You've got some talent Bettie. Great stuff. Were you planning on doing a comic or something with the character?

For Guana...I was thinking more of a Hugh grant or the Gandolf dude outta lord of the rings.

First off, calm down...Walken is a very shmexy man! But really, lately I've been dabbling in combining watercolor, black and white, markers and colored pencils. The uncolored ones are just sketches but the others, for the most part, are done but needing some tweaks. I don't like using up colored pencils for large spaces so I just do watercolor washes and sometimes add some marker details. But honestly...i really have no fucking clue how I really do it. I just randomly color in areas with various tools wherever i feel like. Me thinks it's more an unconscious thing and we all know I'm lazy.

With Syneca yeah...I've been fiddling around with her for years and I still don't know what to do with her. My brother is the comic genius when it comes to that. Her designed is loosely based on Fiona Apple. The other ones are of Psylocke and Lisbeth Salander...at least my take on her anyway. The others are just random covers of Darkchylde comics, since I've been a huge fan since the 90s and i LOVE Randy Queen's style. That Korn one I did, and re-did numerous times, was back in middle school...it's not mine though, it's the cover of their Issues CD. Like I said, most of what I've been doing are just comic characters that I like.

Always wanted to use watercolours but never really had the confidence, if I ever used colours I always used blendable pencils, They're more limited but quite easy to use, these two were just fine black pens and coloured pencils

Those are fucking amazing man! My favorite is the last one, I'm gonna put it in my sketchbook since I collect others' works for inspiration. You're good with ink sir! Ink was something I had to get use to. I stopped using all those art pens and just go with regular writing pens, I get better effects with shading. Only those meticulous assholes like doing backgrounds. To me it takes up unnecessary time and energy that could be put into the main focus of the picture. I spend enough time on the character itself to go back and add backgrounds, probably why i don't do comics. I don't have the attention span for it. My art teachers always got on my ass for never doing backgrounds, even when I was supposed to...then they got over it since I was the favorite. Watercolor IS tricky but what I do is a very VERY light wash of big spaces...you'll use up a lot of paper towels but it looks good afterwards. The annoying part is CAREFULLY mopping up the dark colors. My other problem is I'm heavy handed, like my brother, so when i sketch, it's never light it's always dark lines...i can't do it otherwise.  But try it Guana, it's not hard when you know what shades you want.

there are TWO things i will NEVER touch again: pastels and OIL paints..NEVER again will I touch that shit. It's just damn impossible and just messy.

Cheers Bettie, you can put whatever you want in your sketchbook for me, glad you like it.
I haven't used watercolours since I was at school and I didn't enjoy art much at school, my eldest used them for a while then went on to oils so I might see if she'll part with her paints, the main thing that puts me off is buying all the gear I need then not enjoying it, I thought about joining a local night class and using their stuff but I work a fucked up 10 day shift scheme and would miss most weeks so didn't bother.
I love pastels though, used to have a nice set of oil pastels, great for blending but really messy, me and my matr used to drop acid, sit and draw random people that turned up at my flat then swap pictures and colour them in with pastels, got some really good results but our clothes and the carpet would end up knackered.

Re: Punks with Pens!

All the best pieces of art, written and otherwise, was created under the influence of something lol, and i'm guilty of that. I don't get those expensive ass tubes of watercolor paints, I just get the regular watercolor palette for like 5 bucks. It does the same damn thing really for what I need it for. Kudos for your kid using oils though, i HATE that shit. I started something with it and was over it in about 10 minutes. that shit is evil... Typically here, those watercolor palettes are cheap. You can make anything work if you know what the fuck you're doing.

"Hey evil, why don't you eat my butt?"

Re: Punks with Pens!

of work with oil paints when I was at art school but yeah, they were a pain in the ass and I never enjoyed them.
Used chalk pastels for all my dog portraits because they blended easy and you could cover large areas ....plus they were fairly cheap.....but messy as hell. I got banned from using them in the house and had to draw in the backyard.

Never really been big on watercolours. I messed around with the watercolour pencils for a bit but then lost interes. WWith the pencils you could at least draw your image and then work over it with a wet brush.
Always found watercolours a bit subtle for my taste. I'm more a bright in your face, put on your sunglasses style.

Re: Punks with Pens!

Kimo, you are RIDICULOUSLY ILLEGALLY talented. You could probably make and sell stuff maybe on Etsy or something and make a damn good penny. I know I'd buy most of your stuff.

"Hey evil, why don't you eat my butt?"

Re: Punks with Pens!

Thanks Ick and Bettie. I was really happy with the end result on the Dropkicks vest..that's why I wanted to keep it.
I did make this for a mates 50th birthday but it is a paid job as about 10 mates all threw in $40 each for me to make it for him
It cost me $70 for the vest and about $10 in scrap leather so it's about a $320 profit for me which is cool, although there is about 40 hours work all up involved. It's not great money but I just do it in my spare time while watching tv so I can't complain.

Myself ,Guana and Dowot actually had a conversation about this sort of thing on the old pos site, about how we were always doing stuff for free for mates because we felt like pricks charging mates for stuff.
I've actually done a few commissioned jobs for jackets recently and charged my mates for it because there's just too much work involved, but I don't think I'd ever be inclined to sell stuff on Etsy or online as such.

I'm glad that you're getting a few quid out of it now kimo, when you break it down to an hourly rate your mates are still getting a bargain.
I considered grabbing a few 2nd hand leathers, painting them up and sticking them on ebay, seen them go for about £600, and they weren't that special either.
Am too lazy though.

Nice work on those anyway, as tidy and professional as ever.

Go on with it, the Wednesday 13 job is better than a company sanctioned work if not 10 times better, and the Dropkick vest is just absolutely astronomical.

2 times now Ive said I want to commission something for my wife, who shares your affinity for Wednesday 13. I would be honored to have you make a Wednesday 13, or TOOL ...shirt or jacket, or maybe purse? She may appreciate TOOL more, but every time I see you post a Wednesday 13 item, it makes me think of her lol.
