    Hey everybody!

    Parsakoira: Thanks!
    NickyBeats: Thanks! I wish I had more time. Those POWs are really fun.
    Beelow: Thanks! I think it's going to be a while till the book comes out. I'm doing the last of the art right now but we still have a lot of corrections and editing to do. But as soon as it does come out I'm going to be screaming about it from the tree tops!


    I did this this afternoon while watching "My Name is Earl".

    Thanks Mike!

    here's a few pencil sketches I was doing yesterday off the internet. I was using a colored pencil but just a black one, nothing fancy.

    Love the inks, so fluid and confident! I got a question though, when you mix ink and watercolor, do you do the watercolor first, then ink? I've tried watercolor on top of ink and it wets the ink and smears it around. Just wondering if you somehow work your watercolor on top of your ink. I guess inking on top of a watercolor painting gives you better judgment of where to make your strokes though?

    NickyBeats: Thanks man! I'm trying. I got a week or two to post as much as I can before I got to get back to working like crazy.
    Kielbasa: Most of the time I ink first and then watercolor on top. I usually ink with Speedball Super Black India Ink. Its waterproof once it's dry so it doesn't bleed. The only problem that ever gives me is that sometimes if the watercolor is applied thick it lightens up the ink lines. Inking on top of watercolor is hard for me because it kind of paints me into a corner (AWESOME PUN INTENDED) and limits the decisions I can make with the line.

    Here's a thing I did tonight that I think turned out OK. Acrylic with a little bit of ink on top.

    Mr.Skoda, Can you give a color recipe / process for mixing a sunny day sky? The middle tone is one I am having a really hard time mixing / washing. Its either too green or too blue. Any advice? Thanks

    MonkeYoakum: I don't really have a formula for the way that I mix colors. If a color looks too green then I make a color mix with less green. Usually when I'm doing sky colors I don't even try to match the blue of the sky I just try to make it a color that feels right or at least looks interesting. The problem with the sky is that it's actually emitting light and your paper is probably not going to emit light (just reflect it) so it's impossible to truly match the color. You kind of have to come up with something that just expresses the idea of "skyness".

    I hope that helps. I wish I had some more specif tips you.

    Honestly, I think that is the best advice you could give. It's a crutch to think that there is a right way to render the sky, or an orange or a table and in the end the painting is left with no mood. So I went outside, I looked at the sky and tried to get it right. Basically it wasn't "green" enough. But yeah, you have been and continue to be a huge inspiration. Thanks for all the advice you've handed out, its given me a much greater appreciation and drive to succeed in using, the craft. The craft being water color. yah. Thanks

    thedestroyer: Thanks!
    hücumkedi: Thanks! I've gotten a lot of people tell me they like that one and I can't figure out why.
    Velocity Kendall: Iggy did all the hard work on that one.

    This weekend they announced my new job! I'm going to be the main artist on B.P.R.D. For those who aren't in the know, BPRD is the organization that Hellboy used to work for. And now I'm drawing it! Go me!

    Here's some art that I did for the announcement. It was colored by the AMAZING Dave Stewart.
