Title: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: staticgirl on 10 February, 2010, 02:33:48 pm
Here we are then entertain us!

As suggested in the Hot Dang Doodle Thread (here in fact:
http://www.2000adonline.com/forum/index.php/topic,24092.msg489521.html#msg489521 )
- a reader's art thread for those pieces which are nicest.

To start us off...

Inspired by the lyrics of a Kinks song, just about the only piece I've ever done that I look at without cringing...

This is part one of a three card series I did for this Christmas just gone - when placed together all three connected images make a larger picture.

I printed them out, then distributed them at work and let them figure it out for themselves - was very satisfying when the company director came running into my office, having just worked it out, asking to see the remaining part - he later asked if I could print one of each for him.

I'd caution against it, The Legendary Shark has had to have years of therapy thanks to the post-mortem antics of a certain Mr Solomon Cohen, South African hairdresser turned British comedy film legend. Such an image could put him back years and start the bed-wetting again (the worse thing being it was other people's beds, so you can add nudey sleep walking and nocturnal somnolent burglary to the rap sheet. Plus he is a shark). So I implore even the most impish of artists to please show some restraint in this matter.

Yes, Zombie Saints!

My mother was given one of those Catholic "trading card" things - a picture of a saint on the front, a relevant quote from scripture or whatever on the back.  Sadly no stats for Top Trumps style gameplay.  Anyway, my point in mentioning this is she and I near fell over upon looking at the picture.  The dude looks JUST like Barak Obama.

On the downside, CAN I FIND THE THING to prove my point?  No.  Move along.  Nothing to see here.

A kind of zombie!?!  He was Patient Zero!  Remember, he died to break the chains of death itself.  Only by eating His flesh  an ddrinking His blood can you achieve life after death.  He is (literally) Sweet Zombie Jesus.

And they weren't even the ones I was thinking of when I went agoogling.

The exact reason for this piece escapes me now - a comp perhaps?

But now this JPEG is all that exists of the piece where I feel I first 'got' inking line art with brushes.

And that's why I have a positive attachment to it still.

(http://www.2000ad.org/images/fanart/vertex_beta14.jpg)

My one major criticism in hindsight was the unnecessary Pshop. Something I can't change as I no longer have the digital files or original artwork.

To me the texturing of the clothing adds nothing. The halftone 'vertex' in back frames the figure well enough though.

Gibson - that linework is so full of life it bursts off my screen!

IOEM - I like the texture on his clothes - it gives that shiny shellsuit type fabric look to it (although you may not have wanted that!) :)

IIRC that was something I was trying for.

Thing is - at around that time I'd found this one brush in Pshop - became obsessed with it - discovered how to tweak the values - wanted to use it in every image - kind of like a 'ketchup with everything' moment.

I can date pretty much everything I did back then down to that one brush.

Perhaps that's what it is - that bit just looks dated to me now.

I don't visit the thread for a couple of days and all this smokin' material turns up.

Woolly, you,ve got a Dan-Malone-of-Bitmap-Bros feel coming on there - meaty.

And MGB - I'm finding the clean ink lines over earthy textures and muted palette pleasing too.

And cheers Matt - I've got a heap of old back-up CDs to trawl through - I'm hoping that the original scan is on one.

Was thinking earlier that i havent seen anything from Jimbo in a while, and then a double-whammy* of stunners!

Funnily enough, that statement can be flipped around and applied to you! Gorgeous mutie, Sir. Yeah, I'm not getting quite as much time as I'd like to 'art' - my sketches and linework rarely progress as far as the full Pshop treatment these days, and me being me I daren't post anything I'm not completely happy with.

I love that this thread has brought back (however temporarily) some of the board artists who've been a bit quieter in recent years - Woolly, JStress, etc. And all arrayed alongside the new blood that we've gained since! Loving the lino cut and Dunk's zombies.

Does anyone remember Skoi? He really seemed like an artist to watch, but I don't think he's posted for a couple of years now.

Seems like an appropriate place to post this - an entry for one of the xmas art threads a few years ago. Unfinished because I somehow managed to simultaneously delete the other half of the picture and flatten the layers of what was left before overwriting all previous versions. A system restore never occured to me and it's far too late now, so this is all that remains...

Thanks lads. Like I say, this is only the surviving half of a much bigger original.

I can relate. I think people only get into the back-up habit after they've suffered their first major data loss. My PC has just died and I'm struggling to remember how long it's been since I backed up. I reckon I'll have lost a few months worth of photos, but could've been a lot worse. For some (prescient?) reason, the last time I transferred pics from my camera card, I copied them but did not erase the card like I usually do, so lots have been saved!

Well, it really warrants a dedicated drive, but given the price of HDDs these days, I don't really see the issue with that.

Which, sadly, happened to mine. It's a question of how much redundancy you're prepared to build into your system back-up procedures. I'm looking into an online/Cloud-based solution as a back-up to my back-ups, since there's a limit to how many drives I'm prepared to have sitting on my desk!

Too true, can you imagine getting something like that [related to your own interests, obviously] as a present?  Your head would explode!  Top marks also due to whoever thought of the idea in the first place.  I'm now imagining my son getting a page of comic art showing him and Captain Rex blasting droids together... I think we'd have to dose him with sedatives first.

Tord- Back in 2006 my little girl was turning the big 5, so I asked an artist I new from FQ to draw a pic for her.

The artist was Stewart McKenny and he'd just landed the job drawing Star Wars adventues for Dark Horse.

(http://www.futurequake.co.uk/imagebucket/davepersonal/2006SMckennyShaakTi.jpg)

The original is framed in my little girls bedroom.
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: TordelBack on 23 February, 2010, 07:37:47 pm
Oh, we know who Stewart McKenny is in our house!  I sensibly bought all ten of the original Clone Wars Adventures books (which are among the greatest Star Wars comics ever produced... Volume 3 in particular is pretty much perfect comics) for my own amusement, never dreaming that I would be reading at least one aloud every damn night for months on end...  Oh for a return to The Whale and the Snail!

McKenny's "The Drop" and "Heroes on Both Sides" are two of TordelBoy's favourites (despite the serious moral ambiguity of the latter).  The man draws a mean Ugnaught Jedi.    

Awesome Shaak Ti, BTW, lucky girl!

I always thought that the Mona Lisa looked more like a crackhead or smackhead with the lank greasy hair and unhealthy looking complexion.She is particularly unattractive whichever way you look at it.

The Mona Lisa looks like Neil [Young Ones].

-tccch- Kerrin, that's plainly Clone Trooper armour, a quick look at the kneepads should have made that clear.  Love the way James has managed to make it look close to a kid's proportions rather than just sticking his boy's head on top of Temuera Morrison's body, quite brilliant.

Yes. Yes it does. Cheers for the comments everyone. I've edited the line on his cheek out on the original, it was making him look a bit too old.

He's been a bit sick this week so this will cheer him up no end.

A fake cover for the non-existent issue 16 of 1980s UK horror comic, Scream! (it only reached issue 15 before merging with Eagle). This was originally created for April Fool's Day last year. It now looks slightly more authentic after being fiddled about with in Paint Shop Pro.

Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: James on 26 March, 2010, 04:25:34 pm
Krom- I googled texture, found a hi res 'burnt milk' image, which I bunged into Photoshop, desaturated, posterised using levels, copy and pasted into a selection area taken from the cloak. I set the texture layer to multiply which made all the White transparent and stretched the image within it's mask. Easy.

Tordelback-if your serious drop me a PM.

Nah James, I'm too pretty to be a crazy old wizard.  But I do have a clone-obsessed youngling with a birthday coming up and no artistic talent of my own, so I'll converse with the wife and get back to you...
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: Hoagy on 26 March, 2010, 05:13:10 pm
 ;)Top tip for expelling the white alternative to multiply.
Its from a top illustrator though I forget his name.

Firstly make your image greyscale.
Go to channels.
Select button.
Back to layers.
New layer.
Return to colour.
Fill Selection.

Its particularly useful with pencils.And is supposed to take a little heat off in the printing department.

Give it a try anyhow.

Rads, I think deviantART resized it when I uploaded and caused a bit of compression glitchy stuff. The original is supersmooth. I forgot to put the highlight layer (from the glow of the lightsaber) on too, so I'll reupload it sometime. Maybe.

I'm fairly sure you did see it at Bristol last year but it was at the end of my folio. By the time you got there you were already telling me how much you wanted the strip ahead of it. Dogbreath can still have it if they want it. I fell out of love with it after Simon Bisley called it shite, shortly before he signed my arm and called me a c**t.

Anyway, this is an art thread so here is some more art. The first page of that Dredd strip I was showing around Hi-Ex. It's not quite finished as I have just noticed the eagle pad in the last panel is missing a few lines (curses!).

I think there are a few people round here who'd be happy with Simon Bisley calling them a c**t - although he might want to do some work on giving up and coming creators feedback ;)

Still it is lovely job you've done there. "Cycle of Violence" is the most popular sample script and while I suspect those tackling might not want to look at the thread until they are done ;) there is a thread on the sample strips here it you want to see other people take a run at it (plus f you want any detailed feedback you can ask there):

It was originally the movie Lawgiver on the first page, and it will be again on the later pages set in the future. I thought this one was an early Lawgiver, shows how much I know about Dredd. :-[

It's one thing to draw a nifty stock Dredd pose - another entirely to draw a full strip.

