Hey buds, Hot damn it's late! How my body is still functioning is a mystery to science. But while I'm up, I might as well go ahead and post the new DD Yearbook strip! Yep, it's part 6 fo' dat ass! That was gangsta lingo. Are gangstas still cool?
Welp, I guess you can say this particular strip stems from the traumatic childhood experience of going blind. Not completely, just enough that I began to need glasses. As a kid, I had 20/20 vision right up until I didn't. Seemed to happen overnight, really. One day I was spotting pennies on the ground 50 feet away, and the next day I was having trouble reading the goddamn overhead. I've been wearing specs since the 6th grade and as a whole, it hasn't been that bad. They added intrigue to my high school persona and chicks have been generally attracted to them. But, man, in grade school, it was a dif-fer-ent story. I guess it didn't help that I happened to pick the stupidest, ugliest glasses they had. Stupid giant frames.
Naturally, I couldn't give Blondie glasses permanently, because, well, he doesn't wear glasses. If anything, Mr. Brown has worn glasses in the past [link] (now uses contact lenses, by the way). So I gave the kid the ol' lazy eye! He wore 'em for 2 weeks and it fixed him right up. As for Brown's headgear, maybe I'll touch on that in the next flashback series...
Speaking of, there's only 2 more parts left in this Yearbook series! You guys have been great about letting me know how much you're digging this series! Thanks for all the comments and emails! Thanks for reading foos! Hollah! (Again, is are gangstas still cool? Because I'll totally stop if they're not) -John
I know, I know, it's not really a shipwreck so much as a ship about to be wrecked. XD Close enough. Even pirate ships are a bit too much on the technical side for my taste. Oh well.
This rather sexy sea witch is bored and wants to play. Those poor sailors.... I may go back and rework this later, but I'm worried about overdoing it at the moment. I used a photo of a bellydancer from morguefile.com for reference for the sea witch (especially those hands!).
In an attempt to give you guys an update that isn't a meme or a desktop, here's an actual painting. Don't get too excited, it's not new. I started this ages ago for 's "Fall" contest. As you've probably guessed, I didn't make the deadline.
References used. Took me a while to get it finished (life gets in the way, doesn't it?). I also pushed myself here to use more of Painter's tools, since I'd like to get out of my usual oils-blenders-airbrush rut. XD
Blythechild as The Queen of Hearts. (black/white ink drawing for the half page)
This was truly truly the hardest one I worked on for this series...there are so many adaptations and versions of this famous lady...it was really a fight to ignore the influence and stay original.
I decided to be revolutionary and make her "outfit" completely new.
This character is labeled as "blind fury" and mercyless, but I took her more as The goddess Afrodita. Lady which is powerfull and dangerous, thanks to her looks.
I pictured her power not with juwels (she has a little crown and earring in heartshapeform), but with her attire. She is naked. Only clothing she wears is the strange cloak, fastened on neck (looks like it is necklace, but it isn´t ).
Well why that...When one is naked he shows the innerest, he is defenceless. When one is a queen, she is a open book for everyone to look into - she must be cautious, and able to protect her self, and yeat bevare the flair of beeing neutral.
Naked than means~ "I am open, direct, have nothing to hide, but it is not everything what it seems this shell. If you try to attack me, I will be mercyless, since I have to protect myself." Such strong sharp power (nails on fingers) in delicate shape (hands stroking the flamingos.)
For now the series is done. Thank you for your attention Ladys an Gentlemens.

This is a practice picture for me... I have always been weak in drawing real people, so I wish to train more It's also to train my patience too. I tried to spend more time with this one. There's still some mistakes though ; Still, comments and critiques are welcome on this one
all alone in the traffic all sense of the game is long gone mouth twisted up, lips like coal tired of spinning you'll get anything you want

um, nothing to say. just a sketchy sketch. I hardly draw Batman even though he's my favourite comic character... This is practice. Xd will be inked n colored when I'm done wif my current project that's eating my brains. just thot the idea was cute.
