OK. SO its been a while since i posted anything. In my defense a week of it was because I was on vacation. I visited a friend in Portland for a pretty awesome, wet, week. It was pretty neat being on the west coast. I saw an incredibly clean and green city, saw some some really big trees as well as Haystack rock, which is not only very big, but was also in the Goonies. I further developed my addiction to sushi and wasabi, saw a short mummy, watched some chickens cross a road, saw an amazing animated movie called The Illusionist, and witnessed a homeless couple break up with copious amount of spit flying. Than there was all the inking and drawing.
I wasnt able to work on this until i got back from Portland. Sometimes i really wish my Labtop didnt torch its insides. But when i got back, i was able to put a few hours into it. I still have to work on the robo-bear's other arm, and do some things with the background. Other than that, probably a few touch ups.
There where plenty of drawing to do without my computer. On the flight over, I started to work on some more Inks. Although, most of the flight I was a bit distracted by my seat neighbor and the interesting conversations we had. The top picture is titled "Bitches Be Crazy." The ultimate goal was to come up with a comic cover concept. I took it further than expected by inking it but o well. There is a little graphite work i would like to do in the background and some more details in the foreground. Other than that, it will be colored if i still have interest in it.
This is the other one I started on the flight over, but worked on it much more than the picture above while in Portland. It is titled, "Murder Parade." I have been juggling this concept around for a while and finally got to it. As you can see, it is only half inked and barely entirely drawn out. I have been noticing that things dont have to have be as drawn out before i ink them anymore. Most of the details and pretty much everything else comes in the inking phase. I feel that I have become quite comfortable and confident with inks. If anything catastrophic happens, there is always white out. Anyways..... i really want to see this picture to the end. Something about it is comically relaxing to me. Its all their cute little faces.
