Just some fun

I'm a big fan of the radio show 'The Fresh Drive' on 5FM radio station. The other day they created a spoof of Ben 10 called Sibusiso 7 with South African flair. I pictured the characters in my head and I couldn't stop laughing.
So, I decided to do some quick sketches. Looking at them now they look so stupidly ridiculous but I don't care. It was just for fun and I didn't spend time trying to get perfect designs. I think it should just be about the fun sometimes. A good idea to apply to life in general.

The heroes unite
With the power to cut anything
Infinite toughness
My personal favourite. Eat chip oil you fiend!
You're not getting past this minibus taxi!

I kind of can't remember the rest of the radio spot so I'm not sure of the other powers. I think there's a sangoma in there somewhere. Frikkie also needs his harvester power I know that. Oh well, if I feel like it I might draw them as well.

Reel update

Just a quick update to my showreel for February. I've been battling with my internet connection to try and get a decent quality version up. However the internet doesn't like me and I was only able to upload this slightly shoddy version.
Well, you take what you can get sometimes. Anyway, here is my reel.

swing things.

I decided to try and finish my swinging dude so I can put him in my showreel opening. I don't have a bulk scanner so I unfortunately have to scan in each page one by one. TEDIOUS!
Anyway. Here are two clips. One is  a rough line test and the other is a cleaner version I attempted with photoshop.

Hopefully I can add a background and colour him soonish.

Ben 10 aliens - Four-arms

Another quick sketch I did. colour was done with markers but had to be enhanced in photoshop because my scanner is so bloody awful.

He must be great at opening jars.
