My Attempt at a Caricature

Here's a caricature I made of Bill Maher, one of my favorite political satirists and T.V. personalities. I'm trying to brush-up on my realism, so expect to see more of these in the future.

My Contest Admission

I'm excited over recent events that are taking place in my town.

Cormier's, a local craw-fish restraunt in Monroe, is celebrating its 20th year in bussiness by holding a contest for artists at my school. The contest asks for a piece of artwork that's supposed to be themed as "Kiss the Pig" because of their locally famous pork sandwhiches.

The artwork is going to be put on a T-shirt and then given to the winner for free plus a 50$ cash prize and a coupon to their restraunt.

This is my admission for the contest. Let me know if you like it, and cross your fingers so hard that you cut off circulation to your fingers and end up having to get them amputated (no, I'm only kidding, but keep your fingers crossed none-the-less!)

Neville & Co. #33

Here's edition number 33.

Phew! As you've might've guessed, this strip took awhile to make, and I really gave my graphics tablet a good work-out. I also had to post the strip in segments, so I hope you don't mind. I applied some new tools and techniques to the artwork, and happy to say that the results are very good!

It's amazing to me how far I've come in making these cartoons in such a short amount of time. Although there's still ALOT for me to learn and I'm still very humbled by all you talented bozos out there, I think I'm getting closer to the goals that I want to achieve.

So let me know if you like it, and stay "tooned" (ha-ha, me make-a pun :) ) for more strips and artwork to come.

Have a Goodin'!

The Little Glass Horsie

This week I had to right a turn paper that explored the themes of Tennessee William's dynamic play "The Glass Managerie" for English. I decided to draw the glass unicorn from the play on my computer and paste it on to my essay.

Tee-hee, I'm such'a kiss-ass! :D

Well anyway, I'm working on a great idea for a new strip that I should be able to bring to you guys by the end of the week. I'm not leaking any details, but just to give you a jist about it, think Ranj and Dragon Ball Z.

Solaris the Destroyer

I had came up with a really cool idea for a super villian that was bugging me all day until I finally decided to draw it on my computer.
His name is Stanely Tussman. He was once a world renowned thief until he managed to pull his biggest hiest of all by raiding the military fortress of Area 51. It wasn't money or precious gems that he stole, but a powerful piece of alien technology that he reengineered into a powerglove. This glove, adjusted to the right setting, had the ability to progress matter into it's volatile fourth state (plasma) at which he could then bend to his will. With his new found power he became the dreaded super villian Solaris, and continues to be the bane of all human existan till this very day.
Let me know if you like it. I finally figured out how to post stuff in PNG. Looks alot better don'tcha think?

The idea for this drawing came from this video:

WHEW! Here's Edition number 32

After several trys, I managed to make a new strip using my new Wacom graphics tablet. The application is a major improvement from Gimpshop in my opinion, and shall probably improve my abilities even further.

However, I'm still limited to posting cartoons in BMP format (trust me, I've tryed posting in PNG and it wouldn't let me) so if any you guys know the secret on how to break free from this, please don't hesitate to lay it on me.

And on a side note, I'm thinking of joining the blog Sugar Frosted Goodness. I'm not sure they'd accept my work, but I'd hope they will none the less.

So anyway, thanks for sticking through this week and having to stand the hideous abominations that I put on my blog, and stay tuned for even more strips to come.

Have A Goodin'!

Neville and Company

I finally got my graphics tablet today and decided to play around with it, and I have to admit that I'm impressed with the results.
However, the application is alittle trickier that I expected, so I may not stay true to my word by making a new strip by the weeks end. But hold steadfast my friends, I working hard to make it work.

More Notebook Sketchings

Here's another piece of art that I made in class today. I've discovered that the badder a monster's skin condition is, the more frightening his appearance.
I know that this isn't a new strip, but today I'm going to download the cool drawing software that I talked about and tommorrow my Wacom Graphics Tablet arrives. Hopefully I be able to make at least two new strips by the week's end, and hopefully my new equipment will make something that'l really nock your socks off.
But for now, just enjoy the drawing, and if you ever see him in real life then I hope you have the ability to run like hell.

Gross Man

Here's a little somethin' that I drew in Chemistry Class. I went around my school today showing him to people and amused myself by watching their disgusted expressions.
And now I'd like to share him with you, hope he brightens your day!

I decided to make fun of myself alittle bit in this one, so enjoy! :)

Neville & Co. #30

Whew, here's edition number 30.
Again, I apologize for taking so long to make a new strip. My week hasn't exactly allowed me much computer time. Plus, I'm beginning to cope with the fact that the harder I work to make something look good with limited materials, the longer it takes to make.
But hopefully that's going to change soon. My birthday is next week, and I've asked for some money that'll buy me some cool software and a graphics tablet. That way I'll be able to make somthing great without it taking an anagonizingly long time.
But until then, I'm not going to able to make strips as frequently as I used to like I did by making black and white ones. But fear not! I'm not going to give up, and I shall continue to put forth material as long as I have the means to do so!