Drawing a comic is like making a mini short film, and you are responsible for almost everything - costume design, lighting, set design, location scouting, casting, grading, direction, editing, stunts and vfx....

It requires a feat of mental gymnastics before you've even put pen to paper and I have the utmost respect for those that are able to do it.

"cover of their prog"

Is what I thirded sunshine - cover cover cover. I want a Radiator cover in 2011 OR I STOP READING 2000ad. It's as simple as that.

Well obviously no, but a cover would be fabulous. Be like Brashill, get in via covers and then do strips a bit later. Although that strip SHOULD NOT be a new Spacegirls. Lawdno.

Seconded. I frequently write panels and think 'I have no idea how the artist is going to do that', but they always do, and usually better than I could have imagined.

In the sample script I've drawn (Generation Killer) there was one panel in particular that gave me a bit of a nightmare. The description went something like:

Quote
Character A holds up Character B and electrocutes him using his powered gauntlets. In the background, characters C and D advance cautiously. Behind them all, Dredd bursts into the room, gun drawn.

I literally could not work out a way to get all of that information into a single panel - and the result was a disaster!

How much space did that give you - ? Whenever I draw from someone else's script I normally end up creating extra panels or squeezing down others. Although thankfully I've found the perfect way to get around the whole process is to not be good enough to be asked to draw anything. It works for me.

Quote
Speaking with my writer's hat on: writers are idiots. They have no clue how much information can be conveyed in a panel. As an artist, it's your job to fix the script! I haven't written a script that's been illustrated where the artist hasn't made some fundamental changes to what I described. Every single time, I've looked at what they've done and made a mental note that this is the reason why someone else is drawing the strip!

Cheers

Too true!
I invariably have an extra panel or two in there that the artist will merge into one.
(This might be better advice for the writers thread but anyway) Remember that the artist is changing the script to make it better, not worse- don't be so fucking precious.

Fair point, Jim. But if I was going to submit a strip, surely it would not impress the editor if I started chopping and changing panels because I know better?

I just guessed they had chosen those sample scripts specifically because they've got a few nasty panels to put the artists to the test.

I wouldn't presume to know what Matt is looking for in a sample page, but I suspect that he's looking for a page that tells the story well. If that meant -- for example -- breaking the Dredd action into a separate panel, or an inset, then I can't imagine he'd bat an eyelid. It's not like you're deviating from the script by leaving stuff out because it's hard to draw, which definitely is a no-no!

Not really the same thing, but I had to do a lettering test to get my first paying job and I really, really fretted over deviating from the script, but in the end, I think I twice broke a caption into two, moved a speech balloon into a different panel and added several unscripted sound effects. It improved the flow of the page and got me the job precisely because they are paying me to know better!

Cheers

There is a thread for attempts at the sample scripts and I'm sure we'd all be happy to give you feedback/advice on what you've done (I'll go and take a sneaky peek at the story now). As I've said to you before I (and many others) would love to see some sequentials from you. I know you are concerned about speed but I bet Matt Timson could beat you in a "slowest artist" race, you just have to pick your projects carefully. Plus you'll get quicker with practice and your visual storytelling skills will improve too with time, so you won't worry so much about such panels (although I do suspect an above comment about this possibly being chosen as a test has some merit, in "Cycles of Violence" the last panel on the first page is very tricky to get right as you need to basically have Dredd firing up and left, which throws the flow across the page and could be something that separates the men form the boys).

If you can't take criticism, especially constructive, then don't put any work up for scrutiny. If you're collaborating with someone then you both want it to be as good as it can be.

So far, I've never had any criticism I've thought of as unfair or without basis. Sadly, and it's probably to do with my scripts, they tend to be things that suddenly seem dead obvious.

I went and did just that and it is funny when you see it - the description makes it sound like a big, mad, busy panel and John Higgins has drawn it pretty small and pretty simple, you'd pass right over it and not bat an eye lid (you'd certainly not think it was the kind of panel that would cause despair). I suspect you've overthought it.

I'll try and have a look at the script later to see what was so infuriating about it - I just remember that there were so many elements all together that made it difficult.

It was a year ago I drew it so I may approach it completely differently now.

I suspect you've overthought it.

Here's the description as it is in the script:

Quote
Imal puts a hand on Peart’s shoulder, there’s a little electric discharge and Peart jerks as if stunned. In bg Dredd comes running into Maternity unit, gun drawn. Halfway between the two the two security men have stopped, in a quandary about what to do.

PEART: uHHhH!

DREDD: LET GO THAT CITIZEN, CREEP!

That is quite a lot of info to get into a single small panel - Peart and Imal need to be dominant in the panel to clearly show what is happening (the electrocution), there are three other figures - Dredd's entry needs to be suitably dramatic, and there is also dialogue and sfx to consider.

If I were to draw the panel now, perhaps I would find it easier, but it was a year ago that I attempted it!

I didn't refer to Higgin's art at all as I wanted it to be completely my own take.

Post by: Emperor on 16 May, 2010, 06:51:47 pm
I didn't refer to Higgin's art at all as I wanted it to be completely my own take.

Indeed, that is probably the best approach but if you get stuck it is worth a peek to see how Higgins conquered it. So, for example, he didn't do this: "Peart and Imal need to be dominant in the panel to clearly show what is happening" Peart is closest to the viewer but hard up against the left edge of the panel and all we see of Imal is his hand (because that is all that was needed - the reader can fill in the rest there). Also although the security men are closer than Dredd he has put them off to the right of the panel cringing, that leaves Dredd in the middle of the panel. Its a clever solution allows for a relatively small panel - there are a whole range of ways of drawing it but I suspect it is just practice and experience that help spot that you can simplify the panel a bit and not loose any of the information.

Any chance we can see your pages?

I did something similar in the end - I drew the panel from Imal's POV with just the hand visible. It makes me cringe a bit to look at it.

Those are great Cpt Rhodes. I wish I could paint as cool as that.

This is my first ever published comic book work. It's cover B to The Phantom: Ghost Who Walks #3 which was published last year sometime by Moonstone Books. Looking at it now I'd have drawn the lines differently. I'm also a lot better at colouring comics than I was back then.

"A small person watches the TARDIS on a hover telly/stool - inconveniencing a bobbing bird of some description - whose movement encourages affixed cheese to arouse the attentions of a nearby conveyormouse who runs and runs but ends up - with affixed fluffsticks - bothering a cat below."

I am not the biggest fan of artwork that is done digitally but i like this a lot because it has a sort of finely painted look about it.Not only that its dynamic and full of energy and then theres the coloring......

I have no idea how you do this and i wouldnt even bother explaining because i am a complete Luddite when it comes to comic art.

AXECOP! Cool beans Crazy. I'd completely forgotten about Axecop. Just went and checked the site out (LINK HERE (http://axecop.com/)) and I've got loads of episodes to catch up on. WOO-HOO!

Just saying, but didn't Thor have a hammer? Maybe he thought it would be foolhardy to bring a hammer to an axe fight. I bet that's it.   :D

That Sly Stallone caricature is fantastic Cap'n.

And Pugg's Yeti is class.

Yes. Still if it results in something that good I'll let you off ;)

why does Thor have a hammer?

In fact if you look at the gorgeous art for the upcoming limited series you'll see Thor with an axe:

http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/06/12/thor-for-asgard-simone-bianchi-art/

On his hammer see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mj%C3%B6llnir

Although Mjollnir is usually shown as a hammer it has also been depicted as an axe.

oh no, it wasn't because of the eye, I've just decided I don't really like it, I uploaded it as a quick thing because I wanted to upload this thing before I went out, but then that wasn't working so I'll do that another day, anyway I uploaded this and I don't like it, but don't worry about removing it, it's not that important.

Its certainly very competent but its one of those instances where when i see something new for the first time i cant decide if i like it or not.I quite often get that with music that i havent heard before.

Thats not to detract from it as it was just my  reaction to seeing it.

It looks like it has been inked with a brush so thats a big plus.

It's my own story that I publish on Deviantart. http://staticgirl.deviantart.com/gallery/#Empires (http://staticgirl.deviantart.com/gallery/#Empires) People can read it for free. As long as I have a full time job that I hate, at least I can paint in my free time and not worry about it being commercial.

I have been writing stories for these characters since I was a teenager so 20-odd years now. I have posted it online for a few years after I stopped being a completely awful artist. I am the slowest artist in the world however so only 40 something pages have been completed in 3 years! the story is deliberately derivative of my fave sci-fi so that I could just stop worrying about being original and get on with it - the end result gets put through my own personal filter anyway so people haven't told me it's that cliched. Maybe they don't read space opera.... 

I really like it when girls say they like it because you know how hard it is to get them into comics (other than manga perhaps) now. I have a pensioner correspondent who read the Eagle back in the day who likes it too which is cool.

The next story isn't going to be coloured, I can tell you.

I done coloured this in:

(http://www.mattnicholson.myby.co.uk/JD1.jpg)

To reiterate, I didn't actually draw it. The line art is by  Shane Heron (http://prettygoodcomics.blogspot.com/) (see MarcusNinja's Commission thread), and I nicked the background image from a guy named knotlikeyou2 (http://knotlikeyou2.deviantart.com/) on DeviantArt. Both very nice pieces in their own right, in my opinion.

I'm still at least some kind of minor deity of colouring things in, though...


Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: Woolly on 31 July, 2010, 07:43:17 pm
Thats a nice, bold colour job. Not a bad Dredd too.
My only advice would to have a little less shadow on Dredd's chin, looks a bit like a goaty!  :)
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: IAMTHESYSTEM on 31 July, 2010, 07:53:24 pm
You had the vision to put it all together Noisybast and it looks very good. These three seperate elements look like they belong together despite being done by different artists.  

If you want Dredd to blend slightly more with the background the old Matte Painter trick was to take the colour in the background and mix it with the colours in the forground. You could lightly dust with the blue/green colour the back of Dredd's helmet, shoulder pad, Eagle, arm etc but only if you want this effect.  

If you want Dredd standing boldly in the foreground then you've done enough. You could try putting a Nightstick or gun in his hands but if colourings you're thing then say Nyet [no in Russian] to that suggestion. :)

(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg86/ToadyCat/JD1Colouring-DreddNoisybast.jpg)


As you can see I've gently painted some of the background colour the blue/green grey into Dredd's visor, shoulder Pad etc and elimanated the black, horizontal box lifting Dredd fully into the foreground.

This is a fairly common technique often used by Painters. It's not just used by Matte Painters who often use the colour of the sky to fade off the background elements. This is called atmospheric perspective objects in the distance tend to get bluer and greyer and have less contrast.

So if you want to add a little subtlety to your comic strip colouring then add a little halo of the background colour. We're helped here by the fact the blue/grey background contrast well with the yellow orange of the Shoulder pad and Red of Dredd's Helmet. Yellow/ orange/red tend to work well with blue/ green which is their complimentary colour opposite.

Hope this helps somewhat Uncle Fester. :geek:

Rabbits:  Non-native, introduced to British Isles by the Normans (some say the Romans).  Smaller, shorter ears and hind legs, nest underground, social animals, eat soft stems/grass/veg, born very immature.  

Hares:  Native to Britain and Ireland. Larger, longer ears and hind legs, coats change colour seasonally, nest and live above ground, solitary animals, eat twiggy vegetation, shoots etc. born fully furred and mobile.

They both eat their own poo, though.  I'm sure House of Usher can elaborate.

There are a LOT more Rabbits around than Hares and i have only seen a Hare once years ago in the Castle Howard estate and that was 20 years ago so they must be very scarce.

Hares prefer unimproved ground with plenty of cover, rabbits are happy enough with parks, lawns and golf courses.  Guess which species is in decline.  We have two species of hare in Ireland, our native Irish, and the introduced Brown or European hare.  Does Britain still have an introduced as well as a native strain?  (I only know this stuff because they're useful archaeological dating markers:  rabbit bones = 12th C or later; Brown hare = 19th C or later).

I see a lot of hares from the train when I'm travelling through Sth Lincs.  There are parts of the county where local by-laws have been enacted to make it illegal to go lamping and hare populations have increased greatly. Which is a good thing because they are wonderful.

I drew a rabbit because my cousin's little boy hasn't seen one near him in Kent and the picture I used as rabbit ref was bigger in his I-spy book. :)

@Staticgirl obviously doesnt get out very much because whenever i go into town or into a shop there are usually Zombies to be found.There was a whole queue of them in a shop earlier on.They are usually passive rather than aggressive.

I like and especially the detailed areas inbetween the flat plain surfaces that the figure is standing on.Those were what my eye was drawn to when i first looked at this piece.I like the cloud effects well.

There is a bit too much blacked out area around the crotch area of the character where it looks like there should be a bit more light.Sorry to niggle and i am learning how to ink myself which is ongoing.

Nice inks Jim. (But should we be encouraging a letterer to get ideas above his station like a proper artist?)

There's something fundamentally bloody-minded about the fact that I'm a letterer -- something that's quite hard to explain to non-comic fans when they ask what you do for a living -- who's looking to branch out into inking, probably the only role in the comic creation process that's harder to explain to non-comic fans than bloody lettering.

Don't get me wrong -- I loves me some lettering action, but it never hurts to have an extra thingie to your whatnot.

Thanks. I've coloured 3 and a half of those 6 sample pages now - I'll post the lot when they're done. I'm also doing something for the small press soon.... something with 7 robots in it... but that won't see the light of day for a loooong while yet.... I've been experimenting with ziptone-type effects so that will probably feature heavily.

Should say that the Luna Dredd is one of the first things I've done since I got over my fear of brush inking - nearly all of it was done with a brush which I'm very pleased about.

Lovely stuff, radiator, but a six-stage process before you even get to colouring? Damn...  :o
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: radiator on 19 August, 2010, 01:09:47 pm
I don't think my work process is too unusual from what I've read and observed about other artists and it saves time in the long run.

If I was working on a big project like a strip I'd get into more of a flow and could lose a couple of the stages, but as I only get to draw occasionally the prepping cuts out a lot of the frustration of working and I don't need to spend hours wrestling with a drawing and waste time rubbing things out/redrawing things/tearing the whole thing up out of frustration.

I'll probably go all digital at some point anyway.

BOO!

For some reason, I find Zombies hard to draw - this is as good as Ive got after a few, and even this is more worked up sketch than anything!

Any idea how to make it look like its caught in fiery torchlight without him disappearing into the darkness or looking jolly and yellow?  Cant quite get the lighting right.

Hi fellow creative types.

Any observations most welcome.
Art was hand pencilled, then painted using brush and ink, scanned then coloured in photoshop.

I didn't really add them so much as cover them up a bit!  I expanded on a character drawing from a panel of an (as yet) unfinished (but I'm trying..) Lubatek strip.

The panel features a little bit more of the character (not Supergirl in this incarnation though) along with 4 other characters - panel attached below for 'interest'.

There's definetly something in the style of your art. I think as you evolve as an artist we're going to see something really special.

Your 'cliche' cosmonaut and robot are definetly the best of the bunch. Maybe you could stand to improve your humans? The superhero is good but still doesn't look quite right. That said, your dwarf and elf are slightly better.

I do like the face pic of Dredd in your gallery.

Using pattern brush to ink my art comp entry is proving a bit of the reverse though. I've used pattern brush, in the same way as a self-made photoshop brush to ink and colour this. You're right, to me there are no problems, but I don't have a very good screen.

You see, the tones come through with pattern brush and it shows on my recent art comp attempt. I don't know what I'm doing different.

Here's my attempt to colour a rather *ahem* interesting take on Judge Anderson. The original belongs to R.Kinnaird and can be found on DA.

(http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/4130/judgeandersonryankinnai.jpg)

I deliberately didn't go over the top with regards to eye blistering colour.

By the way, colouring with a mouse is a massive pain in the ass. I'm thinking about getting a graphics tablet but I don't have a lot to spend (birthday coming up otherwise it would be nothing at all). Any suggestions in the £150 region?
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: Emperor on 10 September, 2010, 01:41:14 am
Yes, interesting indeed...

You might want a bit more shading on things like the pouches as the colour is a little too flat. I also prefer a more toned down blue.

On the graphics tablet see:

Chil - the drawing itself gives ye a lot of hints on what to highlight on the suit - and I think you've highlighted the right things, you've just been far too subtle - as an experiment take it away and just give it hell - max up that burn tool - adjust that ol' contrast - you don't necessarily have to show us but do experiment with it

FYI - I got a graphics tablet for like, 40 quid that works just great ;)

After my attempts at Supergirl earlier in the thread, I thought I would try my hand at Superman.

A whole lot tougher to draw than Supergirl. And a whole lot tougher than Dredd for that matter due to the sheer amount of anatomy on show - no convenient body armour.

My respect for Superman artists has been cemented.

Hope you like it.

Regards,

Simon

Nice work Simon, excellent inking.

I'm lucky with anatomy drawing in so much that I can just do a self portrait.

Much as we'd like it to be otherwise, Fractal isn't a professional gig. GQ generously pitched in (as do all of our guest artists) and in this case, he was able to step in at very short notice and supply us with a page of fantastic pencils, which I inked and our own MyGrimmBrother coloured.

As I've said on my dA page, I nearly stepped up to do some deadline-relief inks on a title I was lettering for, but otherwise I'm trying to get good, after which I'll try to get fast, and then I'll see if anyone wants to give me some paying work!

I've been very impressed with the brush work that you've shared, PW, so your kind words are much appreciated. :-)

Very nice, Grimm. I particularly like the Hurley piece.

Pops: I've tried to draw Spidey doing the web thwip right at the reader and failed miserably. Yours looks good.

I think I'm pretty much done with this now. Tweaked some of the lighting and added a color hold to the beam. First time I've added a hold to anything and I'm not happy with it. There is still some black in there that I can't seem to get rid of. Anyone have any decent tutorials on using holds in Photoshop?

Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: chilipenguin on 21 September, 2010, 01:05:33 pm
As best I can tell, it's  when you colour the black lineart itself. So in this case, I've coloured the ray gun's beam a kind of greeny-yellow and coloured the black lines containing it to match.

