Tomorrow’s comic won’t be so muddy. The Higgins Eternal Black Water Proof Ink is not so water proof when it’s been sitting in storage for several years. I have other inks that are pretty solid, so tomorrow’s comic should be a lot cleaner. Enjoy.

This is basically a streamlined view of my life thus far. If it doesn’t make sense, let me know.

I like amorphous shapely backgrounds of nothingness…

I was very driven was I was younger. By the time I was 16 I was working as an assistant for Ken Penders on the Sonic the Hedgehog books for Archie Comics. By the time I was 19, I was working as a storyboard artist at O Entertainment on the thumb movies.

This is true. My parents called me (jokingly) their retirement plan from an early age. This puts a hell of a lot of pressure on a kid.

The teacher told my parents that my drawing was distracting to the other students. The behavioral class had instructors there that were trained to spot personality and mental issues. They realized I was bored, not problematic and required far more stimulation than what I was getting.

…breaths for the first time.

This is after about a weeks work or so, anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour, of adding clay. Because I kept turning him over in my hands the black smeared into the white a bit, but the shape is starting to come together.

This is a pretty good profile shot. The sword is only loosely placed in his hand. The weight is good enough that I can probably point it forward when I get to that point.

This is T from the back. I have not defined any muscle tissue yet, this is just roughing in the black.

From the back he is starting to look like a cat. His feet still seem huge to me though.

The goggles are only roughed in foil at this stage and might be subject to change. They are only placed on the head, not pinned or attached.

Before there is form…

This is a project I’ve been working on for some time without really planning on keeping track of during the process. However, looking through some old files, I realized I had a good chronological series of photos from the process. As of this writing, I am not yet finished with this statue.

As of this writing, I have much of the clay on but am slowly building form. Once completed, I will fire it in my oven and then paint the fine details. it is a gift to Ian for all of the support he’s given me over the years of the character Captain T we made together.

I started with a heavier armature wire, needle-nose pliers, and crimping pliers. In this photo you can see that I started with the silhouette of Captain T. You can see his belly, nose and profile beginning to form.

After generating his profile, I started with the base. This will eventually be a free-standing statue so balance is key. By starting out with the feet and legs it allows me to secure a solid stance to take on the weight of the rest of the sculpture. Note the model sheet in the background.

Livestream Progress

I got a lot done today on Metropolis. We finished the wires connected to the Robot, and blocked in the majority of the right medical table. Maria’s table is somewhat blocked in as well, but we’ll get to her next week. Here are some detail pics and links to the videos.

The wires snake behind the figures and hopefully tie the front to the back by crossing that distance.

Here is a detail pic of some of what we did today. I brought out a lot of the detail in the coat and some in the table as well as behind Rotwang.
