Hey everyone! My name's Joe Eisma, and I'm a freelance comic and game artist. I've been drawing my whole life, with minimal formal teaching. Since 2005 I've been working in comics, and some of my works include We The People from Outlaw Entertainment, and Serpo from Devil's Due Publishing.

Currently, I'm working for Image Comics on a couple of titles: Existence 3.0 from Shadowline, and Notorious, the upcoming backup storyline in Dynamo 5. I'm most excited for my upcoming series, Morning Glories, which will be out August 2010.

Paul Milligan

Call me Ishmael. On second thought just stick with Paul. I draw comics. Been doing that since I can remember. Some might call me passionate. Some might call me crazy. Some might even call me fat, but that isn't very nice and has nothing to do with what we're talking about here. Under the banner of Stumblebum Studios I and my Stumblebum compatriots self-published several anthologies and one-shots including Mars 1938, The Bradley Boys Adventure Magazine and It Came From Stumblebum. Since 2008 I've been working with writer David Hopkins on Souvenir of Dallas, a one-page comic appearing in D Magazine every other month. Most recently I became a member of that ancient and illustrious order of ink-slinging atomic space knights, Space-Gun Studios and released God of Rock, an 80-page collection of my 24-Hour comic trilogy starring... er... The God of Rock. Currently I'm hard(ly) at work on a 48-page one-shot, Dash Bradley and The Flying Fortresses of Death and How To Lose Big, a graphic novel written by David (him again?) Hopkins. Please love me.
