Sherman does NOT make for good Shark Fin Soup!! D:<

Sherman, what have they done to you buddy!

For the love of all that is holy.....!!! (my anus is bleeding!) Not even CARTOON sharks are safe from this terrible fate that humans have imposed on them!!! D:

This longtime, much loved shark appeared in today's comic as not much more than an undead cadaver that graced the page of The Star. Say it ain't so!! :'(

Painting Concept Design - sketch progress

So I've had this idea for a drawing (and then painting) of the Grim Reaper playing a guitar for like 2 WEEKS and because of needing to get schoolwork done I haven't gotten it out of my head until today! I swear it's like I was having creative constipation for a few weeks wanting to get this idea on paper. x___x

And I finally, FINALLY made it downtown to Midoco and got some canvases last Thursday so I'm gonna start painting this little bugger up on 18x24" ASAP!! XD

"For Friday, February 1, 2008, all Seneca locations will be closed, and all day and evening classes will be cancelled due to inclement weather."

Probably the best note left on my computer by my mom (the second best being "there's a chocolate chip muffin for you in the fridge").

STR100: Assignment #3 -- Comic Book Project

Current roughs I'm working on for Storyboarding. Working off part of a pre-existing script (just like the real comic book artists do it! 8D)

(notes and changes to be made in purple)

Page 1: Captain Taylor's space ship lay burning in a tangled mess on the rugged landscape of a far away planet. Taylor and his second in command Female 2nd Officer Watts cautiously wandered from the crash site.

( - put more plant life in to connect the forest to previous scenes
- put supplies mixed in with the rubble
- spaceship fit inside frame?
- combine 2nd and 3rd middle panels?)

Page 2: A noise echoed from somewhere! The two pilots turned quickly fazer blasters firmly in hand.

'What was that', Taylor exclaimed with fear in his eyes.

'Oh my Gawd.', Watts managed to get out...

(- why are they walking away from the crash site?
- looking for signs of life?
- water and food?
- planetary exploration?)

Page 3: several horrifying creatures crashed out of the trees toward them.

(- make it more obvious that those are trees)

Page 4: The pilots fired their fazer blasters frantically into the attacking aliens with no effect.

'Run for it Watts!', screamed Taylor.
