Muscle Study Sketch

Just a quick one for today! I am trying to get better at drawing that crazy mechanism know as the human body! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

The Happiest Place on Earth

I could actually hear the Disneyland fireworks last night as I was drawing this. I have been missing Disneyland something fierce lately so I thought I would do a quick Magic Kingdom sketch. There really is something so magical about Disneyland when you are a kid; and though I still love visiting the park as often as I can, you can never truly and completely capture that same feeling of wonder and amazement as an adult. It is important that we never truly loose our childish sense of adventure. This world is filled with a lot of dark and terrible things, but it is also filled with beautiful things, things that spark the imagination and fill our minds with fascination, brilliance and awe. It is those nice things, those charming and imaginative things that one will always want to remember.

Until next time,
Dave

Random Saturday Sketch

The Curse of Capistrano

When daggers are pointed at innocent hearts
And muskets are ready to fire
When tyrants ride high and govern with fear
As the forces of evil conspire
Then from out of the night a hero must rise
With courage that even a mask won't disguise
They turn to . . . the man called Zorro...

Well I thought I would post something that in my mind kind of goes along with yesterday's post, Zorro! Zorro is by far my favorite fictional character. I have so many fond memories of watching Zorro (played by Duncan Regehr) on the Family Channel. Bob Kane (the creator of Batman) has stated before that Zorro was a huge inspiration to him when he created "The Gotham City Batman". Even George Lucas was in part inspired by Zorro when he created Indiana Jones. So with that being said I leave you today with a sketch of the original caped crusader.

The Lone Ranger Rides Again!!!

A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty "Hi-yo Silver" - the Lone Ranger!

I think that I need to go back and ink this and give it an actual coloring job. Hopefully I will have some time to finish it so that I can have a before and after of this picture on my blog! Alright that's all from me for today.

The Dark Knight

Wow, it has been a loooong time since I last posted anything on here, which is kind of sad because I was doing really well for a while. Oh well "que sera, sera". I am finished with school for the semester and I have had some more free time lately so I thought I would finaly post a new sketch. I am glad that summer break is here, I think that this summer is going to be a good one. I worked so hard the last two semesters that summer break really feels like a well earned reward. That is all from me for today.

"by thy side" (by the way this line is from Mike Wieringo and Todd Dezago's comic called Tellos, I highly recomend it, it is amazing)!
