THANK YOU fellow slackers!!!

Hey everyone....
I really can't thank you all enough for all of your hard work and incredible talents, without which Sketch Slackers would not have been possible. I'm going to take a little time off and hopefully launch SS 2.0 in the Spring. As a thank you and a memento...I made a 'Slacker' paper toy for you all. Enjoy!

Alien Hunter

Sorry I'm so late!  I've had this idea in my head for awhile.  I'm looking for constructive feedback on this:  The girl was the hardest part to draw.  I've always been terrible with the ladies (and they're hard to draw too, har har).  Anything I could have improved on?

Simple yet Elegant

Available soon!



So maybe I was running a little behind and wanted to throw a post up for this months theme... I think it ended up being a slightly funny Tee, and who knows maybe someone would buy it someday..

Back in the Game

Ok I'm back! It's been a minute since I actually did something for the blog. I've loved all of the themes for the past several months I just didn't have the time. I do plan on catching up because I wanted to do those themes pretty badly. I'll be posting submissions for old themes along with my new submissions if that's OK.

Here's my zombie Green Lantern. I don't know if what he's doing is possible, even within a world where a guy can make stuff with his willpower but, I decided I don't care.


This is a submission for the sketchbook theme from way back. I've been a bit obsessed with Fist of the North Star recently. For those who aren't aware, Fist of the North Star is a manga about a martial artist who can make people explode with his punches. Pretty rad. Anyway, this is the main character, Kenshiro.

Super Zombie

EEeeeehhhh...can't...stop...making....paper....toys....
Next theme I'll get back to Illustrating. I just love doing these things so much. They're addictive! I thought it'd be fun to do a zombie Superman. I know, I know...I was already told that he couldn't be a zombie because his skin can't be pierced. BUT!...a zombie could have been munching on some kryptonite and then snacked on Superman. Problem solved!


My process:
1. Create the die lines in Illustrator and make a color palette
2. Create the vector art in Illustrator.
3.Render the Illustration and apply textures in Photoshop
4. Mock it up and shoot a photo!

zombie batman




bats has always been one of my favorite characters so I just had to zombify him.

Zombie Flash

The Flash has always been one of my favorites, and I think he's the only comic hero out there without a movie  coming out this summer, so I thought he needed some attention.  This is what happens when Zombie Flash stops abruptly.
Here's a look into my process:

Calvin and Hobbes



Although not "superheroes" ...these guys were always my heroes, and they were a comic...
so it counts, right?

braaaaaaaaains

ok so I thought I would get a jump on this month's theme...

Comic Book Character Zombies

I'm thinking to myself ... zombie hulk would be pretty cool. maybe a lot skinnier from muscle waste and lack of food, etc..

so I google it.. well well.. zombie hulk already done. hmm.




which leads me to another link about zombie spiderman. ok. .forget that.

which leads me to a link about Marvel Zombies.

which leads me to be both inspired and demoralized in one fell swoop.


I mean.. look at wolverine.. flipping SWEET!




moral of the story: i need to read more comic books.

Ninja Turtle - Brian Allen

I'm a little late on this one - sorry.  I wanted to draw something where the ooze took Raph one step away from human and closer to turtle.

Boot the Foot!


I geeked out a little about this theme. Growing up, I had every ninja turtle action figure known to man. I wanted to get going on this theme right away, however at the beginning of the month my sketch of the turtles wasn't quite coming together as well as I would have liked. So I hit the internet for some Turtles inspiration, and the Turtle Van appeared on an image search. I forgot all about this amazing mode of transportation and I thought, "Only the Ninja Turtles can pull off riding around town in a mini van....I must have this out of paper!"
I do have another idea for a Tshirt design....I may try have another Turtles post in the coming weeks.

Han Solo shoots first and asks questions later

Sorry for being a bit late on this one.
Fun Fact: May 4th is national Star Wars day...so if you forgot to dress up, there is always next year.
I had a lot of fun getting buried in the ol' sketchbook again this month, however I've never been great with hair so it was a bit of a challenge for me. I wanted to leave the black outlines off of this one, so I finalized the drawing in Adobe Illustrator. Hope you guys like it. Looking forward to the Turtles in a half shell next month! Go ninja, go ninja, go!!!

Hi Everyone!!

Hi guys, I know this illustration has nothing to do with this month's theme or anything, but I just realized I haven't post anything here since I was invited, so I feel like a douchebag. I promise I'll try to upload more stuff regularly.



This piece is for a show with The Autumn Society & Brave New Worlds that opens June 3rd.

Sketches


This has been a crazy month...as I'm sure it has been for you all as well. I tried to get some new stuff in my sketchbook but came up short. So I pulled some doodles I have done in the past. I'm really looking forward to working out a finished Illustration for Star Wars! Should be awesome!

Hank the Hipster... normal size hands and feet are way to mainstream.

El Diablo...the badest of the Mexican Wrestlers. He'll cut you with a single chest hair. Pirate Pete...He's a pirate.
