I have proposed to photoshop.

Hey guys. I have been practicing photoshop, and I have to say, it is a lot of fun. I am messing around a lot and really liking the results. My favorite thing about drawing is the lineart, but this is a fun way to color that, and really mess around, since mistakes can be fixed, things can quickly be radically changed. It's awesome for experimenting.

OK, I had SO much fun doing this one. I have always been super into the idea of Batboys. I don't know what would be better, to be a baseball player, and have a sexy ass batboy at my beck and call, or to be a batboy, and have a front row view of a whole harem of baseball players. And Ohhhhhh man pinstripes and the socks pulled up turn me onnnn.
Also, I had a lot of fun doing the colors to make it a little but old timey, like the dull blues/browns and stuff.
Also, yes, it's supposed to be SUPER gay.

Some drawing for the short period of time that I wanted to draw a background.

I was trying to create a older, browner feel here, and I did it while watching Rio Bravo with John Wayne, (which is just OK) and I was working on browns and dull blues and stuff, but mostly I was figuring out how to subtle-y use textures to make photoshop less sterile looking.

This is a panel I like, so I colored it. I like vertical compositions.

OK, so I have been listening to the Deathly Hallows on tape while drawing, so it was inevitable that I would end up doing some Harry Potter fanart. This is Grindlewald, which you dummies probably don't even remember. It's the dude Dumbledore had a short affair with when he was a kid, but then he turned out to be totally psycho.
I think that this picture is one of my favorites in terms of textures with photoshop. I mean, I learned a lot about it doing this picture.

And last but not least, my 13 year old self possessed me and drew some cheesy line art that I had to color. It's Sirius and Lupin when they were kids. I am basically a pervy old man, cause school uniforms totally turn me on. Also, sweater-vests.
I remember when I read the 3rd book when I was 13, and going "Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay."
