Trdl1604 Zionz by TRDLcomics
Trdl1604 Zionz
TRDL 2016 Series, No. 04 - Zion

This one was done for the TRDL OC Art Trade I've been running for a few years now on dA. This is Zion, a member of The Challengers, as designed by K.E. Woolfork aka Wolfprime. He posted a number of variants on this 'throwaway' character that subsequently grew on him. I selected the final version in his morphology, which you can find below in the process notes. He also did a rad version of TRDL's Emporer's Arrow. Good stuff!

Trdl1603 Hellcatz by TRDLcomics
Trdl1603 Hellcatz
TRDL 2016 Series, No. 03 - Hellcat [Patsy Walker]

This illustration was my first one done entirely on the iPad Pro, using an Apple Pencil and Procreate software. It emulated my normal mixed media process: roughs, pencils, inks, render... all with layers, and in this case, using brushes that mimic physical tools. It was a challenge, but a great warm-up for other projects to follow.

Trdl1602 Marymarvelz by TRDLcomics
Trdl1602 Marymarvelz
TRDL 2016 Series, No. 02 – Mary Marvel [New 52]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Mary Marvel… or Shazam… or the Marvel family? I can’t even anymore. It was last year.

I love drawing Mary marvel and Black Mary for simple, obvious reasons: superheroes with pleated or flowing skirts are fun. Irrational, but fun. I did not, however, warm to the New 52 design for this character. I can’t deal with the boots, the hood is a strange touch, which i normally like but when paired with a cheerleader’s uniform it’s wrong, and frankly, the lines leading to the chest symbol bothered me. Nonetheless, I gave it the old college try.

Tools: Photoshop, Cintiq; iPad Pro, Apple Pencil; Microns, Bristol

Introducing the Robot-Kraken Podcast!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 2, 2016, 12:01 PM


Kris [Deeply Dapper] and I are producing a recurring podcast we call ROBOT-KRAKEN. At this point, they will be released at least monthly but often more frequently. It's a lot of what you would expect from R3 and talking to either of us in person: comics, TV, film, news, reviews, focus on special subjects or dorkery, updates on our con schedules, and so on. To quote the IT Crowd: 'STANDARD NERDS!'

You can access these podcasts a few different ways:

1. My preference is iTunes, if you use iProducts. You can subscribe to the podcast, and automatically download them as they are released (or stream any of them as needed)...
itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/ro…
(If you go this route, please take a moment and provide a rating, so we can get more eyeballs...)

2. We host the podcasts for direct download as well, which you can access here:
deeplydapper.squarespace.com/r…

3. Also, we have a website set up to support Robot-Kraken, which includes news and reviews and updates on the podcasts themselves, merch, and so on:
robot-kraken.com/

4. Finally, if you are a FB user, you can join the Robot-Kraken Group and get updates that way as well.
www.facebook.com/groups/838516…

We hope you give it a try and like what you hear! You can reach us individually or at salty@robot-kraken.com and make requests for reviews and commentary or give us feedback, or yell at us about the time paradox or what have you.

TRDL 2016 Series, No 01 Poe Dameron by TRDLcomics
TRDL 2016 Series, No 01 Poe Dameron
TRDL 2016 Series, No. 01 – Poe Dameron [Star Wars VII – Force Awakens]

The first few TRDL Jam subjects for 2016 have been, not surprisingly if you live on Earth, Star Wars related characters. Everyone’s flush with Force Awakens enthusiasm, many artists, me included, are still working on the #drawwars sketch challenge from December, and frankly, who doesn’t love drawing Star Wars characters? If you don’t, well… anyway, Poe Dameron was the first character I felt compelled to draw, largely because I’ve always loved the orange flight suit look. I toned his hair down a bit from the film, and since I don’t do likenesses particularly, I wouldn’t say there’s much Oscar Issacs in here, but it was fun. More importantly, this was another piece partially inked, and entirely rendered, in Procreate on the iPad Pro, so I’m still working out the kinks in that process. Fun!

I am a designer overall, architect by profession and comic illustrator and concept artist through my own imprint, Third Rail Design Lab.

I also do commission art and design work for collectors and commercial applications. Lastly, I host a weekly art jam that can be found here: :icontrdl-r3-weeklyjam:
