This is where I post musings, designs, experiments relating to my Short Comics.


So it's on to head phase I! Layins, skulls, Asaro heads, all the way up to the Reilly head abstraction.


So I've started this course on Watts Atelier online, it's an amazing place! Thoroughly enjoying the exercises and I am getting better quickly. I am happy found that site, what an amazing online resource! I am looking at doing this for the next few years, at least for the first few hours every morning.

So here are some photos from my homework for Fundamentals I and II. It really starts at the beginning: sharpening pencils, hehe!


I continued work on Javascript code that helps me generate perspective grids.


vPoint is an online utility that allows traditional artists to create perspective grids and construction lines to support their hand-drawn art.


Some more art. These were originally sketches in a sketchbook, which I traced, inked and colored into these finished pieces.

A tylically Dutch windmill:


Part of the fun of making art is making your custom art tools. Here are two pens I customized.


A caricature of George Lucas. I am thinking of practicing caricaturing a bit more, as that will help me push poses and expressions in my stories.


Some finished drawings based off warm-up sketches. I just love Mike Mignola's art and keep being inspired by it.


Here's another batch of panels I copied for practice. I decided to make them tonal studies and to try to use only three main tones.


One of the things I'm trying at the moment is copying panels from existing comics pages, for the purpose of study and practice. I get to practice penciling, inking and coloring and I'm hoping constructing poses and worlds and how to suggest things will seep in through osmosis. I'm also taking a colorist course at Comics Experience at the moment and also a course on how to create a story through images, panels at the Sequential Artists Workshop, both great places to learn the craft.


Playing some with the Gimp colorize function.
