Anime Weekend Atlanta 2017

Cospaly Video from Beat Down Boogie

Hey El Moochadores! Here’s a quick post to finish off the day. Check out Beat Down Boogies unique coverage of Anime Weekend Atlanta 2017. I got to admit, a lot of the cosplay in the video – I have no idea what it’s from, but that doesn’t mean the costumes aren’t well made, and with a spreckel of stuff I dig. I also posted a smattering of images from the BDB Facebook page. Click the link to see ’em all. So, give it a watch while I go finish a comic about cartoon mice.

Cheers.

5 Tips for Completing Inktober 2017!

Inktober Survival Tips and Daily Drawing Hacks

Hello again, El Moochadores! Yeah, a long hiatus since my last post, but I’ve been working very hard on the next Atomic Tails comic, and my Inktober drawings. Speaking of which…

This is my first time participating in Inktober, and it is a challenge. Since the beginning of the month I’ve found it very hard to get my drawings done. Not having enough time being a huge factor, also not knowing what to draw. So, I feel like a lot of the drawings I’ve been doing are kind of half-assed or just bad. I had some free time this morning, so I thought I would source some tips and hacks for getting my Inktober drawings done. So check out this very informative video from Windy Iris on the youtube. She provides 5 tips for getting through the month, which I do find helpful. At the end of this month I’m hoping to do a post of all my Inktober drawings and any progress.

Cheers!

How To Draw HIPS & WAIST

Drawing Tutorial from Mikey Mega Mega

Hey El Moochadores! I gotta run to work in a second (…well, drive), but I wanted to start posting some of the tutorial stuff I’ve been watching. First up is a video from Manga artist Mikey Mega Mega on the youtube. This tut covers how to draw hips and waist, which is something I’ve always had a problem with. Not just with sexy pin-up girl stuff, but also with my mice characters who are a bit “hippy” too. Anyways, I gotta get going, but enjoy the video and hit the link above to see more of his tutorials.

Cheers.

Atomic Tails #22!!!

The adventures of Chud and Trog Continue!

Hello again, El Moochadores! Yeah, I haven’t been posting a lot lately, but mostly because I’ve been focused on getting the new Atomic Tails comic finished. Comic #22 tells a little bit more about Chud’s plan for a comic book (greatest comic book in the history of the world…). I don’t like patting myself on the back, but there’s some stuff in this strip, I’m kind of proud of. Anyways, check out the new comic below, and after that go check out past comics at the Atomic Tails archice. Also, you can read a little bit about what went into the making of the comic (this is a learning experience too) at Trog’s Blog.
***Explicit Language*** for all you sensitive folks.

Enjoy!

P.S.

Also don’t forget to like/follow Atomic Tails on Facebook,Twitter, and Instagram. Just look up Atomic Tails on which ever one. You’ll know it when you see it.

Dragon Con 2017!

Cosplay Video and photos from Beat Down Boogie!

I gotta admit; Every time I see one of these Beat Down Boogie videos – of cosplayers dancing around, and having fun – I get jealous. I mean; I want to go to Dragon Con! Hang around with a hot Oolas and a Ninja turtles, but no! I gotta go to my crap ass job, and then get groceries and the dry cleaning. Y’know, maybe I’ll go get a camera. Then I’ll travel around the country and take pictures of people dancing around in foam costumes, and pair that up with… 1960’s folk music! Yeah, I’ll be that guy! Screw these kids what with their fancy videos and trippy music! I can do this too!

ehh. No, I can’t. So, just enjoy another video from guys who’s job is way better’n mine, and watch all the cool fun I’ll never get to have. Also, I posted a few images below from the Beat Down Boogie Facebook page, but this is just a small sample. Click the link to see way more.

Cheers.

Ukiyo-e Heroes: Boss Fights

A Kickstarter where modern game parody meets handmade Japanese prints.

