Not sure what I’ll do with these yet, if I decide to at all, but I LOVE them. It started out as just a practice doodle of Dee Reynolds, but I colored it up and really liked how it looked.

I wanted to do an It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia mini portrait thing so I could make little circle designs for pins or stickers or postcards… so I’m not sure if it will be with this type of design or something else. But feedback on the matter is cool.

Anyway, drawing Dee is really fun–I just think she’s such a pretty subject. I kind of started making her look like Princess Peach here, then stopped because I don’t really know how that ties into anything.

“Lunar Lashing” by Brooke Hernando/Dixxie Mae Graphics, 2016.

I fell into the trend of pastel punk and old school anime. oh well. Nothing wrong if it promotes feminism and badassery. I like this style a lot though. Finally felt like I mastered light strokes with a 30pt pencil (without it looking consistently thick). Just gotta use a light hand. And do any kind of selection outlining with 6pt.

Anyways, don’t steal, don’t use without permission.

“Total Eclipse (Venus)” by Brooke Hernando/Dixxie Mae Graphics, 2016.

This was based off of a solid shape, silhouette, neon idea (from when I had done the Hotline Miami/Sailor Moon crossover). The idea behind the text was from the old, original Toonami bumpers, when Moltar would introduce the show. In one bumper he used the phrase [song title] “total eclipse of the heart” for the Sailor Moon intro, so it had put this image in my head.

I wanted to test out two styles or coloring ideas, and figured why not draw Deadpool? Since I’m so excited for the movie finally being a reality. So here is the full thing (and yeah, I threw in the pipe like in the pre-trailer trailer because I wasn’t sure what else to have him do).

So here are the two ideas I tried capturing in the coloring technique: taking some of the solid black shadows (and some lines) and making them a darker red/darker color than the flat color… just to make it “blend” a bit more while still being a solid shape; the other idea being to use the add glow layer for highlights more. It’s so common in comic coloring, and yet I hardly think to utilize it, so here I finally tried it out.

I want to post a small guideline for coloring this soon, because I am quite happy with how this turned out.

(Deadpool belongs to Marvel and not me, of course.)

Felt like doodling up some Ghostbusters design since we watched the films last night and dressed up in uniform for Halloween. Will try and make the rest, but these were just fun pieces to make really quick as a “break” from my commissions.

I may make an alternate one of Egon that just says “YOUR MOTHER” because that small bit is a favorite.
