Fanart: The Demon Mages by TheRealAlpha2
Fanart: The Demon Mages
Oh hey, sorry if I've been neglecting you Deviant Art, it's been busy these days.
Here's a fan art I did of :iconcrybringer:'s Characters Tara and Tess
Arial and Helvetica 09 - Thanks For Playing. by TheRealAlpha2
Arial and Helvetica 09 - Thanks For Playing.
Sometimes it's the trophy that counts. I tried posting this to Tumblr first but something weird is going on with the way it displayed, so... new strip! once again drawn in Firealpaca except for the The background, which was an adobe illustrator image from a long time ago when I considered doing A&H as a flash cartoon (so much for THAT idea, huh Youtube?!) I also used Illustrator for the lettering again. It's far more precise and lets me organize where words will be placed as well and makes my word balloons sharp easy to read and uniform.
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 by TheRealAlpha2
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:
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.
