Bikini Fun Beach 2

This is a rather old outdated pic I made a month back. I'm posting it now because my art style has gone through a quite major change.

After doing some free sketching and really letting myself go loose, I've adopted a more fluid style of Duck Dodgers, (although I haven't fully mastered drawing the DD ladies yet!)

This is an unexpected benefit to my more recent KP art, because they are now more fluid and don't look so stiffely posed. More akin to Drew Gardner's unique fluidity, while maintatining SFToon's style of anatomy. Unfortunately, the newer pics are for private eyes and my forum goons until we can decide when to release it. For now I'm bumping older pics out of the forum.

So here's the last pic of my known drawing style, and marks a point of change in my drawing style. I can notice how stiff they look and the locked facial expressions. I may revisit this pic sometime in the distant future to adopt my newer style. As far as I'm concerned this one is less impressive compared to the newer stuff I have been pumping out recently. It's a subtle style change, but makes a whole world of difference.

I've recently been hooked on the Duck Dodgers series. For some reason it's a mystery why this show never stuck to me. Then again, back when it was on the air, it wasn't showing on my cartoon channels.

It's amazing how every episode was an excuse to put in some really sexy lady into the show. For some reason they exhibit a sort of John K. type style to them despite the female characters being designed by Lynne Naylor.

Lynne Naylor's art ranges to show very impressive pinups in her style, which is no wonder the show grabs my attention very well with Duck Dodgers as the focus of many one-sided romance events. This is an example of Ms. Naylor's work:

One of the first episodes I saw featuring some random babe was this redhead bounty hunter who was assigned to capture DD and deliver him to the bad guys, she eventually decided to join him to bring in the baddies into the Protectorate custody.

The more daring episode I saw was when DD and Porky had to go undercover in a high school. Yes a high school, with TEENAGERS. I respect the animators level of pure balls to decide to stick it up to the television censors and went ahead to show some cheerleader goods. Once again though, I can't help but notice some John K. type of influence to the human character designs:

Of course, they even gave us a close up of some magnificent panty flashes from the girls who were cheering for Porky.

Look at the smug on his face....

Of course I did not forget the magnificence that is the Queen of Mars. She showcased her flawless body while seducing the audience with her sultry version of Blues in the Night. The show's team were not afraid to give us a good look at her whole body up front:

And a glorious view of her behind:

And let's not forget our accompanying Tex Avery moment:

Oh, look, a Sauna image :D

Speaking of Tex Avery moments, there was one where DD was at what seemed to be a bar that resembles a strip club. Looking on to the dancer known as Space Angel:

Of course here's the response:

Man I love these Tex Avery moments...

In another episode DD and Porky had to team up with a cop to uncover the mystery of some missing diamonds. 70's style:

And it's no surprise that they gave us a relatively redundant scene of her ass... Just to really show it to us.

What really peaked my interest during that show though, was how the Queen showed us some real eye candy by striking a pose in this 70's number:

I also remembered the episode where DD got very close to making out with a supposed chick in an online MMO, but later decided that she was probably some old balding guy who lives in his basement pretending to be a chick.

Boy was he wrong ;)

There are more miscellaneous ladies where I can't adequately put a comment on, like the Catepoids and the Protectorate spy, and others:

With these aside there are other pics where the animators have sneaked in some very subtle innuendo. Like the episode where DD's giant robot fighter crashes inbetween what looks like 2 giant breasts. He recovers, gets up and says "Who built those nuclear power plants here?" Which makes you think, what type of nuclear power plant are shaped like 2 pairs of breasts? ;)

Other strange things include how well Daffy and Porky fit into their cross-dress attire:

Anywho, with these episodes, I will be working on a pic which includes re-using the pic of DD, looking nervously over his shoulder (which is the banner I drew in the title above), to the plethora of attractive ladies lined up behind him. I feel the coloring style I've adopted is pretty okay, we'll see how this goes.

10 minute sketch!

I was messing around on a piece of paper drawing random poses for Ember when I decided to take a break from it and draw Mandy, Dean Yeagle style.

I can't believe I pulled off a 10 minute Yeagle. I've never considered trying to draw Mandy in the past because I always thought I was never up for the challenge. I'm actually quite happy that this pic didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would be. First time I'm drawing Mandy too, I consider that quite a personal milestone.

I suppose if I continue drawing more Mandy I might be able to master some of Yeagle's techniques. This by no means is a walk in the park. Trying to analyze and learn Yeagle's art is comparable to the Wright Brothers trying to study supersonic jet technology.

Regardless, it's a sketch I've actually felt proud of. Haven't had a feeling like that in a long time. The pic may not look impressive, but it is to me, because I thought I was stuck drawing KP style or DP style all the time. I suppose why it took me hours to draw KP and DP style and do a 10 Minute Mandy pic is because of the anatomy limitations present in DP and KP style. DP style is the worst offender though.

I'm a little bored and decided to make some revisions to an old OC character concept that I've shelved last year.

This one was made in mid 2008 for absolutely no other reason than I was bored.

I revisited this concept again and let myself go completely loose and see what comes out from it. I didn't bother trying to stress over if anything turned out looking correct or not etc.

Ignore the pencil I drew in there. I was just messing around.

Anyway I was bored enough to give this revision a go by inking it in very quickly. In fact this may be my first quickie pic from start to finish. I've made some changes to her hair, her eyes, her name and a few others. Very simple concept, sharpened a bit up, and a worthy opponent for Enigmawing's Gemgirls. :)
