Goblins, trolls, etc.

So I have been thinking a lot about the hierarchy of goblins lately. Does it go: imp-goblin-hobgoblin-orc-troll-ogre? I'd like to know this. It is damned imperative...but not really. I'd like to start sketching these, maybe something akin to Brian Froud. Thoughts


Like this sorta.

The beginning of a new semester.

Howdy, everyone. Yesterday began my fourth semester at SHSU and even though I am a senior I will not be graduating for quite some time. But I am not upset about this fact! I will probably be done sometime in 2012. I'm taking some pretty sweet classes (finally starting my animation courses) and can't wait until I have some stuff to post up here from said classes. Aside from all that I have work at Buc-ee's, a massive gas station/Mecca for all road-trippers. It's still a food job but it's a job nonetheless. Gotta run for now but I will be posting some more things later. Good luck to y'all!

For my fellow kebabs...


Here is a choice mix of songs that I put together for you guys. I realized the other day that it has been a year since we've all been together and thought about all the good times we've shared. So here's to the future and may we continue to keep in touch like this. Kebabs.

Dreamsies


Ross! You should definitely try to control your lucid dream if you can. I have been witing until I dream like that again to try it, but it seems like I never can remember to do it when I am there. Also, Mikkel your dream was very interesting. You should definitely make it into a short comic or something. I cannot think of any dreams that are interesting that I have had lately, but I have been playing around with the idea of started a dream journal, where I draw what happened in the dream when I wake up. Anywhoser, this is a picture of a painting that I did using melted crayons and watercolors made from blending grasses. It so fun to experiment like that! BLAMMO!!

picture to the dream I had


By the way... AHEM. this is the crowning of Karl the First of Napoli. show him some respect guys. a king. he was son of the french king, who in 1262 granted him the kingdom of sicilia and Napoli. he lost sicilia in 1266 though. anyways, just a fact......... and it was bishop clements who crowned him. just if you wanted to know.

also a dream I had the other night. it was so cool to hear about your dream Ross!

it was a dream that started out with me as an old man, I wanted to tell about how I met a real friend. then it went back in time... I was a king in my fortress somewhere far away in a poor country (something like thailand). my fortress consisted of a park and lots of apartments, and everyone served me fine and really looked up to me. then one day, I saw my captain hurting one of the people with weapons (which were not legal in my city), and I, thee king, shouted Stop. I got angry with him because he said that it was necessary to show the people who was in charge. I refused and said, Nay, it is not. I was completely convinced that they would serve much better if you were friendly towards them. I chose to send him away and make him an outcast óf the city, he was not pleased that he could not come back. anyways. time went by and I walked around on my streets. suddenly, the apartments were bombed, and tanks came into my fortress, soldiers shot my people but not me. we could not do anything. it was my old captain who lead the attack, and he wanted me alive. he took my royal clothes away from me, and gave me a beggar's outfit and a little money - a 900 paper dollar, and a 100 paper dollar. then he said, now you can try being an outcast yourself, no one will accept you. and then the gates closed behind me and I started to walk out where I had not been before... the wilderness. I followed the road signs in the forrest and people spitted and laughed at me. suddenly I came to the real city, like New York, something so big that I had never seen the like. people still saw me like trash, but then I met an old man, he was a beggar and he lived with some other beggars on a street corner and slept on old couches. he invited me over and treated me nice, he gave me a coin and said that they always shared the money they each had begged to get through the day, and that I could stay for as long as I wanted.The old man never thought about himself, he cared only for others, and that was rare for me to see, I had payed people to be like that when I was king. anyways, there was a beautiful lady-begger (Malene), and she was funny and said what she wanted and felt, I became very close with her and we shared a couch. I took the coin and the 900 bill in one pocket, and the 100 bill in the other in case I got robbed. it made sense for some reason to do it like that, and it worked! because, one night a robber came and said, give me ALL your money beggar! I said alright choose the pocket you want and you will get it. if the robber chose the pocket with the 900 bill, Then I would give him the coin insead. but he chose the other one and got the 100 dollar bill. which was a lot more than he expected. so he was happy and went away. Malene was sad (my lady beggar friend), but then I showed her the 900 bill. I now said that we would have to live cheap, and buy super market sandwitches instead of restaurante. she agreed but said that she insisted on buying cashua nuts for 2 dollars every day. and that was fine with me, as long as she was happy, and we could survive. we lived like this for a while, and I got used to live cheap and be happy because of my new friends. suddenly I met two of my old servants from my younger days (two of my childhood friends), one of them was schluter, he worked in a restaurante now and he was really happy to see me, but did not understand why I was a beggar now. I told him the story, and he understood, he told me where to find my other friend/servant, simon, who now also worked in the city. we became friends, and I got to know them personally. instead of being their king I became their equal if not lower than that. but because of me being their old king, which they knew I were, they wanted to give me food and liquid. I lived like that for a long time. suddenly, my two old servants, now great friends, said, that people from my kingdom looked for me and the captain had been forced out again. but then I realised, that I had never felt better than I did now before, and even though it had been hard living like that, it had never been with someone I was close to. and even though I had a whole city who looked up to me before, I now had a few persons who I really cared for and really cared for me, and that made me happy. so I ignored the message... and then I woke up.

