Life Drawing! part 2

Today is life drawing day! My day to day work has kept me from producing any pin-up material so I'll share some more of my life drawings...which, once again, contain nudity. I remember really liking this guy's face for all of its nooks and crannies. I don't think I was particularly flattering with my caricature of him in the last image but I always feel there is no harm done if the model never sees the drawing.

For the curious among you I'll tell you that I draw with PITT brand markers by Faber Castell. I like doing life drawing with the sepia and slightly lighter flesh coloured pens. No under drawing or anything in pencil (you can see in the second image how much "searching" I did before finding the right lines). All are drawn in an 8.5 x 11" coil bound sketch book. It's just so much easier to manage than big ol' life drawing pads!

I feel bad not showing you something more substantial today so I'll close by suggesting that you check out MeatCute for the interview with Luc LaTulipe! I think Luc's art is just plain terrific (especially the image of the two guys making'll have to follow the link to see the one I mean;) There's tons of other great stuff at MeatCute as well.

I bid thee all adieu, and hope you're all having as great a summer as I am!

Phat! Vivisector! X-Statix!

Boy, I realize now just how safe I played this one! :) Voltaire anticipated something "naughty under the covers" and then drew up this cool, and sexy take on our favourite super-duo! I hope, Voltaire, that you don't mind me linking to your drawing but I think it's swell! (And, oddly enough, I was going to do a shower scene with the guys but opted insted for the classic "standing around" pose). I'll have to do another drawing to redeem myself.

I couldn't resist having Phat fat-up at least a little of his body, especially with Myles in wolf mode. It's too bad the X-Statix had to end...on the other hand it was nice that they went out on a high note. I always hate when my favourite characters get taken over by another writer and/or artist and I don't like the new approach. Cheers to Mike Allred and Peter Milligan for creating Phat and Vivisector!

Francois, I hope it was worth the wait! Trust me, there'll be more drawings of these two! And if I ever find it I'll post the photo of me dressed as Myles posing with a girl I met at a convention who was dressed as Dead Girl.

Also, I was reading Patrick Fillion's Boytoons blog yesterday and saw that he'd listed me among his top Five Blogs of Note! Thanks Patrick! Check out Boytoons! It's a great way to find new man-art on the net! For those of you used to my tameness be warned that there is nudity! ;)

I'm going away for a week's vacation! Before I go I thought I'd give you a little sneak peak at Phat and the Vivisector! You'll just have to wait 'till I get back to see the whole thing!
Are you in suspense?

See you in a week!

Monster Beach IV

It's SUMMER!! I've already been to Toronto's beach a few times (I think I got a little sunstroked)!

I really wanted to do a joke with the Invisible Man because 1. he's one of my favourite Universal film characters and b. I could full frontal nudity and not be embarrassed!!! There you go! The other Monster Beaches can be found here, here and here. I hope you guys are having a great summer!

Oh yeah, I actually really wanted to put up a drawing of Superman because he's the big hero of the week! I saw the movie and really quite liked it. If they do a sequel (and there's talk) I'd love to see them do Bizarro! Even if it's a subplot I think a Superfight with Bizarro would be awesome! And Bryan Singer must continue to direct.
