Makin' stuff

I've taken my time, and seen a lot of things. Lots of inspiration from all sorts of places. I think it's about time I got back to creating, and I've got some good stuff in store.

I can't believe it. I just can't believe it. Edd Gould is gone. And just like that, the world is a slightly darker place. Earlier today I was thinking about how people who know others who have suffered from cancer don't find it funny. I wondered if I would ever feel that way. Well, here it is. Edd Gould was an awesome artist who I never saw as much of as I should. Despite him playing a big part of helping me understand that I can animate. He always had such light hearted cartoons, yet so creative. This really hits home to me, and it just kills me that someone so creative and talented had to die at 23. It's really just not fair. He saw his whole life ahead of him as a chance to create, and now... He'll be dearly missed.

It's been a loooong tiem

Well... it sure has been a while. I better start on some new stuff! Though, I have been drawing my hands off, I just haven't been scanning or coloring any of it!

My webcomic OverKill has been eating up all my time and patience! But that doesn't mean I should just let that happen. I'll try and do some other stuff on the side, I've had some other interesting ideas lately.

It's been a loooong tiem


And so, I'm still busy.

Yeah. I feel like I hardly have time to do anything anymore. Been drawing alot. Scanning less. This is both bad and good, because most things I don't scan soon just get lost in a huge pile of things to one day scan and color. And by the time I get around to scanning it, I won't like the way it looks, SO, yeah. Bonk. I'm still doing my webcomic weekly. Updating weekly. The day is unspecified.... Check it out, and tell your friends! It's been going okay... Lately I haven't met with my co-creator to work on it, so, I've just been trying new things.

Trying to come up with new ideas, like demons who support gaming. But, then if I spend all week trying to get creative, on Friday I just sit down and repeat the word fuck to myself, until I draw a mediocre comic. I've been trying to write a comic with a story, one of finer quality. But this hasn't gone too well. Other than that, I bought Dead Space 2 the other day. Collector's Edition. I'll say this: game of the fucking year. But I'm a big fan, so, I can't help but love it.

And other than that, this is the coolest fight scene I've seen in an anime recently, so watch it. Put it on 720 hd, and then go full screen to enjoy this radical chick fight.

And that's all I have to say for now... I'll be updating OverKill, and randomly posting art, but, I'm not really doing anything big now...

List of AWESOME THREADS:
The ol' NewGrounds charm!
I took this thread over WITH PURE WILL.
His name is Teddy... (a 2004 classic!)
Your sex life... through WWE pics!

And so, I'm still busy.


Why must I be so busy?

Well, although I hate being busy, I want to do this comic before I lose the will. I'm pretty pumped, but after I complete the first chapet, who knows where it'll go, or if I'll continute with it. But, I want to do this... I put up the idea pieces, and a promo , check it out! And I'll still be updating my webcomic weekly. Check out my webcomic too. Well, we'll soon see how it turns out...

Working on OverKill

I really enjoy having a webcomic. I really enjoy, just... spending hours on photoshop, and, I just like it. Plain as that. I mean, I AM ComicRetard! I've always really enjoyed the elements that make up comics, and I've read ALL sorts of different comics, with different styles and effects, and utilizing different effects throughout each strip is fun, and from discussing and writing the comics to drawing and coloring them, it's a full on experiance. I can't wait till the day I really start working on flash videos. But for right now, I'm really into this project, and all I really want out of it is to give laughs to my readers. SO many artists have done that for me, and I enjoy the nice visuals and good laughs, I just wanna repay the world that favor. Check out my comic: follow the link to OverKill!

And ALSO, don't forget, my comic wouldn't be anything without my co-creator, Brandon Lopez! Or as he's known on NewGrounds, Jamnth1 ! Check out his NG page for updates on his work/thought/ideas for OverKill!

*EDIT* DOUBLE ALSO: Thank you so much Tom! I'm honored to win second place in the NG pumpkin carving contest of '10! After how last year I just got lucky (which I was thankful for!). It feels good to have gotten an actual place this year. I was suprised ReNaeNae didn't submit a pumpkin this year. But I finally got a TankMan figure (score!) and an NG poster (awesome!) and I feel happy that I got a One Shot comic. I'm really looking forward to reading that.
Till next time! -ComicRetard

AND I'M BACK

2010-11-01 20:51:03 by comicretard

Haha! Miss me? Whaaaat? Well, I've missed you guys! I've taken a nice long break from all existance to work on my webcomic OverKill!!! It's been a good bit of time, and I've been putting alot of unfinished work (which is most of my recent stuff) up on my deviantart page. SO, I'm back, I'm excited for Battle Block theater, I'm in the NG pumpkin contest of 2010, and I can't wait to get back to putting up art on my favorite website!

AND I'M BACK


...And so here I am.

2010-07-27 12:32:44 by comicretard

And so, here I am. Its nearly August... and I have yet to color any of my outlines. I have thousands. I have no idea where to start, and I'll be going on vacation August 17th. I'll be back... whenever. I've been kinda lonely, but I've just been playing that new Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Its so gorgeous, it just fills be with inspiration and artistic will. I've also been reading alot of Penny Arcade, they've made quite the fan out of me. And in other news, if you'd like to see my art weekly, I have a web comic series started by the name of OverKill. Be sure to check it out! (Click here!)
And so, thats all. Maybe I'll stop being lazy soon, but I doubt it. But with the passion of art in my mind, soul, and heart, I will try. -David

...And so here I am.


Artistic Overload.

2010-05-11 20:51:31 by comicretard

I've been drawing so much now, its almost not even funny. But it is funny. Humerous, even. I've been thinking up the best possible jokes i got, and slapping them into a shity comic series. I've done so many doodles, and drawings, and I mean to edited them to put on NewGrounds, but I get side tracked easily. Between school, ad-hd, and my girl friend, and other bull shit, I have barely make time to put up what i do. But thats just something i must over come. I've really been into shadow of the colossus lately, and 50% of the art I've done in the past week has been based of it. I can't wait for last guardian, super meat boy, and battle block theater.

You know, being in love is very distracting, but in my spare stupid time, i've been slowely getting used to flash. I have finally obtained a tablet, and I've done some cool art, but NewGrounds is having some problem to where you can't submit art if you use internet explorer, and I am unable to obtain any other browser. Thus, I must travel to a friend's house to submit art. Lame. I don't know when I'll next submit art, but I intend on participating in the monocrome art collab, so, I hope I at least get that done. But whenever I over come my lazyness, I have tons of half completed art to finish up, so be on the look out for more stuffs from me! (also: egoraptor, awesome job on girl chan 3. brandon, I hope you feel better man. and Maggie, don't stop being furry, but even if you stopped [which i hope you don't] i love you.)

Artistic Overload.


Doodling a road to somewhere...

Why hello there. It is now 2010, and wonderful news arrived to me on January 5th (my birthday, twas the best gift ever). And so, now my art will appear in the art portal. I'll do my best, and only the best of my best. I'm still old school using pencils, pens, and colored pencils. I have my eye on that wacom bamboo fun tablet (thats what its called right?) and so I'll be saving up for that. Until then, keep in mind how I operate. Enjoy my stuff, and while you're at it, check out my thread of doodles. These doodles won't ever be posted in my art gallery, so this is the one exculsive spot on the internet you can see them !
