Click the image to view a larger version. Not much to say today, other than that I absolutely love drawing action sequences. My favorite thing to draw is perspective, but there's something in the movement and dynamics of a good fight that just makes them fun to draw.

Comic: "Things you expect"
http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1280

Having chosen the “AHT” gkyph, meaning death, the arrangement then says “DARK DEITIES, DEATH MACHINE, CONTROLLED BY BLOOD”.

Whatever that means, once it is assembled the statue on top of the archway springs into motion and attacks the party. It’s missing the head and its left arm but that doesn’t stop it from taking a couple of powerful swings. After missing a couple of times, hitting nothing but rocks, it becomes clear that the guardian is blind (not having a head might have something to do with it) – but its still hitting with tremendous force and should be considered extremely dangerous.

Swinging around, it focuses his attention on Dwarf and gets ready to attack again.

What should Dwarf do?

Commission: “Relative Worlds- The Skybolt” – finished!

This commission was fascinating to work on, because I had never really worked with spaceships before in such a serious manner. Relative Worlds is a series of hard sci-fi audiodramas, and the image of the space ship “Skybolt” was requested to look as if it were a logical progression of our current space ships, just way into the future.

Looking for references I actually learned a lot about what the future of space travel might be like, and the possibilities are really quite fascinating. In the end, I just wish we start putting more effort into it.

But anyway, the Skybolt main feature are the huge wheels located on each end, which are warp drives. For local travel, it has solar sails which can I designed based on flower petals, that can open and close and also change position more maximum efficiency. The ship has both a an enormous cargo hold and living quarters, both separated and on opposite ends of the vessel. In the middle is where all the stuff like the deck and such are located.

I really enjoyed this commission, and you’re going to see more work to come from Relative Worlds like character and creature design, scenery and more ships!

As always, you can see the process over at the website: http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1271

Comic: "The Puzzle"

Today's comic page ends with a puzzle, and you can help solve it by voting on the website. Also, I'd love to read your speculation on what the puzzle means or why you chose whatever glyph you voted for!

http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1237

Don't forget that you can help support the comic through Patreon, right here! http://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151 We've got a lot of cool stuff there this week, but I'll make a separate post about it later today.
Click image to view a larger version. As Lizzie explains about how she and Raven first met, the group reaches the bottom of the stairs, where there is a heavy metal door. It's not certain where this door might lead to, but Elf seems to believe a series of glyphs that are found next to it are ...

Starting every single day with some sketching to warm up is a great idea, and it also serves as a good moment to brush up on whatever area you need to practice o reinforce. 

In this case, a quick sketch of a "generic human male head", in pencil.

Comic: The Lusus Mansion Adventure - Pg. 22
“AHT means Death”
http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1276

So it’s been two weeks, but last time we were here, the majority of you all chose the “AHT” glyph, which meant death.

Now, there’s a logic to this, but it’s explained in our next page. For now, have some HAMMER. It’s that time.

If you’d like to see what’s going to happen in the comic since the beginning of the week, or if you’d like to see the process of how each page is made, step by step along with some insights into my thought process, then perhaps you’d like to consider our Patreon? It’s right here… just sayin’. http://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151

This week I talk a bit about how I adjust and check my values in my artwork, and show some samples of how the process goes.

Good hunting;

ARTBARF! - Daily Sketching
One before bed. I'm aiming to give my anatomy drawing a more "classic" feel. And then experiment a bit with everything else.

Original post on website: http://www.theministryofabnormality.com/?p=1215

I consider today’s image to be quite “experimental” in several ways.

First of all, as the characters transition from one place to another, the passage through this staircase somehow helps mark that transition.
Second, if this story had chapters, this image would sort of mark the ending of the first chapter.
Third, it’s a rather different image in terms of coloring and lighting. I’ve used dramatic lighting in this comic story from the beginning, but with this one I’m trying to take it a step further.
And fourth, it’s a splash page.

All-in-all, I’m happy with it. I hope you like it too. Feel free to comment.

On the Patreon page we’ve got not only the larger version of this comic, but I’ve also posted a version without text because… well because why not? The sketches and scans of this comic have been posted there throughout the week, too. Check it out, here: http://www.patreon.com/user?u=405151

For now, that’s all!
