Car Repairs and One Drawback to Summer Weather

Yesterday I took my car to the dealership to get an alignment. I knew there was a good chance I would have to be in the waiting room for a while because I had not pre-scheduled an appointment, which is why I brought a lot of reading material (Volumes 1 and 2 of the All-Star Superman TPB). The room was pretty full when I got in there so I picked a spot and started reading. It was bad enough trying to mentally block out the Rachael Ray show from the rooms T.V. but on top of that there was a woman talking nonstop on her cell phone. The idea of talking at a whisper or taking it outside never crossed her mind, so there I was trying to block out her voice as well, which was damn near impossible. On top of that, she was wearing flip-flops, which is one of the reasons I hate the summer. In my personal opinion I would say maybe 10 percent of our society should have the choice to wear flip flops or sandals. 12 max. The warm weather seems to bring out a breed of people that don't quite understand how gross their feet really are. Let me put it this way, if your feet look like you've been walking in powdered donuts all morning and your toenails look like Fritos Corn Chips, do everyone a favor and wear some GD shoes. Real shoes that cover up everything.

Batman phone sketch

I was on the phone for a lengthy time last night so I grabbed my sketch book at one point and started sketchin' . Colored this one real quick in photoshop. KURETAKE!

Robin the Boy Wonder

Pen and ink on bristol board colored in Photoshop. I tried out my Kuretake brush pen along with a couple Micron pens and a normal brush on this one. As far as the Kuretake goes, I used it to outline Robins body and for some areas of rendering like the dimples and folds in his shirt and pants, his hair, face and mask and some areas of his boots. I used the Microns on his cape to keep a consistent line weight, with exception to some areas around his arms. I used a #4 brush and ink to block in the dark areas on the back of his legs, the bottom of his boots, the tail of his shirt and his wrist guards. I did not really like how those areas came out, but that's what these studies are for.

Poor Pac-Man. He's been in his room crying all day because he found out that Ms. Pac-Man was cheating on him with the pilot from Galaga.
