Aug 28th, drawing 22..

thought it was time I made up for the recent postings o' poop.. so here's something I'm not embarrased to show (unlike the last post or two)..
btw.. if anyone wants to comment on anything.. even if it's to say 'you suck'.. then speak up mamma-jamma..

(oh.. btw it's after Guy Gerard Noel and the french poster for the killers (A Bout Portant).

Aug 26th, drawing 20..

drew lots tonight.. but.. it was all page 1 again (I know I said I liked it.. but I didn't).. then I washed my hands 47 times and locked and unlocked the front door for 20 mins...

joking about the last two.. but a little OCD over the first page (maybe)..

so here's another 2 min gesture sketch to take your mind off it..

Aug 25th, drawing 19..

didn't draw at all today (first time in weeks) as we got into a litle 3 car fender bender and I just didn't feel like it..

so here's a very old first pass at the main female character from the comic.. who has changed names several times since this was drawn..

Aug 24th, drawing 18...

and guess what.. I redrew panel 1 page 1 for the umpteenth time.. but now I'm happy with it..

had a bit of an epiphany actually.. was trying to learn to do too much at once.. so I thought "how about I just learn to pencil a comic right now and leave the learning of inking, lettering and colouring until later?", "splendid idea" I replied..

so anyway.. will still prob miss my self imposed deadline.. but at least I feel it's more approachable now..

Aug 22nd, drawing 16

not to sound like a whiny bastard but... I hate my stuff... I mean.. would you show this to anyone? particularly an editor? I think I need to go sit in a cave and learn to draw..

Aug 21st, drawing 15

did lots of thumbs for the comic tonight.. so nothing worth posting there...
so I took the 'spanish lady' sketch into painter for more playing.. it's come out looking like I could have done the whole thing in markers (which wasn't really the effect I was going for)..

Aug 20th, drawing 14..

did some more comic stuff today.. in fact, redid page 1.. which is why I'm so behind schedule.. cos I can't get past page 1..
soo.. rather than show you another similar version of a page you've seen twice already.. here's a marker sketch..

Aug 13th drawing 7...

attended an on-line digital painting course today (Rob Ruppel through entertainmentartacademy.com).. it was awesome.. so I played with painter again.. and I was far from awesome.. did several studies.. didn't want to post any.. but..
here's a study from a painting by Robert McGinnis.. the face is awful, but at least I know what I have to work on eh?

Aug 11th, drawing 5..

had to knock this one out before I went to bed as I hadn't drawn all day/eve..
should draw this tired more often.. I quite like this one.. completely done in painter (even the underdrawing)..

Aug 8th, drawing 2

here's some more roughs from the first page of the comic.. and yes.. they're very rough.. but then I don't want to give too much away.. do I?
