Freaky Freddy the 13th!

Today I continue a tradition that I began back when I first launched the blog… which is to create a unique drawing of some kind each Friday the 13th. This year I’m throwing a few things into the mix to create a monster mash-up parody. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Freaky Friday somehow melt together to bring you Freaky Freddy the 13th!

Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees were always at odds with each other, but then one of Freddy’s recent kills leaves him with a cursed ancient talisman that causes Freddy and Jason to swap bodies for 24 hours! It takes Freddy and Jason a bit to find their footing in each other’s skins, but along the way they learn something important about themselves and each other. 🙂

I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out when I began today, but I like where I ended up with it. Initially I had the guys facing each other… but I think it works better back-to-back. Also, it seemed empty until I started filling in the blood spatters. Strangely, I feel like those really help bring the whole image together even though they were very much an afterthought.

Please let me know what you think, and be careful out there today! Also, remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

Deadpool Valentine

So… there’s a Deadpool movie. You probably know about that. It’s also Valentine’s Day tomorrow… You probably knew that too. But what happens if you combine them?

Deadpool Valentine

I wanted to hand-draw something Deadpool related for the movie this weekend… and inspiration struck when I realized it was also Valentine’s Day and I thought of a (hopefully) humorous way to combine them. For anyone wondering, it’s meant to be fairly cartoony. It helps take a bit of the edge off of the implied gore. I also probably couldn’t have hand-drawn a non-cartoony Deadpool without more practice anyway. 😉

I didn’t scan in a rough-sketch image this time, because I kind of alternated between sketching in parts of this and inking them… so, for example, I sketched then inked Deadpool first… then the bow and quiver, and then the doors in the background. I’m not sure why I did it that way, as opposed to a complete rough sketch before beginning inking… but there you go.

Whenever I do something like this, as I’m finishing it I start thinking how it would look cleaner if I digitally inked and colored it instead… but then I wouldn’t have a piece of original art in my hands. I would also lose a little of the organic feel to the lines that I get from hand-rendering. This particular gag wouldn’t suffer either way, but sometimes the too-clean digital rendering actually distracts from the funny. At least it seems like it to me.
