Hulk faces

After doing this Hulk pin-up, I got quite a few comments saying it didn't quite look like the Hulk. I'm not that familiar with the character, so I guess I gave him too human of a face. I'm going to redo the face on my initial pin-up at some point, but here's some practice sketches I did today of the Hulk to try to get his facial structure down:

Strip Jam: Me and the Major

My eighteenth panel (and 119th panel overall) for the Neverending Strip Jam at Penciljack.

25 Million Years after our story begins, Master Yoda and R2D2 have found the Ministry's suitcase, and opened it to find the souls of Sam, Sammy, Joker-Snake, The Major, and Yoshi. Just then the rotting, soulless body of the Major showed up, grabbed his own soul, and popped it in his mouth.

And before anyone asks, "Me and the Major" is a Belle & Sebastian song.
Texting this from my phone. Just want to make sure it works.

Character Sketches - April 21

Karl Savage asked where the Sayid drawing I did was, so here it is, along with a Wolverine sketch. Both of these are from months ago, but I never scanned them in for whatever reason.

And here's today's sketch. Over the past few weeks I've been making my way through Carl Sagan's "Cosmos" series on Hulu, which is a science program from the early 80s made to introduce and explain complicated science ideas to laypeople in a way they can understand. I'm a big fan of Sagan, going back to the first time I saw the movie "Contact" in high school, and then went back and read his novel it was based on. I loved the movie but the book is a hundred times better. I then started reading his other books like "Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" and "Billions and Billions," the former of which started me on my journey into skepticism. I consider Carl Sagan a personal hero of mine, and it's a shame he's no longer with us.

More of these album covers

More of these and these. Done by taking a random article on Wikipedia for the band name, a random quote for the album title, and a random Flikr image for the album artwork. The original photographer is credited where I remembered to save the link.

I tried to do some aging on this one. If you look at the original photo, it's in color and looks new, but I looked up some tutorials on aging photos.

If I ever start a rock band, I'm going to call them The Virtuality Continuum.

Tried my best at doing a logo. Turtle Soup is Florida ska.

I tried doing a hip-hop album. Cheated because it was "Nebuchadnezzar II" but I dropped the "II" and the "r."
