Commissions and Sketches

Hey all! I've been relatively busy as of late, just sketching around and doing a few commissions. Recently I've been drawing a few of my friends in a Scott Pilgrim style as you might have noticed, so I thought I'd upload them all at once just to give you a gander at what they look like!

My awesome friend Jaime
My girlfriend Dawn

     Love him or hate him, Bryan Lee O'Malley has an awesomely vivid imagination and a great series to match it. If you haven't read Scott Pilgrim, please do yourself the favor of a lifetime and check it out. If you love video games and romantic drama mixed with butt-kicking, it's the series for you.

My crazy friend Hope
Jaime's boyfriend Andrew

     So as you can see, I've been pretty busy with these. I've posted them in the order I drew them just because I feel that even in that short amount of time I've gotten a lot better at it. That isn't to pat myself on the back- more just for my personal satisfaction. I enjoyed doing all of them, but it took me a while to get the style down for sure. So that's about it for the Scott Pilgrim drawings. I thought I'd upload a few sketches I've been doing recently too, just to get em out of my scraps folder.

"Mexican Stand-Off
"Unusual Instrument and SFX"
Random Junk

      So the top two were done for my friend Tait's sketch blog, which can be found here: DRAWSOME. Go check it out some time- Tait uploads a new sketch topic every day, and anyone is free to submit their doodles and what have you. It's pretty great. To the left here is a sketch dump I did a while back. I should really make a new one because I have a ton of stuff in my sketchbook that I need to import. Alas, scanning at my Dad's house is relatively hard and inconvenient, so I only do it if I have to. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this week's drawings. Have a merry Christmas, everyone!

Oh, WoW!

     So I spent most of the day doodling and so fourth, and I decided to color a little sketch I did about a week ago just for practice. My coloring needs a lot of work so any time I spend on it just puts me that much closer to being a pro. The sketch (below) is of Aillith and Rio, two World of Warcraft characters belonging to my girlfriend Dawn and I, respectively. She's a warlock, I'm a hunter, we kill things, etc etc etc. So yeah, I hope you like the drawing! Be sure to leave a comment and tell me what you think about the coloring! I spent about 3 hours on it total.

I'm a nerd, and I really don't care.
     Here are a few screen caps of the actual characters, just so you can see what they look like in comparison. It's always interesting to work from reference, and it was definitely a real challenge to turn the complex character models into cartoons. Note- Dawn's wardrobe changed since I drew the image, so ignore the costume discrepancies.

Rio - Lv 75 Hunter
Aillith - Lv 73 Warlock

Drawings for Friends!

Hey guys! Here's a few things from the past few weeks- some doodles, commissions, and a few sketch dumps. I've found that I really love drawing in crappy erasable pens- you know, the ones that everybody had in like, 6th grade. So here be the arts! Yarr?

+6 to Hufflepuff
      This is a commission I just did of my friend Hope in a Scott Pilgrimy style. She gave me some specs and I drew it up! I've actually been doing a lot of these recently for my girlfriend and my awesome friend Jaime.

      Down below and to the left you'll see a drawing I did for the back cover of my art portfolio that I made in Fish's class. It's me and Dawn on a bench. Also in Scott Pilgrim style, mainly paying a lil tribute to the fact that we both got so obsessed with the series two summers ago when the movie came out. Mainly the soundtrack. Okay, mainly Invaders Must Die by Prodigy. Now that's gonna be stuck in my head all day. Continuing down to the right is a drawing I did for Dawn based on her new found addiction to Minecraft. She's just never going to stop playing, ever, I fear. And if she could stab a creeper I'm sure she would. So thats about it for today. I might upload some more stuff later- just sketches and so fourth. Stay tuned later in the week when I go to the zoo! I love doing life drawings of animals and I'm itching to try out those pens I bought. Santa Barbara has a pretty awesome zoo, so I hope I can do some pretty awesome drawings in turn. Thanks for reading guys! Have a great day.

I'm on a bench!

Bring the (White) Noise

    Just thought I'd upload a few more things tonight before I head to sleep. I got some character designs for two guys that I've written a 75 page script for- hopefully going to start penciling that comic soon for whatever class I can find an excuse to use it in. It's about two white rappers named Nick and Scott. They're pretty fantastic.

     Basically, the apocalypse happens, and it's up to the members of White Noise: the world's foremost white rap group, to stop it. At the helm of the apocalypse is a devious guitarist named Thord, who uses peculiar sound waves to transform people into ruthless flesh-eating, Muse-listening rock zombies. Can he be stopped? Yes. Yes he can be. But not by you. No, by white rappers. That's right.

     Their designs were more or less inspired by Nat Motte and Sean Foreman from 3oh!3. Their music was also a huge drive for me to create the storyline, etc. So expect a lot of wacky antics and crazy nonsensical hyginks to ensue. 'cause that's how it rolls in the White Noise Crew.

