The Bride — Digital Painting! Here’s something I forgot to post up. I finished this digital painting a while back. It took me longer to finish than I was hoping. I have to admit I’m not completely comfortable painting entirely in ArtRage yet. I ended up doing some underdrawing in Photoshop as a guideline and then jumped into painting under the layer in ArtRage. Still, I’m really happy with the way it came out. Next time I’m going try to get out of my comfort zone a little more and start the whole thing in ArtRage. A big thanks to my friend Cate for letting me do the painting and her husband Matt, for taking such a cool pic.
Texas Frightmare Weekend 2013. Had a great time at Texas Frightmare Weekend. I went with my Buddy Ron Scott from the Strange Kids Club. We got lost in Dallas a few times and now I’m sure that Dallas and the Bermuda Triangle are connected, somehow. Good news is we made it to the show, set up, and had a blast. Even had somebody pick up my ‘Nancy’ sketch. Some odd things to note, Danny Trejo walked into a restaurant we were eating at, he’s a lot shorter than I thought he would be. We had a moment where Dee Wallace came over to our table, hung out a bit, and picked up some Strange Kids Club stickers. When the show came to an end, we packed up and got in an elevator with a chatty Tom Skerritt. Despite being really tired by the end of Sunday I had a good time. I even remembered to take some pics!
Antonio Cesaro’s Punch-Out! I’m out of town for the next few days on vacation, however I’m scheduling a few cool posts to go up during the week. I’m going to start with this video I ran across. It’s a match between Antonio Cesaro and Tyson Kidd with Nintendo’s ‘Punch-Out’ sound effects added to it! This is so great! I couldn’t stop laughing at how perfect it was. I’m a big fan of Cesaro and Kidd. Tyson Kidd has been out with an injury recently and WWE hasn’t been doing a lot with him while he wasn’t injured. Cesaro however, continues to move up the ladder. I’m looking forward to where his career goes in the WWE.
Grave Fan Art by Jeff Crowther. Jeff Crowther sent me this amazing Grave fan art the other day! I love Jeff’s work, especially his use of color. He does one of my favorite webcomics called Yeti 4 Hire, such a fun comic! Not only that it has great character designs and is a perfect example of how great his colors are. Make sure to check it out and also check out his website for more cool stuff, over at Oddity Comics.
What’s Going On!? Haven’t posted for a while, been really busy. Busy, busy, busy! I’ve been trying to finish up issue four and send it to the printer so I can get the issues in time for Comicpalooza. Also, turns out I’ll be going to Texas Frightmare weekend after all and I’ve been finishing up a few things so I can at least get some sketch cards ready for that show. All that plus life, has slowed down the NPW posts. I should have the last pages for Issue 4 done soon. Be on the look out for Nightmare Pro Wrestling Issue 4 page 17, next week!
