More from the Witcher, Ciri of Cintra

This is a continuation of my post last week about the Witcher Netflix show and game series. In that first post, I discussed the show in detail and shared some artwork featuring Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher himself. I mentioned that, unlike with Stranger Things, I actually caught this show during its peak popularity. Something I didn’t touch on though

The Witcher Art, Geralt of Rivia

Somewhere towards the beginning of the new COVID-19 home quarantine reality, I finally forced myself to sit down and watch The Witcher Netflix series. I’d heard a lot of positive things about it, and enjoyed playing The Witcher 3 video game, so this seemed like a sure-fire thing. It actually seemed like it could evolve into a similar situation to

Dark Tower Villain Improvements

I haven’t discussed the series in a while, but if you came across this blog any time in early 2018, you were probably greeted with a barrage of posts about the Dark Tower. Even outside of this specific series, I’m a huge Stephen King fan, but the Dark Tower books are probably my favorite in the fantasy genre. As I’ve

By Request, Frozen’s Anna and Elsa

Like so many parents, we’re doing our best to keep the little ones busy as well as ourselves. In an effort to keep myself busy, I recently wrote, illustrated, and published a children’s book called Robot Family Adventures. It’s actually free on Kindle right now, so if your kids want a short story to read, this one features robots and

Late to the Stranger Things Party

I’ve really been slacking on my usual pattern of art and website posts. In the last two or three months, I’ve only written a couple of things, which is definitely outside of the norm. Holiday travel is my usual excuse this time of year, but I’ve also had some other things consume my leisure time. One, which isn’t the topic

Drawing Models and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

One of my favorite things about browsing the Internet is how easy it is to randomly discover something new. That could involve stumbling upon an informative subreddit, finding a great thread of funny images, or even learning about something cool you’d want to buy. Even better, but a bit more rare, is when finding one cool thing leads you down

Improving with the Tablet and Sketchbook App

In the previous post, I discussed my purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and decision to try digital artwork again. My first experience with a tablet designed strictly for drawing in conjunction with a computer screen (XP-Pen Deco 01) did not go smoothly, and I pretty quickly abandoned the experiment. This time though, I felt much more comfortable using

A Dark Tower Redo, One Year Comparison

At the start of 2018, I finished what has become one of my favorite fiction novel series; The Dark Tower by Stephen King. If you’re not familiar, the story follows Roland the Gunslinger on his quest to fix a ruined world. He gains some great companions along the way, and has to make difficult choices that will affect his world

Ernie Hudson and The Crow

Last fall, I did a sketch of three of the four Ghostbusters. I included Peter Venkman, Ray Stanz, and Egon Spangler…but unfortunately I ran out of room. Due to my poor planning, I couldn’t find a place for Winston Zeddemore. This has bothered me since I shared the sketch; first, actor Ernie Hudson is awesome and I was disappointed that

More Parks and Recreation Art – Leslie Knope

Over the last week or so, I’ve been dealing with a fairly tough cold. As is usually the case, the kids and I all got sick, while my wife’s superhero immune system spared her. This one really kicked my butt, and I had a few days when even sitting upright sort of wore me out. It was pretty pathetic. Anyway,

Ron Swanson, The Simpsons, and New Parents

My most recent drawing is sort of a random one. I guess most of them are, but this was a very spur-of-the-moment thing. I was watching TV and saw a commercial or something featuring Nick Offerman. It may have been something about a syndicated rerun of Parks and Recreation. Whatever it was, it got me thinking about how funny that

The Greatness of Mystery Science Theater 3000

One of my favorite shows as a kid was Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). If you’re not familiar with it, MST3K was basically a show about people making fun of terrible movies. There was a rudimentary plot about a janitor (Joel Hodgson and later Mike Nelson) being banished to a space station, then forced by a made scientist to watch

The Fifth Element – Gary Oldman’s Zorg

Welcome to part two of this run of drawings from The Fifth Element. In the first one, I covered some basics from the film and shared a drawing of Leeloo Dallas and her treasured Multipass. In this second drawing, we’re going to talk about the main antagonist of the movie (aside from the evil planet), Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg. One fascinating aspect
