Swim War 02
Yet more antebellum fan art for Fred Perry's Gold Digger.

The apocalyptic level water gun battle wages on. Now risen to even more ridiculous levels by Ace.

I wanted to ramp this up to a climactic satellite strike, but at that point even my own prodigious suspension of disbelief began to show signs of wear. 
Swim War 01
More antebellum fan art for Fred Perry's Gold Digger.

I'm sorry that I can't find everything to this sequence. Basically a squirt gun battle is raging between the Diggers sisters, and Brianna  has chosen to escalate conflict in her own signature style.
Skippy Sketches 02
Some more sketches, or rather a protean page of pencils, featuring my favorite character in Fred Perry's  voluminous Gold Digger pantheon, Skippy Von Richthofen

Keen eyed viewers will notice that I posted an earlier version of the final panel, posted elsewhere in my gallery, under the title Missing Missiles.

In this version, I added the vectored thrust exhaust, as well as the obligatory, anime inspired speed lines. (And yet I still didn't correct that oddly angled nose cone. :icononionfailplz:)

Side Note: I used the Su-35 Terminator as Skippy's jet because I've seen it referred to elsewhere as a "tri-wing" due to its unique combination of a forward canard, in addition to a main wing, and a movable tail. I figure this qualifies it as a perfect vehicle for the the descendant of the Red Baron. ;p 
Skippy Sketches 01
Here are some random sketches and a thunbnail I did, featuring my favorite character in Fred Perry's voluminous Gold Digger pantheon, Skippy Von Richthofen.

Inktober: Stardate 1610.31
Coming full circle with my final Inktober entry.

The U.S.S. Enterprise, no bloody "A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "I", and ESPECIALLY NOT "J"!!!

Have you seen the "J"? It looks all spindly and weird. Yuck!

Anyway, enjoy the pic.

John out. ;)

Thanks to a fortuitous tip from a good friend, I was made aware that Otakon 2017, has just started accepting hotel reservations, as of 12:00 noon EST. I got a room in the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, which is a convenient 0.3 ,miles from the convention center. This is quite a step up from the mile I had to walk between the BCC, and the Hyatt Place Baltimore/Inner Harbor. (I probably shouldn't complain too much about the walk, since the 5 miles a day I've been walking pretty much trained me for the trek :iconherotimeplz:)

I'd advise folks planing to attend next year jump on the link ASAP. The hotel connected to the actual con center disappeared in the time it took me to refresh the page!!!! 

Looking forward to seeing everyone. :)

FYI, I'm probably going to fave half your gallery.  Chibi starships, squee!  They'd also make great tattoos...and there goes, my brain just went to warp. Captain Picard La (Anything Trek + Anime = Extremely Relevant to My Interests)

Chibi starship tattoo's?

That's just adorable.
allucia Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2017  Professional Writer
I've wanted to sleeve my arm forever in Trek (backpiece isn't finished yet though...) but since my arms are on the thin, lanky, side, I don't think photorealistic starships would be the way to go.  These would be PERFECT...just as soon as I have some money...and finish the backpiece. :D

Do you take commissions? I didn't see any journal entries titled such.
JohnStaton Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2017  Professional Traditional Artist
Not at this time. After looking at my old unfinished comic projects, I've been impressed with the need to get back into the habit of drawing regularly. I'm a little scared right now to take on commissions for the immediate future, lest I leave someone hanging.

I'll definitely post a journal if and when i change my mind.
