Quick Character Concept

This is a sketch concept I did the other day.  For some reason I was thinking of the characters from Brink and I remember watching the American Ninja finals.  They had some contestants who did free-running and parkour and I thought, hmm they could be street ninjas.  So I figured I would draw some type of concept of what a modern street ninja would look like. I am planning more designs with different looks and styles.  I need to pickup a magazine and see what most people wear when doing parkour and/ or free-running.  I still want to implement the face being covered to hide their identities.  And also figure out how I can blend the traditional ninja attire into it.  And should I still have some type of ninja weaponry?

'Brain-eating amoeba' kills third person

'Brain-eating amoeba' kills third person

So the news have been posting about this Brain Eating Amoeba and has killed about three kids. The sad news about this is that this isn't new to me. I remember when I was younger of a case like this and a kid I new died from this situation. I grew up in a trailer park, hard to believe I know and in the summer times the pond in the middle of the community would get filled up with water from the rain. So naturally on the hot summer days the kids would jump in and splash around and such. Over time and actually when my family moved out the pond was getting to get filled up with garbage and such by the residents. And a kid decided to swim in the pond during one of those hot summer days. And that rare amoeba crawled up his nose and he did shortly after. At least that is what I remember about it. When I was a kid I didn't think much of this or any kinds of rare germs that could kill a person. Hell I was the type of guy that drank water from the hose, but now as I get older I see the dangers in the simplest things. And for some reason I thought it was one of those things that was almost fictional, but after seeing the recent news it made me realize it wasn't. It still is weird but I'm sure this won't be the last time of hear of something like this happening.

I have converted!

I have actually created a Facebook page.  I did my best for so long to not create one, but I found that I needed to get information.  And like any first user I check it on a daily basis and post little bits here and there.  I am still working on trying to create a network for my art and designs. I need to figure out how I can post this to link with my Facebook and blogger site.

This little sketch is one I did the other night. My friend posted a sketch of Michelangelo from the Ninja Turtles so I figured I would draw one of the turtles. But instead of his traditional ninja attire I decided to draw him as a samurai.  I had Samurai Champloo playing in the background and it inspired me.
