Week 13: Cinema

Blind date at the cinema

I know it may not fit properly under the illustration category, but web comics are a thing I have been interested in for a while. I know this isn’t exactly relatable, I’m just revealing my very strange sense of humor and love for puns.
I probably should have coloured it in and added a bunch of shading, but I’m trying to keep it simple, as soon as I start to add any details I can’t stop. Enjoy this dumb little comic and let me know if I should continue to experiment with more stuff like this. Thanks for checking it out! 🙂

Digital Doodles #1

As some of you may know, I have been trying to teach myself some Photoshop skills. There is a lot for me to learn. I only know the basics and I have been practicing with my ancient wacom tablet I got 6 years ago. This blog post isn’t anything flashy to show off skill, but more of a way for me to record how I am doing, so I can look back and compare when I become a pro.

I know I’ve been getting a lot more positive responses from my traditional art, but I have a really strong feeling that if I want to make any sort of career as an illustrator, I need to be able to use Photoshop professionally. According to my online research it would be a lot better to use illustrator, but I think I’ll wait until I have a well paying job.
The first page of Tom Price’s comic was my first experimental work with Photoshop. It took me a while, but I find it really taught me some skills with drawing on Photoshop. Although it is also a reminder that I can only work confidently on black and white, I feel no strong connection with colour and find it really hard to work with. That is something I am currently working on.

Doodles #4

While I am in a wordy mood, I may as well catch up with my blogging, I only get like this at night time these days. The drawings I am about to share are from the last few months. They are actually from a drawing challenge I didn’t stick with, but at least I did some art!

Doodles #3

Yet another blog about doodles, but most of the art of mine that I actually like are doodles. Anyway here are two old doodles and three more recent doodles.

skull
Comic zombie skull, felt tip pen on paper, 2014.

This is a complete copy from a comic book about “zombie history” of a zombie skull. I would like to develop a comic book style of drawing, so every now and then I completely copy something from a comic book so steal the technique. Hey don’t judge, I’m not exactly claiming the design as my own, just learning from better artists, on the other hand Picasso did say “good artists borrow, great artists steal”.
