Planning on MORE Comic Cons

Vanquish Studio hasn’t done a lot of comic cons since 2015. 2019 is the year when I’m thinking of doing the Long Beach Comic Con, Palm Springs, Phoenix (goes without saying since it’s my own back yard), and Tucson. That is a total of four cons which, believe it or not, is a lot! Now, would I like to do more comic conventions, yes, but travelling is very difficult for me. Why? Well, I have a 9 to 5 that I need to worry about as well as other things. Regardless, I will be opening an Etsy shop soon to help people get my stuff when I can’t make it to their city. So stay tuned!!!

More Tutorial Videos

I just barely started getting into my tutorial videos this summer. 2019, however, will be a new start and that means – MORE VIDEOS! I’m currently working on a series of videos to help  anyone wanting to draw in the comic book style art as well as how to draw hands. Everyone, myself included, could always use a little help with hands. I’m also continuing with my sketch series because sketching helps improve drawing immeasurably!

Stay tuned and keep drawing!

More Coloring Pages

A few years back, in 2014, they did a reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. I did a set of the turtles for the 2014 (or maybe it was 2015) movie with Megan Fox and all the comic conventions I went to those subsequent years. I understand that the movie didn’t really do that well which may explain why it took so long to sell these! Sometimes the CGI just can’t overcompensate for a poor story. Anyway, I revived my original inks and made them into a set of, you guessed it, COLORING PAGES!

Redesigning My Business Card

Over the years I’ve had many different business cards. I actually prefer to pass out postcards more than the standard business card because I can showcase my art. I think a business card is too small and it gets lost with all the other ones. A postcard, on the other hand, is much larger and I think people are more likely to NOT lose it! Here is what I’ve designed so far. What do you think?

New How to Draw Hands Video

A lot of people have trouble drawing hands. Unfortunately, the only way to get better at something is to practice. Practice makes better but never perfect. In fact, perfect art doesn’t exist so stop trying to make it! If you really want to improve on your drawing skills, set up a schedule and keep to it. Make sure to draw at least 30 minutes a day. Stop criticizing yourself and just draw!

My new hands video explains how to draw, ink, and color the hand in a clenched position with the thumb up. Check it out!

Happy Thanksgiving Day

This is usually the time when people get together with family and eat so much food it feels like your going to explode! Well, I know a great way to burn off all those calories. DRAW! Okay, I’m kidding, drawing doesn’t really burn off calories but it does make you better at drawing.

Enjoy your holiday and get back to drawing!

New Worksheet!

I did it! I made a worksheet to practice hatching lines. I decided to take a random picture off the Internet to make a worksheet. I was going to make a “My Little Pony” -type horse but I changed my mind. The horse I did make is good for both directional and small hatching. Maybe I’ll make another video showing my own hatching with it. In the mean time. . . PRACTICE HATCHING!
