    bye-bye bump

    Some pages probably from around the end of last year. Recently I've been doing some specific work, whereas this is exercise, keeping fit between ideas!

    Not sure if it sheds any light or is in any way instructive of my process, but it all starts out as a blue line sketch, which I trace off with onto standard tracing paper with a Staedtler pigment liner. I use the 005 nib, so drawing straight over the sketch would destroy the line when erasing- hence the tracing paper. I bin the blue lines though; the inked stuff is where I learn most.

    Anyway, for Mrs. Salaryman they look like the crazy doodles of a mad man, for me they're stuck down in an A4 sketchbook as ref for future ideas and finished pieces.

    Hope you guys find them of interest!

    Dayum! Another day, another amazing artist to worship. Your line work is beautiful and you've got such great variety in your faces. That page of animals is choice too. Is any of this stuff ref work or is it all from your imagination. Post more now dammit!!!

    Oh yeah, where do you work, if you don't mind me asking?

    Nooooo salary, I can not belive that you think they lack style.You can not imagine how I will love have your style.And the best is not your style is your skill to make us belive that your worlds with this characters exist and this is for me the most important those characters you draw they have a life.

    amazing linework. it has probably already been talked about, but what kind of pens do you use when you ink these figures? do you ink them right from the blueline, or do they go through another stage of tracing first?

    it's coming, it's coming....

    I was wanting to get something finished together, but that's not going to happen any time shortly, so a few more sketches (you know, dragoneers and heads and speech balloons etc) sooooon....

    alas, for now, no. 2 in an occasional series.....

    bye-bye bump

    evidence : here you go (sorry about the scan) tools
    I'll normally go straight from the blue line to the tracing. On a personal note, I rub the tracing paper down with my palm a few times, the pen line comes out even finer (yeah, yeah, greasy salaryman hands...).

    KhenU : who knows, that's be great, but I'm not sure there'd be enough interest. Cheers for the support sir!

    camilografix, shyamshriram, tensai, mr. Point, you're all crazy! but soon!

    Arri, thanks, that means a great deal. I'd like to think there's a whole background to these characters that people can see, or even add their own.

    here's a heads up for CA.org-er rsly75, he's put together a blog catering for info on character design, in a moment of madness he included me on there. Sketches and interviews galore, ignore my contribution and check out some fantastic character work: characterdesign.blogspot

    cheers

    I'm still subscribed too your scrumptious updates!
    Great interview, makes me happier about the art industry, less nervous about my chosen degree.
    Take care.

    pentel makes blue lead? I've been using their red 0.5mm but the blessing and curse is how brittle it is. I'm forced to keep my hand lighter, which gives more graceful lines at the expense of energy.
