26/5000: Birthday Boy

Today I am 26 years old. It feels weird to type that. The title of this post has a 5000 in it because that's the goal I'm setting for myself. Years, you see. I figure I'll have gotten fairly good at art and played through all the games in my Steam library by then. Probably not all because some are not games I'd actually play, but I'd like to play a lot of 'em. Hopefully Kaitlin decides to live to be 5000 with me or I'll be lonely and sad. She is the best wife.

Here's some sketchbook stuff from the last couple days:

(I'm really pumped about the guy with the sword above his head in this next one. I think it's so freakin' cool! I want to do more on it)

I promised you an update on one of the pictures I posted last time. I'm terrified to work on the muscle knife guy (and I'm gonna be honest, I might not come back to it!), but here's an update on that ship (I love a chance to use the "Vehicular Mayhem tag):

I tried something a little different with this one and added a rusty texture I found on Google. I don't know who did it, so if that's your rust, let me know and I'll credit you!

Being 26 isn't that different from being 25. I wonder when I get older?


  1. The ship looks fantastic! But not AS fantastic as that guy with the beard!

    1. Thanks, Thomas. And keep your eyes peeled. I've got another beardy guy coming. I wanted to include him here but there wasn't space among the other characters. Argh!

  2. I agree with Thomas, your ship is pretty freakin cool. I think it's brilliant. I also agree that the bearded man is great too. But what happened to your sailor you did on Sunday? That one was one of my favorite sketches of the week.

    You're cute and I will live 5000 years with you if you ask me to. XOXO!

    1. Oh, there wasn't space for that one with the other characters. His head was on the right and he had a lot of shoulder on the left. I really like the coat and hood he had and I would have hated to lose them, so he'll probably make it into the next post.
