    some more

    here is what i came up with when i tried doing a mountain landscape in ink.


    i wanted to do some disney characters so here is a couple of goes at the little mermaid (i had more but i can't find them)


    I also wanted to do some sebastion but i was supposed to be studying rocks so i combined both with the bottom pic.


    And when i wanted to do some water study it was flounder's turn


    some monkey studing that is leading into...


    ...me developing my own characters: meet Lars ro Canter (and that is a two strand tail, people, not what you are thinking *L*)



    And an inking page that is very slowly getting done.


    I hope that will do for an update for now.
    I promisse to post more regularly.*S* C&C on anything is always helpful.*S* Ta.

    cartooning time!

    So i made some of my previous pictures a little bit bigger cause they looked like icons when i first posted them.

    Speaking of which, you know those wyle e. coyote pics? Well they were for a kid at my swimming school that has special needs. So i decided to colour them. I am told he really liked them but what he saw (and took with him *L*) were just prelimirary colour studies. So unfortunately i cannot show them to you cause i did not scan them before he got his hands on them. *L* I will make sure i scan my final go at them so i can show you guys.

    Anyway, turns out that i am really loving drawing in that style, and since i did not have any books on cartooning (too many other serious art books in my library... blllargh!!) i went out and bought myself 3 *S*.

    The first drawing that i did was a copy of a drawing in the book.

    Along with the books, because i had enjoyed colouring in also, i bought myself a set of 12 pastel pencils from Faber-Castell and an extra 5 Letraset Tria Pentone markers (i could not decide) to add to the 6 i already had. The above drawing is done with the markers.

    The strange thing is my gf asked me "where did you see those colours? they are pretty good." I said "oh i copied them from the book that is all". But she insisted that she really liked them (she loves colours *S*) so i had to find the drawing to show it to her that i just copied the colours. I found the drawing... but it was in pencil with no colours. I thought "hmmmm, they must have reproduced them somewhere else with colour". So i looked in the covers and even in the other book that i bought that was by the same author. Nothing. It is the weirdest thing, pretty cool, but still very weird. Before looking for the drawing i would have sworn and bet money on the fact that i copied the colours as well. *shrughs* Go figure.

    To lead into the next post you can see very light pencils of another character from the book which was a fox. I was going to draw my gf as a fox so i wanted just a feel for the animal. And then i did another light drawing of a fox from the front, and that is just under the labourer.

    a fox of a fox!!

    After those first tries at doing a fox i did one more basic one (1) and then dived straight into a colour one (2). I emailed that to her while she was at work and she said it did not look a lot like her (people these days, seriously!*L*).

    Anyway pictures (3) and (4) in the above page were my final attempts at making her into a realistic fox, and were done after the photo tracings and drawings in the page below.



    Sorry about the confusion.*S* After all of that the next drawing kinda just poped out without too much thinking (or cleanup). It's a bit blurry cause the markers really bled in the cheap paper.


    Later in the night, while still on a high from all the cartooning during the day, i was watching lost and did these two.





    Hope you guys like them!*S* More soon hopefully.

    we continue... NOT!

    It has taken me quite a while to get back to this, but i have been busy. Not the least with drawings but i never have any time to get them scanned and put them up.*S*

    just some practice cartooning sketches from the very wonderfull Christopher Hart series of books.

















    and a couple of asterix practices too!

    an inked page!

    Pencils by David Yardin, inks by PJ (that would be me).

    Sorry about taking the pages doen but i think the link offers better res at geocities than at photobucket (unless of course i don't know what i am doing).

    http://www.geocities.com/comixnut/recent_inks.htm

    let's see if that works for real.

    Last edited by comixnut; August 28th, 2005 at 07:05 AM. Reason: putting them in order with better res hopefully!

    hey thanks ppl!

    Thank you for having a look but most of all, for your words. You know i have noticed that this board is extremely good at giving crits and helpful advise AND keeping it positive with really good vibes. I have yet to see something nasty and i hope it remains that way.

    Anyway i was mentioning that because i have been having some problems visualizing and constructing some drawings and maybe i could get some help here. I really need to get me one of those support groups you guys got going!*S*

    Odds - i don't know if i made it clear (sorry i am used to just talking to comic book people who already know what i do)... those pencils are not mine (HA i wish!), they are from a guy called David Yardin. I only tried to lay some inks over his stuff. By the way i really was running out of time when i replied in your thread but i really liked it. I haven't seen nearly all of it but i have subscribed now so i can keep up with it! *S*

    Goog - *LOL* if you thought that was weird you should check the link out and see the 'licking scene'. Don't say i didn't warn you though! *L*

    ahead of what's to come...

    ... i'll simply post a couple of pages i've inked recently. I'll hopefully be posting a few more soon.

    How do you guys change your title so it says updates?

    and keep your eyes out for my first attempt at acrylics. It sounds like fun.

    Hello there. Great job on the inks. I guess you have spent a couple of moments on them. You've improved a lot since you started this thread. Will definately come here again.

    stuff for inking porfolio

    These are just little depictions of me that i did for the pages separating the different sections.

    The first is to welcome the onlooker:





    the second was to let you into the inks bit;





    the third was for those inks that were not finished;





    Again i hope you like!

    Hey a question for you. What tools do you use with your ink jobs? My problem with inking is that the line always look flat and not really "organic".

    The answer is...

    ... i use whatever works, that's what i have always been told. But in my case, i started off with markers, then moved on to nibs and these days i use brush most of the time. I have a really good Raphael one that came with my Kubert course, then the "industry standard" Windsor & Newton series 7 #1, #2 and #3 but i really love my chinese water brush called "the outstanding drawing brush" from willsquills.com.

    Hope that helps. Hey did you hear? The socceroos just made it into the World Cup! Bloody Champions!! *L*

    Hey there. Great job on that pin-up thingy. I especially like the way you've inked the hair. Would like to see more of "your own" drawings. Have you tried inking with photoshop?

    There is something not quite right, i think, with my inks. Any C&C to help me figure it out would be awesome!
