WarmUp Sketches

I started doing these another day.
I am finding it difficult to get myself into the working mood these days and I found it useful to just get doodling whatever when I sit in front of my cintiq in the morning. it gets me in the place where I need to be and the world starts making sense again.
Downside is that, at some point, I have to stop sketching these and get to a real work, the kind that pays the bills and takes care of my many habits.
After finishing "Vessel", a weird sense of depression sunk in. I was working on something that was really consuming and rewarding and once it was all wrapped up, there was an empty pit somewhere within and I had nothing to fill it with.
So, to fix it, I got me some more mercenary work. It did not make me completely happy initially but at least it put me in a familiar mental state, the one I know how to deal with.
And the work got more fun the more I do it, and now, it is an Ideal situation. I can do pretty much whatever I want within the given format and as much or as little as I want every day.
So now, I could say I am happy with where I am.
Here are the sketches and I will be sharing more of these as I go.

Cheers to all,

The Works!

This time it is a bunch of sketches with t-shirt designs in mind.
Some of them are more rough than the others and a few are as finished as I would like the end result to be.
Comments and likes would be encouraged for this lot, as I am pretty detached from the world and have no idea what is going on out there.
Last (and not related) news I heard is that there is some gigantous planet called Nibiru on it's way to us, bringing some intergalactic overlords back to regain their rightful ownership over our little spinning rock and to claim the genes they generously spiced over some monkeys back in the day when they were digging for gold and stuff.
And those silly Mayans declaring this one the last of years :)
As if.
But then, this is probably old news for most people, it is just that I learned of it recently and amused myself by hitting some websites and checking the facts.
Man, it would suck to be one of those future tellers,throwing out dates and numbers like there is no tomorrow and then transforming themselves into complete douches when none of their predictions come true.
Then, they have to go back to the drawing board, recalculate their numbers and revisit their alien snitches, only so they can come back and become even bigger douche another day.
And How about that Diablo?!
Not that I have played it, but I have seen my children on that day wake up earlier than ever, run off in an unknown direction and return with like 8 copies of the game, with spares just in case they spill milk on some of them and are unable to play the fucker.
And ever since, the only sounds I heard around the house for a while were hack and slash and grunts and stuff.
And final verdict I heard from them is that the game is a short and shallow and that something called HON (whatever the fuck that is) is much more fun to play. Apparently, the only reason they bought all the copies was the peer pressure- the world has told them that if they do not install it, connect to the internet and wait for 2 days to access the servers and then have a stab at being lame barbarian hacking some undead zombies, they are nothing and will loose their right to reproduce in the coming years.
And I also watched some documentary about Apple becoming a religious cult and a gathering of morons sleeping on the street so they can be the first to run into the brand new store after some weird ritual performed by a bunch of geeky Apple employees and purchase some slick equipment they could have bought in any other store down the road a day earlier and save themselves from having to sleep in the open.
Eh.
Sometimes I wish those Mayans were right.
And I also just realized that I may have potentially offended 3 pretty large and fairly fanatic groups of people with my rambling.
So I would like to use this last sentence to apologize to all of the 2012 doomsday hopefuls, Blizzard fan-boys and Apple addicts.
I mock because I love :)
And that's all for now,

Cheers to all,

MIlenko

Finally!


Eh finally got to doing this one :)
I wated to do it for a long time but neither had the time nor was in a mood to get started.
And now, 3 hours later, it is as wrapped up as it will ever be.
Anyhow, not much else this time,

Cheers to all,

Weird


Time flies by these days, that is for sure.
I feel really weird, sitting in the limbo, between jobs.
It has never been like this before and weirdly enough, I think I got used to it.
So I started fiddling and enjoying life as it is.
And funny enough, I am much less bitter than usual.
I am catching up on my favorite little TV gems ( I have discovered "Running Wilde" and thouroghly enjoyed last season of Eastbound and down, and am definitely getting my weekly fixes of Game of the thrones)
I do not feel much urge to draw, so I don't.
Also, Mick, thank you for your kind e-mail, and sorry for not replying to it, I am horrible at those things :)
I got a book form a friend long gone (to Cambodia) another day. It blew my mind.
It is weirdest, most beautiful thing I have seen in a long while, called 
And even though I rarely promote anything on this blog here (not because my principles would not let me, but rather because I do not think average visitor here gives any crap- those few that stop by are looking for something else I think) This book is worth a shout, because it sucks you in and blows you away.
Anyhow, beyond that, I feel pretty lame all together, so I will stop here and share a bit more of my fudgy mediocre doodles :)
One was for fun, and another one is along the lines of some funky t-shirt designs.

Cheers,

MIlenko
