Crash Bash

Crash MuthaFuckin' Bandicoot!! With added Polar. 
Crash was one of the first games I ever got for my PS1 that I paid for myself as a kid so Naughty Dog will always hold a soft spot in my heart. So many hours of my childhood spent trying to get those goddamn gems in Crash 2, the best of the series in my opinion. The Polar levels were always the ones I went back to to replay over and over again, hence why he was a necessary addition to this piece. :)

Gandalf the White

Not as edgy as Gandalf the Grey but a lot cleaner think it was the Daz sponsorship.

*Insert epic rant in Elvish here*

At the risk of being thrown out of the blog and spat on the streets, I have to admit, Im not really crazy for LOTR. Or for general fantasy, for what matters.

There. I said it.

So, while everybody else was busy drawing elves and dwarves, I was doing the COOLEST thing to ever come out of the movie (which, btw, is WAY better than the book, just to piss you off more): the Nazgul ;)))

Done very quickly, colored even more quickly.

Over and out,

Where would Sam and Frodo be without Gollum? Probably a lot better off in my opinion,
Merry Christmas everyone!

A Smart Post Name Eludes Me: Gimli

Update with added clarity

As dark as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings was you could always rely on Gimli to bring some comic humour to the franchise. John Rhys-Davies portrayal was one of the most underrated things in the franchise as it was always compared to Viggo Mortensen's Aragorn.

Donatello Does Machines

Because it's our first day of the blog being live I decided why not do a second drawing for you guys for stopping by so I present to you the most under appreciated turtle, Donatello.

Leonardo Leads

First post of the week (and the blog overall) so why not start off Turtle Week with the Turtles in-field leader, Leonardo? What's that? You have no reason not to? Awesome!

The Invasion Begins

Hey people of the internet!
If you're reading this you stumble onto our sketch blog and hopefully you'll like what you see in the coming weeks/months/years (delete where necessary). Anyway here at Nerd Invasion we'll be uploading sketches we've done which will range from either pencils, inks or fully finished pieces (if we have the time) based on a theme that the 5 of us decide upon to pander to you guys. The group of would be artists you'll come across here comprised of Chris Duffy, an animation study and comic book writer for Lightning Strike, Paul Kavanagh, another animation student, Luca Pizzari, an amazing comic artist who some of us got the chance to meet at Dublin International Comics Expo and who you can check out here, Padraic Byrne, yet another animation student and Robert Carey, comic artist extraordinaire, editor of Lightning Strike and one of the founding members of SketchPaddys (yet another art blog you guys should check out here).
Starting Monday 17th of December you'll see us unload a boatload of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sketches that we managed to cobble together during the week. Needless to say we all hope you guys like what you see and keep coming back because our egos could use the boost.
