Last of the Advent pics

I've been doing my usual for xmas, sat doodling randomness (new stuff adding to my list of bits to finnish..sigh) and lazying about reading comics of course so I kinda could not be to bothered with the messing about with my computer yesterday, thus Im posting these now. Also I don't have a greatly decent working scanner (the one I have is bloody useless) so I have tried to get some okay photos for now hope these pic are liked by all. I wont be doing anymore painty stuff like these ....well, it depends on my creative flow or whatever but I have more than enough other stuff to get on with so its enough of the acrylic paint pics for now I think, gonna get on with all unfinished an half started mini projects, Merry yesterday and Happy next week to all you creative goons.

Strange advent calendar, day 5-10

With putting myself a bit behind last week with this advent idea, I kinda just got into doing them each at a day and half pace (that half being when most people are sleeping). My plan was to put them up on a day by day basis but once I had caught up with myself slightly I thought I may as well batch them all together....did anyone else do that as a kid try to wait a week or two so you could eat half an entire advent calendar in one morning....was that just me...sigh.
So here are all of the past weeks and I seem to just get into an idea forget about posting anything and wake up a day later in a mess of paint on my the others from this week will be up as soon as I remember to post them instead of going onto some other work.

Strange advent calendar , day 3/4

Ok I got a bit behind due to being unable to ignore some life stuff and just plain making more work for myself, cant ignore an idea you know, plus trying to finnish some other work (of which i do hope to get up soon....ish). This was started and going good on saturday then some stuff happened, (stuff involving me being really tired and fainting...seriously...I have also fainted on the treadmill before....yes painful) so it took a bit longer then planned. That plus it being a double page of stupid detail acrylic means it counts as two days.....CAUSE I SAY IT DOES don't argue with me Im too tired.
But anyway unlike me this Clown Monkey Jellyfish thing gets its protein and likes eating fish, I kinda hate myself for the hassle of the captions as fun as they seem, far too much for a simple monster pic.

Strange advent calendar , day 2

Alien bee stingy allergy :P
My scanner has really had it, I didn't think I was gonna get this up, but for now I've just resorted to a photo. Will update it with a better scan at some point.

Strange advent calendar , day 1

I was thinking one of the best things about Xmas when I was my chubby little self was Advent Calendars, basically an excuse to have chocolate for breakfast.

But I’m all grown up now, so I thought as a way to get back at some real paint practice (I rely on this blasted machine far too much) I would do my own kind of Monster advent calendar thing (I’m sooo grown up: P). The gist is pretty simple I get to doodle and paint a strange looking thingy every day till the months up...more a personal test and eventual reward then the simple eating of chocolate but its still a good plan.

So new monster post every day and let me know what you think as I am really out of practice with my acrylic work, I am still multi tasking with other stuff also, so if i get these up late it should not be more than a day out if at all.

My doodle of Nikki Stu's Herald Owlett

I actually get out and go places more now it seems. Having gone to see Bjork earlier this year which of course was a glimpse at heaven (don't stare at me like that i feel your judging eyes, she is beautiful I don't care how old) and realising I should finally get to a con/festival or two, I got myself to Thought Bubble in Leeds this past weekend in order to see a bunch of arty seminars on self publishing and maybe meet some arty peoples whom Id thought may be as secluded and strange as me. (Im still a stranger even in that crowd)

But anyway to the topic of the above art (this is the part you skip too if the art is all your bothered about) Herald Owlett is but one of the orgy of magic I had stuffed into my eye sockets over the weekend and yes I could make a big deal over Tim Sale or Richard Starkings maybe have a go at one or two of their character work but everyone does that. So being someone who finds character design as my most favoured and interesting area of story and art craft, i found myself loving this character and Nikki Stu's design of him with her style. Although I did this I do of course believe that her style is one of the aspects that makes his character stand out so well.check out Herald and all of Nikki's work at her blog here Nikki-stu.blogspot

Over the past month or so I've not been entirely satisfied with much of anything and so I've been slowly making progress with ideas on a few projects, one being a [Children's] comic I have been wanting to do, of which I have mostly character plans so far. Im also just generally practicing with some things to get me back into it full flow, id consider this a somewhat decent sign that Im getting there. As alway's I have a couple sketch pads with lots of unfinished ideas in them, but Im just wanting to work on main ideas for full projects, 4 or so currently in mind the comic being one.

