One Trick Pony

Just some proof I’m still working!

Name That Comic

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

Below are the first four pages. A lot of the panels are still begging for more attention to detail, but I’ve resolved not to go back to them until I’ve finished the remaining four! I also need to come up with a cover, and consequently, a title, so if you have any suggestions, let me have `em!

 

 

 

The Drivel is in the Details

Yup, I’m still laboring over the first few pages, fleshing out the New York City detail and adding a little more contrast to the images.

Down to the Wire

It’ll be a marathon of comic book drawing this weekend!

Pokey Man

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

Gee, I’m slow in my old age. (What was my excuse before?) I’m pretty sure most of my classmates will have completed comic books tonight. I’ve done the finished artwork on 2 1/2 pages, have drawn up to page 6, and still have to draw pages 7 and 8. Oh, and I guess I have to draw a cover. Should be easy to do in 2 weeks, as long as I stop getting distracted by shiny objects.

Now, Page 4

Yes, that’s right, I’m not even halfway through the rough drawings, but I was somehow compelled to produce that polished first page yesterday. A window into my inherent inefficiency.

But Wait, There’s More?

Wouldn’t it be cool to open up a comic book and see this as the first page? Wouldn’t it also be cool if 7 additional equally-finished pages were right behind it? It suuure would.

Perspective for Digital Dummies

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

Ok, I think I’m back to inking digitally. One of the cool things you can do in Clip Studio is easily create perspective guides. It’s a great time to be a hack!

Softening Up

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

I know everyone’s sick of looking at the same handful of panels, but I’m still experimenting with ink. I liked the look of my Elmo cartoon yesterday, which was done with my Kuretake brush pen. Its softness lends itself to looser, thicker lines, so even if I’m tracing a pencil drawing, it’s bound to feel less stiff. There’s still a part of me that wants to get that smooth crowquill look of, say, Blondie or Pogo, but at my current skill level I should probably either go for the looser look, or give up and ink on the computer.
