My first Star Wars drawing

Work's partially done. For the time being, I have it painted monochromatically. Hope to have this fully colored sometime soon.

In the meantime, here's Boba Fett:

And here's the final product (for now)

Holidays are Here!

Only a few more days until my family finally visits my fiancee's . . . with less than five months to go until the wedding. Oh well. It needs to happen later than never. So I'll be off in Birmingham for a few days, but not before I finish off some fanart for a Christmas contest. I'll also be dogsitting this Saturday, so maybe that'll give me some free time to draw . . . or to vegetate in front of the TV and watch the Boomerang channel.

+15 points if you can guess the characters below (Hint: they're from Star Wars)

The Fett man will be added in later digitally, and I may color this (hopefully all before Saturday).

One more day of work left, and then I finally have a weekend!! Woohoo!!!

Though, I probably shouldn't complain. My fiancee Nikki has currently been working 50 hrs this week designing the layout for Hilton Head Monthly. I'm so proud of her!

And I've got some things to look forward to this weekend. 1) Paying off the first bill for my student loans! 2) Buying my plane tickets to the NY Comic Con! 3) Christmas shopping! 4) Going to see my best mate graduate from UNC! My friend Eric had majored in Japanese and he hopes to teach English in Japan. Here's his unupdated blog from his two visits in Japan ---> blog.

As with all my posts, I need to post some new art. Luckily, I've been doodling for some Spider-man pages for my portfolio. The script is for issue #112 of Ultimate Spider-man.
Never drew a Hummer before, and the script called for one, so here's my first attempt! And, uh, mind the glass roof that is customary for all Hummers to have . . . <_<
I can't wait to draw this thing all busted up!

I'm drawing the first six pages of the issue, which introduces Shocker, a throw-away villain from the Spidey series. The villain has these vibro-sound blasters that creates miniature sonic booms. I thought it would be fun to make him more . . . home-made, so I've created his sound guns to be modified hair dryers. And . . . uh, they're also currently invisible.

The Holidays Are Showing Their Ugly Side

Business is picking up at the workplace! I have to work seven days in a row, all eight-hour shifts, aside from two days that will grant me with nine hour shifts.

But I have a goal to reach (namely paying off my student loans) and sometimes that means sacrificing time (and a little sanity) to get things done.

In the meantime, I have some sketches here I can drop off.

The good news is I work at a place where I'm not pestered with listening to the same holiday album since October.
