Cloptic by chriscopeland Cloptic by chriscopeland
Heya Gang!

Heres Cyclops from DREAMS, i drew this one a while back, but then, i made some textures with some watercolor and oil paints, and made the BG, and then colored him up with some Copic markers, and some white out, threw them into PScs2, and married them, lol.

On another front...

So, i know in the past i have been guilty of saying things like "Been real busy" and "Got a lot going on" but let me be the first to say that i had no idea what any of those phrases have meant...until the past few months of my life.

GOOD LORD!

Just a lot of stuff going on in ALL areas of my life, some good, some bad, but all have been amazing learning tools.

I have been drawing like a madman, but i have no scanner right now, and dont feel like investing in one, but i am getting a Cintiq, so i'll be working more digitally from now on anyway, and then you guys can see EVERYTHING!...or most of it, lol.

PEACE!

are you going to still try and produce this comic? Even though it's suppose to be the X-men, the characters look far enough from them that you could try and get Image to put it out... no?=] I'd love to see this series in print.....

Yeah i got a 12wx a couple months ago and it's changed my life...haha well my drawing life that is. It's so great. I'd recommend buying a smudge guard with it...the thing rocks. You can check out my latest journal for more info on that.

Hope you and your fam had a great Thanksgiving man!

I did a re-design of the Xmen team, its in my gallery. The name of the story is "Xmen:DREAMS". This is Cyclops from the story.

Cool, I like the more urban look that you gave them. Would you ever do any X-villains? An urban Juggernaut would be great to see!

Yeah, my art budget is set in stone, so i have to be selective on what i can buy and when. Right now i can get a good hook up on a Cintiq, or i can get a good scanner printer, but im gonna go with the Cintiq, cause it'll save money on paper....yeah i know i said that kinda weird, lol.
