The Pencil Pushing Area — One Man's Work-in-Progress

Oldies but Goodies pt.1 – cartoony

Posted in articles, the works by R.L. Bertulfo on July 10, 2009

I was rummaging thru my old files at home yesterday from some old boxes containing comics/books and old things of mine such a beat up old notebook full of crap imaginings and some loose papers of still crappy drawing that I did way back 1994 to 1999 or somewhere in between those times. I was planning on getting rid of them but going over them brought back good amusing memories, its like a treasure chest so I decided to scan the ones that I liked for kicks and somehow preserve them digitally for some reason that eludes me now. Posterity, I guess.

I did a couple of cartoony drawings that was used as a patch up to some unsightly place in our bathroom’s wall or door for that matter and this is what I came up with:

I like drawing pigs now and it was evident then, excuse the poor scans on this one’s, I only managed to clean out the second image, the first one is next to impossible for me for I am not that good with PS, the papers are all very yellowy because these drawings were very much exposed. If there is a PS technique that you guys can show me a link, I’d love to know. 🙂

Then this here is the Maxx, which I terribly like and all things Kieth as stated from some previous post somewhere in this blog.

One thing I remembered with this here pieces is that I get to color them using the Prang Watercolors that bud Elton gave me then, tnx dude! Its a rare thing for me to color something even today. I am not good (and I am not good with anything mind you) at blending approriate colors here and there. Someday. For now I’ll stick with the trusty pen and ink.

Next post (WTF! there’s more?!groans!..bored/eyes rollover/etc.) would be some horrid (and still horrid now) sketches I did way back, like friggin time machine back. For now, tah-tah. Sleepy as sleepy as can be.


This post is a self imposed tag meme because this guy here beat me to it 🙂 but I’m gonna post it anyways .
