First time inking and coloring on photoshop……it’s a meh?

Posted in Uncategorized on September 20, 2011 by frankgidlewski

First pass at this, it took forever, and I hate it. So i thought I’d share. I think I’ll stick to inking in illustrator and flash, but i really want to learn how to color better in phtotoshop.

After a battle with the computer… Fisthead fan art is up! This is the loveable little character Fisthead created by my brilliant friend, Sean Glaze (check out his fucking awesome blog here: He made this guy in a little short for school: watch that now to understand why it’s brilliant. Simplicity and violence at it’s finest! Some awesome things are coming Fisthead’s way so be sure to friend him up on facebook and check out Sean’s blog for updates! This isn’t my character I just have a man crush on him, and he’s really fun to draw. Until the next time I’m not lazy my few readers…..


My God I’ve Neglected This!

Posted in Uncategorized on June 16, 2011 by frankgidlewski

Hey to those who maybe read this……I have lots to talk about, but I’m hungry and lazy so I’m just gonna throw this digital painting/illustration I did, up. It’s my two favorite ladies in all of DC comics: HARLEY QUINN AND POISON IVY. I really like the way the angle of Harley’s body turned out. She’s a bit more whacky so i went over the top with her pose, and Ivy is the strong sexy one….even though I don’t draw sexy, moreso cute. Well, enjoy!


Oh…..and things are coming in the future. Promise.




A Doodle And A Digital Painting With a Bad Background!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 18, 2011 by frankgidlewski

Here’s a doodle I did during one of my classes. Most of the time I love the doodles in pen with the sketchy quality more so than a cleaned up drawing. With the rough stuff you feel energy and life. Or maybe it’s just becuase I’m not that great of an artist so it’s easy to lie to myself and say rough=better cause I can’t clean up! Who knows. It’s a mystery really. But, as an old man trapped inside a young body I had to express my opinions on the young people in some of my classes so I took aggression out with Fat Dog. Enjoy the doodle and Digital Painting version!

Happy Late Birthday Dad!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 16, 2011 by frankgidlewski

February 9th was my padre’s birthday! So since I’m a little poor college kid I thought I’d show him what he’s sending me to school for! This is a piece that I’m very proud of, my first time digitally painting on art rage and I see how it works and what I can do to make it better (thanks to Sherm Choen’s blog). But this piece of my two characters Fat Dog and Skinny Dog sort of brought back my love for them and love for cartooning. I hope you enjoy and I hope to put more out there soon!

Some animation links and an Inking

Posted in Uncategorized on January 7, 2011 by frankgidlewski

Just some stuff to throw up here. The bear from last time, just inked, which I think looks a little better, want to go back at some point and rework the color. But for now I like the line work.

And here are some links to some animation I did this year. The lip sync one (the first of the links) might be my favorite and the one I’m most proud of



Old But New

Posted in Uncategorized on January 5, 2011 by frankgidlewski

So things have been super busy, but no one checks this blog out really anyway, soooooooooo, I only feel half guilty for not having given any updates.

In other news, winter break is going on and after some much needed sleep catch up, I think I’m back in the game. Just got a new cintiq and I love it. Now all I do is play with it, I had an old drawing from last year that I did in colored pencil that I really enjoy. I think the face of the bear character is the best. I inked it in digitally and tried for the first time coloring in photoshop. As you can see……it turned out horrid. I’m gonna go back and use a digital painting program and see what happens. For now, enjoy these bad boys (cause they are bad) and once my computer feels like actually letting me upload some animations those will come too.

The one above is colored pencil and digital inking, which turned out to be really cool, I’m thinking of doing some more projects like that. Mixes hands on and digital. I like it. The one below is all digital……not proud of it. I REALLY need to work on color.

Stay tuned for more blogs! Gonna do one about comics soon!
