This is how the season seems to be right now. Actually I have a hard time believing anyone really has a problem with Starbucks, but there you go.

Drawlloween Day 20: Skull.

Drawlloween 20: Skull.
I’ve been too occupied to keep up with this, sadly, so I’m going to skip a few things on the list and do the fun ones. Here’s my favourite skull, Murray from the Monkey Island games. The mighty demonic skull, the harbinger of your doom, and who “would look great with a melting candle on his forehead.”

Drawlloween Day 14: Bat

I was thinking of ways to make a swarm* of bats more interesting so I thought about making it a 3D picture.

*What’s the correct term for a group of bats?

Drawlloween Day 5: Werewolf (v2)

A second take on my werewolf picture. I think I like this version better.

Drawlloween Day 5: Werewolf

By total chance, Warren Zevon came on while I was drawing this, so I threw in a reference to round out the picture.

Drawlloween Day 4: Vampire

Ever been in a relationship you knew was only going to end one way but you just couldn’t stay away?

Drawlloween Day 3: Goblin

This one's may a little less Halloween-y, but it seemed like a fun situation to draw a goblin in.

Overall I'm not super-satisfied with how the Goblin turned out, but since this is a drawing-a-day situation I'm not going to worry about it.

Drawlloween Day 2: Devil

I drew a blank at "devil" because - unlike the other monsters and creatures on the Drawlloween list - I've never really found the devil to be that interesting, and I had no new take on it. On its own it's just evil for the sake being evil - what I find more entertaining are the people involved with the devil. Those who would be influenced by it or would carry out acts in its name. So with that in mind, and because I've been a real X-Files mood since the trailer for the new series dropped, I did this.

Drawlloween Day 1: Ghost

I've been busy the past few days so I'm starting Drawlloween a bit late. Hopefully I can catch up. Here's day 1, Ghost. I felt like trying vectors for this.

If you're a Tumblrer, I'm going to post my work there too which you can follow at

I've been trying to draw more, but apparently software is a new creative block. So here's a screenshot of something I was working on last night before I lost the file.

One benefit of this was when trying to open the file again I remembered I'd installed the new version of Mischief. Hopefully it doesn't break like this, because I really like sketching in it.

Happy Birthday Snoopy

Apparently it's Snoopy's 65th Birthday. #DrawSnoopy is trending on Twitter. I've been a fan of Peanuts longer than I can remember but I still find Snoopy one of the hardest characters ever to draw.

Out of Place

I've not done a whole lot of personal drawing lately so when the mood takes me to create something, I think it's worth doing that instead of sleeping. But that opinion may change when I get up for work in a few hours.

Manga Studio

I picked up Manga Studio on offer the other day and decided to give it a quick try this evening. Some of the brushes are really nice and capture the look of traditional media. I'll need to have a play with this and test it out for future projects.

For now, here's a test based on something poignant a friend once said.

Draw All The Robots - Details

A few close-ups from my previous post. I remember feeling too embarrassed to post this at the time. It hadn't occurred to me that someone might have already done this sort of thing.