     So there you have it. I promise, no more updates today. You've gotten 3 already, what more do you want from me?! Anyways, to those of you from SCAD, have a great rest of the break, and to those of you not from SCAD, go to SCAD, so we can get a bigger budget for the Sequential Department. SIGN UP. NOW.

Pancakes for Yeti

Look at all those pancakes! They could be for you- they could be for Yeti! Who knows! This is a little minicomic I did for Fish's class. I enjoyed it a lot, and I definitely want to do more. Colored in illustrator, actually. Which was like pulling teeth from a horse. But hey, it's done. AND, PANCAKES.

New Things!!!

What? An update? Why how rare! And yet here it is, in all of its obscurity. I get so busy that I forget I even have this blog, but I've decided I should probably maintain it just for professional purposes. So look for more art to be uploaded shortly. Probably later today! Here's just a few of the things I've done recently!

I've really got an orange/blue thing going on here in retrospect. Guess I secretly like sunsets? Not sure. But hey, whatever works. The two bottom drawings are of my girlfriend Dawn. She's pretty awesome, and she asked me to draw her with headphones, a hedgehog, and her puma shoes. Anyways, enjoy these!

An Update!

Holy chizz. I'm sorry I've been absent for so long! I am a terrible person, I know, I know. However, in my absence, I bring you arts!! It's an original, full color 8-page mini comic entitled Dead Man's Hand. However, there's a bit of a catch to this one. It's going to get published! The Anthology it is to be presented in is called Poe Twisted, presented by RedStylo Media. You can find a purchasable .pdf version of my comic at! Here's the cover page!!

<--Dead Man's Hand

Do you FEEL the AWESOME?

                  Battle Mammals-->

Now, you'll notice that across from the Dead Man's Hand cover, there's a copy of my other original 8-pager inspired from my time in Japan, the World (Weston house) -Famous comic BATTLE MAMMALS!It was sold exclusively at Otakon, and now it's going to be sold exclusively online, here at my blog! Now, I know a few of you have asked for copies, and that's awesome! So to make it a little easier on me, if you've asked for one prior to this post, if you could send me a message either on here on on my facebook [HERE] again, I'd be much obliged. I'm not sure how much they'll cost yet- probably around $3.00, which is mainly to cover the cost of shipping. Also, there's a bonus art gallery at the end that was never released online! So huzzah for that!

Well, that's about it for now. Check in a few days for a sketchdump, and as always, keep up with me at my DeviantArt!! Thanks again for reading, and I hope to update more often.!

Battle Mammals!

Well, I took a while to decide what to put up next and I finally realized that I should probably upload my 8 page short comic from the Japan trip; the infamous Battle Mammals! So without further adieu, I present to you, the reader, the most fantastic story ever told, ever. (PS, The pages are in order from left to right, top to bottom)

          So there you have it! Battles! And mammals! And some things that aren't mammals! Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the comic! I know this isn't the best way to upload a multi-page piece of literature, but hey, it's all I got! So yeah, please enjoy, and I hope you liked it!

More Characters

Hello again!! These next two pieces are from the same series, and are of a character named Zane. He's been around in my lineup for a loooong time- I mean, 7th grade long. And I'm almost 22. So he's obviously a character very close to my heart. Zane is a crazy sword-wielding mercenary, the stereotypical anti-hero that used to work for the dark side, etc. So here we go!

I hope you like these! And please, feel free to comment!!!

Dos Mas!

     So I thought I'd put up two more character design turnarounds while I was already on the topic. I love character design, so these kinds of things never really get old for me. That being said, there is ALWAYS room for improvement, so if you have any comments, I'm always open to critique as an artist!

     The first character here is Carmen. Shes the sassy girl type with a massive Spanish guitar (that looks pretty much like mine in real life haha.) The second character pictured is El Toro. He's some kind of evil Mexican warlord. Pretty menacing right? Well, sadly, he's only about 5'7". Still he's built like an ox!

     So there we are! I hope you guys enjoy! I put a lot of work into these. If you like the series so far, stay tuned because there's a LOT more to come, including a two minute ANIMATIC!

Rio Turnaround

So to kick things off, I thought I'd upload something from the series I've been working on the past year or so entitled Rio!. This is a turnaround done of the titular character done for Ray Goto's Character Design class in Spring '10 quarter. This is one of my favorite characters, so he was extraordinarily fun to design. I hope you guys enjoy!

To see more before its uploaded here, go to my DA page!



Welcome everyone to Zero Content! This will hopefully turn into my new portfolio page! My name is Phillip Jacobson; I'm a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and I love drawing comics! So stay tuned for updates, which should be coming soon! Thanks for reading!
