Timmy promo poster!

I admit to being a jaded comic fan. Not a lot of new art impresses me, and a lot of the stories seem boring. But man, Eric really blew me away with this one, guys! He keeps getting better and better! Not that he stunk to begin with, you know what I mean!

Timmy Avatar-Colored

As I said, I finished the Timmy Avatar. I colored it in Photoshop. And despite my efforts to keep the coloring simple, I overdid it. A natural weakness I have. These are ofcourse drawings I am doing not only for promotional purposes but also to get a solid grasp on effectivly drawing the Timmy and Robot Characters for the book. More to come soon.

Timmy Avatar-inked

One of the things Tommy made clear in his script for Timmy The Killer Robot was that Timmy was this Peter Parker like Character. Only not as nerdy as Peter was when he first appeared. As a matter of fact, there is supposed to be a scene that implies that both Timmy and Peter may have "crossed" paths. But, you know how it goes. Thus we use the word "Implies" as to make clear that in no way are we actually using the property of Marvel without thier concent.


Okay. Well, I decided it would be cool to play with those old Marvel covers where they would show the face of Peter on one half and the face of Spiderman on the other half. Come on, you know which ones I'm talking about don't you?

============================I suddenly feel old===============================

Well, they did the same thing with the Hulk if my failing memory serves me right. So, here is my little tribute to those great covers.
Timmy style ofcourse.

I'm trying to reshape the way I draw for this, and future,comic(s). Basically, I am doing a little less of the digital thing and making a full fledged return to traditional inking. Making sure I add some nice solid blacks in there along the way, with a little bit of some smooth solid thick outlines. Two of my biggest all time insperitations in the field of comics are without a doubt, Arthur Adams and Mike Mignola. So I have purposed myself to go after these two Legends, incorparating little things here and there that make me go head crazy about thier artstyles.

I a nutshell:
Art Adams Big hands and Big feet, along with his attention to detail.
Mike Mignola's Dark solid blacks and edgy lines.

Lastnight I finished the coloring on the avatar, so I will post a final colored version later on.

More to come soonish!

Tommy's Timmy pages

Here's my attempt at drawing the Timmy comic by myself. I had approached a few other artists to draw the comic a few years ago. The first was Dave Contreras, a super-cool Californian. (I think being from Cali automatically makes you cool). He had a comic about a kid with a pet robot I fell in love with, and I knew he would be awesome to work with. I couldn't find that comic online, but here's another great one he did.

Sadly, things with Dave didn't work out, but we're still friends! I'm gonna squeeze some Timmy covers or a pin-up out of him when we get this book published!

So I approached Eric about working on the comic a year or so ago. At first, we came up with some sketches and ideas, but pretty soon Eric's schedule made him unable to keep drawing the Timmy comic. So around this time last year, I decided to make a go of drawing it myself. I asked Eric if he could help me out with design and general advice, which he agreed to.

The result is some of my best work I've ever done. I worked harder on these pages than anything I've ever done. But I know I've still got a lot to learn.
