Decided to experiment with working on Mi-Teintes coloured pastel card today. White Art Spectrum ink, Black Koh-I-Noor ink, Schminke watercolours.
This weekend I represented Squishface Studio at the Melbourne Supanova Pop Culture Expo.
Did this commission piece while I was there. It’s of Lucifer from the DC comics universe (Sandman and other Vertigo titles). Also Dave and I sold out of the comics we were selling which was a nice feeling.
Thank you to everyone [...]
Really enjoyed doing the old school drip nib style rendering for this, even though I was actually doing it with an artline.
Kicked things off with some Bruce Timm influenced Batman. Some of the girls didn’t want to draw Batman though, so we did have a ninja, a dancing girl and a dragon man in the same pose.
Out of the three pages of sketches I recently did of Joe, mostly ones from memory rather than reference, this one “felt” the most like what I image Joe to be like. That said, the photo I’ve provided here doesn’t really have the same mood, but visually it was similar to the drawing I ended [...]
Working away on my script at the moment, but here is a doodle of Harold Holt and some fish in the meantime.
Another exercise I created for the class I teach.
It felt awkward to me to ink this with an artline marker pen, I really wanted to use a brush, but my younger students don’t have the dexterity to use brush for this kind of work yet.
I still don’t know exactly what style I will draw this story in, but simplifying the characters like this helps me to memorize their features so that I can consistently draw them without reference.
The characters above are top row: Harold and Zara Holt. Bottom Row: Enid and Joesph Lyons.
David bought a Samsung Slate tablet the other day. This is the drawing I made on it.
I’m calling this my first digital drawing, but now I think on it I made 100% digital drawings in Microsoft Paint and Dr Halo paint program back in the 90s. This time round was a lot easier!
