About getting older and looking back...

In order to celebrate my last ten days as "thirty-something", I decided to look back into the history. (Certainly more fun than trying to figure out the future... or what's left of it anyhow... nah, just kidding.) I traced down MY FIRST EVER COMMENT on a internet social network of any kind. It was in, and the date was August 10th 2000.

You can find it here.

Now, the tracing was quite simple actually... I just Googled "Jouniac" and "elephant spunk"

...yes, elephant spunk... it's a long story... oh, for crying out loud, read the comment thread if you're so interested!

Coloring Meelo...

Here's the colored version of the little airbender. I wanted to have an "animated series"-feel to it, so I kept the colors very clear and simple. All and all, I think it turned out quite OK.

Here's also couple of details. I'm especially happy how the leaves turned out.

Hope you like it.

Legend of Korra fan art...

My children (and me too) are huge fans of Avatar - The Last Airbender... the animated series... not the movie.

So, when the sequel, Legend of Korra started airing, I decided to celebrate the occation by making a fan art piece of Meelo, a little airbender boy. The piece is called Meelo Playing with Leaves. Hope you like it...

This was the first sketch I did (on a post-it note)... basically just wanted to nail down an idea that I had. Took me about 30 seconds.

After the kids went to sleep last night, I sat down and did the pencils.

...and here's the cleaned up inks I did today (during my lunch break... no, seriously). I did the inking entirely in photoshop... and that's VERY unusual for me. In fact, I think this was the first time. I'm rather excited about it.

I'll do the colors within few days. So, see you then, eh?

Let's crack open 2012...

To show everyone (all 2-5 subscribers) that this blog (or I, for that matter) is not completely dead: here's a photo(s) of my youngest child Justus. It's titled "Sleepyhead"
