I changed the muscle structure a little and changed some of the lighting.
I actually don't know whether Von Lehmann is a professional or not. I was just looking up pictures of Batman and I found his. If he isn't a pro, his work is certainly of that caliber. The colored version of this picture, complete with background, is really amazing. He has his own website too, with a lot of other interesting drawings.
Either way, I liked his ink drawing a lot and decided to do a pencil version of it.
Note: I don't have any idea what the plot is or what the characters should look like yet, I'm just guessing and going with stereotypes here - trench coats and fedoras.

Anyway, the game plan is to do a weekly comic that's half about games, and half about the "fictional office life" the authors for the site. It's still currently in the works, but I'm pretty excited about it, and considering how fucking official the Quarter Down site is already (they seriously get a lot of hits) I'm pretty stoked.
Here's the url for Quarter Down:
"Just Thought You Should Know" is a concept created by Ashley Nonaka and Russell Tolentino, the co-editors of the Sports Section for Ka Leo O Hawaii. It's basically an update of what's happening in the UH sports.
Like it? Love it? ... those are your only two choices.

Did you choose who you fell in love with? May Cupid's wrath strike you hard in the rear - and yes, I realize the connotations of that statement. I don't care.
Yes, a painter named Van Gogh. Partly, troubled, partly brilliant, 100% unappreciated. Let's face it, the guy was nuts, but his paintings are completely beautiful.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise...

It wasn't a prediction, but isn't it nice when life works out perfectly so that I can claim that it was?
Yes. The answer is yes.
Also some sort of strange Metal Freeza hybrid elf-reporter shall come into being as well ... apparently.
Do not allow yourselves to be deceived: great minds are skeptical...

Considering all the collective stupidity of our society today (ahem, voting for Bush ... twice) Apple probably will make a profit off of this.
But it really is a slab of nightmarish horror. There are so many things wrong with it that the nightmares seem to keep building, breeding and feeding off of one another until it becomes a self-reproducing nightmare-machine. Let's just start with the concept of the iPad itself. It's too small and meager to compete with or fill-in for a laptop or even a netbook, but it's too bulky, cumbersome and annoying to fill-in for an iPhone or and iPod. So the question becomes, what the hell are we supposed to do with this thing?
Steve Jobs said that he didn't want it to be a laptop replacement or a smart phone replacement, but to be it's own product: free, unfettered, like a bald eagle soaring high over the rocky mountains, riding the warm updrafts before swooping down to take a massive dump on a market that is stuck with either laptops or smart phones, but no inherently useless, expensive product in between. Great Steve, you want to save us from two different, but equally useful products by inventing a third, retarded product and introducing it to a landscape that has no market for it?
If the iPad makes money, and as I said before, it probably will, it'll be on the strength of the Apple name, our society's passion for buying the next useless, but awesome and expensive, gadget and the incredible culture of product brainwashing that has occurred over the past decade. It will not make money because it is a useful, innovative, revolutionary product ... because it's not.
If you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you...
Also, I'd like to point out that the lack of background doesn't mean I was lazy. They're clearly training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber ... okay I was lazy.
