Dee Block's Butter sketch by Bfetish
Dee Block's Butter sketch

Weekly Drawing Challenge
Dee Block's Butter.

Better late than never I always say . I must say that we need more characters like Butter in comics. Not only so we have more black female characters. Its just Butter is unique.Especially her body type. We usually see thin bodied women with curves.But not many women with shorter proportions that are curvy or borderline BBW( Big Beautiful Women) body types.

My goal with drawing Butter was to emphasize and incorporate Dee's love of women that are thick and curvaceous. Butter is an awesome character that perfectly embodies sex and violence. The Femme Fatale is a classic character archetype and Butter fits it perfectly.I had fun drawing her.After looking at the finish sketch all I could say was "Dayuuum Girl!!"

  • Mood: Sadness
  • Listening to: random shit on my ps3
  • Reading: old 90's comics

       Over the past months I've been getting desperate when it comes to trying to make money.  While Blue Baby Art as a whole is continuing to profit at most cons we go to, I feel I am not making enough money to be able to cover basic necessities and help pay bills. Blue Baby's basic costs to continue sustaining the venture is about a $1000 a year. And this doesn't include the hotel costs,food, and gas. If we sale and make our reachable goals my partner is still taking a financial loss. If we meet or surpass our maximum goal he would barely make a true profit. And I would still be making under $2,000 a year doing this.

  Luis can only do so much financially.And half our success is because he got us this far. A grand a year isn't much if we were both working. Then this venture would only be hobby to keep the creative juices flowing. Because of Luis getting me off my ass and helping get into the fan art scene I feel maybe I can make a ok living doing this. Its very feasible considering that a couple of people acquainted with Blue Baby do pretty well through commission work.An acquaintance I bump into at various cons has raised her game in terms of selling at cons makes on average between $500 to $1500 per show. She is a really good artist though and has lots of product on her table. She also probably gets tables at twice as money cons than we do.


   After discussing things with Luis he finally told me really how far he wants to take Blue Baby. His end game was he never really had a true goal in mind. Other than being able to help me out, cover costs, and just hanging out at cons with friends. There is nothing wrong with that. Except we are no longer  young men and we are financially screwed at this time. My goal is different from his.I want and need to do more. I can only rely and depend on Luis only so much. He pretty much gave me the tools and motivation to take what I do as an artist seriously. I need to see how far I can take this and make it profitable for me.


  I told Luis that I am no longer going to put as much effort in the venture any longer.Because his goal doesn't match my own and he can only do so much as far as pushing Blue Baby as a brand. So with that being said I'm going to seek a "real job" once again. He and  I split the profits of my work 50/50.And for a venture that only averages $80 to $300  that is not very profitable for both parties involved. 


 Upcoming events

     We got 2 shows in February. The Lodi Grape Con and East Bay Comic show. How the rest of 2015 goes with Blue Baby is really up to Luis. I got a handful of projects I'm going to finish and send them off to any colorist that we are acquainted with that is up for commission work. After that whatever happens,happens. I need to make a least a grand a month so I am in full blown hustle mode. I'm lowering my sketch commission prices to what they were before.Because at this point I pretty much don't really care how much money my work is worth as long as I'm getting some money. My work isn't truly that good yet.If it was I would have more than a few people giving me commission work.


So buy 2 sketches and get 1 free. If you see us at cons you can buy 2 prints and get 1 free as well. I'm not gonna stop doing art. Its just I need to put my priorities at getting steady employment or any employment. I would rather be broke and go solo than ruin a friendship. I don't want to financially strap Luis anymore than he already is. I also don't want to strain our friendship. Luis is a real true friend. And you don't find many people like that in your life.

Midora Sketch For Winston Jordan by Bfetish
Midora Sketch For Winston Jordan

Weekly Drawing Challenge
Midora

Troy raised the bar in his drawing of Midora. His work is tough to beat. So I just kept things simple by just making sure I get the details of Midora's costume.And draw her as a beautiful chinese deadly assassin. I liked the character once I saw her design. I have a thing for asian women and that applies to asian female characters.

The sketch is not very clean.It was drawn on some photo copy paper.I apologize for that. I 'll make sure next time I do the character justice with a proper illustration with better tools.
