And so, it begins...

Obscure Tales #3 is now officially begun.

I will not promise, but will shoot for, one update a week.

OT#3 has not title yet. I have one floating around in my head, but it feels cheesy and may be a giveaway to the ending.

Anyway, here's a watercolor I did back in Dec 1994, one year before art school (can you tell?). It is titled Weirdling Wars #3. Was there a story? Nope. Just a bunch of drawings and paintings with that title.

Listening to while posting: "Zig Zag" by The Hooters (from the album of the same name)

You are off to a good start. He was holding the book upside down. ;)

Does that truck say "FAST" or "FART" on the side? I don't have my reading specs with me so it is tough to tell. Good job with stuff like the shirt/pant folds and the hair cowlicks etc. It puts extra life into the scene.

If that truck says FART on the side, then Arkonbey is officially my new god.

this is funking greatness, man.

It looks like Fart to me too. he he

I like the weirdling wars art too, reminds me of early 80s RPG art except better because its in color.

Arkonbey said...

Snab: It's a book about ambigrams

I was wondering if the shading was overkill

Dr. S: Sorry, you'll have to find another god. It does not say 'FART'

Ah, Lego

Swinebread: Ha! I was channeling Twilight: 2000, perhaps. I still have that game and never, ever ran a campaign. Hey, they should release a new right-wing version of that game: the troops are left behind in the Middle East because the liberals stopped all war funding and they couldn't afford to come home.

Gee, I can't tell you hadn't been to Art School yet...looks good to me! Glad to know Obscure Tales #3 is in the works!

Really, really cool painting! Thanks for sharing! I love those bricks!

Arkonbey said...

LB: You cant? Is that a complement or are you telling me that I wasted four years and many thousands of dollars?;)

Becca: Glad you like it. Those bricks were wicked easy, just a little latex masking fluid!

Swinebread said...

hey I'd play that game.
