"Dakota Rawhide" (update in OG Post June.18th.2009)
UPDATE!! June 18th
So, for those that will be at the San Diego Comic Con in July, look for me to be in front of this banner at booth #5357... and there you will be able to pick up your copy of "Dakota Rawhide, Book 1"!!
Have I posted in the FF section yet this year? I'm not sure if I have or not... Anyway... It's finally finished! For a fair amount of moons now, I have been writing the first in a series of short stories based around a character I created: Dakota "Rawhide" Tayler; an interstellar outlaw and an underground fashion designer. The first story is complete in written form and will also be accompanied by sketches scattered throughout the pages, adding to the mood and narrative. Book 1 will be available first at San Diego Comic Con in July, so mark on your calendars, come down to the Gaslamp district and pick yourself up a copy! Really, it's hard to go wrong with interstellar cowboys/girls So! Here is the cover for Book 1!
And these are three paintings I did for my friend's album. They are all watercolor on wood panel, using Liquitex Clear Gesso as a base... good times
Well, that's it for now!
Oh wait! I will have a several-page preview of "Dakota Rawhide, book1" online soon, so stay tunes, and I'll keep you posted. Okay, that's it!

Great watercolors, excellent drawings skills. I have never used that Liquitex Gesso for watercolor, do you always use that to prepare the surface?

Man I am loving your guitar paintings, the splashes and blobs of watercolour really adds to the texture! How did you do the outlines for those pieces? They look a bit digital? but I could be wrong.
Btw, just a quick question, I'm new here, and I was wondering how I could add a thumbnail to my forum thread? Thanks!

Jay!! What's up homie! What're you up to these days? Glad you're diggin' the work And yeah, Space-Westerns are teh win!!
ArtofJin & Badaboom: The process I employed for the first two watercolors was as follows-
- I first put a very thin layer of normal gesso on the wood panel, just to give a lighter ground to draw on. Then I drew the image with Prismacolor Black pencil and put a pretty thick coat of workable fixatif over it. I then put a couple fairly thick layers of Liquitex Clear Gesso (it is very absorbent and has a really nice tooth, so it works well for watercolors). I then sanded it down a little with 400grit sandpaper and watercolored away!
- for the third piece, I did the same thing, but without the white gesso because I wanted the wood grain to show on the guitar, since his guitar is a PRS Semi Hollow-body that is unpainted, so you just see the naked wood... so it fit
So no, no digital involved in these at all except to take pictures. Hope that helps!
ArtofJin: just add little image as an attachment to the first post in your thread and it will automatically turn it into your thumbnail... I think it doesn't work if the image is too large, but I could be mistaken.
