I tried coloring with gradients, and it turned out. dunno if it turned out good but it's not nearly as bad as I expected it to look. I was inspired by a lot of James Stokoe's stuff, he uses gradients all over the place and it looks rad.

What I did was singled out different parts of the guy with candy colors using the paint brush, then used the magic wand to select those parts and then used the gradient tool. Pretty simple. and fun too. Especially when I'm bobbing my head to this crazy Gorillaz collaboration jam.

Also, I made a portfolio blog to apply for this comics internship (which I did way late so I didn't get in(but that's okay, cause I'm still gonna work on my stuff))

There's some neat things on there, neat old things. Things that aren't on THIS blog.

PS. am I spelling gradient right?

Remember way back, I made a post a whole year ago on how I was drawing this Thor page? It's been sitting around penciled forever and between school, other things, and being just plain lazy ( and also afraid to let a drop of ink touch the page). I finally went at it.

There's something I'm not so proud of, like the rocks and cast shadows. And I didn't exactly hit the Walt Simonson style I really wanted to go for. But all in all this is probably the best comic art I got to date. Being it's on comic board and isn't a mindless doodle extracted from an index card.

Meat Can Rocket

Drew a panel from this Battle Angel Alita book I got from Goodwill. Drew it on an index card, scanned, blew up, inked, scanned, Manga Studio'd the action lines, posted on Blogger.

First time I used Manga Studio, it's nothing like Photoshop at all.

I idly drew this on a notecard when I should've been doing something important. The whole day this notecard was staring at me and yelling "finish me! finish me!"
What is it is some fanart of the reboot of Rob Liefeld's Prophet by Brandon Graham, Simon Roy, and Richard Ballerman (can't find a website???). It's a pretty sweet book and it looks like it's going to some interesting places. It's about an "Astronaut" that's been asleep underground for a real long time, that surfaces with some kind of orders and a job to do possibly 10,000 years in the future from his time. It's a strange earth with mushroom men, 6-legged carnivore goats, and feral wolves with brain parasites. It's been described as Conan in the future, which inspired my drawing. It's only 3 bucks and it's 22 pages with no ads. Best money I've spent in awhile.
Anyway, here's the finished colored drawing. What I had in mind was Conan lurking through a cave or cult temple with a luscious babe behind him. (there's boobies)

Here's just the black, which I did entirely with a brush.

and here's the notecard drawing (and some other neat ones I have laying around on my desk), that I scanned and blew up to ink the above drawing.

Hourly Comics Day

I didn't know this was a thing? I'm gonna start updating here so I stop spamming the Internet.
