I’m still around, just have been busy. Here’s a selection of some sketches I’ve done. I’ve also made several logos, a typeface and completed a majority of the remaining commissions in my queue.

NEW AGE OF BREAKFAST
June 09, 2006
Vector art created with Adobe Illustrator

I found the source AI for this old chestnut, so I’m finally uploading it at a higher resolution. I made this thing for practice years ago. If I remember correctly, I finally learned how to make good use of the pathfinder tool and the Offset path effect when making this. It was a long time ago; I’m lucky I still had the file laying around in the first place.

Recent sketches, including sketches of @pen-bee ‘s Darklord Grandma cast! Most of my recent work has been training work, as usual, but I have recently been doing many therapeutic drawings for myself.

I haven’t been able to thank everyone personally for all the nice birthday wishes you guys gave me, but seriously, thank you so much! I usually don’t get much free time to be social, so it means a lot to me.

I’ve been training to overcome some of my drawing issues. Illustrations are still very difficult for me, but I’m getting to a more comfortable place. Thanks so much for sticking with me through all this! For practice, I drew these initial model sheets of two of my characters, Princess Sophia and Anthem, and one character belonging to @pen-bee! I’m trying to get better at illustrating so I can finally clear up my commission backlog.

It’s my birthday today! I haven’t been around for quite a while – I’ve been training as an artist and working many more hours than usual to make ends meet, etc. I don’t take the opportunity to rest or relax very often, so it was nice to give it a shot today. A lot of you have sent me birthday wishes, and I wanted to thank you all for it here!

What I drew during today’s stream. 100 hands, 100 feet, 100 figures. Been trying to keep up this pace every day, and so far have been successful for almost two months straight. I usually keep these posts confined to streak.club, but for some reason the site won’t load for me tonight.

Monsters!!
2007 - 2009
Illustrations created with Manga Studio 4 + Photoshop
Work created for a cancelled project

Project Accordionman’s monsters were a huge collaborative effort from artists I knew and artists online. We were lucky enough to get monster designs from great artists such as @cubewatermelon, @its-sageroot, @nosdoog and tons, tons more. By the end of the project’s cancellation, there were more than 200 enemy designs around! I would then work with the designs that fit and make illustrations and the like of them. The designs here were all internal - I never got to make updated art of all the submissions!

Salchicha (Interactive Language Tutor)
August 30, 2013
Vector Character Sheet created with Adobe Illustrator
Work created for an Art Jam

Is it a vicious weapon re-purposed as a teaching tool, a teaching tool re-purposed as a weapon or something entirely worse? Somewhere along the line its absent minded creator seems to have forgotten.

Salchicha robots tend to attack in large packs, though they don’t seem to socialize amongst themselves much.

Before attacking, a Salchicha always warns its victim/student with a gentle “¡Peligro!”.

Salchicha was actually a minor boss character for Project Accordionman!

BLK MLK (Pronounced “Black Milk”)
2004 - 2008
Pixel Art created with Graphics Gale
Work created for a cancelled project

Here are some unfinished sprite sets I worked on for Project Accordionman before the project was cancelled. BLK MLK was the most difficult of the three characters to work on - his original design only had a head and kind of an amorphous body, so I designed this body for him. The briefcase made things exceptionally difficult, since I did not have any formal training in perspective, pixel art, anatomy or drawing at the time I was working on this project. I never finished his run cycles, so these represent where I was with them before the project was canceled.

BLK MLK is not my character. He belonged to one of my collaborators from the beginning of this project, Quyen! I’ve never posted most of these anywhere before.

Heyew
2004 - 2008
Pixel Art created with Graphics Gale
Work created for a cancelled project

These are the 8 directional run cycle and standing sprite sets I worked on for Project Accordionman before the project was cancelled. Working on this game was a bit of a trial by fire for me that had a significant impact on my health, but it also taught me valuable skills that formed the fundamentals of my current works. Heyew isn’t my character - he belongs to one of my collaborators at the time - Jim! I’m still pretty happy with how the tentacle flick animates!

Rabid the Radioactive Birthday Bunny
2004 - 2008
Pixel Art created with Graphics Gale
15 colors used
Work created for a cancelled project

These are the 8 directional run cycle and standing sprite sets I worked on for Project Accordionman before the project was cancelled. These run cycles were very laborious for me back then - I attempted this set around 13 different times over the years before arriving at this set, since I neither knew how to animate from that many angles nor attempt pixel art of such a scale before these. Project Accordionman was a learning experience.

Team Rabid
Jan 26th, 2007 
Vector Character Art created with Adobe Illustrator
Work created for a cancelled project

This was one of many Illustrations I worked on for Project Accordionman before the project was cancelled. From left to right, these characters are BLK MLK, Heyew, and Rabid the Radioactive Birthday Bunny. Project Accordionman was a comedic RPG that I worked on in high school with a small team. Working in this project is how I learned and honed my pixel art, Animation, Illustration and Game Development skills.

This was the final logo used for Project Accordionman before the project was cancelled. Project Accordionman was a comedic RPG that I worked on in high school with a small team. Working in this project is how I learned and honed my pixel art, Animation, Illustration and Game Development skills.

Consolidating Blogs

Hello everyone! I will now be moving over some artworks that were located on my old artwork tumblr here and deleting @blkmktartwork, then possibly renaming this one – I am no longer posting work there. If you want to see my art, follow me here, @theblkmkt!

I will keep the reblogging quick so I don’t wreck everyone’s dashboard. See you then!

Most of the work I’ve been doing lately has been training work done on a big newsprint pad or digital sketches, mostly life drawing sessions. I’ve been doing 100 hands, 100 feet and 100 figures daily for about a month now – hands are slowly getting easier to draw!

I ended up seeing one of those creepy beauty pageant shows for the little kids once and those things are scary! With the level of aggression I see from the parents in those, I halfway expect the children to physically fight each other along with the other parents.

Apologies for my absence, everyone. I have been away and disconnected for a while, beyond my streak club uploads. I am here once again.

I like the way some of today’s hand sessions went! I was fairly productive today - got 100 figures done, 100 hands and around 50 feet. These are a selection of some of the hands + feet studies I’ve done today.

Here are a few of the things I drew in Sketchable today, on and off stream. The bottom two are progress pictures for a commission I have owed @its-sageroot for a very long time now – I can’t post the NSFW bits of it here.
