This is just a lil fun thing I put together. I drew this years ago, but decided to color it just now. I'm really excited that Aaron decided to do another season. I'm a huge fan of the strip and the comic. But enough dick-riding. Enjoy.

This is my version of the Justice League, the greatest superhero team ever. Trust me when I say that I'll go into depth with each character and provide explanations for the choices I made. I'll also provide my revamped back stories for the characters and how they all tie together to form the Justice League. This is just the promo picture. So enjoy!

Speaking of inks, my lines got crapped on when I scanned and used threshold on this shit. I was pissed. I might have to start inking thicker. But yeah, I posted the original line art with pencils so you can see a comparison. Anyway, I hope you like. I'm glad I'm done. THANKYA GEEZUZ!

Yeah, mine will be gone in less than an hour, so if you click a link to it anywhere on the blog, you'll follow it to Nowheresville. I'll get it back on the 3rd, but yeah... it's for "religious reasons" or something deep I think. So yeah... see ya on this thingy or Google+. Deuces.

Notice my blue line drawing? Well, it's all good. That'll be gone before you know it. After you scan your picture, drag it into Photoshop and begin editing. DOUBLE CLICK the BACKGROUND LAYER and press OK.
Now, I drew my Koala on brown paper, but I want my image to be Black and White; just my lines and the white paper. THIS IS THE WAY TO GET RID OF THE BROWN PAPER IF YOU DREW ON BROWN PAPER: An easy fix is to turn the image into Black and White. You do this by going to IMAGE- ADJUSTMENTS- BLACK&WHITE. There will be a menu that pops up and you'll see a set of color sliders: Reds, Yellows, Greens, Blues, Cyans, Magentas. Slide them all over to the FAR RIGHT/ 300%, then press OK. Your picture should look something like this:
Your picture should be faded black in the spotted black areas and there should still be a trace of your pencils on it as well. It's ok, we're almost there.
What you'll do next is IMAGE- ADJUSTMENTS- THRESHOLD. Another menu will pop up but it'll only contain 1 slider. There'll be a 3 digit number up top. Set it to 145. This part is can be adjusted to how you want your inks to look. I just use 145 because it looks the best for my style... and it's what my professor said to do. But you can make it any number you want. Just makes sure it complements your line work!
After you've followed these simple steps, you should have clean, crisp looking inks without the grey leftover lines. You might have to touch up a bit with the PENCIL TOOL and get rid of minor spots of black that were dark enough to make it through the THRESHOLD process. Your finished product should look a lil somethin' like this:

This was a quick sketch I did of my waitress while I was eating at a restaurant. She wanted me to draw her because she saw my book. I agreed. Then she wanted it... for free. I was like, "Guuuurl, I'm a starving artist!" Then she was all, "C'mon, baby. Pweez!" The I said, "If you get me a free margarita, then I'll give it to you." She said no. So I told her to draw herself and leave me alone. The end.
These are my nephews. Well, not all of them are. They're twins (meaning there's only two in real life). My sister and I wanted to do a photo shoot with the boys, but do something a little more creative. The lighting, shots, and editing were done by me, of course. My sister helped by keeping the boys from falling off the couch. It's a lot harder to photograph two 8 month year olds than I thought. Enjoy.

I spoke with a potential client today and realized that I don't have a lot of my photography posted. This came as a slight disadvantage because the job requires a photographer. You can see where I'm going with this. So, yeah, I'm going to start posting more photos. Most of them are self portraits, and I know how you love to see my beautiful face. This is an oldie but here's a little treat for you:

Hey, do you have a Facebook? Of course you do. It's not like it's Myspace or something. Anyway, you should join the "Too Coole" Group page. Not because I told you so, but because deep down, you really want to. Here's the LINK, homie.

This has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. This movie has all the ingredients of a classic: 1. Rich, beautiful set design and costumes, 2. Great and engaging story and music, 3. Excellent performances, 4. Nigh perfection in camera work. I'm usually iffy about period pieces but this film is too immaculate to ignore. The thing is that it's one of those movies that if you choose to watch it, you have to WATCH IT. It's not one of those films you can walk in and out of and still be in the loop... ok? I was so happy when I found it on DVD for like $5 in a bargain bin a few years back. Ugh, I can't tell you how awesome this film is... you just gotta experience it for yourself, dude.
So here are some self portraits that I did a while back (when I had muh hairz). As you can see, I'm my favorite subject. *total narcissist* I'll leave a description of each, bloo blah...
This was a quick drawing I did (about 12 mins on the Photoshopz). I was pulling from a Venture Bros-esque kind of style. I think I did ok...
One of my favorite artist has to be Jamie Hewlett. Tried to merge his style with a little of my own. The glasses need work though. This was also a quickie but eh...
This was my own idea. I wanted to make a periodic element of myself (if that makes any sense). These aren't just random numbers either, so yeah, Da Vinci Code that shit and find out what it means... or not... you know what, never mind.
Yeah, so May 7th, I'll pour my life's work in front of a Marvel editor. Kinda iffy on this because I'm technically not too proud of a few things in my work. Gotta print a lot of shit before then too to update it. Got some mini's done though, so I'll stick those in there. Also wanted to do at least one whole Too Coole comic before then. I already have a script, just need to get the time to do it (two jobs, twin newborns, school, apartment hunting, graduation... ) Yuk, responsibilities sucks booty butt balls.
