Arial and Helvetica 08 - Bouncy! by TheRealAlpha2
Arial and Helvetica 08 - Bouncy!
Who doesn't want to get in the bouncy castle, honestly?

WHAT!? another Arial & Helvetica? Yeah, it happens occasionally. I noticed a neighbor had set up a tiny little bouncy castle for their toddler (most likely as an Independence day/July 4th treat), and felt both an "aww~" sensation and also felt a tiny bit of jealously despite being a grown(ish) ass man. If you get a chance to go in the bouncy castle, you go in the bouncy castle, kids.

After putting this strip together I looked through my older ones and noticed how much the style changes. Originally I drew them in a sketch book then scanned, inked and lettered them in Photoshop, which took forever and is why they never got past the b&w/gray shading stage, then the last one I inked and lettered in illustrator which I thought was marginally faster but it lost the organic feel entirely, now that I draw and ink directly into the computer it looks so much better, still took forever but I'm happier with the result and this one in particular helped me learn a few new things about Firealpaca... Lettering is a bit of a pain though, since the Bezier curve tool is a bit rough to tame for word balloons. I might continue to still letter in Illustrator.

Raptor-Yoshi
Don't dress raptors up as Yoshi, they hate when you do that! The result of a conversation I had with a friend about Jurassic World and Chris Pratt Riding Raptors like there were Yoshi instead of the motorcycle... :P

Hey! If this is the first time you're seeing this image it means you're not following my Tumblr where I posted this like 2 weeks ago! I post WAAAY more sketches and stuff there: therealalpha2.tumblr.com/

Dogfighting on a Hoverboard by TheRealAlpha2
Dogfighting on a Hoverboard
I had to change the title of my Tumblr, after agonizing over a new original title this came to me in a flash of inspiration to the point that I wanted to depict it visually. I'd Photoshopped a little image to be the background for the page, but I still wanted to try and draw it myself (also I've been trying to practice a bit of digital painting). It's a little rushed, so I'll probably try another version since I like the title so much.

Yeah I guess it was going to happen sooner or later you can go take a look at it now or wait for me to really get into it and check back later. There's only two posts on it right now, an explanation post for how I came up with the title along what I plan to do with it from here on out and the image I just posted here on DA tonight. While that might seem a little redundant, I mostly intend to use the Tumblr for more frequent sketch posts and occasional Signal boosting for things I find online or projects by other friends because I'm not great with twitter and I get the feeling most of my non art related Facebook friends tend to gloss over many of my posts unless I call tag them specifically. This way I have a greater potential of getting random hits and spread my art to a few more eyes. If it looks ugly and broken, please bare with me. I'm new to the Blog thing and haven't touched a bit of HTML in like 10 years or more.

HIAWG warmup by TheRealAlpha2
HIAWG warmup
I started this as a warm up drawing, sketching some of the characters from my comic, to get myself back into the swing of drawing after 4 weeks of grueling Grand Jury duty and not having had much energy left to draw during that time. Somewhere along the way it ended up getting a more detailed and I just went with it.

2 hours, Drawn directly in Firealpaca via Wacom Intuos.
