Hourly Comics Day 2009!

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

I draw comics even while I'm out on the town nowadays...So I participated in this year’s Hourly Comic Day (along with tons of other people) and it was a lot of fun! My hourly comics can be seen here (please comment!).

It was really tough for me – I’m not good at drawing myself (not as a hedgehog) and Mike, drawing backgrounds, having legible handwriting, or drawing quickly and sporadically, and of course HCD needed all of that!! Not to mention I am sure no one is good at drawing while on vehicles, which I also had to do several times. But still, I had an eventful day, and I still (somehow) managed to keep up with it. So I’m proud for that. What do you guys think?

Be sure to also check out some of the others on there, there were so many extremely talented people who did comics that I was really surprised! I don’t know how people managed to do all that they did and STILL draw amazing or funny comics. It’s a lot harder than it looks!! Some notable other webcomickers who did this are – Kncomics (from Of Snakes and Apples), Jamie Baldwin (from Sudden Valley), and Kory Bingaman (from Skin Deep). Did I miss anyone?

Bryan Lee O’Malley Thank You!

So check out this amazing fanart that Bryan Lee O’Malley did for me! Jk… It totally wasn’t a fanart at all, but an art request for Bryan Lee O’Malley, the illustrious creator/author/artist of the famed Scott Pilgrim series. Even though it was the end of a looong day for him, he still took my request to draw someone with a hedgehog in my sketchbook!! And, comparing notes with my lil hedgebutt Freya, he did a really good job! Thanks Bryan, and apologies for the weird request!! :D

A Fanart from Prindville!

Friday, February 6th, 2009

Another beautiful and super cute fanart, this time for the very awesome Prindville for his Saturday Scribbles! I always liked Prindville’s innocent and original inking style that’s nostalgic and unique. If you too like his art, please also check out his current comics Hello With Cheese and Broken Muzzle!

Auilix’s Win a Date with Reginald Contest Entry!

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

Oh mai! Check out my entry to Nedroid’s “Win a Date with Reginald” contest!! I totally threw Mike out of a panel in the first strip. It’s kind of like defenestrating him, only with panels, not windows.

Click on the image below to see the big picture:

What do you think doods? This was my first time using brush pens and bristol board!! It was really a lot of fun. I was trying to break my habit of taking ten years to do each panel… From concept to finish, I would guess this took probably 3-4 hours. I enjoyed trying out the bristol board, and the ink brush was fun too (although it was a fake one – just a micron with a brush tip, not an acutal brush). In terms of topic, this was a lot more off the wall than what I usually do, cause this time, it’s all made up! Which is always fun to do, and take a short break from my real-life type comics.

I hope I win. I’m a big fan of Nedroid’s little robot dude!
