The Female Gunman

THE YOUNG WOMAN was taken in by her UNCLE after the death of her father and mother to "HIS" hands. She's grown up after surviving her battle wounds, as she too barely made it out alive. She now wields weapons of her and her uncle's designs. Not only is she battling against "Him," but she's battling for the freedom of her brainwashed TWIN BROTHER, who "He" controls.

Recommended process: Design the thumb-nails of all of them and flesh out the best of characters/environment. Establish time periods, target audience, and final platform, or medium (design with the end in mind).


1. The Young Woman: Must be "Young" in appearance (I'm cool with Vampire or elf like age); It's up to you if she knows if her twin brother is alive or not (does she know she's fighting her brother?) Remember battle scars. Has she lost anything besides her parents? (Is one of her arms mechanical? Perhaps an eye patch? Or just visible scarring? )

2. The Uncle: Must be older than young woman (Maybe close to the same age? How would that change the dynamics?) An inventor, or designer of sorts. Does he have a strange process for designing? Sketches all over (clichéd) or through 3-d? (Maybe cheesy After Effects videos). Does he too have battle wounds? Doesn't have to be a true uncle ("Just call me uncle Jeff").

The female Gunman (cont.)

3. "Him": Mysterious evil dude. Try combining him with some animal that might be considered evil. (Rat, hyena, cat, clichéd snake, an evil chicken, a hell-moose, a fish, ect. Whatever, just have the finish evil). Why is he mysterious? Give him a tinge of crazy (Does he dress like a woman? Why? Those are lady's clothes. Is cotton really that uncomfortable?) or a flawed philosophical belief (“He” some how believes it’s okay to kill people, or at least steal and brainwash infants) Something must be wrong with him.

4. The Twin Brother: Should be the same age as the Young Woman (unless you can convince otherwise; time traveling brother who lost his memory and found by “Him”?) Was he harmed during the incident also? Does the Young Woman know the relationship? Are they fraternal or identical twins? Why doesn’t he want to fight on the side of his sister? (Is he completely under the control of “Him” or does he strongly believe in “He” to be the real hero? Or Does he not know they’re related, why? Scars or does the young woman’s costume not reveal her face?)

DON’T create the parents, they’re flat characters. (Unless you really want to show there deaths. You sick m#@%&#$ F$)$er.)

For the environment folks: Uncle’s lab, “His” lab, The young girl’s or twin brother’s training ground, The destroyed family home (probably easier to design the undestroyed home and then destroy it). Sorry, I’m a character guy, environments are a bit strange to me. Argg! I’m too wordy!

I really wanna color him, but here he is, ladies!

After being captured by his nemesis Brett Buffbrain, Professor Diabolical had no choice! To avoid a lengthy prison term, he programed robots to graft his brain onto a Tyrannosaurus Rex (leftover from a previous adventure). Unfortunately, the Professor's brain could not operate the motor and lower brain functions of his new partner, so they now share a glass brain case, while the now even more fearsome super villain controls higher thought, improvised human speech and facial expression.

Monkey Business!

I think Monkey's would use remote transmitters to control Gorillas
to help them take over the world, we are making them too smart!
I found Adam's Topic to be very intriguing. sorry it took so long, lol.

Week 31 Parasites...


So Im just gonna throw this one out there. mysterious power of the jewel wasp, also known as the emerald cockroach wasp. Wasp that injects venom into cockroach brains and drives them around by there antennae, so maybe concept a parasite that controls a host, or something like that guy who walked around with that little dude on hes shoulders in mad max.

Compliments.......of Mr Adam Russ

Wrath,Gluttony, and Lust

Well Tom, I waited a whole 24 hours....No one else wanted to post apparently, so....

I'll take it from here, let's do some more character designing! Or anything you wish based on the topic like Mech, Creature, Vehicle, or even Environment. This topic should give you all a little more options to work with, like seven to be exact!.... 
The Seven Deadly Sins!
Pick one of the seven deadly sins and create a concept related to it!

What the deadline on posts? Is it midnight monday or midnight sunday? Anyways, here's my anthropo- what ever. Here's my concept of an inanimate object getting the human treatment. A lamp reading a nail biting thriller.


p.s. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I can't figure out why my images aren't enlarging. arg!


Well, it looks like everyone has been busy lately, but that's not gonna stop this blog.

I'm a big fan of character design, I also think we should all be drawing until it hurts, so let's do some character designs...
I think for this week let's do..."An Army of ...One?
Instead of just going by the topic, let's do Five (5) different designs for one type of character, Military, Trooper, Pilot, Hitman, Warrior, Guerrilla Soldier, etc, etc. Some type of action like character, and think "Concept Art" I mean this is "Concepts" weekly.
It doesn't end there! let's see the progress, I am really impressed with the posts we get that show the progress, so do thumbnail, draw accessories, do sharpie silhouettes. Don't stress on polishing it.

here is a link to a page of reference, also browse the site if you'd like...
 Here's another good page.....

The Leech!

Quick Post...Quick Sketch for the post, if leeches joined forces!

Big Bear!

I obviously was                                         
thinking big with this one                     
I really enjoy stuff like this       
            because i can put a large amount
                         of detail, which makes it look
                           more interesting. I tought i should
                  do more using different famous
       mountains, also I wanted to color it
but that's gonna have to come later
I really enjoyed this topic I just hope      
I'm not the only one.........

Well since no one else has posted a topic, I'll take it from here!

We were watching Monsters, inc. with my son today and I have to admit, I really love that movie, the one thing that really caught my attention was how, in the monster world, they lived almost exactly like humans, except a lot of what they did was opposite of our world...

So when it comes to animals, creatures, inanimate objects and the like, I love giving them human qualities, also called Anthropomorphism.
                       For this week I propose...."If only we were human"

If Pixar can make toys, bugs, cars and fish live with human qualities, why can't we come up with something original.

for anyone who may need a more thorough explanation...

heres mine. a bit late and not done though.


I spent many many minutes staring at our kitchen trying to get inspired. I liked the look of our microwave and went from there. On the back there is the grating where the fan blows out. That's what caught my eye the most. I also incorporated the boxy shape and the smooth surface. I doodled the first rough while lying in bed. I cleaned it up through tracing then trace inked it with a micron on tracing paper. I colored in photoshop using the beautiful multiply layers and the regular old default brush.

this week was a hard one

I wanted to do something in the way of Myazaki and failed!

Ideation Sketches

I wanted to explore some different 
 possibilities for the scarecrow
It's quite fun to sketch
different ideas,
Also, I
like the
way we all get 
pumped about drawing
thanks to Iain McCaig, then only
a week later the blog becomes forgotten again...

sarcasm of course....

The Straw Ward

Wanted to give mine a bit of badass. I really like the three amigos of the OZ stories. For some reason, I thought it would be cool if the scarecrow had been a massive figure, watching over miles of fields.

Can't Scarecrow....

I decided to go with something silly...enjoy!

I will try to post more if I have time! I like the new changes.
