Sparky/Alien 2

November 10, 2013

I decided to try another one, this time on white paper (the last one was on tan paper). I think overall I like using the tinted paper, then picking highlights out. It gives it a certain character that I like…sorta like an old comic on yellowed newsprint. But, aside from that, I think this came out pretty well. I’m still playing around with filters and find that I keep gravitating back to posterization. I think it’s for the same reason, where it looks something like old printed comic books, and it add in some texture that I find interesting.

new beginning in color

I decided that I should do a test color of this to get back in the groove of finishing one. I need to work on a few things, but I’m pretty happy with this. Now I’m really looking forward to messing around with this idea. I need to test doing this as a watercolor too, I’m thinking… so many options…

A new beginning

November 5, 2013

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything here for such an unbelievably long time. The upside is that I have actually been working on things here and there. I started a short-ish comic about a space traveling chicken that finds zombie aliens on a strange planet. I’ll get some of that posted soon. But while I’m working on finishing that, I had an idea that maybe I should resurrect my ‘Sparky’ character and add him into this story somehow. So, as I pondered that last night, I came up with this:

really looking forward to exploring where this might go…
