Sketchin It' w/ Ian Walker - Post Show Update!

So... once again, tonight's show was very cool. There were some people that were there a half hour before the show began which was really nice. To have folks there waiting for me to arrive even though I'm such a small fish in the Deviant sea actually meant a lot. So when I went online tonight, I got right to the point. Aen the Artist from Deviant Art won the "You Guess It, You Get It" contest tonight, and it was Red Monika from the Battle Chasers...

Next I did 2 other sketches, one of an 8.5 x 11 colored pic of the Tick, which was tonight's sketch jam, and also another sketch card of Starfire of DC Comics.

So I hope that folks will participate and spread the word about the show. I have always had fun doing it, and tonight is no different. It was a great show tonight. Much better than last week in my opinion. Let me know what you guys think if you see this blog post!

Talk to you later!

Legends & Lore - A You Tube Video

So I did a Legends & Lore Artist Proof as a commission for a client, and I put it up on my You Tube page. Below is the video for the whole thing. In total, the card took me an hour and a half to do, but it is time lapsed so it's really quick. A nice vid, and a nice soundtrack to go behind it. Hope you enjoy, as there will be more coming soon.

Sketchin It w/ Ian Walker on U-Stream

What the!? Yeah that's it. This is the name of my official new U-Stream webshow that I am doing. You amazing people answered the call in two polls that I created on Deviant Art as to whether or not I should do a live webshow. You responded, and now it's happening.

The first episode will air on U-Stream this Friday night at 5:00 PST, or 8:00 EST! I have HUGE plans for this show, and I want everyone to take a part. First off, Sketchin It is a fully interactive show. During the show there will be "Guess who it is Contests", viewer contests, which is a randomly piced viewer watching that night who will get a free drawing, and I will be taking live commissions as well. Right now, I am reserving 2 slots for a $10 Head Sketch. There will be other commission slots available during the show as well. I will be doing commissions for folks that I have already done business with. For instance, I will be doing a sketch card commission for a client live. Hopefully this guy will show up so that he can see it being done!

Also, in regard to the interactive aspect of the show, there is one rule... EVERYONE MUST DRAW WHILE WATCHING ME!!! It's not mandatory exactly, but it makes you a part of the show, which is what I really want. It doesn't matter if you are a great artist, or what you may consider yourself to be a bad artist. I want EVERYONE drawing. Every week during my show, there will be an Art Jam theme. You cannot draw it before the show, and submit it. It has to be done DURING the show. I will be then asking you all to send a note of your deviation related to the Jam. I will then take the deviations, and compile them and create a weekly Jam collague! Now how sweet is that!? I think it's siack. So I hope this will entice ALL of you to join up. Oh yeah... and photographers can take a part in this too. This will mix it up and make it a bit different. Hehe. I have a theme in mind, and when the show begins, I will announce the theme, and you will all have to draw it, and submit the notes to my DA page after the show. This will be EVERY WEEK! So get your pencils ready.

In the future, I hope to have some guests appear and give some critiquing and advice on artwork. Every week i will do at least one or two commissions, or do some White Ninja Guy webcomic work. Whichever I feel like doing is what I will do. So be there guys! I can't wait!!! Friday November 6th 5:00 PST/8:00 EST Where to find it???? Here ---->
I will be sure to put up another journal before the show starts and a daily countdown will begin my friends!!!
