More album covers

More fake album covers, done by combining a random Wikipedia article for the band name, the last four words of a random quote for the title, and a random Flikr image for the art. Here are the last ones I did, and here are some more.

Pseudofeces is a late '90s hard rock band.

Al Watan is actually Al-Watan, a newspaper in Saudi Arabia. But I dropped the hyphen and made it some dude's name. I think he does smooth jazz.

Wasting time

There's a fun game on Penciljack where you come up with a CD cover, band name, and album title. You just go to a random page on Wikipedia to get your band name, the last four words of the last quote on a page of random quotations, and the third picture on a page of random Flickr images. But recently someone had the bright idea to actually go into Photoshop and design the CD covers. Here are my attempts.

Tuzki is a European instrumental folk group.

John Marshall High School is a late 90's alt-pop band. I also used another quote on the same page for a song title.

I cheated a bit here because the Wikipedia page was for Ohs, a cereal, but I made them The Oh!s, who I've decided are a 2000s garage rock band.

Phalcoboenus is a folky alt-rock band.

Smarty is a Scottish girl who does pop music.

Leaf Blower is a Damon Albarn side project.

Kvíslavatn is an Icelandic pop group that sings in English and clearly loves Wes Anderson movies.

Cheated a bit, but "Plays - Cynical But Hopeful" didn't sound as good. Jonathan Webster Cornett is a one-hit wonder from the 80s.

COCONUT98 is a 90s pop-punk band.

I could go the obvious route and say Plaxton is an emo band, but I'm going to say they're a house electronica band.
And here's the last one, because I really don't think I could do one funnier than this:

EDIT: I've done some more.

Character Sketches - March 19

So these Daily Character Sketches aren't exactly daily anymore. I underestimated the amount of time it would take to do a sketch like this every day. So I'm going to try for two or three sketches a week now, and do Loomis sketches the rest of the week.

In honor of this week's final episode of what is, in my opinion, the best science fiction show of all time, I've drawn Kara "Starbuck" Thrace of Battlestar Galactica.

Titus Colored

Color version of the Bruce Timm-style Titus sketch I did.

Bruce Timm-style Titus

This is Titus, the main character of the comic I'm doing right now. I decided to do this in a Bruce Timm/animated DCU style. After finishing it I realized it's not really that different from my normal style.

Let's Go to Utah

This is a pin-up for the trade paperback of Dave Chisholm's "Let's Go To Utah" comic. If you've never read it, I suggest going to his DA page and reading through the story, it's pretty great. I've seen someone describe it as a Coen Brothers movie in comic format and that's pretty apt.