It's usually done to make the foreground elements pop. So if you had a city scene with a epic battle in the foreground, you might want to blend the buildings in the backgrounds a bit to bring out the characters a bit more.

Saying all that, I'm probably wrong or missing some important piece of info in that regard.
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: Jim_Campbell on 21 September, 2010, 01:47:52 pm
Anyone have any decent tutorials on using holds in Photoshop?

Create a new Normal Layer called Holds. Load the lineart as a selection (CTRL or CMD-click the layer thumbnail for your lineart layer, or activate the channel if you're using a channel to protect the lineart). Put it to the Holds layer at the top of the stack. Pick your hold colour and paint over the bits of the lineart you want to change.

(If you're not getting a clean selection of your lineart, then it's probably anti-aliased. For colouring you do NOT want soft edges to your linework. Photoshop has conditioned people to think that jagged edges on linework is bad, but being able to see the jaggies when you zoom in to 600% is immaterial to how the art will print.)

Is there nothing you don't know Jim?  :D

That's pretty much what I did and you're right, I can't see the jaggies in a web version but there is a block of black in the line hold that I can't get rid of for some reason.

Post by: Jim_Campbell on 21 September, 2010, 02:40:56 pm
Is there nothing you don't know Jim? 

Colouring is on my list once I get done with inking. I started to grapple with colouring first, because the nuts and bolts of its mechanics mesh very well with my background in print production, but I found trying to grasp two disciplines at once meant that I was effectively doing neither, so I stuck colouring on the back-burner while I had a bash at raising my inking game.

Although I don't care for the finished style their technique seems to create, the Hi Fi Digitial Color (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hi-Fi-Color-Comics-Techniques-Professional/dp/1581809921/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285076085&sr=1-1) book is totally worth it, if only for the sections on prepping and flatting.

As I've mentioned before, the gold standard for colouring advice on the web is gutterzombie (http://www.dave-co.com/gutterzombie/) where you'll find the likes of Dave McCaig, Laura Martin (recently described by Todd Klein as the best colourist in comics) and John Rauch, plus many, many other pro colourists. Putting work up for crit there is a bit nerve-wracking but always worth it.

Cheers!

Cheers Jim. I've signed up to gutterzombie but haven't posted anything there yet. I don't understand half of what people are saying so that's a bad sign from the start. Need to man up and go for it I guess.

This time around it's the turn of 'All Star' Batgirl.  Colour and (limited)background to follow.

Hopefully this will be new take on WW2 with it's tounge firmly in it's cheek.

As a history buff myself I have yet to see anything that I don't believe to be 100% accurate and based on actual historical records. Actually there is a slogan in there somewhere: "100% historically accurate. Possibly" ;)

Pops, If you have Photoshop, to improve the blacks you could try this: Duplicate your layer, change the duped layer from normal to Overlay then play about with levels/brightness/saturation to suit. The process should give you a strong contrasty image.

More haphazard but potentially usefull is to use the magic wand to marquee those blacks.
Copy and paste them into a new layer then adjust their brightness/contrast.

Hope it's a help.

if you're using photoshop you can select a specific area and then fill it in black with the polygonal lasso tool - or even just the lasso one.

if you're using photoshop you can select a specific area and then fill it in black with the polygonal lasso tool - or even just the lasso one.

Do this on a separate multiply layer and flatten down when happy. Do not use the magic wand to make selections unless your lineart is 1-bit (bitmap -- no smoothed edges) and you have anti-aliasing turned OFF on the wand.

Cheers!

Jim

In my humble opinion I don't think the shadow is necessary and personally I'd be worried, (and that's only If I was doing it) that the shadow might actually make the handles hard to read as handles. The viewpoint is almost in exactly the same postion as the light which would render the shadows as negligible.
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?

Yeah, I love the impish nature of your art too. Tentacle Boy looks really good. Your mysterious character is good too, but not quite perfect. I can't help but feel the legs/feet of some of your characters look slightly off. I could be wrong. Still, everything else looks great. You're certainly not too far away from perfection.

hello..
I've been going all retro and cutting up my old comix to use as collage material for my paintings. Maybe I'm using good artwork to cover up my average work, but I've been looking at a whole bunch of 70's and 80's comics and think there was a real sociological reason for the types of stories that sold.
Anyways, presenting the work I've just finished today.
2000ad:Jobcentre

Any good comments, I may start complete thread on this...
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: CrazyFoxMachine on 17 October, 2010, 07:59:09 pm
...as long as you're correctly citing this. There was a big load of balls about this collage artist ripping off 2000ad stuff without crediting the original artists...
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: soulboyluis on 18 October, 2010, 12:53:24 pm
OK, I can see that would be an issue. I've left Dave Gibbons name on the poster, as he was the man that did the work originally, I'm creatively extending its narrative, by using a backdrop as a context for it be viewed in. And I've cut it up in a manner that I felt appropriate, so there.

Maybe I shoud get in touch with Dave Gibbons - I'd like his thoughts..but how...

Made a few tweaks...

@Judge Gumpty - Cheers. I agree about the model but I was having trouble getting all the levels and layer effects to mesh in a way that kept a suitably gothic look. Think I've got it now plus I tweaked some some of the text. Pretty happy with the result though I can't quite get her hair to blend properly.

@Radiator - Digging the ridiculous firepower.

@Simon - Awesome Supergirl.

Since this is the art thread, I thought I'd direct you to this:

http://mcgillowaygallery.com/BridgetMurrayExhib.aspx (http://mcgillowaygallery.com/BridgetMurrayExhib.aspx)

This is my mother's work, I was at the exhibition opening last night (art openings are always good for free booze by the way ;) )

It's mostly scenes of our hometown Derry from back when she was growing up.

With regards to comic art, my mother loves it. She appreciates the skill in everything from the consistent figure drawing to the story telling aspects. She's always asked to have a look through mine, (even though she never read them, she's only ever been interested in the pictures). She adored the art in The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael and the Trail of the Dead Left in his Wake.

Cheers for the kind comments all - the lighting on mnticore is a step up from this first attempt  (number 5 of a series of 15 - still not finished!) 

(http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n68/DobeyKweeg/trollwip.jpg)

I find my main problem (beyond the technical difficulties of drawing/colouring etc!) is not gadflyig about and leaving one thing unfinished to start another.  ive drawn all 15 of my series of 15, but rather than methodically work me way through em, i find myself picking at them randomly! I've even gone as far as drawing a 16th in the series sof 15 rather than bloody finishing one!

The good thing about small press is that you have to finish (or near as dammit!) the things for the sake of others waiting on you.  I can motivate meself to draw a lot, but when theres no deadline, I find it hard to focus!

Any tips out there?

Simon  -forgot to say - really liking the hair in that Supergirl - puts me in mind of russ Nicholson for some reason - I always loved that stylised, but "realistic" thing he had going on.

Leigh - great bleedin' imp. I always find making a big list of all the stuff you have (or want) to draw helps. Y'know - you move through it in a categorical fashion and your desire to do a task further down the list motivates you to do everything before that if that makes sense. Now relax and enjoy a big screaming amp.

Leigh - great bleedin' imp. I always find making a big list of all the stuff you have (or want) to draw helps. Y'know - you move through it in a categorical fashion and your desire to do a task further down the list motivates you to do everything before that if that makes sense. Now relax and enjoy a big screaming amp.

(http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2010/298/d/4/ab_by_metal_truncator-d31i9p8.jpg)

This is my favourite thing. You've never even seen my amp, yet you've nailed it.
Just finished a great gig in Soho about three hours ago - that's just what I needed to see!

This is a small portion of work in progress poster image I've got on just now. Still got a bit of detailing to do on the hair and the lower half of the pic is still very rough.
I keep all my reference work on the board to keep me right as i'm going along and in some cases I can diectly colour pick for accuracy but then that tends to change depending on how the scene's lighting affects it.
Hope you like it so far.

Between the day job and family duties I'm only turning in a fully painted page of comic art a month. Fine for a quarterly mag like Wasted but not much use otherwise.

Vixens is creator owned too and I'm having a lot of fun doing it at my own pace.

And what fine collection of reference images they are - who knew they could work together so well. It should also be an example of how to use them and in the other corner... Greg Land.

Between the day job and family duties I'm only turning in a fully painted page of comic art a month.

Of course, it could be a cover for starters - Siku made a recentish return with a cover. It might be a slow page rate but boy it is worth it for the finished product. We know you can draw a lovely lady ;) but you can turn on the dark and moody horror vibe too*, so I'd love see you on something like a Defoe cover. You have also shown a Dredd one could be a stunner and somewhere in the back of my head a little voice whispers Dirty Frank. Or Devlin Waugh. I'll stop now.

* And when the two combine... oh boy :o

In my defence, the boobs shot was for the shape of the dress round the cleavage and not for the cleavage itself which I already had in place. You can see in the main pic how I merged that shape with the collar of the uniform coat.

I'm not a perv, honest. Ask my therapist.

Post by: Cpt Rhodes on 29 October, 2010, 10:39:38 am
Proudhuff, It starts as an ongoing 4 page strip in Wasted from issue 7 onwards. (which will be February) and from what I hear It's looking possible that the the strip will be printed in full colour.

Apart from the cover art for isssue 7 and the strip itself I'm working on these individual poster images of all the Vixens to help promote it at marts and shows etc.

The strip is co written by me and none other than the board's Emperor himself.

Huzzah! I'll start buying it then, i currently find Wasted's 'joint behind the swearyword bikeshed' humour a wee bit redundent, but as an auld git with teenage sons I'm (hopefully) not the target audience

And lettered by "Gentleman" Jim Campbell.

Keep your fingers crossed for those colour pages folks as the art is stunning - it reduced Jim to one word replies: "yowzer" (page 3) and "woof" (page 4).

This is a bit of a departure from the norm for Wasted. I'm lucky the chose to give it a go.

There is nakedness and knob gags, so I think it'll fit in ;)

Excellent work Conceptboy. Twin, female Judge killers in shades and red jumpsuits, deadly and cool. I like the backround art too, scratched and bloody. It's got a punk album cover look to it.

Markchilly, Did someone mention that this is a SD agent? Sorry I'm a bit out of touch with the stories of late. The slight angle you've tilted him at works wonders and your line work is very strong.

Conceptboy - The Judge Killers should be turned into a strip and published in Zarjaz. Love the grainy backgrounds. It's an image bursting with possibilities.

Markchilly - that SD guy is getting more and more impressive with each drawing you post. Love the texture and detail of the skin.

Oh my! Lovely art.

Reminds me of a line I heard in a film a while back. "I can't think of nothing finer than a fine naked woman holding a gun."*
Except, perhaps a woman who is scantily dressed but the covering isn't covering the right bits.... (That's somehow naughtier. And she's technically dead too. This is so wrong....)

*I remembered the line but wasn't sure which film it was stated.  (I don't have a one track mind. Not at all.) One Google later it turns out it's The Whole Nine Yards. For some reason I thought it was a Tarantino film or one of the Beverley Hill's Cop movies.

I was hunting for some copies of old BW pages for Connor Boyle when I found these.
I also found a pile of very cartoony sketches for an aborted animated show from 2000.
This was some of the first stuff I did after I left comics. I'll stick em up once I clean up the scans.

Hey Cpt Rhodes (Alex?) those lines are so great ! Reminds me on Moebius !
This is just incredible to see the evolution of your works.
I think now I understand how your actual art looks so great without lines as you could draw so awesome stuffs in the past. You're really inspiring and I have to say one of the most talented arstist I ever saw ( and I work in a comic shop dude, I witness proper shit being published every week instead of having artists like you on the spotlights ! Come to think that at least we have some Langley/Mills good old Slaine anthology to save the lot ;°]anyway... )

These are some of my early attempts at storyboarding with Photoshop.
This was from a game I was developing at a studio a few years back but never got off the ground.
The rights to this concept have reverted back to me now and i'm mulling over the idea of doing it as a web comic in small episodic chunks.
I've never done hardcore horror before and I'd like to give it ago
The bottom portion is some the 3D art developed for the game by myself and Craig Gardiner

Post by: Cpt Rhodes on 17 November, 2010, 02:59:57 pm
Neil, the 3D Art was all done in Lightwave. relatively lo poly models but with high res textures to compensate. It was all renderd with radiosity which creates the realistic lighting and shadows. A touch of volumetric fogging and grain was added too because nothing in reality looks as sharp as it can on a computer.

These shots were created for an animated cut scene which generally made things look better than the in game engines that were around at the time.

Unfortunately Lightwave seems to have faded as a modeling/render package. These days I work with Maya for modelling although I still prefer the lighting capabilities of Lightwave best.

Didn't get much of mine done last night, too much real world work, life and family to deal with (like getting home to a red haired teenage daughter and a purple headed wife - female bonding with a splash of colour.)

Cpt Rhodes - I am going to colour it, and I'm thinking of doing a few of these and basing them on sketches from the field, a collection of soldier's sketches from an alternate history set in the 1950's where WW2 is still on-going and technology has advanced. Colours wise I'm thinking of desertising the armour and setting the sketch in North Africa...

Cheers folks!

I can't take credit for the design on either character - these are other peoples original characters that I have been commissioned to draw.

I agree though that the design work on the second, dark haired, character is really good - but you REALLY wouldn't want to draw a comic strip with her in. Had to hand draw all the tattoos and you would get fed up with that pretty quickly.

As to why did photobucket disallow the first picture.....god knows.  Here it is again.....no naughty bits on display!
Just Photobucket and it's usual oddness.

I'm not really keen on the colour scheme on this one...but again, the design isn't mine and I had to keep to the brief.

Quite liked the pose though so I did a quick conversion to Supergirl for a laugh (though she is a little too 'well endowed'). I'm not sure if I will ever finish it but who knows. Was going to have her sitting on a cloud if I did.

Why so many pictures of Super Girl I hear you ask?

Well, it seems to be a GUARANTEED way to achieve a LOT of traffic when posting to DeviantArt and is good for getting a bit of exposure!

Make of that what you will!

Draw a sexy night elf from World of Warcraft and you'll be raking in the hits on deviantart. I did one years ago for an art contest by Blizzard and uploaded it to dA. Since then I have had a neverending stream of 14 year old americans faving it.

They don't give a shit about anything else I have done though. :'(

It's a bit different for me as I did it fairly drunk and under 2 hours. Took a pic of myself and went from there (the gut muscles are pure fantasy... :P )

Gorgeous! I used to have Predator dreams as a teenager which were as bad as my zombie dreams now. Then one night I started lucid dreaming and fought back. Since then I rarely have the Predator dreams and when I do they're as fun as the film.

I haven't found a good way of dealing with the zombies yet and I am a bit rusty on the lucid dreaming too.

@Cthulouis: hi man, yes, I've had a shot years ago [early 90's]. I was such a dong at that age I failed to take advantage of a lot of amazing oportunities, then hardly drew a thing for about 10-12 years. Bewildering...

Been working on art seriously again for about 2 years, shaking off a lot of rust! Anyway, yes, working on some new sequential stuff with a cool chap from the states and I'm doing a wee story for Vworp Vworp fanzine with a Uk writer next year - take it from there then, I would like to try and do some small press work I think.

This has probably been my best recieved work to date. I made these at 'work'. Before I made these, people using the car-park were just giving out about the cold, once these popped up they would smile and a lot of people resolved to make their own snowmen when they got home.

The Hotel manager asked me where I found time to make them.

'Well', says I ' See ALL that snow I've been shovelling off your car park? Had to go somewhere dinnit?.'

Page 2 looked like it was going to be better in the roughs stage but it turned out ok. I don't think I have quite found my Dredd yet but I am happy with the mix of solid blacks and cross hatching I have been gravitating towards.

Hate to follow the magnificent Denton but here is an image for another amazing FERAL GARGANTUA jam (http://feralgargantua.deviantart.com/ DO JOIN IN).

"- The Blueshift Bombadier

- Doctor Damastes

I also chose to parody those bizarre 18th century paintings where there's always a landscape with people pointing in it. Or dueling in it. Or some other shit. What WAS THAT ALL ABOUT.

I love centuries out-of-date observations."

Thanks Zarjazzer and Kieran.

I have always had a soft spot for the much maligned fully painted era of the 90’s. Sure there was a lot of rubbish but there always is. Digital painting is nice when people get it right too (Alex Roland for example) but I do like to see a splash of paint in the pages of a new comic.

A quick bio (I'll introduce myself in the proper area later). Currently a bespoke carpenter/cabinet maker/shopfitter but in my youth dabbled with graphic illustration with various successes and failures. For the first time in 20 odd years I've decided to pick up the pen and put the artist hat back on.

This has been brought about by an interest in the new Dredd film and a recent purchase of a Dredd graphic novel no less!

I did a couple of 15 minute DreddHeads below but decided yesterday to draw something a little more substantial. My style ranges from photo’istic to scruffy sketch style. I’d be very appreciative and interested in anybody’s comments. This is a work in progress. I’ve done about 15 sketches to get where I at the moment so I’ve bunged a few up here for all to see. Ideally I’d like a bit of direction but any advice, good or bad, from anyone will be welcomed.

Post by: Neil McClements on 29 December, 2010, 02:09:37 pm
I couldn't agree more! The more I tried to make it look real the more unreal it got. So much so that I originally ended up with this as a sketch up.

http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h331/Archeyoap/Dreddsketch2.jpg (http://i1104.photobucket.com/albums/h331/Archeyoap/Dreddsketch2.jpg)

I can see that its too easy to over analyse Dredd and its better to lose the hold on reality and let it be how ever odd it might look.

@Wooly: Cheers, a likeness to anyone is not intentional, but he does look a tad cadaverous and... 'assembled' right enough. :)

@Archey: I like your Dredd, really! Nice details and  I enjoyed the tone work on DreddHead11.jpg.

The candor of your introduction  also reminded me of where I was exactly a year ago today, coming back to art after 10 years spent developing my web business. I've a long way to go before I'm happy with my basic drawing/layout skills, but I certainly feel more confident 365 days of drawing everyday later.  Go for it matey! :)

Software/hardware I usually use is pretty much what everyone else uses I imagine:

Alchemy: http://al.chemy.org/
Manga Studio: http://manga.smithmicro.com/index_ex.html
Corell Painter: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Product/1166553885783#tabview=tab0

Apple computers, Wacom tablet & recent addition, a Brother A3 DCP-6690CW printer/scanner.

...and occasionally pencils, paper. :)

Drawn originally in Manga 3.0 Ex. I then imported it [after a techno struggle] into Photoshop CS2.

 I should upgrade to Photoshop CS5 but I've just been told yesterday that I'm being 'downsized' from the early morning job. Oh well more time to draw! Thanks for the comments folks and keep a doodling!

PPS. And this was my take on SFX's art-challenge "do a actor as a character in the Whedonverse - They have got to already be an actor playing and other character in one of Whedon's shows AND it's gotta be opposite gender."  They're taking their own sweet time to display the results and I got bored of waiting.

Zenith and not a Unicorn in sight.

I’m nearly ready to put this up on the art comp, the more I worked on it the more distant the reference to the Dark Knight Returns became. Homage or not I’m pretty happy with how it’s turned out.

Gibson Quarter – great organ grinder with attitude. Brilliant quality to the inks.
flip-r mk2 – I did a double take when I saw teddy's left leg on Dirty Frank. Cracked me up. 
NeilFord – vicious microphone head with Maggie Thatcher Spitting Image puppet gob.
staticgirl –  can't say I know who it is, but that sure is a fine image of a woman with shooter. The hair and face are beautifully done.
I missed those Party Crasher images as was flat out working on my advent calendar piece. Beautiful work from Bhuna, johnnystress (love TMO's grin) and KerrazyFoxMachine's butler Dredd.
And right you are to be happy with that Zenith, Steve. I didn't spot the DK reference but now you mention it – brilliant.
Awesome as ever, Alex.

Ok, pleasantries out of the way, here are my final pieces for the advent calendar. I couldn't finish the second page in time for Xmas. As the first page was done more quickly it ended up being looser and I prefer it to the second page. Still trying to discover a preferred technique (digital/pen/brush – combinations etc). My first ever efforts on Bristol board. I made the mistake of sketching the panels on scraps of paper and then spent ages adapting them to fit the panel layout. For speed I did the lettering in Photoshop. Wasn't sure if the caption boxes should have punctuation at the end.

Apologies for the 'script'. I couldn't think of anything else that rhymes with 'holy' than 'hole-y' and the final two lines should repeat but I didn't think of that at the time.

Could be. There are at least 6 parts to the first arc (although who knows if a couple of ideas might present themselves?) but the potential to carry on beyond that. Problem is they are only 4 pages a go, so it is only going to make a graphic novella really and it might take a bit for them to accumulate. I'd certainly like a nicely bound little volume down the line.

Since babes and boobs are all over this thread of late, I'll chime in too. 'Vampire Vixens' aren't the only chicks in WASTED #7. Narcobitch makes her return in a 4 pager. Here's a peek at page 3!(http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/013/6/5/wasted__narcobitch_page_3_by_gibsonquarter27-d374o11.jpg)

That is arsom Dan but be careful there are people out there who will drag your art over hot coals for not being true to the original design. But saying that they probably don't go any further than the movie threads.

Cheers vzzbux. i didnt what to piss anyone off, just after seeing those shots from the movie and the mixed reaction it got i thought sod it i fancy having a go at a re-design. i know some may not like, but i dont work for 2000ad so its not going to see print.

Dan if you keep churning out art like that bike you may well end up in the prog. So keep pissing people off. How about some artistic licence on the Judge uniform?

I've also been tinkering with the Lawmaster- which is basically built around Kev Levell's Lawmaster.  Mainly because it was a good solid base and also because I'm a bit lazy.

Okay - not an entirely new picture....a reworking.  My 6 year old daughter pointed out that my earlier version of this didn't really look like Ventress. 

So, have changed the head, shortened the character, moved her torso, re-outlined and re-cropped.

Hopefully an improvement (my daughter was happier at least.....kids!).

This is a great image Legendary Shark. You've caught the brutal, soul destroying toll that must be exacted on the Judges and cleverly used Dredd's hand to cover his face and re inforce the gritty man on the edge look. Smart thinking!

Nice gun arm Chris Askham and the rest of Johnny Alpha's looking  good too.

No problem.  There's several reasons that are all pretty much tied into work in general.  For a start, I always seem to be too busy to do any samples.  Feeble, but true.  I've never been in a big hurry to submit samples anywhere, to be honest- and I only showed my portfolio to an editor for the first time last year- and even that was just because I thought I should (Vertigo were reviewing portfolios at Bristol and I was going anyway, so...).

Generally speaking, 2000ad seems to cram more onto a page than American comics do- which isn't a reason in itself not to do it, but it is something that I have to think about when factoring in time-for-money and deadlines.  I'm not that fast an artist and I work in a very convoluted and time consuming way (a habit I'm trying to break, by the way), so an extra two or three panels in a page can make a big difference to me.

All that said, I'd love to do a Dredd strip one day- just because I'd like to be able to say that I'd done it- which is why I'm always tinkering with designs in the odd quiet moments that I get between working, having children use my face as a trampoline, and allowing myself to get annoyed by stupid people on the internet.  I don't think Tharg would let me loose on Dredd without going the FS route, though (which is fair enough).

And Static Girl is a great illustrator of female figures, and their mannerisms. For one who needs diagrams to getting anywhere in "reading" women her stories inform me in a more versatile way to most artists in that field. Is that as patronising as I think it is, whilst trying too hard not be?

Cheers buddy. I have Manga Studio but have yet to get my head around it at all. Like Malicious, I'm a conditioned PS user! Do you do a physical drawing first or is that drawn digitally from scratch? Also, I don't have Painter, but could I export an image to photoshop to add details like you did with the lip gloss effect? Sorry to bombard you with questions mate!

Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?
Post by: NeilFord on 15 February, 2011, 08:16:27 pm
No worries matey! I tend not to do layout with pencils, (simply because my scanner was busted for so long, I got out of the habit), if I need a sketch to paint on I usually do some random scribbling or use http://al.chemy.org/ . It's also a lot faster.

No reason why you can't paint/colour in PS,  most do I imagine? It works pretty much the same as painter as far as I can see - layers, blending etc. Similar techniques aswell depending on wehter you are preserving the line work or going for a more realistic rendering.

Quite often use an analogue watercolour wash scanned in as a 'linear burn' or 'soft light' blend to get depth in skintones, then work into that with line tools.
Anyway I appear to have 'cried you a river'... just try stuff out, no rules! :)

I'm completely in awe of that kind of texture work you've got going on there Neil. It really is just beyond me. When it comes to colour, I can do little more than blocking in areas of flat colour and that's about it. Nice striking image too, reminds me of something out of David Lynch's Dune.
Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?

Thanks Chris, I think using flat colour effectively is a lot tougher, should suit your style of bonny tight, strong line work though?

I've recently been looking to get some good quality film posters or art prints to frame and hang on my walls to spruce up the flat, but from long hours of searching online, I have discovered that all of the really nice, classy prints I can find (like the cool ones they sell on Mondotees.com) are either massively expensive or unavailable. So yesterday, frustrated after another fruitless search, I thought: fuck it, I'm (sort of) an artist - I'll just make my own damn prints!

Here's my first sketch for a Predator piece - this is only part of it and it's very early days. Not sure how I'm going to finish it - I'd like it to have a sort of faux-screenprinted look when done, but I'm gonna play around with it a bit....

Only problem is that I'm not sure my girlfriend approves...

I was talking to her dad about the current issues of Imagine FX and Comic Heroes which have some interesting articles at the moment but due to some of the saucy images in those I will copy some relevant pages instead. While I was most pleased that they are teaching comics at her school I was upset and actually surprised that she doesn't know of any kids who read comics.

Ah, the problem of bare walls. I've been intending to do some illustrations for the flat but it has never happened. Nothing super hero or sci-fi mind you, but something more 'arty'. I like tons of this stuff http://www.gigposters.com/

Ooh, nice. So when you say 'screenprint', do you mean kind of Olly Moss poster style?

Not quite that minimalist, but I'm probably going to try a few different colour schemes and see what works. Ideally I want to limit myself to using only 2 or 3 colours and make it more 'postery' than my usual digi-painted style - maybe take something of the aesthetic of Tyler Stout's awesome screenprinted movie posters while keeping my usual drawing style.

Lee: Your composition of the characters is ace. You'd be amazed how many people overlook that as a vital piece of their image, (me included)


Neil: That pic has got to have a story to go along with it surely?

Radiator: You seem to have been gone for ages, you and Dave Hedmark, good to see your newest stuff. Can I make a colouring request/suggestion? I'd love to see that image painted in the colours of the predator vision, purples/greens etc.
It would be very psychedelic.

Just a quick stuff around ink + PS colour to break up the artwork I should be doing :P

Experimenting with some things. Also trying to calibrate my two monitors, fkn impossible it seams.

BTW I hope no one minds the stupid subject matter. I saw a bit of the 'Ultramarines' CGI movie, was pretty lame but gave me the urge to draw some space marines anyway! I did a quick ink of what SM armor would look like over 'correct' anatomy as well. I was surprised that it was alot closer to working then I ever gave credit for. I can post it up if anyones interested.

Markchilly, that is stunning and terrifying in equal measure! Astonishingly good, it disturbs me more than I can put into words (especially the nose and chin growths) but I am drawn repeatedly back to look at it again, only to repel myself once more. I am reminded of when I was a small child and used to flick through the bat pictures in my Dad's animal books and freak myself out.

First class work!

Doing something ABC Warriors-related for small press. I've got the whole thing sketched out, but I've just decided that I'm not too happy with it and it needs a bit more tinkering before I properly start. I should also probably work out how I'm going to actually draw them before I start, so here's what I did today. I feel more comfortable doing my own take on characters rather than try and emulate someone else's designs.

Radiator, you should be put in charge of action figure production for Rebellion. Your designs are so unique and this kind of style would make for a really cool set of figures. I don't want to use the word 'cute' because that sounds a bit naff, but there is something very endearing about the characters you draw. As figures, they would stand out from the crowd and, I reckon, sell. They could be like those old 'bendy figures' that had wires inside the rubber body, so the arms and legs could be posed. Imagine that Hammerstein was one of them, you could play with it for hours! Want!!!

Exilewood- Great to see you got a scanner at last. Your Ministry of Silly Walks style Dredd is amazing and you draw women very well.

Wooly- Wow! I want that on a t-shirt!

Chaingunchimp- Great tribute to those monosybllabic anti-heroes. Your Nem in particular is lush.

Radiator- I agree wih Van Dom, the Radiator vinyl toy range is a must!

Lee- Cracking stuff! Hats off to both you and Mr Christov.

Heh, that would be cool - I'm actually thinking of 'my' ABCs as being quite bendy - I hope this will lend them an expressiveness in the strip I'm doing. People tend to draw them as quite angular and detailed, but I'm trying to strip them down to the basics - they have so much personality that I don't see them as '100% robot' if you see what I mean...

Finished it! I quite like the colour scheme I ended up with - only 5 colours in all - but it would be very easy to produce different-coloured versions.

Would some of you lovely ink monkeys have a think about having a go at some of the Jikan pages on the Genre for Japan thread? The more original artwork we can get, the more we may make on the auction. Doubling (or even more) up on pages is fine, and we also need a "cover image." Any takers?

Droids especially will make the package more attractive to bidders :)

That's a fantastic piece Chris. It's a character I've always been fond of - I remember looking at my big brother's old annuals (Lion, Tiger, Valiant etc) I was too small to read the stories, but always recognised Robot Archie!

Thanks chaps. Robot Archie is a bit of a design classic - still looks as good today as he did 60 years ago. Don't think I've ever read any of the old strips, but he's always looked the absolute business.

A couple of years ago I did a picture of an updated Dredd costume. We all know Dredd doesn’t need updating, but I thought why not try and draw a costume that some one could wear in the real world. For some reason I have allays had trouble with Dredds shoulder pads as they are in the comic, I just can't work out either how they stay on or how he moves in them.

Alex - of all the steampunk images I've seen that looks the most like it could have happened. I think it's because you have moving people burred like in an old photograph and the styles of the housing and fashions all seem right. People often forget about the face fur on the men for example or put make up on the women...

Neil - I like how you do a cross over between the starry background and Hellboy's legs in that pic.

That's a cool Rogue pic Flip-r. In fact seeing him with the pistol brought back a cover I'm sure Cam kennedy did back in the 80's. I think it might have been the storyline when Gunner was re-gened and Rogue was reduced to using a kick ass pistol. Think i'll have a hunt for the issue for a re- read.

Good stuff, Grimm!

Here's a birthday card I recently made for my girlfriend. What can I say - she likes dogs...

(http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k26/radiator_2006/Birthday_Dogs_low.jpg)

Despite appearences, it's all digitally coloured, using some nice watercolour and pencil crayon Photoshop brushes I downloaded - I wanted it to have a handmade feel.

The watercolour look is really convincing Radiator.

Alex - thanks! I've done some internal illos too - close up portraits of each character. It's just a sort of vanity publishing thing this american guy is writing, I think he's going to make it availabel for download as a pdf eventually.

Thanks! Glad you noticed, I wanted the Happy Birthday thing to be quite subtle, something you only noticed after a few seconds of looking, but was worried it might be a bit too subtle. On the actual printed card it's not obvious at first, but becomes clearer the further away you are viewing it from.

Special mentions to Alex for the marvelous steam-punk-era pic, and Radiator's birthday card (which is the first photoshop colouring i've seen that fooled me into thinking it was a real painting.) Nothing short of incredible!

I haven’t had much chance to potter around with my pen and paper recently but there is something I did for my brother who is just about the biggest Level 42 fan I know. Obviously derived from a photo as I doubt Mr King would have sat for me but my brother still loves it as it’s his favourite song.

All pen&ink,pencil, charcoal, chalk and big fat grey marker pen on A4.

I have to take my hat off to the staggering amount of talent I’ve seen in this topic as it inspires me to try and find more time and try to let my imagination take me wherever.

The characters for my Rogue Trooper/Rupert Bear entry in the art competition.
I thought I'd put them here as I think they look better as individual characters rather than in the finished piece.

Well in case you're wondering what happens to some of the art (well one peice in this case) that gets posted here he's the final fate of El Chvio's rather wonderful Old One Eye piece posted here a couple of weeks ago.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_YrqDf9DfKks/TbLU2IM5fmI/AAAAAAAAAg8/wRMACH5LdqU/s512/oldoneeye.jpg)

Hope he doesn't mind me posting this as it arrived this morning and in between running around with my little I've not had time to decide where I want this to live finally. So just a quick, slightly blurry picture of it next to the reason I really wanted to get my hands on this... after all if I can't get an original Sola this has got to be the next best thing!

Sorry I don't own a scanner so I can't present this in all its glory to do it the justice it deserves.

Title: Re: Does my Art look big in this?

Yeh, it's A3
Originally did the pencils then scanned it & inked in MangaStudio (for the Weekly TAB)
When Colin said he was interested in having it, inked it 'old skool' & letratoned it (Wot a mission! Thank God for MangaStudio & computer  cheating, that's all i can say!)
All part of the service tho!  :)

My entry for TAB - Ignore the crappy art - I genuinely feel affronted by the over sexification of Anderson at points. Only because 2000ad is a comic blissfully free of stereotype - and sometimes we have Anderson's pout and nipples stuffed down our throats.

...and I mean, ignoring everything else, HOW DO NIPPLES POKE THROUGH LEATHER?

Well, firstly you've got to ask how cold it is? Quality of leather? Size/strength of nipple?

Yes, that is an awesome page alright - but the rest of the strip is even better!
I've now created a thread about this little project of ours in the Books and Comics forum.

Jim - those crossbar I's are a pesky little thing, aren't they! I'll be honest and say I'd never even noticed them (or paid attention to them)before I learned they were very, very bad. Now I can't help but look out for them!!! Had to get my editors hat on and ask crazyfoxmachine to fix a few  - but even I didn't notice the ones you and Shark just pointed out! Doh!

Hi all
I've been looking at the Weekly TAB of Doctor Who and decided to contribute but I’m not too sure how I go about it.

Do I have to join somewhere?

Would any of you kind ladies or gentlemen care to post this on my behalf?

Obviously it’s Davros minus all the pipes and wires. I just thought he’s be a good subject to practice some pen work and in light of the Doctor WTF topic the Curious Who by CrazyFoxMachine I thought it might interest some of you.

Thanks for all your comments and especially Chris for you know what.

Flip it was originally sketched out and had some shading work done on my new Wacom and various software packages but  in the end I had to print off what I’d done in a4 and then penned it all in by hand. Finally went over it with numerous pencils from grey to white.

It took about four hours and if I ever did get the fantastic experience of drawing a whole strip in this style it would be a fantastically long experience. 
If anyone has any ideas that would suit my style your more than welcome to contact me.

Again thanks for the comments, such things really spur me on and inspire me to try harder. I wrote elsewhere here that my art took a bit of a 20 odd year hiatus and these recent months I’ve taken to reacquaint myself with past skills. As may be obvious I’ve concentrated on the head and face lately and drawn with a medium I’m really proficient with.

As for a blog Pauul , it’ll be in the pipeline at some point I’ve no doubt but I don’t have enough work I’m happy with to start such a thing. I’ll keep popping stuff on here and I’ll try to contribute to the weekly TAB when I’ve enough time. All I’ll ask in return is some honest thoughts, criticisms etc.
 
I feel slightly abashed that I’ve not really commented on others work here so far. I will try harder.

Love the new picture as always Neil. You never fail to imbue a sense mystery and foreboding in you darker images.
Seeing your work and many other’s here (but mainly yours) has constantly encouraged me.
A pencil work here, borrowed heavily from Boris Karloff the original inspiration for the man himself, I present Kano.

I will make a copy and pen this in at some point.

The drawing of Thor in, conjunction with the coloring, makes it appear to sort of leap off the page. It reminds me of some of Jack Kirby's work on Captain America. Very excellent in my humble opinion.

Very good. I like that you've made all the tatoos blue. Much as I like the comics art, I sometimes feel a bit miffed when I see those black paint/tattoos over the eyes! He's supposed to be celtic*. Not a native American!** BLUE WOAD! (Actually I think it was the picts who were renowned for that, but I think other Celtic people in ancient times used the woad too.)

Yeah, I know. A silly thing to be irritated about as we don't know they didn't use any black, and he is a fantasy character, and supposed to be more a precursor of the historical celts, or some-such.  And to be fair, it is a fearsome look.

*or pre-celtic...

**Not that they all did that, but I think some of them did.

Brilliant, Johnny! Very menacing, getting a cool old-school horror comic vibe off that one. Could be right out of Scream! Have you ever drawn a horror strip? I think you'd do a good job of it based on that one image!

I recently brewed a Top Dog Stout so it obviously had to have Johnny Alpha on the label.
I started to draw a new Alpha pic but gave up and used this one I did ages ago instead.

It them occurred to me it might fit in (sort of?)with this weeks TAB of Professors and Doctors.

The Weekly TAB has really got it going on this last week. I tried to get round to Moriarty but rather than lose out on a week show I turned Sherlock Holmes' (he's there with Watson in the hand) adversary to non other than that no good American mysterio, Edgar Allen Poe. What a fight that would be.

(http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/261447_10150214400932602_591547601_7250073_3512794_n.jpg)


Yes, its lazily executed but the idea is sound. Get this *;

"Sherlock Holmes and his trusty assistant, Watson find themselves struggling through a web of darkness when called upon to investigate a trail of murdered writers. Each, young talented but penniless writer found, neck sliced and missing the odd story. This tawdry path soon leads to the crooked and mysterious house of Usher, upon where they meet the sinister E.A.Poe."

Ooh, I see where you're going with that, though IF I did have your exceptional talent and skill, I would put her eyeshadow, same colour, staying with the dot tone, with smoother gradient as a pose to the cut out and take it to the top corner of her apparent eyebrow. This might set her eyes alight. This may not.

Already an engaging piece anyway.

Scratch that maybe. It may soften them too much. I have to watch smudge control!

Just curious if your artwork is digital or physical art as it doesnt look as if it is digital.

Also the Neil Ford artwork shows a positive aspect of digital art with the cross hatching effect that would be difficult and time consuming if it done with ink on paper.

Thanks for your generous comments.

Everything is physically drawn, every pencil line, every pen line, every chalk or charcoal line. I start off with a pencil image and then all the shading and shaping is layered on with various knick-knacks, smudge sticks and fingers etc.
 
Very often I scan it, crop it if needed and then print off and continue work on that copy.

If I think it needs it I might take through PS to tweak here and there.

Finally go at with various ink pens, pencils, grey-white pencils…and a sharp eraser!

Time consuming and there are more failures stuffed into the folder of shame than I’d care to elaborate on, most of them for Van Dom at the moment! (we will get there).

But i'm not proud so here is a dud. This just ain't right. Supposed to be Wallbanger

My new blog...

Hello all, I don't sketch enough and I've been really bad at learning to draw, so, to combat those TWO problems, I have a new blog:

http://drawingundertheinfluence.posterous.com (I wanted 'undertheinfluence' but it was taken...bah!)

Anyhue, I do a sketch inspired by, drawn in the style of, or, straight out copied/altered/whatever by an artist or artists and then sort of describe why / how / what I know about them. Here's todays:
(http://s3.amazonaws.com/files.posterous.com/drawingundertheinfluence/U52rnerTmMF9k1vMrhQXUjLu4hQQ5N5qkC5DkeNvMXXShPMlYNUn1iZGwOuf/rackham.jpg.scaled.1000.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJFZAE65UYRT34AOQ&Expires=1310255058&Signature=%2FoWo9O%2FEuvqc4y1ddWHn8elU4wQ%3D)
(Hopefully that image will display, if not, pop along to the blog.)

Definitely welcome comments about the art and, better, about the artists I'm talking about - or even suggestions of people to look at.

Anyhue, hope you like it!

I offered to do a free sketch for the 300th person to 'like' my illustrator page on FB (in a spot of shameless self-promotion). The fan in question was a Polish lady who asked for a picture of 'Zly', or the 'Man with the white eyes' (as the book is known in Britain). From what I could gather, he was a sort of bad-ass post WWII outlaw type. Anyway, without reading the novel, here's what I cam up with:

About a month ago I started work on a new Walking Wounded story, the first page started brightly then trailed off into disappointment. I always get artistic bloc from disappointment so it took a wile for me to revisit the page and have a second crack.

Looks good, but I'd move anyone's faces off the dead centre line, you'll - at best - end up with a weird looking face and - at worst, lose a chunk of face - depending on where it sits in the comic.

(And for fun, you'll be able to make him smile or frown everytime you open / close the comic... http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A35977918 )

Post by: mygrimmbrother on 07 August, 2011, 12:17:28 pm
Thanks Malicious, it's a pencil drawing, darkened in photoshop, then I added 3 or 4 separate layers to gradually build up the tones, smudging them to achieve a sort of watercolour effect. Then I threw on a texture layer - piece of paper stained with tea and coffee, colour burn set at about 50-60% opacity. Last thing I did was flatten it and give it that reddy hue. It's a fairly new approach for me, one I've been trying out on some character sketches for a new strip, but I'm actually really enjoying working straight over the pencils and not inking for a change.

Grim - working good for you man. I know James jean does a similar thing but he has at least one layer where he blurs the pencil. Gives his work that ethereal feel.

Yes you are correct. Lance got blasted in the first Terminator movie, cut in half by the Alien Queen (though technically he was a droid or artificial human  and "survived", only he was written out of the next one by Sigourneys ego )
And died in the first Aliens vs Predator film as Charles Weyland of what is presumably the forerunner of the Weyland Yutani mega-corp.

Corking Joker there. Have you shown DC or Marvel your portfolio?



Yes and no. I showed my folio to Shelley Bond (DC/Vertigo) last year at Bristol and she was impressed enough to ask me to submit character sheets for books that she edited.  The thing is, I only showed my folio because I was there, was currently working in comics, and felt like I should show my folio because I could.  The reality was that I simply didn't have the time to follow up with the character sheets.  When I did have the time, I felt like I'd left it too long to avoid looking like an arsehole and just moved on to my next gig instead.

My Marvel story is even worse: An editor there got in touch and asked me to submit a folio that he could forward to the talent team, as he was interested in working with me.  Unbelievably, this was the same day that I'd already called bullshit on CB Cebulski's "artists should be in it for the love of the medium, not the money" gubbins, on twitter (for those who don't know, CB heads up the talent team).  I like to console myself with the thought that my folio was simply shit, rather than the other way that this tale of woe could go.  :D

I'm not that fussed about either, to be honest.  Yes, it'd be nice to work for the big two- in the same way that it'd be nice to work for 2000ad one day- but comics aren't the be all and end all.  I'm happy to fit them in around other stuff- but until I become independently wealthy, or until publishers are ready to pay what the job is worth, I'm happy to potter along at them in my spare time.

Technically, as I've never actually chased a comic job, I've yet to feel the pain and suffering of rejection.  I'm sure it's only a matter of time though...  :D

Oh man. I hate to be that guy but ol' Lance was in Alien3, just not as the android Bishop.

He actually played both. Well, technically he played Android Bishop's head and was kinda gooey.

Edit- Actually, I might be wrong. The head might have been entirely prosthetic, but I think they did a similar thing as the rebooted Ash in Alien (i.e. poked his head through a doohickey, made him spew yoghurt, etc, etc.) He played AB's voice anyway.  :lol:

Ah, Chris & Shark - thank you so much!

I had tried the image tags.....but admit I left the "/" out - which explains my fumblings.

Anyway......here it is:

I thought I'd continue my stark B&W pics (after my Doctor Who lot) with a few movie icons

This is a preview of some art I have done for a comic called Sugar Glider Stories (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sugar-Glider-Comics/151370661553515) which is coming out later this year. I have Lee Grice to thank for this. :)

That's really nice Staticgirl - I've been meaning to check out Sugar Glider after the small press panel at Bristol - you've just reminded me to buy some! Do you have a link or email where I can buy back issues? Facebook just befuddles me, all those likes and posts and walls and stuff!

Staci, those panels are really nice. They covey a sense of longing which is hopefully what it's menat to do. There is something about the pose of the figures and the nice use of leaves breaking the panel boarder...

Also, is that The Doctor and Amy on the bus?

Forgive the use of a link but I have some new pages up at;

Grand pages from staticgirl and on Danbells blog (nice version of the "A girl in every port" story Danbell I was so intrigued I tracked it down on the millarworld forum, and it is a interesting and unusual story).

Classic stuff from NeilFord. It's almost like looking at character actors.

They are actually 2 panels from 2 different pages but putting them together like that tells its own little story which I didn't realise when I did it...

You can buy issue one of Sugar Glider and Sugar Glider Stories here:

Oh and I've started my new comic to tell the story of what happened after the baddies were blown up....

I love the idea that potential victims may well be more concerned with the comb-over before the teeth. But that's the mechanism, isn't it? Distraction?

Thanks Alex! :)

@Krombasher - the comeover is the haircut of the desperate and dammned. A man with a comeover is capable of  anything. Except growing hair on top of his head of course. And women. Meeting women is tough too.
