THE BLACK CAT, Part 2, Prelims

Working on drawing another sexy anime Commission of the Black Cat [yeah, this picture will have a slight anime influence]. Here are some prelim pics from the drawing board. Inking hasn't been done yet, these are just the sharp pencils.


The middle combo shot displays some comics from my collection. Those Marvel / DC comics were drawn by Terry Dodson. I draw inspiration from his techniques and use it to improve my own style. Hi works guide me in voluptuous art, and that "cheesecake style" is what I use primarily for drawing ladies like Elena Eden.

The first Black Cat poster is over here: http://dsngsfm.blogspot.com/2011/01/black-cat.html

Following and Surfing through this Sci Fi Blog:

There are lots of interesting articles I've written in the past. Some have complained to me via e-mail about the difficulty of finding my older works, within this blog. Often the Search box at the top left section of the blog Web page isn't enough. So here are two screenshots with tips to solve that dilemma.

First, if you look to the right side of the blog page and scroll downwards, you'll eventually see a Starcraft pic titled "About Me".

Right under it are the Archived blog posts. There are over 50 posts with exclusive artwork from 2010. Just click on the Year, then the Month you desire. Read through the headings before clicking on the one you want.

Next, someone with a PhD sent me an e-mail praising this blog and asking me how to follow it.... [I know him personally, from my undergrad days at Georgia Tech]. Its not that hard, buddy :)

Here are tips on how to do that:

Again, scroll down while looking on the right side of the page. You will see a Facebook portal. Click "Like", and that's it. Now you are following the blog and you'll get all the updates.
You can also follow via a Gmail account, or via the Networked Blogs link. Those two options are shown above the Facebook portal.

Note: Anytime you are lost in the blog and the article seems to end, just head to the very top of the page and click on the bold white words, DSNG'S SCI FI MEGAVERSE; and that will swiftly transfer you to the most recent page.
