TARDIS console

Started work on an outline to use for when I draw the TARDIS console for my Doctor Who strip idea. I'll hand draw over the outline but I'd like to have a consistent look so I'm making this "schematic" of it. I'm just doing it in Illustrator. Although I'd love to be able to do it where I could swing it around and see it from various angles as a 3D wire frame.
Anyone know of an affordable program that'd let me do that?

Edit: Second image with additional linework.

Something new is Something OLD

Took my old Hudson easter strip and ran it through the steps I found over on Johnny Crossbones. Pretty cool tutorial. So I thought I'd post the results. I still think I need to tweak the process for when I finally get back to posting new strips. I'll have to make a photshop Actions for this.
Anyway Enjoy.

The Doctor is in

My Doctor Who sketch. It's not The Doctor as we know and love him. More of an alternate version for a WHAT IF.. story I have in mind. The sketch is all kinds of wonky. I'll be reworking it and inking it. Maybe I'll even get to a preview strip or two as well..just for fun.
Below is my new Who logo I whipped up during lunchtime the other day.

A sketch from the Moleskine while watching NCIS. It's my take on the Gibbs character. Plus a bad version of Abbie.
I don't do enough warm ups anymore before sketching. Stuff's getting really rough. Heck I don't sketch enough as it is. That's the problem.

Photo Touch up

Got a photo file sent to me today for a t-shirt design. Unfortunately the poor fellow's head was a wee bit cropped. I went in and touched it up. The background made it easy to clone and adjust. Didn't take much to add to his cranium. It's no photoshop masterpiece... but it works for a posting.

Retro Guy in his Lounge

The retro guy I did a few posts back now has a place to call his lounge. I started popping together a little place for him to be walking in. Finally got around to the last tweaks tonite. I know it's not much but he calls it home.
