Oooh, shiny



The Storyboard - 018 by RickGriffin
The Storyboard - 018

Dogmen universe. One I haven't touched on much because I hadn't settled on a look that would be appropriate for the setting. It took me two days to settle on something I could work from.

If you've seen anything I've drawn FOR this universe you might know it has a horror focus. Yet I'm still absurdly interested in how characters deal with and rely on each other in those kinds of crises.

I do have a lot to say on the nature of dark thoughts, though I don't know if I should get into it; suffice to say, I think exploring darkness is necessary. Not for its own sake, but because digging in and facing terrible things helps us think more clearly about them later. It's not for everyone. But it's worth dipping your toes into.

Also if you've seen any previous pictures of Arthur, he's been vastly redesigned, as his old design was basically a precursor to Charli, who I ended up drawing more, so she owns that look now.

Ear Nom by RickGriffin
Ear Nom
Pit Fighters, Logan and Paris

Paris: . . . Logan, it's just medical gel
Logan: Well what's the point then?! *storms off*

Tried a few different coloring approaches to this picture just to see what I could do. I haven't done, for instance, thin linework in a long time, though I would probably still need a better way to approach it.

If I decided to post (not-pornographic) nudity, what would you think? Example: 

836 deviants said Awesome, go for it
258 deviants said I guess it's fine but I don't have an opinion
41 deviants said I'd be severely disappointed, I thought you were better than that
38 deviants said This is a bad road to go down, you'll be snorting cocaine off hookers' abdomens before you know it
36 deviants said I'd be disappointed, but things change so okay
24 deviants said I crave lusty bodies and will probably bug you to make my fetishes manifest/attempt to RP with your characters in-comment
23 deviants said There's no such thing as non-pornographic nudity
10 deviants said I have no idea what this means help

Hey Rick!! Big fan of your work but I would like to know the prices for a commision or request like a simple picture but no color. I would like to know if it was free or how much it would cost.

Hey Rick, I am huge fan of your work, and a huge fan of DC comics. I am currently writing a series of superhero origin stories, and your character Marrow gave me an idea. So I was wondering if you could give me Marrow's height and weight, then we will be all set.

I haven't super definitively set everyone's height/weight yet, but Marrow is probably somewhere around 6' 10" and 500 lbs (mostly muscle)

I finally figured out what state your nude characters could hang out in and not get arrested.  Apparently, in the state of Kansas, it is perfectly legal to walk around naked in public as long as you are not trying to solicit sex while doing so.

Yes, I know your characters are in their own universes, but I think having them hang around in Topeka or Kansas City (well, the part that is in Kansas) would make things interesting.
