lock shock and barrel


Linework of Lock, Shock and Barrel is finished!  There are a few little things I may have liked to have added/tweaked, but it’s too late now and on the whole I’m pretty pleased with this.  It certainly was fun, and that’s the important part!
See the colored version HERE!
This was done with Copic multiliners, sizes 0.3, 0.1, 0.05 and 0.03 on 11 x 14 inch smooth Bristol board.  A few minor mistakes were removed with Photoshop.


Since Midterm week is finally over and I can relax I decided to share with you all my inktober illustrations. sadly with abroad I don’t have time to do a day by day but I try. hope you enjoy them! and 100 stars if you get the acnl jokes :)


Three friends dressed up as Lock, Shock, and Barrel from The Nightmare Before Christmas to get their picture taken with Santa Claus at their local mall.

For the uninitiated, the mischieveous characters kidnap Santa in the classic Disney film. You can listen to their song, “Kidnap the Sandy Claws,” below.

So The Nightmare Before Christmas was chosen as monthly art theme (yes, I know I’m very late with this theme) and I am still working on bigger things but I decided to give a whirl with drawing my favourite trick or treaters, in their teenage form that I used to draw, SO MUCH back in the day. Those who don’t know, before I started doing Pokemon, ssb and splatoon stuff, I was a HUGE TNBC fan and majority of my fan art was related to it. I’m talking way back in 2007.

Anyway, now that I actually know how to do something else than handsome anime/manga style, it was fun to redraw these guys and be a bit more faithful to their original Tim Burton designs but still keep my own twist in them.

Lock is still my fave asshole.
