Today’s Friday Fan Art is my take on the wonderful Robbie and Bobby.
Krishna over at PC Weenies is doing an experiment for the next month or so. He’s picked two people and he’s gonna mentor them in drawing. I’m glad he’s doing it, it’s a great way to give back to the webcomic community. Krishna is going to take their drawings and critique them on his blog and help them better their drawing ability. Now I tried to get into this experiment but I didn’t. But that won’t stop me from playing along. So here’s my assignment for this week. A full-body drawing of a heavy set tall man that conveys anger, tired, and happiness.
And Krishna encourages people to play along and put your links in the comment section. He should have the drawing from his mentees tomorrow on his blog.
I’ve been a fan of Matt’s for a while now and I’m glad that he decided to compile some of his comics into a collection. ‘Jumblaya!’ is a very diverse collection, 13 in total. There’s a little bit for everyone, romance, betrayal, robots. Matt does a good job of telling compelling stories within a limited amount of pages. The featured stories in this collection are ‘Eight Legs One Demand’, ‘Conversations in Orbit’, ‘Mortal Kourting’ and my favorite, ‘The Darkshore Detectives #1’. Not only do the stories suck you in but the art is top notch as well. I can’t wait for Volume 2
You can get a hold of a copy of this Anthology at http://bit.ly/jumblaya
And make sure to check out all the other stuff Matt is doing over at http://www.inkwellian.com/
The store is open! You can now buy Underwhelmed books. I have a couple of choices for ya, you can either get the physical book or a PDF download. So the books I have are the second collection “Pigging Out” which includes 200 comics from 2010 and 2011. And Volume One which has every comic from 2008 and 2009. Each come with some extra stuff.
As you know I had some people do some guest comics for me a while back. One of those people was Matt McCray. I thought I’d repay the favor and do some fan art for him. I decided to do something with his newest creation, The Darkshore Detectives. They’re wanna be detectives that are just starting out. But does a magnifying glass and a pipe really make you a detective? Here’s my take on his characters.
