One of my saddest aliens.

Inktober Day 10 - I drew Green Lantern.
Disclosure, this inkstuds maybe a little self serving, because it promotes the work of Brandon Graham and friends while Brandon has also been my cohost on the Inkstuds Roadtrip.
I’m a big fan of the work that Brandon, Simon Roy, Giannis Milogiannis, Farel Dalrymple and Joseph Bergin III have done on the Prophet comic. It’s a great series pushing some great story telling ideas in a forward looking style. I’m a big fan of what they are doing and happy to talk about it. On top of being a great cohost, Brandon Graham is doing some of the most exciting comics right now, so it’s always good to have a guy like that on the other side of the mic too.
This Inkstuds was sponsored by Stuff Said.
Robin is too nice to me. also this Sandra Lanz drawing at the top is rad huh? (she’s got art in Strikefile #1 and #2)
This was a super-good episode of Inkstuds, which already maintains a pretty high level of quality. It’s one of my go-to podcasts, for drawing background noise.
Other good episodes: Kelly Sue DeConnick, Matt Fraction, the James Stokoe episode where Brandon Graham shows up unannounced halfway through, Brandon Graham, the CITR Fundraiser Episode where you get to hear Brian Fukushima’s Transformer Movie Medley, the recent Lin Visel episode, and my personal favorite, the Corey Lewis episode, where he destroys everyone’s ears with cries of, "SASUKE!
So yeah, if you’re a comics dude who’s comics-chat powered like me, get on it.
Yesterday’s Inktober drawing - Victor, from Darkstalkers.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to order a hard copy version of Neon Noir (there’s a bunch of cool extra stuff in there), or just to talk about shit with him. He’s down for either.
I like how yesterday’s Inktober drawing came out.
Hey, I decided I’m gonna do that Inktober challenge. One inked drawing a day, for 31 days.
Moreover, since I’ve come to rely on digital touch-up a bit too much, I’m going to try to do all my pieces, without any digital effects, other than adjusting the brightness and contrast.
This dude here is Rob Liefeld’s Combat, from Youngblood. I had this idea a while back to do a short fan-comic, called The Savage Sword of Combat, about an aged Combat, called who’s spent his retirement chilling on a beach, following Youngblood’s disbandment.
Maybe I’ll get around to doing it one day.