Hello again, El Moochadores! It is the (my) weekend, and I have some time to post about cool (nerdy) stuff here on the moo. Actually I’m just taking a break from working on my comic strip. A whole day of cartoon mice and I need see something else to look at… Like kickass, game inspired, wood block prints!

So… the Ukiyo-e Heroes Kickstarter doesn’t need any help from us. This Kickstarter is just a few days old and it has it $38,000.00 over its goal, but the project is so unique that I want to post about it here too. Also, it really reminds me of college and print making classes.

Anyways, currently on Kickstarter there is a new campaign that mixes video game boss fights and traditional Japanese print making. The project, Ukiyo-e, is a continuation of a successful 2012 Kickstarter campaign that featured popular figures from pop culture in the same print style. Created by Jed Henry and Dave Bull, this Kickstarter offers contributors high quality Giclée prints 12″ x 17″ in size (Ōban format) and signed by Jed Henry. Also, “A selection of the designs are available as handmade woodblock prints, measuring 7″ x 9″”. They have a great video that shows the making of these prints, which I have posted below the KS promo video. According to the KS page, these prints are made on the highest quality washi paper. Groovy.

Along with the videos, I’ve posted a few sample images from the KS page to show the quality of work. Check them out and if you’re interested in learning more, or contributing, please click the links above.

Enjoy.

Atomic Tails #21!

Fire. Breathing. Super. Cow.

Okay, El Moochadores! Here’s why I haven’t been posting on here the last week. I was working really hard (in my spare time) to finish the latest Atomic Tails! Check out as one of the main plot points for the entire story arch for Chud and Trog is introduced! I had a lot of fun working on this strip, and thought this may not be the best super-cow illustration, I really like how it turned out.

Anyways, Check out past comic strips at the link above, and I hope you enjoy the hell out of the comic below. Also, go check out Trog’s Blog where I write a little bit about the making of the comic!

Enjoy!

Atomic Tails #20!

Well, for all the stories and videos I’ve been posting on here about sketching and cartooning, here’s yet another attempt at expanding my own illustrative skills. Check out Atomic Tails #20 and enjoy the mouse goodness of it all. Chud and Trog are still trying to hash out Chud’s sharing Trog’s apartment, while something bigger and better begins to take form in the Mouse twin’s little home. I think the extra attention I’m spending on posting about cartooning is starting to pay off a little. Yeah, I’m still a shit cartoonist, but for my part I’m seeing some improvements. Go ahead and check out the strip below or at atomic-tails.com and also check out Trog’s Blog where I write about making the comic strip. Also, don’t forget to go check out Murraybroscreative.com! All of our prints are on sale as we start making room for a new generation of prints, mini-prints, stickers, and buttons!

Enjoy!

Cow #7

We’re getting back to work on the Atomic Moo Comic Book, and I’m about to start doing some of the illustration work for it. Thing is, I’m not the best illustrator and I’m really not use to drawing cows. Which is kind of necessary when your comic book is about a fire breathing super cow. So, to get ready for the new Atomic Moo comic, I’m going to draw 100 cows. Okay, 100 cows before Halloween. To keep on track with this I’ll be posting the next 93 cows here on the Moo. I mean, I kind of have to.

3D Origami Snake

Okay El Moochadores, I thought I’d kick the day off with some really cool geek creativity. I need some motivation, and nothing for that like “moo-post’n”.

As some of you already know, we (the brethren moo) love paper craft. In fact we have our own -papercrafty- Atomic Moo related project currently underway, but more of that later. So, I came across this on the Deviant Art (yeah, while browsing for weird porn…) and this is incredible! Check out the 3D Origami Snake by Deviant Artist Catstrosity. According to his DA page it took Catstrosity (aka: Kevin from Israel) 2 years to successfully make this and it has 7625 pieces. The entire snake stands about 60 centimeters high. Unreal.

I’ve posted a few other samples of Catstrostiy’s work below, but hit the DA link above to see more of his photo and papercraft work.

Cheers!
