Batman Beyond Villain Ken

Okay so to compensate for my self-emasculation yesterday, here's a buffed up version of me, based on this freeze-frame of a villain in a Batman Beyond episode.

I colored it in Photoshop after scanning in the line art.

Æon Ken

I finally got around to Netflixing the early 90s MTV animated series Æon Flux. It's awesome! It's the most "holy crap how did I not see this until now" show since Freaks and Geeks. Minimalist, avant-garde science fiction that tosses aside everything non-essential and just focuses on one interesting idea each episode. It also features show creator Peter Chung's distinctive character design. Here are the distinctive opening credits.

I decided to do a self portrait in its style, basing the design mostly on this freeze-frame.

Update: Okay, here's a less effete self-portrait I did the next day. :P

Air Doodles

I doodled my friends on my flights to and from LA (to see Depeche Mode). The likenesses aren't that great, but I did them pretty quickly, the first and third ones in about half an hour each. This is the first time I've ever tried drawing portraits from life!


The next one is a mini-doodle that I started in the hotel and finished up on the plane ride home (with no reference!):


I like drawing hair. Facial proportions are still hard, but that's why I need more practice.
