I'm Stray, or Jeff if you want to get familiar. I'm an artist, music maker, aspiring writer, goofball, geek, nerd, and dork. I design graphics for t-shirts for money.

This blog is mainly for my own artwork. I also make daily confessions and daily music posts.

Art posted in my blog is mine unless otherwise noted.

As a long time MST3K fan this bit of fanfiction has always been in my brain.

had this idea for a t-shirt for a long time and finally getting around to it.
Any MST3K fans following me?

WIP thing for my comedian friend Ify. He’s a comic book nerd so what better way to honor him than by doing an homage to the most infamous comic book artist of all times?
Will be adding a thousand more pouches and some straps and guns and swords  and more muscles.

eyyyyy you want to pay me to draw somethin? Cause I am definitely into that.

Yo. More commissions please.

Still paying off this vet bill. Need $150 by the 20th, so still doin commissions (whilst finishing the last couple I have).

Yo, FYI, you can get this design on a shirt, or a phone case. Going to be making some of my other designs available as phone cases too shortly. So if that’s a thing you are into… cool.

Just been working on this little by little every day, trying to make it look less not good.

Was just going through my art folder and saw these process jpegs of this piece and thought it’d maybe make a good gif. This probably isn’t all that educational, but if you’re curious I’ll talk about each step in the gif…

1) a sketch, it’s simple but I tried a lot of different poses and drew and erased and redrew a lot before I arrived at this. Goin for a casual fashion pose.

2) thought the glasses looked dumb and ditched them, refined the sketch

3) tweaked the expression and added detail

4) flat colors

5) okay I did a lot here and it’s too convoluted to break down, haha, gradients, textures, overlays, shading, etc. Typically my coloring process is a little loosey goosey if I’m being honest. I experiment a lot and try different things and see what clicks.

6) little bit of color adjustment, and I added a simple background, and some probably not great typography.

and that’s all she wrote!

Oh, before I forget, this character is my take on Redmond J Fox in my own style http://redmondjfox.tumblr.com/
