Patlabor is important to me.

More on that later, because I’m on vacation. For now?

Please enjoy the amazing pre-color linework that Matt Decker of Premium Tattoo laid down for my latest geek tattoo, making it 5 for 5.  NOTE: My arm is curved, so Alphonse’s ear is actually way longer and Noa’s face is not as angular.

My pre-color Patlabor Tattoo - Noa and Alphonse - as done by Matt Decker

Also, I really haven’t been able to find any other Patlabor tattoos online. I may be–as I am almost certain I was with the tattoo below–the first person to have one. No matter what, I now have my two favorite shows represented on each shoulder.

S’up, kids?

Got another Whodorable for you:

Pick it up! Pick it up! My brain fell out of my mouth!

Honestly, I only count The Littlest Cyberman as the other completed one; Daw’vros was just a sketch for a concept I couldn’t get quite right. I’ll be re-approaching him soon.

Can’t guarantee a new Wizard’s Lesson page this week, but I can definitely assure that you’ll get at least one next week, as well as another post.

Oh, also, My Favorite Robot has a new cocktail entry up on her personal blog, Snack the Knife. It’s a good one. Like, seriously, you should read it. We listened to some AWKWARD music for reference….

Somebody tell me a story.

Love,

benjamin

See, here’s the problem.

I really love drawing, but I’m really not that good at it. I really enjoy it, I usually enjoy my end results, but sometimes it’s really frustrating.

I drew this little guy last week, but he was only intended as a preliminary sketch for my small Doctor Who Monsters series. After I drew him, I used tracing methods and freehand methods and none of my follow-ups look as good yet.

It’s very, very difficult for me to do accurate recreations of things when I draw them, whether I’m drawing from an original or freehanding based off of a sketch. There is a strange and fundamental disconnect between my eyes, my brain, and my hand when it comes to replicating things. So be it.

I’ll revisit him later, I’m sure, but for now, please enjoy my sketch version of

DAW’vros,|
or, Kaled is just Dalek Spelled Backwards

 

THE DALEKS WILL BE THE DOMINANT LIFE FORM IN THE ENTIRE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!

See you next week with the first page of my new Fuckbrain Comix.
Lurve,

benjamin

A proper entry about this fella is up on benchilada.net.

Now you’ve done it. Now you’ve gone and fucking done it. Shit.

Welcome to benchiladaland beta.

After about a billionty years of planning this, I finally got it up and running thanks to that most delightful of dames, the fiancee I fancy, Nadja Robot.

Expect the usual Fuckbrain Comix, Inappropriate Comix, and photos, only more better and more often, as well new serialized comics and new writing.

  • Yer gonna get art at least once a week.
  • Yer gonna get at least two entries per week.
  • Yer gonna see archives of old works and new features appear as the site unfolds.
  • Yer gonna check the ribbon to the right for other places that I live on the tubes.
  • Yer gonna click the links and see the rest of Stone Robot Enterprises.
  • Yer gonna get a backache sitting like that.

Some of those may be hopes as opposed to realities. Not the bit about how you’re sitting, though, for the love of fuck.

And now, please to enjoy the first piece of original art up on benchilada.net, also part of a new series:

 

THE 9 1/2TH PLANET,
or, The Lil’est Cyberman:

The Littlest Cyberman

See you sooner than you think, with a comic about copyright and a comic about…just…ugh. You’ll see.

I’m so close I can smell you,

Live from Stone Robot Enterprises

BENCHILADA.NET IS FINALLY UP AND RUNNING, FUCKERS.

I'll be getting it set up to cross-post here directly, but for now, click that link and keep tabs on it.

Please enjoy this piece of art I put up on the site, first in a new series, called THE 9 1/2th PLANET, or, The Lil'est Cyberman:


See you soon.

Love,

benjamin

I just barely managed to snap a photo of the low-budget reshoot of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special here in Champaign-Urbana!!!


Dr Who 50th Anniversary Special low-budget reshoot I saw yesterday.

My new ink made it onto the Geeky Tattoos website.

FUCKING AWESOME.

All Mad Props to Katie Motherfucking Cain.


Yesterday afternoon the oh-so-delightful [info]katetastrophe at No Regrets gave me my first tattoo...

I look kinda like I'm trying not to pee:


Tattoo - Virgin Arm

If I were the kinda person who got scared...


Tattoo - Katie preps her gun

She's got her shit all charted out...

Tattoo - Katie's workspace

Time to get your crayons and your pencils some inking on your stencils:

Tattoo - Stencil in place

IMAGINE A HUNDRED THOUSAND KILLER BEES POKay it wasn't bad at all. Almost kinda nice, actually.

Tattoo - Inking the stencil 2

I love how most tattoo guns look like they were made in shop class.
And look at that batshit smile on her...


Tattoo - Katie doing some inkwork

My body briefly rebels against my brain's decision to be intentionally wounded:

Tattoo - Stencil with smeared ink and blood

And in the end it's pretty fucking badass.
I hope that my geek monkeys have figured it out by now...


Tattoo - Finished Time Lord seal on my shoulder 3

So there you go. That's my new Seal of the Time Lords tattoo.

And yes, it seems that they ARE addictive. I already have several more in planning stages.

Mind you, I'll really have to save up for the back-tattoo of the Monkey King...

Smooches,

Today's Hero A Day is a request by [livejournal.com profile] shadowofsummer :



I am perpetually taking requests for more, thereby guaranteeing that I'll never ever finish them all.

Also, my arm really hurts.

Smooches,

Made this last year, reposting as an illustration of my status as OmniGeek:

Usually don't like these sorts of things, as they're usually just random clips put to music, but this one is rather nicely done.

Also, IT'S GOT MAD-FUCKING-SPOILERS FOR SEASON THREE OF DOCTOR WHO!

There, I warneded...ed you.

"What the devil was that drumming sound, benjamin?"

A bit *SPOILERY* for the penultimate episode of DOCTOR WHO, Season 3, so don't click play if you're not up for that.

If you've not seen the series and probably won't, though, this is still a fun clip. If you're one of those people, watch it. :)

Root beer floats from Monday night's Heroes / Doctor Who viewing party with [livejournal.com profile] sarahsam, [livejournal.com profile] chuckdawg, and Lovely Wife Sara.

About to start drawing your heroes / villains (still accepting requests at that location).

In the mean time, my cat is geeking out:
