New Art

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here but I’ve been busy working on a new project that I will start production on in the next 2-3 weeks (and release sometime in late spring). To get ready for this new comic, I’ve been pouring a lot of time and effort into shoring up some weak spots in my drawing and writing; reading a lot of books, studying a lot of art, and drilling myself on some of the basics. I spent a week doing nothing but anatomy studies, then a few days on reading up on composition, and then a few days of reading about vehicles and environment drawing. This will continue for a another ten days or so and then I’ll start work on the comic itself, which has now been in pre-production for close to six months. I’m working as hard as I can to make the new comic the best I possibly can… After falling into several pitfalls with Variables, I am doing my best to be as prepared as possible for this new project.

Now that I’ve spent a bunch of time working out some of the kinks, it’s time to start playing around with different styles to see what I like best when I go through the entire process of inking and coloring. Here are a few examples of recent work: the Mary Marvel and Green Arrow pics were earlier attempts at trying out new ideas while the Wonder Woman is something I finished just last night. I’m going to spend about a week doing a bunch of these one-off drawings to refine the style and get back into the swing of producing finished art. All of this work was done on bristol board with Copic Multiliners for ink and Copic Sketch markers for color. Expect to see more of these in the coming week.
