That’s right, Katie and I will be exhibiting at CTNX this weekend (Friday Nov. 15th-17th). We are going to be at table T15 right in the corner! Please, come by and say hi!
See ya there!
Whoops, I guess I lied…I said this week would be the last week for posting costumes from the contest, but if I do this blog post will be reeeeeeally long. I’ve got it all organized now though, so next week will for sure be the last week of costumes. Sorry if you’ve been waiting to see yours posted!
Fellow Dumm artist John Balsley sent in this Skadi that is both adorable and frightening. You don’t want to mess with this version of Skadi. I love her expression and the ear bite detail!
Armando G. Arias sent in this Foxy Skadi. Foxes are one of my favorite animals so I was confused about whether I was delighted or horrified by this one. Mostly delight, since the drawing is cute and funny. There’s some very creative ideas on how many ways a girl could wear a fox in this drawing!
Here is Bruise Lee’s super creative tribal Skadi get-up! I love this drawing…and the boots from Foulsbury made me especially happy, too.
Douglas sent in this Road Warrior inspired Skadi. I love it when people draw Skadi with these types of proportions…she looks so cute despite wielding that huge gun. Diseasoid’s face is also extra cute and funny to me.
Here’s J Mcmanamy’s submission…those boob plates are nuts! She could murder a man with one hug. With her height they’d probably go right through the eyeballs. I love those huge boots too. A lotta leather would go into making a pair.
Jamaica Dyer sent in this leggy Skadi wearing a bat inspired costume. I like that she’s super composed rather than chasing after the bats to eat them. Look at those little boots too, pretty cute! :D
James Hamilton drew this completely adorable Skadi…this is another example of people drawing Skadi with proportions that are totally adorable to me. It’s cute to see her all dolled up and happy about it. :]
I love this beast armor Skadi by Jason Kenyon…I like that she could run around wreaking havoc pretending to be a minotaur.
Jen Goss tackled a tablet for the first time and was able to produce this beauty: Skadi wearing a Warring Accessories Randomization Technology suit. She even wrote out a story premise for it which was pretty cool! Thanks Jen!
Here is a winter Skadi drawn by Jesse Mullan…I love that he gave Skadi some dignity for once. It’s so rare we see her looking calm and refined. That is one thing I regret about her initial design…Skadi is pretty impervious to the cold, so I never get to dress her up in these types of clothes. I love them though, and I love this design too.
Here’s another example of Skadi looking totally adorable…Josyanne Cloutier sent in a Queen Barbarian Skadi, complete with crowned helmet and bear skin dress. It suits her, though Diseasoid looks a bit unsure about it.
Oh oh oh, I love this one…Marce Martinez sent in this Samurai Skadi, and it’s just the best. So cute. >__<
Lastly, D-Mononoke sent in this nicely designed new outfit for Skadi. I wihs I’d thought to use fur in her original design, I love how it looks on her butt!
That’s it for now…thanks everyone again for sending in your art! I have the best readers.
…and that concludes our three part non-sensical story!!
The last winner is sort of a three way tie, but first I want to mention Wooshra, who actually drew and emailed this image while sitting in class. Skadi would approve! I was so delighted by this drawing when I saw it and new I had to do a costume switch with Skadi and Diseasoid after I saw it. Lookit those legs!! Those toes!! So cute. So here it is, Wooshra’s winning design:
Here are the other two submissions that also inspired today’s comic, first Izak Flash Man’s…
…and Ingo Günther’s cute mix up. Thanks guys!!
Now on to another batch of runner-ups! We’ll start with Arnold Gutierrez, who turned in this amazing Valkyrie Skadi. I almost chose this one because I love it so much. Beautiful work!
Next is Becky Hunt’s Pineapple Maki inspired Skadi. Hooray for you if you get the reference! :D
Cassie Soliday did this creative and cute Skadi from the future!
Thank you Colby for this white knight inspired Skadi!
I love this design from Deanna L…especially the scars across her face. Very warrior-esque!
Here is a cute gothic Skadi from Kiki. I love how she drew Diseasoid…he looks so happy to be bad-ass for once. :]
René Gálvez sent in this re-imagined Skadi outfit…check out that fine backside!
Here is another design I would have loved to have drawn, by Sarah Hoffman. There is something very sweet about this more modest Skadi ensemble. Thank you Sarah!
Lastly, here is a gorgeous redesign from Will Nix. I came very close to choosing this one as well! How adorable is this outfit??
Again, thanks for the submissions everyone! I’ll be posting even more next week. If you are listed here and would like a link to your work, please just email me or contact me on the site and I’ll update as soon as I’m able!
Wow! I’ve got a bunch of stuff to tell y’all about all of a sudden! First of all, I started a podcast with my friend the great Luke Ski called “Kyle and Luke Talk About Toons” which you can get at http://kyleandluke.com or by searching on iTunes!
Finally, all three of us are relevant to this new Scooter Picnic music video made predominantly by Luke! Witness me in puppet form!!!
Crappy news, I’m not going to be attending New York Comic Con later this month. I know I’m missing out on an amazing opportunity to meet new people and spread the word about my comics, but after work, moving, and everything else that’s been going on, a New York vacation would delay my progress on Camp W almost another whole week. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, but I think it’s a necessary one. If you’re going to NYCC, make sure to stop by Maki and Mac’s booths at booths V6 and V7 in Artist Alley and say hello!
Hey guys, I dunno if you’ve heard but I’m starting a new webcomic Called Camp Weedonwantcha later on in the month. You can check out the temp site at campcomic.com, but come October 28th it’ll have all brand new comics and other content. I love working on it so I really hope you’ll check it out!
I’ve been doing tons of crazy freelance recently, and the latest is promotional comics for the new Assassin’s Creed game that’s coming out soon. I feel pretty honored to have had the chance to work with Ubisoft on something like this…it’s actually a bit surreal! Obviously I have my friends at Penny Arcade to thank for helping me get this work. I also owe a more specific thank you to Mike and Jerry who wrote the comics, and an extra thanks for trusting me to illustrate them with total freedom. Anyhow here is the cover, click it to see the first pages! More are being released every other day, and there will be six in all.
OH and if you missed it, I also did a series of Diablo comics for Blizzard last month, also written by Mike and Jerry and drawn by me. Click below to read all five!
I guess I can no longer be afraid of drawing dudes!
Thanks for reading,
