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.
Computer-generated perspective grids
Responsive design, and my progress
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 more panels copied for practice
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.
Charles Bargue arms
Playing some with the Gimp colorize function.
Charles Bargue hands
And hands. Having fun with this still.
Charles Bargue feet
Copying Charles Bargue plates for practice. The feet. Also tried out different ways of coloring and shading.