But anyway I have been wanting to do some film art pics for a long while and thought it would make for good practice plus its sorta one of those few projects Im thinking of. Hopefully if I don't get distracted by some more ideas and whatever else then I will get some more work up soon.
Hope this is liked, Im thinking to maybe do a Goonies meets .....nah you can wait for that ;)

Ghost Rider doodling

Being in a bit of a creative limbo of confidence in my skills and head vs wall games I found myself doodling some wee bits of mainstream characters and so got to doing this Digital painted pic of Ghost Rider on Photoshop. I don't tend to draw other peoples well known Mainstream stuff much (not as much as when I was a little Hellboy T-shirt wearing fanboy of yesteryear anyway) always prefer my own attempts at originality but I may do some more returning to the odd mainstream, as it is good fun and good for a challenging bit of practice at least.

Día de los Muertos inspired

I got thinking about how the living pay tribute to the dead on the day of the day of the dead but what might the dead do.

So here is a few spirits and demon-kind paying tribute to their goddess unfortunately the little one up front of the line has miss understood the idea of paying tribute....

Sorry little fella sacrifice is not really necessary....poor guy, no pleasing some women.

Depictions of oni vary widely but usually portray them as hideous, gigantic creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads.They are humanoid for the most part, but occasionally, they are shown with unnatural features such as odd numbers of eyes or extra fingers and toes. Their skin may be any number of colors, but red and blue are particularly common. this is my own version of one i got sketching when really into masks.

Zombie Luchador

This was an old zombie sketch i had in an old pad, it was not perfect so i left it half done and didn't bother with till recently when on the group Illustration bandits asked people to do some Mexican Wrestlers. So i thought i could finally return to re- do this and salvage the good bits with the added Luchador theme.

The Misery is a creature that usually hides in the reflections of eyes. Im putting a book of demonic or spiritual creatures together, in essence my own brand of self made myths. this will be a small fall out book in my comic and provide information on some creatures to perhaps be later involved in one of my story's.. sort of a mini Demon Diary thing. If interested though im fine to give more information on these beings now. but seen as im putting it into a little book i see no reason to have it all up on here.

The Luminus Entity is a creature considered to be a spirit of light energy, it is a very docile being in comparison to most energy related demons, it is very rarely visible as in the conscious world light is electromagnetic radiation whose wavelength falls within the range to which the human retina responds.The creature is misunderstood to be leaching off of light when in fact it is made of light energy and gives it and colour to all around it. It has a very keen interest in vibrant emotions and therefore individuals whose personality is considered colourful.These being are often found (when ever so slightly visible) wondering Art gallery's as they attempt to imitate a human form. they are more comfortable in a form relative to that of a Deer or at times other four legged animals. Hunters have been found to give off topic comments about thinking to have seen a Deer made of colours out of the corner of the eye and many road accidents are caused by the interest these creatures suddenly show in car headlights.

As a form of Damnation these beings are used to torture those who value sight and colour over most aspects of life.It might be a case of reliving certain situations on rotation with a Luminus Entity draining colour or sight from the individuals lust for that part of life.
Also the Luminus is used as a rebirth form that is quite blissful after serving a number of centuries in a more painful damnation.

Guilt Demon

Often Nicknamed "Guilt Guardians" or "the Wondering Judgements" these demonic often male swordsman trek through the astral plane touching every realm linked with the sub-conscious mind and thus becoming a cause for guilt in individuals or feeding upon those vulnerable to feeling great guilt. These creatures are held responsible for suicide's caused from self judgment or actions taken by another's greed to cause guilt in others for unjust reasons. As a form of Damnation those who are great sufferer's of guilt or exploit their position in its usage will be either damned to a sentence of so many centuries as a follower of a Guilt Demon or most usual for men they may be reborn as a Guilt Demon and be shamed with the eternal feeling of their entire life's guilt caused by them to others as well as their own judgment. The Creatures are usually distant memory's for any creature in conscious worlds they are always with a blade of some form for reasons unknown and have a very large cloud of guilty souls damned to follow them like fly's on a corpse.

Villains and just crazy extra's

Baddy's or freaks that tend to always have a beef with Cryptic, he's not much of a lucky bunny, and the bottom guy is a Vet/ demon scientist who actually features in both stories as he being a demon is a sort of crazy friend/occasional enemy to Sly in the second featured tale of the comic.

AARGH, Im getting so sidetracked with lots of random doodling and very little finished stuff (finished as in coloured anyway), these have been on my desktop for a bit now with only slight finishing touches needed, bloody annoying.
Anyway these guys are the sidekick-esk characters to the main guys, i don't wanna explain to much till the comic but.....well as you can see, a Were-Hamster who beasts out into a man form ("were" means "man" of course) and a Demon critter who is pretty much a pet and torment of the previously mentioned Artist character.

Extra TJ bits

These were some possible poses and colours i was playing with, the bottom being a slightly closer hug to the TV and a version without the stripes, the next up just colour variations and the top is just some added background textures that i was playing with.
