An ink drawing a day for the month of October. A challenge started by http://mrjakeparker.com/ a few years ago to improve his art. Let's hope it does the same thing to mine because I've always been a terrible inker.
So after a drought of posts, prepare for an onslaught.
I was giving script notes all day yesterday but I managed to try some color before that. I learned that my digital brushes are so good that I can muddy them up just like real paint. However, I can erase the worse parts of that. I'm still in the coloring book, stay in the lines stage of painting but an overall color adjustment made this a little more cohesive than it was originally. I might try some colored lines instead of black.
I also have to decide on what Clawd's wings look like.
I recently put aside my philosophical objections about the subscription model instead of a flat price and subscribed to Adobe Photoshop. And to get the most from my new digital experiment I ordered a pack of awesome brushes from KyleBrush.com . Now if I was an actual painter I'd really be excited.
But the ink pens alone are awesome. And pencils that look like pencils and even watercolors!
I was never satisfied with my design for the lead of my scifi pitch. Instead of tightening up I went looser to communicate the idea that it's not necessarily a final design. This kid feels better to me than the blonde mop top. Actually, it's closer to where he started years ago.
In accordance with my new commitment to posting art here rather than Facebook, I present the above. I don't feel I should include all sorts of keywords and tags when I do this. Let people stumble upon my old pal.
Meanwhile, I have two projects I wish to develop. One, pitching a studio a show with the characters they already own. The other, my own project to pitch to Amazon or just for myself as a possible web comic (by which I mean a comic book property that I assume no one would publish so I'll slip it online.) Instead of doing either, I drew the above.
