jakeparker With Inktober and Rocket Raccoon all going down in the same month I had forgotten that I also drew a Spider-Man comic that's out today!
Here's a couple of my favorite panels wherein Spidey dodges the attacks of a samurai Venom. Written by @skottieyoung #spiderman #spiderverse

jakeparker Drawn about 30 years apart.
After I drew the Robotech robot I remembered I had an old Robotech drawing I did from memory when I was 7 or 8 years old. #robotech
I also found an old Voltron drawing I did, so I'll have to do one of those when I get a minute.

jakeparker I loved Robotech as a kid. In my mind the Veritech fighter was hands down the greatest robot design. Ever.
30+ years later it still holds up as one of the best. And I'm still waiting for the day the USAF announces a new mass-produced variable fighter mech.

Brush pen with copic markers and colored pencil. #macross #veritech #robotech

jakeparker Today I'm speaking to a bunch of people at UVU all about the 5 addictions of successful creatives, how to market yourself online, and for a good portion of the day I’ll be drawing and showing my process.

If you can't make it, no problem. I've asked the students to post their notes and insights online and hashtag it #jakeparkeruvu

So follow that hashtag and it's almost like you're here!

That should answer the question about if the black is water or land.

jakeparker Rocket, all alone on his birthday. :( Check it out, I'm drawing comics for Marvel! My first issue of Rocket Raccoon comes out on Weds. Story by @SkottieYoung with colors by Jean-Francois Beaulieu. Try and get to a comic shop and pick up a copy, because this is a pretty fine comic we made. One of the best. No, it's THE best comic ever made. I stand by that.

jakeparker Inktober Day 31!

We made it! This month always goes by sooooo fast. As I write this there's over 460,000 #Inktober posts on instagram alone. That's just...I can't even...it's incredible. I hope everyone got something out of this month. I hope you're a better artist than when you started on the 1st. I hope something changed for you, and I hope to see you do it again next year!!! On the Balderben front, I'm still putting this book together. Don't want to rush it and make something inferior. I'll let you know soon when pre-orders go up. I'll also keep posting Balderben pages about once a week. Thanks to everyone who loved this crazy story and for all the great feedback. You guys are awesome.

And lastly, today's Pigma pen giveaway winner is: @joeymcc! He did a character everyday and they're so fun. Check him out! Go to @SakuraofAmerica to see the rest of the winners as the month progresses. #pigmainktober Joey, email me through my contact page on mrjakeparker.com and I'll tell you how to redeem your prize.

  •   slime_monster_studios @jakeparker are Tombow marker a good excuse for copic markers I'm twelve and I can't really afford them but I have been using tombows and I don't no if I'm missing out on anything or if I totally am 3w
  •   jakeparker @slime_monster_studios tombos are fine to start out with, but you'll notice a huge difference when you draw with a copic. I'd start by saving up for 3 Copics to start out with: a light gray, modicum gray, and a dark gray. Use those for value and pop in some color with your tombos. 3w

jakeparker We are in the FINAL DAYS of Inktober 2014!

Some have dropped out along the way, some are still with us, and to everyone who's tried, I salute you! It hasn't been easy, and that's the point. If you want to get better at something, it's going to be hard. We've got 5 days left people, whether you've only done one inktober drawing or 27 of them, get to that drawing board and rock it!
YOU CAN DO IT! #inktober

jakeparker Inktober Day 26!
END OF PART ONE

I'm realizing this story is way bigger than what I had planned, so I'm breaking it up in parts. Part I will be collected in a 64 page book and for the rest of the week I'll be posting some of the extra pages that are going into it. Later in the week you'll be able to pre-order the book and if you want one of the original pages they'll be up for sale too!

Today's Pigma pen giveaway winner is: @steverolston! Check out his collection of Inktober portraits. Nice stuff! Go to @SakuraofAmerica to see the rest of the winners as the month progresses. #pigmainktober Steve, email me through my contact page on mrjakeparker.com and I'll tell you how to redeem your prize.
