It’s Just Logic: Hunting

Comic Strip: It's Just Logic: Hunting logic in video games

I’ve decided to start a new comic strip that makes fun of the logic in Video Games, called “It’s Just Logic.”


Hunting in video games has always been strange to me. Some try to be realistic in the killing and skinning, others not. But they all have the same oddity, and that is the randomness of what you get from the kill. “Zelda Breath of the Wild” is the best example I can think of for this. You kill a bird in which it poofs into a puff of smoke, and leaves behind one leg with meat on it. You mean I shot a whole bird and its anatomy consisted of just a leg? No head or wings or feathers? Yet If I go fishing I get the whole fish?

Water~Color out of Space

Got some new watercolors from my wife for Christmas and decided to play around with them and some watercolor pencils I had on hand.

I love the Lovecraft Universe and decided to make a compilation horror painting based off of “The Color Out Of Space,” “The Dunwich Horror,” and a little of my own Lovecraft inspired horror with trees shedding their outer bark to reveal pulsating tentacles.

This took about 3 days to finish and I love the progress shots I took showing how this painting evolved. Not too bad for attempting multiple layers of color with some shading effects.


Free Concept Art Coloring Sheet #1

Welcome to the first freebie coloring sheet.

This is a concept coloring sheet for a future coloring book story. This one will be a fantasy series and is in early development. The concept does not represent what the final story or pages will look like. These sheets are done for testing the look I want to have for the story and you get the joy of having it to color for free. Please provide feedback and suggestions on the work. I want to make these coloring book stories fun to color and entertain you. You can provide feedback on my social media links you can find through my website.

A New Year and A New Adventure

I am very excited for 2020. I’ve Been working on a coloring book story project since late November and it is finally up and ready for sale on Etsy as a digital pdf download. It’s an original story I came up with out of my crazy imagination and I’ve been working countless evenings drawing and inking this thing. I hope people like it and buy it. I’m already working on more of them and will eventually put up some free pages to color as well. Thank you family and friends for all the support and especially thank you to Jaymie Rae Babel and Brett Manzer who got me back into drawing and to Eric C. Martin for teaching me new skills and techniques on how to improve my drawings. I will continue to draw each and everyday to improve my skills. Love you all. Peace!

Monstervember 2019 Day 30 Cucumber

Monstervember 2019 Day 30 Cucumber

We come to the last day of Monstervember. Now everyone can relax and…well crap there goes the holiday atom bomb. Now we enter cheery December. Or is it?

This marks the 61st drawing I’ve done in a row since Inktober. Do I keep the challenge going for myself into December? Time will tell. I may take a break from daily drawings while I work on other drawing projects.

Hope you all enjoyed the month of Monstervember and hope it will come again next year.

Monstervember 2019 Day 28 Face

Monstervember 2019 Day 28 Face

It gets in you, sucks the life out of you…but he spoke no more as what he spoke out of collapsed into grey dust.

Paraphrasing from the Colour out of Space. Really hoping the movie adaption is going to be good but I have issues and doubts with it taking place in modern times instead of the original time period of the late 1800s early 1920s.

Monstervember 2019 Day 27 Branch

Monstervember 2019 Day 27 Branch

Even the ugliest tree in the gloomy haunted forest can be the most beautiful. It’s the 27th day of Monstervember and today’s prompt is Branch. Which is ironic and creepy cause last night in very high winds a whole half of a tree feel and partially hit my 3 season room and dented the roof a little. Synchronization is weird sometimes.
