    Fatcat is adorable! The work in your last three posts makes me remember the good ol' days when I was having fun with picture books. Good stuff! The colour studies are pretty cool as well. Well done

    When in doubt, run and shout.

    I definitely feel you going in a different direction with these squid, although I don'y know what that might be. Maybe children's stories or something. I think you've done a similar series before but I can't be sure. Perhaps you should try a little animation of the cat in CS3. That'd be cooooooool!

    Thank you guys Yeah, pics were definitely made with a younger audience in mind. Well, they were made with editors for books aimed at a younger audience in mind, to be more precise

    cout - I've found that thinking in terms of key frames often makes for good cartooning. I'm glad you sort of picked up on that

    Here's a page from my moleskine. Preparatory sketches done with graphite and colored pencils. Cut 'n' paste due do difficult lighting - basically had to light the page from two angles, then sloppily merge for acceptable value / hue replication.

    Hey Mr. Monk, cranking out awesome work as always i see. Thanks for that Cthulhu walkthrough on the last page. I can get lost in your penwork for hours. I always leave here feeling lazy, so thanks for constantly kicking my ass, makes me strive to work harder.
    These last couple of posts are neat too, i love your ability to switch between styles and always look confident doing so.

    Always a pleasure to be here, can't wait to see more!

    Thank you very much, guys

    Been busy with work and stuff, but here are some sketches I did in preparation for a personal christmas card project. The idea is to create a fairly simple basic motif, trace that onto a bunch of pre-cut cards, ink an watercolorize them all (using this set of initial sketches as a rough guide) - and voilą, hand-made christmas cards!

    It's a nice idea, I think - but time-consuming. So, most likely I'll stick to the motif with no background...if I'm at all able to go through with this. But still, these test / variations were fun to do.

    In addition to ink and watercolor, I used white crayons for masking off areas. Oh, and sandpaper. And a knife.

    Nice series, and hard to pick a favorite. For masking off areas: There used to be this rubbery, transparent liquid in art stores that could be peeled off afterwards. Ever tried it? Sounds like something you could enjoy.

    Yeah, masking fluid - the destroyer of brushes and paper surfaces! I prefer it over masking tape, but I find it almost as treacherous as far as tearing is concerned. It's a precise tool, though, and would probably be a far better choice for the christmas cards. I should order some.

    Masking with crayons is a hit-and-miss kinda thing, and can result in some interesting textures. The following color illo was done with ink and watercolors...I painted in the fox and butterfly first, added a crayon mask, and then did the two background washes + forrest details.

    The portrait is all inkwork.

    I adore your cartooning and watercolor application! Definitely seems like something I'd want on a birthday or xmas card someday. Great work!

    Sealed the charcoal and pastel sketch with some acrylic medium, slapped on some acrylic paint. The active surface is approx 3,5x3 inches.

    The spread is from my sketchbook. That's where I get my ideas from.

    Pastel on cardboard + process. Approximately A4 sized. Didn't bother with proper white balancing until the later stages of the work, which explains the differences in color temperature. The process shots should be fairly self-explanatory.

    Awesome series of process shots on this last piece dude, where it started and where it ended are almost 2 complete different ideas, but in the end you wound up with a much stronger piece. I also really dig that you're constantly making up environments, i really need to get into that habit.

    Great work as always, you're my CA hero! Thanks for always keeping my brain turning.

    An 8-page long comic, done for a norwegian magazine. It's been a while since i worked with sequentials, so it was something of a struggle. Still, fun to do
