If you’re looking for today’s comic page…there is one, I just forgot to get it ready! Been working on a lot of illustration work lately, had to push back my comics work. Trust me when I say it’ll be worth it, I have a lot of neat projects going on right now and can’t wait to show you all the results of my hard work! Look for today’s page to go up tonight/tomorrow at midnight EST!

Sonic Saturdays returns today in celebration of Sonic The Hedgehogs 20th Anniversary celebration! I’ve been re-tweaking and re-tooling the story line I’m going to work with and now I can officially begin posting these full color fan comics each and every Saturday! I sure hope I can keep up with the schedule I’ve set for myself! Thanks to all of you who came to my Birthday Broadcast where I fully colored this piece live on my JTV channel on Sonic’s actuall Birthday of June 23rd! Here’s to another 20 years of the Blue Blur! Happy Birthday Sonic!

Hey all, thanks for swinging by to check out my new post. Sorry…there’s no art…yet. Come back tonight around 7pm EST and click on that link in the side-bar that says “Webcast” for a very special Process Show here at RKDIA COMICS as I celebrate a very special birthday! I have a nearly-complete special piece I’ve been working on that’s going to re-launch a feature I’ve stepped away from for a time. It’s a rebirth of it’s Genesis! Come on by to see what I’m talking about for chatting, some Photoshoppin’ and tons of celebratory music!

Dark Man

Here’s some fan art I did Saturday for Matt Aucoin’s Mega Manthology, a quick pinup piece featuring all 4 Dark Man forms from Mega Man 5! I broke out the G-Nib to ink this piece, which I haven’t used in a while, to get thinner lines much closer to the ones in the original character designs from Capcom. I still like that the G-nib gives me some line weight however.

New Beginnings – Rooftop Lilly

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

Today I begin my new full time job. It’s been a long year of searching and struggling to get by, but now that I’ve gotten my hands on that precious economic security blanket, I’m afraid my time for art and comics will be the thing that pays the price. I obviously won’t have as much time to dedicate to my work as I did since starting at CCS 3 years ago, and ultimately graduating, however I plan on trying my darndest to keep new art spilling forth here at my little corner of the internet!

To celebrate all the newness, here’s a quick colored sketch idea I did for my buddy Ian Struckhoff over at Black Label Comics of his most recent “person-that-lives-in-his-head;” Rooftop Lily. A girl lighter than air!

Sketch Card – Young Link

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

LoZ: Ocarina and Time 3D is on it’s way and even though I don’t own a 3DS, I’m very excited to see this absolute, game-changing classic adventure get a little TLC and updated graphics! I doodled up a Young Link, a kid favorite, with his Kokiri Sword and Shield! Toon Link will be coming up soon I have a feeling! Another card that needs a skin tone, but my default peach was too strong.
