Joker Sketch

Joker Sketch, originally uploaded by timlai.

I thought it'd be cool to post pictures of iconic characters drawn in my style. This is a sketch of what the joker would look like in my style. I intend to draw a finished version of this sometime. Feel free to suggest characters that you would like to see in my style.

Tim Lai Sans

Inked Sketches that I Drew Too Big to Scan

Jim/Plasma Pup
Jim/Plasma Pup
I think this is probably the oldest character that I still draw. I created him when I was eight His name is Jim but he has also had various superhero aliases thoughout the years.

Beelzebub and Matt
Beelzebub and Matt
Beelzebub and Matt (Close Up)
These are some of my favorite characters. I'm not going to say much about them but they're from a comedy graphic novel which I plan to realize one day.

Bad Kitteh!!

Bad Kitteh!!, originally uploaded by timlai.

My cat ripped up this comic after I spent hours working on it. It made me pretty frustrated at the time because I was particularly happy with the art in this one and was really looking forward to colouring it. I'd intended to try to tape it back together or redraw it but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Why does my cat seem to have a compulsion to tear up paper?

Okay, I know I said I wouldn't show you any more comics before I launched the official site but I am. However I'm not really sure if I should use this one or not. I created it as the first strip I would post to try to introduce the strip and explain why Andy decides to set up a lemonade stand. I'm not sure if it makes a very good introductory strip anymore though. What do you think? What is the best way to start off a webcomic? Is it better to just launch right into it with a bunch of one-off gags and slowly progress into storylines or is it better to start with storylines from the beginning?
