The sketch journal adventures continue. In this spread, I draw lots of birds:
Fun with ink slinging. Brush pens versus ink quill:
Drew the Gutter Magic protagonist in my sketch journal while talking about modern magic stories. ( paging @rdouek )
And pastel crayons. Yes, @Abrill3448 that's you.
Sketching in INK! Holy shit, this was brave...
The original marker shading on paper in case you're curious:
And fortune favors the bold. Marker shading done in a light purple matched with ultramarine. BETTAR THAN GRAY.
Added some rim lights in good ol' fashioned white (like in any marker drawing). I think we have a winner!
Slightly tweaked the colors and changed the highlighting a little to not be so paintery. Looks better:
More futzing with live markers and digital colors. Lesson learned: Shading with gray is stupid. Never do it.
It's late and I need sleep. Throwing this quick marker/digital test out there for your consideration:
Facial study I took home from class and polished up because drawing good faces is a POINT OF PRIDE for me
Okay, so I don't know squat about painting an environment from scratch, but I don't suck at drawing one.
The tweeps have spoken. Logo design 4 wins by a landslide (I was leaning towards it too) you guys rock! #logodesign
Okay, hand-lettering logo nerds, I'm throwing this to you. Which font do you like better for an urban fantasy story?
@NextElementPod sorry this is a little late, but here's your Speedball!
@jyrenb @CJohnsonart because I love your page today:
Reworked the look of that last sketch in full color. Looks good. Really pops. Really captures the look I'm aiming for.
Quickie ink/market drawing to demonstrate loose inks, test out marker shading. It's got issues, but it's a start.
Weird shit you find in LA at midnight: DragonballZ soda
