A development drawing for an older, slower Captain Blast. I will need to take another drawing break soon and do some more writing. Soon I hope to share some story!

This is a look at an EARLY drawing with ideas for the Rocket Dreams story. The characters have changed (are still changing) and so has the logo. In fact, most of the design here is downright silly. But, it was a start.

This is far from done, but a look at another color test. I am working to see if I can keep these rough pencils as they are, or do I need to add ink. The answer has not yet been reached.

This is what happens when I get tired, and start to "doodle-wander" in the old sketchbook. I am not sure who in the heck these guys are, but they both scare me a bit.

"They should have known better than to walk through a lunar stone field at night. Before the Captain could turn around to see what Dwight's yelling was about, he already knew. He looked just in time to spot a full grown blorg quad beast snatch his young friend and lift him twenty feet into the air. As he reached for his blaster, a cold tentacle whipped around and knocked him off of his feet. In seconds he was high above the ground with Dwight, wondering how he could have been so stupid."

Here are the boys in color. I am not sold on this style yet, as I might try to ink these up.

Here we have Dwight and the captain watching each other's back. They have had a rough day, and are not messing around.

I have to say that I am really enjoying using the pencils again. It feels good.
I am playing around with colors on this, so hopefully I can share that soon.

Fooling around with a PITT Artist Pen. I do love them so. I don't have a good steady inking hand, but as long as I can keep it rough, I do ok. This is a warm up piece, showing our little robot friend scared to death by a grumpy Blorg.

You know, a Blorg.

More development art. The guns aren't quite working for me, but that is why we do these roughs! On to more drawing!

It is late, and I should be in bed... but instead I am up on the computer posting to a blog. Makes sense to me!

This is my first drawing of Captain Blast. I expect the Captain to change a bit before I decide on a design, but it's always cool to see where these things start. He is a little too "rounded" here, but I do want to keep a cartoony look... hmmm.

More drawing!

Another developmental doodle! More icky brain creatures. These guy are pests, and not very nice.

Sort of like phone solicitors.

As the Rocket Dreams story develops, there are some very interesting characters emerging.
This is a concept for one of the baddies, where he has plugged into a giant robotic suit.
These drawings that you will see in the next few weeks are really rough ideas, and merely
my first attempts at fleshing out a big strange world.

And besides, what is cooler than brain creatures in jars.
I ask you.


It Begins

As it stands, this blog will go forward as the Rocket Dreams production blog.
I am transferring from an existing older blog, so bear with me.

I believe that the switch will make things easier for me, and I think that the new format and image display options will lend to a better overall blog! Yay!

So, let it begin.
Art to follow!