the most crazy part was that later that day, I turned on the radio where they said that 500 years ago at this time of year, it was common for the king to blend in with the people and dress up as a beggar, and let a beggar be king for one day. freaky coincidence, the same day I had the dream. anyways, I thought about making a short comic about it, shortening it down, just for fun, do you think that would be a good idea? and thanks for reading this much of my unpredictable mind! it is awesome what the human can dream. brilliant theme you came up with ross! very inspiring :)

dream from the other night..

I felt like walking across the street so I did. There were a few cats running after each other and I knew that I wanted to take pictures of them. So I did. After snapping a few shots I noticed that there were more and more animals running about the yard. The house was very pretty, but only in the nostalgic way I remember most of the homes from my childhood neihborhood being, ranch style homes are not my favorite. There are dogs and cats all over the place, then it started raining. The couple invited me in for some coffee or something and that's when I noticed that I had a very hard time controlling my limbs. My mouth felt very numb and I had a hard time forming sentences. The words were just dribbling out, much like the sensation of being very drunk. I fell into a table with a lamp, causing the lamp to crash to the ground. That's when it struck me - maybe I'm not awake. Maybe what if I'm dreaming? And then the world around me solidified. It became almost as if I was awake, well not really almost like it but it was completely like being awake. Lucid dream mode kicks in. I try to recall my training from the books I've read. Spin, spin, spin...observe all the details. There were boxes full of books, even more tables with lamps on them, the couple turned their backs to me and just stood in separate windows not speaking to each other. I bust down the door, utilizing the limitless freedom one has in this state. There is a man in the parking lot across the street. He looks like Garrett. He keeps yelling at me, "Ross you know you can do this!!". Without thinking, I stretch out my arm and use some sort of energy field to raise him off the ground. He laughs and encourages me to lift him higher off the ground. Up and up he went, until he disappears from view. I laugh and run toward a crowd of people. I hurl them into the air much in the same way I did earlier, except much more forceful, scattering them off like feathers. Then Nicholas started crying and woke me up.

I've dreamt like this before but I think it's possible to control it in the future.

me in 10 years.




Hahaha, john. I nearly forgot about that picture, that is hilarious. such niceness. I found some pictures of my farther, and I realized where I got my awesome model posing skills from.

inspiration


right now, I am getting really inspired by Mike mignola and Streetfighter artwork. you should look some of his stuff up. look at these sketches. it's so cool. but true, it is easy to get one of those non-drawing periods.

A Wednesday post.

After moving, working, and taking care of the baby, I have had absolutely no time whatsoever to do anything artistic. It's driving me crazy. I don't even feel like drawing or anything. But this will soon pass, I'm sure. Here's a drawing of a fat person's butt.

sounds awesome, I think you should just go crazy and come up with something that reminds you about our adventures:) or just random niceness, you are very inventive ! it could be the kebab saint, or mitch, or us as superheroes or whatever. hahaha. ok, I'll post something new tomorrow:)

The start of a brand new day...

Alright, fellas. For my first contribution I'd like to sketch out a few ideas for a logo of sorts. We can replace the standard one at the top of the page with whatever the heck we want. It'll be zany. It'll be handsome. It'll be downright bonkers. Or not. Whatever! I'll use my newfound knowledge of Illustrator and/or photoshop to create something splendiferous. I'll get to work on it sometime later tonight and I'll have a few drafts up by tomorrow. Suggestions??

Also, here is a link to an amazingly funny comic strip that Jenny and I like. EAT EAT!!
