Inktober 2018, Day 7: The Great Unclean One
At some point around the first week of every Inktober, I get to that point where I draw an ugly face with a secondary light source. Today, we've reached that point. Also, more Warhammer because I'm a terminal supergeek.

Inktober 2018, Day 6: Cyber-Skull
Welp, that lasted all of two days before I fell off the wagon. I can truly, honestly say that it was impossible for me to spend any time at the drawing board these last three days, though, unless posting a picture of a stick figure counts.

Anyway, I resolved to make it through this entire thing without any superhero this year, so here's a sci-fi robot skeleton cyberpunk looking thing, and no, this isn't the undead illegitimate love child of Cable and Cyclops, so it counts. As you can hopefully tell, I'm finding my rhythm a bit better again. Same procedure as every year, I guess.

Inktober 2018, Day 2: Blood for the Blood God!
And we continue Inktober 2018 with another Warhammer-inspired rush job. This one was the plan for yesterday actually, but I had even less time then, so I cranked out that Blood Warrior instead.

Anyway, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for oldschool GW artwork, mostly because of my love for Bolt Thrower, so this makes more sense than maybe you'd think at first glance.

Inktober 2018, Day 1: Bloodbound
Um, yeah. Haven't uploaded anything since last year's Inktober, and we're starting this year's, as usual, with a rush job. More better stuff later in the month when I have more time and get my mojo back like every year, I hope.

Size Does Matter

Sat Jan 19, 2013, 8:10 AM


I think it was about seven years ago when I decided to finally upgrade from my trusty 15" LCD that had cost a fortune and was about twice the size of its actual display to a 20". Dells were already all the rage back then and not all that expensive, so that's what I bought. That damn thing has lasted until today, and the only real hitch I've ever had was the USB hub crapping out - the display still worked like on day one. That's, you know, pretty damn cool.

But the USB hub having died was a bit of a problem for me, and given that a 27" monitor would now cost a little over half of what I paid for the 15" (make unknown, by the way - I still have it, but I can't remember and the company had such faith in their future that they didn't put a logo anywhere on the device), it was getting hard to justify keeping the old warhorse around. So this week I finally splurged on a Dell U2711 27", and I've basically been sitting at my desk with a boner ever since. I guess it's just this thing where if you skip over three generations of technology, buying a new gadget feels like you've travelled to the future.

In all honesty, the new monitor is the reason why I finally got up off my butt and colored that Juri piece I posted today - I really just wanted to see what working on it would be like. Turns out it's exactly what I was hoping for. I think I've literally sliced my coloring time in half because I'm not spending half an eternity zooming in and out anymore. Set to 50%, color most of it, zoom in to 100-150%, take care of details, done.

I just might actually start posting fully colored stuff on a semi-regular basis here again. But I've said that before, so wait and see, huh? ;p

In other news, you should all be reading Storm Dogs. Really. Now. Go and buy it.
