Today’s sketch of the day (#1… I may add another one in a few minutes here) is brought to you courtesy of Buddy Scalera, who has been putting out, as far as I know, the only comic book photo references, and performed by Loukas Papas. I changed the light source, and replaced Lou’s head with a more Asian look, because, you know, racism. (Actually, it’s because I just watched Warrior’s Way, and wanted something along the lines of something out of that movie, but just got really lazy with the “costume” and hair.)

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas, and a happy new year! I’ll spare you the cheesy “end-of-the-world” joke and get straight to today’s sketch:
A more cartoonish Bast. The smirk she’s brandishing kinda makes her look like Emily from the Corpse Bride. Little bit lop-sided in the chest area, but in my defense one shoulder IS raised a bit higher than the other.

I kinda fluctuate between two styles: a more realistic, quasi-American style, and a cutesy, Ben Caldwell/anime-esque cartoon style. I like to consider the latter my “primary” style, switching over to the more serious one mostly to hit and push the limits of my drawing capacity. That’s not to say I’ve “perfected” my main art style, mind you – you should see the rest of this page – but when I get it, I like what I have.
Anyway, this character I call Marrassameut, or “Mara” for short. I was going for a harlequinn-type design, but it seems to have come out more as a geisha/Princess Amadala kinda character. Wasn’t even trying for the yin/yang shoulder poofs. I still like the design, but I probably could have invested more thought into the legwear. Boots, it seems, are not quite my specialty.

Just to start things off with a bang, and to test out the photo upload feature, here’s a photo of a sketch of the Joker. Don’t worry, I do know how to work a scanner, but that’ll come later.
