Two Hellboys for the Price of One!

And since nobody’s charging an admission fee, that price is free. Free to watch me ink this Hellboy.

I used traditional, brushed ink on watercolor paper, something I’ve been trying to get better at.

But that’s not all — I said two Hellboys and I meant it. In an episode of Ink It or Stink It, Run Red Run also took a shot at inking a Li’l Hellboy drawing I did!

How did she do? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Hope you like it! -v

How To Draw A Cartoon Cat

We move from 3D witch sculpting to 2D cartoon drawing this week. A simple How-To-Draw tutorial that’ll take you through the steps of drawing this cute little cartoon cat.

This is more or less a recreation of a short presentation I did with some girl scouts over a zoom conference troop meeting. I had to do a “how to draw” segment, and this cartoon cat was what I decided to use. I worked digitally (in Clip Studio Paint) but the exercise could be done with pencil on paper as well.

I tried to keep it pretty basic — simple shapes, not too detailed — and if you follow along, yeah, in the end, there should be a cat on the page (or monitor) in front of you. But from that starting point, you can experiment, change, alter, or even forget everything in this lesson, and create a cat that’s personal to you.

It’s a pretty short video, and easy to follow. Hope you have fun! -v
