Well, I’m headed back into my co-op, which means I’ll have plenty of time for art stuff again. Throughout the semester, I’ve been slowly acquiring textures, brushes, reference stuff, and even a new tablet (an LE1700 tablet PC), so it’s nice to finally put that stuff into practice a little.
This is an old sketch I decided to ink and color; for inking I used Sketchbook Pro on the LE1700, then imported it to Photoshop on my Macbook and did colors with my primary tablet. I like the result a good bit; this is the sort of style I’m aiming for, albeit not as sloppy and maybe more detailed. Such standards have pretty much killed the chances of me ever being successful at a long form comic, but I still hope to do short ones at some point. Right now though, straight up illustration (hell, just calling it drawing) is interesting me the most.
