Krishna Sadasivam

1 Dec

This portrait is based on this picture on Flickr. It is Krishna Sadasivam, the maker of PC Weenies, the web comic for tech enthusiasts.

The drawing was made on regular printing paper with an HB pencil, an eraser, and my finger. After initially creating the drawing, I saw the forehead was too low and had to redraw the upper part of the head.

That is all.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 23

28 Oct

This ink drawing is loosely based on this photo by bitterlemon, made on the Alternative Press Expo 2009.

The drawing is made to support the sale of the collected trade comic book of PC Weenies, a webcomic by Krishna Sadasivam, for Geeks and people who can tolerate them.

Challenged by his fellow comics creators and while he even doesn’t like it, Krishna grows a beard. Read more about it, and how you can support the artist in this post on his blog. Basically, for each copy of the trade comic book “Rebootus Maximus” sold through the website Krishna won’t shave for a day. Let him look like a hobo and freak out his wife, who is currently on family visit for a few months in India.

Process: The drawing was penciled with blue Pentel lead and inked with Faber-Castell brush pens (big the regular and big size). Once scanned, the blue lines were removed (CMYK separation) and the grays of the ink were converted into pure black and white, using Levels.

That is all.

Rebootus Maximus reader appreciation

20 Oct

I’m elated having received the comic book Rebootus Maximus, written, drawn and published by Krishna Sadasivam out of Tampa (FL), USA. It is a comic book for tech enthusiasts, or geeks as we like to refer to ourselves.

The book is chock-full of stand alone and serialized comic strips that have been published over the years (since 1998) on the Web. Not only that, but it contains sketches and notes by the artist, so you can relive part of the creation process. You can clearly see that Krishna loves making this comic. This look behind the scenes is rare for comic books. It is a bit like the well-produced commentaries you get with a special DVD set nowadays, which add value to the viewing experience, more so than if it was just the feature on one disc.

The strip is available on the website. So why would you buy the comic book? Well, first, to support the artist. Making comics is a lot of work and bills have to be paid. But even if you’re not into supporting content creators, second, having a handy book with all kinds of nice touches as a bonus is a priceless possession.

I read Rebootus Maximus…

When I pet my cat
When I pet my cat

When I'm on the can
When I’m on the can

While I'm running
While I’m running

Before I go to sleep
Before I go to sleep

Still not convinced? Well, how about recognition? How many people recognize you as the geek you are? I mean really appreciate the things you appreciate? You get the tech support calls from your friends and family, but they don’t really understand your passion for technology. Krishna, being a geek himself, does, and he expresses it in comics form. Comics which make you laugh, because he has been in the same painful situations you have been.

Anyway, a book still works in those places where you’re not connected to the Internet. So even when your connection goes down, you can still enjoy your geekery, by reading Rebootus Maximus.

That is all.

Dr. Sorta-Evil.

I’m not really evil, but I do have plans to take over the world, hence this masquerade as an evil-doer.

Buy my frickin’ comics. Buy 1 billion copies, so I can play at home with my “lasers”.

Go to PC Weenies dot com and order my comic book Rebootus Maximus. I’ve put all my guts and ten frickin’ years of my life in this project.

I’m not really evil, but just buy my book, or I keep bugging you with bad advertisements.

Beardusmaximus fan art, day 1

The sketch was based on the photo in the blog post. I first made a pencil sketch, inked it with a black Faber-Castell PITT artist’s brush pen, colored the shirt and chain with acrylic paint and colored the rest with Copic markers.

You really should buy a copy of Rebootus Maximus, because Krishna has poored ten years of his live into it and it is very funny. And yes, I have bought it as well.

That is all.
