Man, I should update more often!
Alright, so three things – first is this Moleskine doodle of Squire Thorn pretending he’s in some synthy type band. I don’t remember how it came about, but I thought it was cute enough to post. Here he is standing behind a Klorg, or is a Klorc? I think it started out with drawing him with his hair short. Considering his height, I probably should have drawn the synth a little higher.
But anyway, Thorn knows nothing of these synth instruments. I could probably pair this with the drawing of Helen. Hm, Helen performing with a Squire?
Speaking of Squires, I’m slowly finishing up on a new Mini comic. Check out the first panel. Nothing good can come out of that, huh? Just look at Squire C’s know-it-all expression and the look of confusion on little Thorn.
I had one problem inking these past few days. My brush pens were running out of juice. It gave me a great excuse to take a trip to the art supply store. Of course, my luck all the individual brush pens in black were GONE. My only option – buy a set of these, which was fine anyway. I’ll just have to remember to ink a comic a different color each time!
So while I was at the art store, I picked up a small bottle of acrylic medium. I wanted to get familiar with gel transfers again. I’ve got this really old French dictionary with really awesome illustrations. If you’ve seen the avatar I use on my Twitter page, that’s where it came from. I thought I’d use some of those images to transfer onto my Moleskines. Using a very small amount of medium, I was able to transfer a photocopied image onto one of the pages without getting it too wet and wrinkly. Fun times, and really cool results. I’ll post a few scans of them soon!
