Warforged

This is my D&D character for a campaign that started about early 2011.  His name is Gyros the Warforged Paladin.  Kinda like a robotic Hellboy.  I thank MooseHeartJones for reintroducing the game to me and running some awesome adventures.  He now lives on in Eberron and guest stars in a campaign that I run called Invasion of the Underdark.  My collection of books, dice & tokens have grown and I love it!

Cartoon Block

One of my favorite video blogs to pass by for inspiration is this Cartoon Block by Evan Burse.  He has loads of drawing tutorials to learn from.  He even has a tutorial for Mandy and Chowder.  And he also interviewed master designer Chris Battle.  Check it out here.

Gummi Bears Japanese Intro

The japanese version is just as good.  Oh how I miss thee.  So did Disney make the show based off the candy?  Or is this supposed to be Disney's own property?

Bounty Hunter

After researching color and reference for Bossk, I found out that his outfit is an unmodified military british airplane pilot suit and his rifle is more of a shotgun style blaster.

Keep your drawings centered or you'll end up like this guy. You are super awesome if you know his name.

Dog walk

Height has it's advantages.
As wet as it can be outside getting soaked in the rain and mud, I'd rather put up with that than the spiders that come out in summer.

Big Ball

Topless Macadamia Players.
Giant Creature under the stadium.

Here is a big cutom Pogipal order of party favors for our friend's kid's birthday party.
Each magnet has a party goers name on it. Boys get a robot or train, while girls get a kokeshi doll. We have another craft fair in December. More details soon.

I was tagged by Chris way back. Here are 7 random facts about me:
1). I like japanese candy because the cartoons on them make them taste good.
2). I play Pokemon cards with my wife & she beats me everytime with her Torterra/Beautifly team.
3). I stopped buying big robot toys because I ran out of room, so I buy lots of little gashapon. And I still don't have room for them.
4). I like tactical miniatures games. Heroclix or Warhammer 40k anyone?
5). I play Professor Layton & Scribblenauts.
6). I always wondered how my corgis would sound if they spoke.
7). I wish everyone played miniatures dice games so we can have a big nerdfest.

CHOWDER DRAGONS

Upon request, here are some of my designs from "The Fire Breather" Episode. One of my favorite ones to work on but also one of the heaviest amount of models.


Chowder also finally appeared in comics as part of the Cartoon Network Block Party Comics published by DC. So technically Chowder has become part of the DC universe & can meet Batman. I can imagine him eating all of Batman's utilities.
