A Quick Little Story For A Quick Little Sketch

While on a lunch break last week, i started scribbling a spirit (genie). I pretty much had a picture in my head of what i wanted it to look like. One big aspect of it is that it appeared to be made partially of stone with carvings of the contract to its owner inscribed on those parts. From there, i came up with a spur of the moment story summary. If you are interested in the story, and do not mind a gratuitous amount of spelling errors, feel free to read the story on the image above. I see it as a light hearted and fun story that will not take itself too seriously. And if anything comes from it, it will probably be in the form of a series of short comics. Anyways, I think it turned out pretty well for only being done on a lunch break. Way to go me.

Lastly, here is a color study for an image that i did a couple months ago. Well see what happens from here.

Final Colors

So here are the final colors. I wanted to keep the color scheme cool, mainly relying on blues and purples. I used a bit of green in her hair to throw it off a bit, as well as some red on the necks and the head she is chowing down on. The original layout had some empty space for text, but as I kept working on it, I became accustomed to the empty sky space. It worked really well with the mood. So im debating on including the text or not. O decisions decisions.

Busy Busy Busy

Work has been taking up a lot of my time as of late. My boss promised me that the my hours will return to normal in a week. I will miss all that extra money flowing into my pocket, but the surplus in art time will be welcomed. Here are some of the things I have been working on.

I went back into my pile of Inks and found this picture that i was meaning to color. So, to set the pace on achieving the goal, I laid out a color study. Its pretty basic, but the details in the skull pile should really make it interesting when that point is reached.

Here are the finished inks for Murder Parade. I was thinking of putting some party banners on the upper empty area. Just a thought though. I really want to color this one, so im hoping my boss is right about my work schedule chilling out a little.

I was feeling a little blue this morning so I started sketching a happy picture. The subject is stemming off of the Dragon story started a while back. In this picture, the two main ladies where brought to the tiny dragons "tiny" Capital city deep underground. The city is quite adorable and the market is filled with pie shops and candy stores.
