More work sketches.

There are more, but I do not quite feel like fighting The Scanner once again. All of my willpower has been drained by a tiny hole in my climbing shoe. How could that be you ask? Well, attempt to climb with a hole in your shoe and you shall gain wisdom. Also horrible gnarly agony, but apparently wisdom isn’t free.

After many setbacks, including work, photoshop demons and terrible typography, it is done. I have discovered that it’s really hard to finish something when you only get to work on it 15 minutes at a time.

EDIT: Alright, screw it, I can’t figure out how to work this dashboard thing to fill the whole width, so I cut up the image into panels. Full image is here (apparently even the chunks are being resized. Oh tumblr, you so cray cray).

So I think the Protomen are pretty cool.

I’d like to do more of these at some point, because there’s just too many neat scenes like this. Well, in my head anyway, because it turns out there’s an actual description of how the scene goes and it is nothing like this. Bloops. Also I may have drawn the incorrect robot, but that’s okay, naked robots all look alike, right?

And yes, I firmly believe that the good doctor had spiky hair when he was young(er). It was his goth phase, which wasn’t that different from most people’s, except his also included building robotic super men. I’m willing to bet the robots also had spiky hair, and he only added the helmets later when he realized that metal spiky hair is a serious hazard for eyeballs everywhere.

That’s the last batch of work sketches that have been scanned. Fear not, my job still involves lots of very large files that load very slowly.

More will come. In fact, there’s already another batch that needs to be scanned, but I will put that off as much as possible because I suspect the scanner sneaks into my room at night and steals my blood. I assume blood magic is how it gets all the drawings into the computer, which would explain why the scans are so terrible and also why I am out of blood. 

This drawing within a drawing is taking an awfully long time.
Pro tip kids: Having drawings inside drawings is a terrible idea.

So I am failing miserably at inktober, but technically I have been inktobering every day for years, so really I am not failing at all, and in fact I have succeeded at inktober so hard that I do it even when it’s not The Greatest Month (known by the unfaithful as “october”).

There will hopefully be some proper inktobering soon.

Yes it is terrible, but it was terrible ink before bed or no ink before bed, and inktober does not forgive.

Sketch dump part two.

Yep, my computer at work is still slow.

Also how do I stop tumblr from embiggening embedded images. Tumblr. Stahp.

My job is boring.

How boring? Well. There’s about three more posts like this, and that’s only the stuff I had the energy to scan.

There’s a lot more that is going unscanned because I believe my scanner is a soul sucking vampire that steals a bit of my very being every time I use it.

And yet I still do.

For you interwebs.

Always for you.

You should totes click on his things. Click on all his things. This may involve breaking into his house and finding all the things, but trust me, these things are worth clicking.

The real reason I’m posting bits and bobs of this thing is that I fear photoshop will once again place a Curse upon it despite now having 17 different versions of it.

At least with these I’ll be able to reassemble it, sliding puzzle style.

Marvel at my continued contempt for the line tool.
