Sticky Note Art is still Art!


Well who would have known that being stressed out would lead to being productive.  After being stressed out for most of the morning I sat down and inked an entire page and made some major head way in the Captain America Paper Toy.




Cap’s looking pretty sweet so far considering he has no lower half and his stand is comprised of an Ugly Doll vinyl figure. Haha!

Maybe at some point I’ll throw up a few scans of the inks I’ve done for practice.

Just wanted to update you alls on whats been going on lately.

Since my last post I have dived back into the fun world of paper toys.  So far I’ve hit up all my old stomping grounds on the web and re-acquainted myself with whats been going on in the papertoyverse.

That’s when it hit me!  From that point I decided to challenge myself and take on a paper toy model that wasn’t your basic geometric shapes.  Instead I chose a paper toy that was created from a 3D model using Pepakura Designer.

Behold the 39cm Captain America papercraft!

So far it’s gone surprisingly well.  I’ve had to tweak my methods, but I have picked up a lot more expert techniques on how to handle bigger and more complex paper crafts.  I’m thinking I might take a few progress pictures and then post them all in a final post with a picture of the completed Captain America.

Wish me luck!

So lately I’ve been fooling around and getting use to my Bamboo Tablet I’ve had for some time now.  I’d have to say that I’m slowly starting to get the hang of it, but I won’t be illustrating with it any time soon.

Thinking about it, it’s like I have opened the door to this totally new world inside Photoshop.  Layers seem fresh and new when drawing characters and just being able to scribble with an actual pen vs the mouse is absolutely fun.

A great stress reliever when you want to doodle quick and dirty.

Well that’s all for now.  I leave you with a quick sketch I did with a photo reference of Mega Man.

#6 Robots Are Coming

Robots Are Coming! hits the #6 slot with this eye catching poster.  The original idea just focused around the words robot with three robot heads in a row in the middle, but once I started working on it the ideas started flowing.  I wanted to capture something of a vintage feel of a 1950’s monster poster in a way, but with more of a modern overhaul of it.  So I used some three dimensional type for the top title, some old vintage textures for the poster itself, and sprinkled in some vector security cameras from a Go Media Zine pack.  So beware of the coming Robots!

#4 Dino Tribal Girl

Daily Design #4 started with the middle Tribal guy who came from a sketch while watching TV.  After tracing his face into Illustrator I experimented with the Gaussian blur effect and created up his body and then followed the same steps for the Dino and Girl.

#3 Super M

Super M Bubble

Daily Design #3 in which I played around with negative space and came out with this.  Kinda reminds me of those color blindness tests.

Any who, from here on out I’m going to title the posts with the number or the daily deviation numbers that are being posted, that way for future reference it’s easier to track down.

Here’s the first installment of the Daily Design.  So far there’s two to show since I’m trying to get back on track with the days since starting this late.

#1  Happy New Year

Magical New Years Mouse

Who doesn’t love the Magical New Years mouse?  This was created to be a wallpaper with the dimensions of 1600 x 1200.  Currently it’s sitting on my desktop but if others are interested I can post a link for download.

#2  Cramped Typography

Any Space In There?

My second installment I decided to have a little fun with varying type faces and spacing.  Since I wanted to cram in as many as I could I felt Cramped was an appropriate word to use for the situation.  A 10 x 10 inch square with who knows how many type faces are on there, feel free to count and let me know if you’d like.

That’s all for now, but keep a look out tomorrow for two more installments until I get back onto this Daily Design routine.

Take it easy

A warm up illustration.  Just trying out a few new techniques and basically playing around.

More to Come!
