Oh Crap! It's 2013! Have I even been drawing anything lately?

The answer is ACTUALLY YES!  Just haven't found the time or energy to post anything on this here Art Blog.  Something I claimed I would remedy last year....but you know how that stuff goes.  So now it's April and since the local MCBA Springcon is next month I figured I better at least try to seem somewhat relevant in the world of comic art.  Ya know....gotta keep my throngs of fans satiatied.  All 4 of them.

So aside from a graphic novel project I've been pouring all my free time and soul into, I have done a few doodles and scrawlings here and there....mostly for our art class but here are some fun ones. 

This one had a name but I can't remember for the life of me what it was.  We put a strange word on the board and had the kids come up with their own interpretation of what that could possibly be.  Mine was this dude and his flying toilet paper rolls.

When my frustrated pal casually mentioned me drawing a picture of him punching a bratty baby, my twisted, childless mind came up with this.  Admit it...if you parental types are being honest, when your kids are bratting it up to 11 and beyond, there are times you fantasize about moments like this.

I dig this chick so much I'm gonna haveta make her into a character for one of my comic book/graphic novel ideas.   Just some sort of futuristic/space mechanic.  I really just created her around the thumbnail of this pose.

Just before heading to class on this day, I played hooky from work and watched an L.A. Marzulli documentary DVD called Watchers 5.  In it they discussed all sorts of supernatural and paranormal being the phenomenon of The Black Eyed Children.  It was still fresh on my mind when we got to class so I presented this depiction to the class.....and hopefully to their nightmares!  If you think that's too mean of me...I will refer you to the baby punching picture above.

I saw that you would be at SpringCon and I was wondering if you would be up for a commission? If so how would I contact you?

Michael will,

Sure. I can do comissions. Would you be wanting me to do one at the show or, since theres still a few weeks before the show, would you like me to work on it now and have it ready for the show? I'd need to know subject matter, level of detail ( from rough sketch to tight pencils), head shot, full body, inks,etc.... From there I can determine the comission price.

Lemme know what you wanna do. Thanks.

The last few years I have been giving artists songs or music and just asking them to draw what they see, is that something you would be interested in?

Mattroplex said...

I've never done anything quite like that. Send me a link to the song and I'll see is I could do it. What sort of budget are you wanting to stay within?

Michael will said...

Normally it's between $40 and $70 and I give a list of songs and let the artist pick what he would like to do.

The songs are not in any order just pick the one you like and feel you can be creative with.

Just get back with me on price and which one you picked.

The list is

Metallica - Until it sleeps

Metallica - Nothing Else Matters

Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall

Schism by Tool

ine inch nails- every day is exactly the same

Hoist the Colours

Megadeth - Deadly Nightshade

Thrice - Under a Killing Moon lyrics

I'm a Metallica fan so I'd like to take a stab at NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. How does $60 sound? And just to clarify....You just want me to draw what comes to mind from the inspiration of the song, correct? This already sounds cool.

Michael will said...

$60 is fine and you are correct I just want you to draw what comes to mind from the inspiration of the song. So any style you want to use feel free.
