New blog for a group of guys in art purgatory trying to find out where we want to go with our love of art. We are currently working at legoland as caricature artists. This blog is a means to challenge each other and showcase our work to each other and also stay in touch and continue to motivate and inspire each other. every week (or whenever theres time) theyll be a subject posted and the members will have a week to meet the challenge and post it. Or just post whenever you want as long as you get your stuff up there. they can be sketches, rendered paintings, digital work or fingerpaints from your own blood whatever media!! ok biznatches. do work!

Even "Miss 1990" gets to participate in the 80s Cartoon Challenge!

80s
Okay so I think I'm the only one in this club who was born in the 90s...
That makes me cool, right?
Just kidding...
So I loved My Little Pony as a kid, what little girl didn't? It's the quintessential little girl show: ponies, flowers, bright colors, magic...
Okay... so the last actual birthday party I had, which was my 14th, was My Little Pony themed. Because I NEVER got that REAL pony I always wanted.
Anywho, this is Tofu Sparkle Tutti Pie [with a block of steaming tofu tattooed to her ass!], angrily consuming flowers like a good vegetarian.
I wanted to add more maimed flowers, trying to piece together their broken bodies, entrails streaming out...
AND I wanted to do a nice, kind of detailed background...
But I am done with this. I've gotten pretty sick of it.

80's Cartoons - Transformers: Prime

Ugh...it has taken a while to get around to some of this......SO here is a REALLY quick (and kinda crappy) digital sketch of Optimus Prime from The Transformers. 

Man I can barely remember the 80's.....

My Very Very Very Late Femme Fatale-ish Thing


So here it is.
Yes, sloppy line work. It's all crazy and uneven and weird. Oh well! This is my first Photoshop inking-and-coloring endeavor... and I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I would love to do more detail, make her costume more embellished and all that jazz, but I'm done with it for now.
I think I should try to do some other stuff... very, very slowly and steadily, of course. Because that's just how I work.

Marko's Party Colored


Teenage muscle-bound ninja turtles


I did not have a TV growing up, so I didn't watch the show, but I did love the toys!!

I was going for a fish-eye perspective, but it looks wonky.

*Jem! Trooly Outrageous!!!!



I liked watching Jem as a little one. I always wanted those earrings of hers to make awesome holograms, lawd noes how useful those lil' thangs would be to me...
Anywhoo, I used Prisma markers for colour and Copics for the outline. Since I do not have a scanner, I took a picha of it and spruced it up some bits in Photoshop 7. (*whisperwhisper* I did little sparkles on her earrings...)

Cheating


I did this a long time ago but it fits the theme. HERCULOIDS! My own take on them, not supposed to be accurate. Did it for a forum contest I think.
