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.

If you are currently working on (or have produced) an independent comic, film, game, or music that has a strong nerd/geek vibe: Let us know! I’m always looking for cool “geek-creative stuff to post about” here on the Moo, and learning about your project would really help me out – and save me a lot of time searching the internet!

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.

New Atomic Tails!!!

A.T. 19 is now online!!!

Okay El Moochadores, I’m trying to get out the door for SDCC 2017, but I just finished Atomic Tails #19! Which is way more important. Check out the strip below, or you can go check it out, with past comics, at the A.T. Archive! Also check out my Atomic Tails Blog (Trog’s Blog) to learn a little about the making of the comic. After all, this is one big learning experience.

Enjoy!

New Atomic Tails!!!

Check out AT #18 You Mouse Love’n Fuggers!!!

Okay El Moochadores, I’ve got another addition to my ongoing experiment to learn cartooning and comics! Check out Atomic Tails #18 below. Though I feel bad it took so long to get this strip out, I actually had fun drawing a “Goldfinger” mouse and a barrel fire. Also, no unintentional penises in this strip. The ottoman penis in #17 was totally not planned and kind of embarrassing. As all unintentional ottoman penis should be. Seriously, it kind of tails you how bad an artist you are when you have to watch yourself for not accidentally adding a hidden penis to your work. #17 really taught me a lot…

Anyways, check out the new comic below and go check out the previous comics (now mostly penis free) in the Atomic Tails Archive. Also, I do keep an Atomic Tails blog where you can read a little bit about the making of the comic. I would mention the Patreon, but I haven’t had time to create new art for it or set up any awards for contributors. Though I am working on it! Gimme money! I draw mice and sometimes dick! Accidentally.

Enjoy!

Atomic Tails #17!!!

They’re all mice! Everyone get’s to be a mouse!

Hey El Moochadores, I just finished a new Atomic Tails! Yeah, kind of weird for a guy in his forties to slopply drawing a comic about mice, but fuck it. I’m having fun and learning a lot in the process. You can read all about this comics strips creation on my offical Atomic Tails blog or Trog’s Blog. heh.

Also, I launched a Patreon for Atomic Tails. I am scary broke right now and I need help paying for the site. Right now there’s only a dollar donation offer (which get’s you our sincerest thanks!) but were working on some improved rewards and offers for anyone interested in helping out.

Look to the right and you’ll see the first Atomic Tails ad too! Both Chudd and I worked on this one, and I kind of dig the results.

I posted the new comic strip below, but also go check out the comics archive to see more comics and my progress in making it. Well, I hope there is progress… On to strip #18!

Cheers!

Seven Steps to Great Character Design

Cool Cartoon Brew Article Featuring Aaron Blaise

Hello El Moochadores! Today I wanted to share a video about character design I found on Cartoon Brew, featuring veteran animator Aaron Blaise. I’m not going to spoil the article here (cartoon brew wrote it, you should read it there…), but both the article and video provide some pretty useful knowledge for those of us starting out in cartooning and animation. Not that I plan to do anything in animation, but I’m putting a lot more time into Atomic Tails and the Atomic Moo Comic Book. Finding web based resources like this video are a big help, especially since I have to struggle to find time to work on my comics. Also, when I started Atomic Tails, I honestly didn’t think of a lot of this stuff. I kind of just started drawing in what I hoped would look like a “Looney Tune-esq” style, and hoped it would evolve from there. I’m hoping that by studying this video and applying Blaise’s steps, I’ll improve the look of my characters. Also, Blaise is an incredible artist and it was just kind of cool watching him draw polar bears.

Anyways, I posted the video below, but click the link above to read the full article and gain more insight into the seven step process. I’m actually putting some of this into practice and hopefully later this week I’ll be able to post some of my results. ‘gonna draw a lot mice.

Enjoy!

New Atomic Tails!

Strip #15 is online!

Yeah, I’m actually (kind of) following through on something. Anyways, check out the continuing adventures of Chudd and Trog in this weeks Atomic Tails! Also, some news about the strip: This last week I started a Facebook page and an Instagram for Atomic Tails. However, I have no idea how to link to the Instagram on here, but until I do, please look me on there and follow the strip! I am not internet savy, but thank you very much to all the people who have followed Atomic Tails just in the last week.

Anyways, I’m setting a goal to get strip 16 done by Saturday… so back to work.

Check out strip 15 below!

Cheers!

New Atomic Tails!

Okay El Moochadores, I just finished another strip for Atomic Tails! Check out #14 and the introduction of Buttery Wholesomeness. Based on the same Buttery Wholesomeness who occasionally helps out with the blog and podcast. The real life Buttery is much more a cartoon character. Anyways, more strips are coming soon.

Enjoy.

BATUPDATE – WHERE IS BATMETAL?!

batmetal

and some Atomic Moo updates too…

Oi El Moochadores! Once again I gotta apologize for the lack of post and overall moo-activity, but my computer is withering away and works only intermittently. However, I’ll have some new stuff up on the MBC site soon as well as a new Atomic Tails strip this week. Oh, and a new Moocast is just about ready to go. So, yeah, I’ve been busy. Now, enough about all that let’s get into a proper post now!

So… yeah. Hell of a week, huh? Now we should point out that we don’t talk about politics on Atomic Moo. We’re a creative website and podcast mostly geared towards geeks, and pop culture junkies, but it is weird to wake up one morning and find out that the real world version of Lex Luthor will have all the access to the most powerful nuclear arsenal a true super villain could ever want. Just a little weird. That sort of weird that leaves a person a little shaken and (yeah) worried. Plus, all the craziness going on around the world because of this… fucking bizarre happening.batmetal_returns_-_large_1024x1024

To get over this weird feeling, I’ve decided to post about something that makes me happy, and that thing would be Batmetal by ArhyBES! They recently (a week ago) released a new update video, and I also found a video featuring Tenacious D as ninja turtles! Turns out, there may be a new Batmetal video next year. Yeah, we need it now. Dudes, seriously. Right fucking now. Arhybes get that shit done now!!! Anyways, along with the update and the JACK BLACK MUTANT NINJA TURTLES video I also posted a couple of other Batmetal videos. It helps. A lot. One last thing, please support Batmetal by buying a t-shirt at Sharkrobot.com. These shirts look awesome and they keep the fun-don’t let me think about politics-videos a happening. Please go buy.

Enjoy. While we still can.

WoWCraft!

WoWCraft

Hey El Moochadores! This has been out for awhile now, but I just recently came across WoWCraft by Carbot Animation. I think I’ve mentioned a few times on the blog that I enjoy playing World of Warcarft, when I can. I’m a fan, and I enjoy seeing fan created stuff for the game. These animated shorts are brilliant and they do an amazing job of parodying actual WoW game play. I’ve posted the first three episodes below, but hit the link to see much more of the series.

Enjoy!
