You’re nothing in my world….
Well, fixed the bards face and slapped down a bit of grey to start the fun part off before I go to bed today.

Keep me locked up in your broken mind….
So for this one I’ve decided to do a much cleaner line work than usual.  Just noticed something I could have added but forgot (just right now reading this).  A few things to retouch, but then maybe tomorrow morning after work I’ll start toning.
Holy shit I don’t really have much else to say.  Just a loud night sketching.  Now I’m watching stand up on youtube and thinking of eating something terrible.

It’s oh so playful to demonize….
So I had the overpowering nagging urge to start something I’ve had in the back of my head for a while.  About a year ago our DM put us through a small encounter with just the two of us because no one else made it to the table that night.
I feel that it turned out to be a good idea and a fun night for the three of us.  He had our Tiefling Druid and my bard face off in our sleep with a dream witch.  Suffice it to say we won, and there was some nice swag for us at the end.  I also had the fortune of striking the killing blow on the witch…I was pretty happy with myself for that ;)

I won’t give you any money, I always pay…

Well, another painting come and gone, time for another!!

Wish I had more time in a day/week to do everything that comes into my head.  Time to switch genres I think though.  I’ve been in a very sci-fi mindset for the past while, and that is not helping me with my D&D campaign.  Which I wish I could make time to illustrate a lot of things for my players.

Anyway, here’s the process for my Bounty Hunter in a bar.  Lots of changes a long the way for this one.

Open the door, I’m gonna make you love me…
Told myself I was finishing at least one thing this weekend.  Mission success.  Now, what to finish next, isn’t that always the question.
This ended up being a lot of fun.  A bit of a hassle and frustration in spots (damn cloak!!!), but fun.  Went a lot further with it than I ever planned.
I suppose I envisioned it as something of a cover image for that comic I was working on a while back (something else to finish).  At a certain point the character starts going through all the dives and bars in the city roughing up people for information.  So many fun little stories I can think of for that.  In fact, I think of it as one of the key reasons he gets hired on for the RPG mission this all came from.  He roughed up someones cousin and instead of being mad, appreciated his direct approach.  At least that’s what I envision.
Well it’s time for a break, something mind numbing and restful for the hands.  I think I’ll keep binging on Cowboy Bebop some more and have a drink. ya…noir cartoon bounty hunters and scotch…how can that go wrong?
process gif to come later.

You don’t own us, you don’t belong…
So whenever I have a hard time getting something working right on my American Girls painting, I find myself coming back to this.  Totally didn’t ever plan on bringing it this far.  But hey, its working, I like it, and I think its looking good. 
Just a little bit more and I’ll happily call it done.
Unfortunately one of my distractions from this is what comes up on twitter/tumblr for whats going on in Ferguson.  Holy hell, I almost can’t read any more it just makes me mad.  I hope it drives every other sane person out there mad as well.
Well, off to bed I guess.

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

PLEASE SHARE!!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON.

Plenty of residents videos on Youtube as well.  It’s nuts down there.

Yelling “Don’t shoot my hands are up” is something you should NEVER have to say to a police officer walking down a street or in your back yard.
