Page 6 of Bogan Bots is done. I decided that I wasn’t executing on the color well enough so for now Bogan Bots will be drawn in black and white. But now this gives me more time to polish my line work a bunch more.

So this piece needs a little bit of explanation. My girlfriend wanted to get my dad a uniqlo tshirt for Christmas which is of Mike and Sully made of ivy. My dad’s favorite movie of all time is Monsters Inc and he loves gardening. One problem that shirt is only available for women. So we decided to do a joint present where I would draw a similar piece except with native Australian plants and my girlfriend would pay to get it printed on a shirt. The trees in the piece are a Jacaranda, Morton Bay Fig and a miniature Ghost Gum.

I have two things to show this week. First is page 4 of my web comic Bogan Bots.

Next up is a portrait of my own character in an upcoming pathfinder game. octavia

Apart from these drawings I did some work on my games and started writing a review for Pokemon Sun and Moon that you can expect shortly.

The coloring for the cover page that I uploaded yesterday was bothering me so I went back and re-did it. I Also re-proportioned Sheila’s head so she isn’t as alien like. Anyway updates of Bogan Bots will be on Fridays.

I’m really excited to share the start of a comic that I’ve been working for the last little bit. It’s called Bogan Bots and it is about the somewhat ever disgruntled sentient robot called Sheila. Currently the drawing process is one of starting physical and transitioning to digital for bits of polish. The art style is likely going to bounce around a bit until settle on something a bit more permanent but anyway hope you like it.

Here is the finished QWERPline poster that I gave to Loading Ready Run at Pax Aus yesterday. Its super nice to have this thing done and printed out. It took me two full weeks of work to draw it all.

I know I have’t posted in a while. I think I will switch to  making weekly updates rather than daily that way folk on facebook don’t see a bajillion posts ever week. And this way I get to show more stuff for the week and more interesting stuff.

Just a heads up with the above image, that’s the half sized image as the full thing was too large to upload onto wordpress (115cm files are large, who knew). So if you want the full thing just send me a message via wordpress or to my email kipentheodor@gmail.com and I’ll send it to you.

 

So a lot of changes today. The characters that got added today is Mrs. Snubstitch, Lance Clint, Barbara Doolie, Raphael Krinklestouf, and Granton Bumper. I also once I got tired of adding new characters decided to start the clean up process. So you can see hard black lines around quite a few characters. Eventually I will use that as the outline for everything. I also added in Jimmy Jams and the Prank Patrol in the background in the currently obnoxiously white Prank Tank. I plan to have ALL the characters drawn in by the end of the week so I can start working on polishing all of this. Hopefully my computer doesn’t start crashing from the file size.

So there is this podcast that I watch called QWERPLine which is about a radio station called QWERPLine. And the makers of it are coming down to Australia for the first time for PAX. So I decided to make a full cast photo of all the QWERPLine characters so far (31 in total). This is my WIPQWERPLINEProgress.jpg

I posted another two characters in another file the other day. Which brings me to 11/31 characters drawn. Its starting to come together and I’m enjoying putting in a bunch of small references through the image. For example Ball Hinkley’s bottle of “Ray Romano” perfume, and the light rail trail that has crashed into the radio studio.

Did some drawing of realistic noses and mouths for the sake of practice as well as started a longish term project of creating a full cast picture of all the characters from the excellent QWERPLine by LoadingReadyRun. Today I drew Richtor Hammockslam and his occasional co-pilot Joy. I also started work on Kana Quest again. Today I just worked on making the game work with all resolutions. I have to say taking a break from Kana Quest was a good thing to do because now I can see all these things I can do to make it better.

So yes. It has been a LONG time since I’ve posted anything. But I do have a good reason. Mainly is that I went away to Sydney for a while and then I started a new game project that took longer than was intended.

But said game project is now done. So I am very happy to present to everyone my game “The Elephant”.

(PC and Mac Versions are within the folder)

So what is this game? Well the inspiration of this game was comedy sketches. I wanted to see if I could make a short comedy game of about 1-5 minute length in a week. Now obviously it took me about 3 weeks to complete. But the challenge was a simple comedy game made in a week. I might do something like this again in the future so hopefully when I do so I will be able to get much closer to the one week goal.

 

Second thing that I’ve done recently is a poster for RMIT Music and their next concert. I didn’t post it when I finished it as I was waiting for them to post it onto their official page first.

Third is another commission I did recently for a friends pathfinder character. I am pretty happy how this drawing came out. I am happiest with the lighting with all the stars flying of his magic. In terms of things I think I could have done better I feel as though it probably doesn’t have as much contrast from the inky black areas to where the stars a illuminating things.GeordieCharfinal.jpg
