    Graphic novel drawings.

    I did these more recently with a writer who hasn't been in contact for a month. (Hence the blank spaces for text that remain blank. Bah.) I used a quill pen and tone screens that were made from online patterns and clear mailing labels. They were cleaned up by a third person who I believe uses paintshop.... not sure.

    Let me know what your think. In the future I'd like to continue playing with this writer or not.

    The textures are nice, but the narrative is confusing (even if I imagine the text) and the large blank spaces filled with texture don't really add anything. Also, the majority of your human figures have serious anatomy issues, except for the mouth and chin in the lower right corner - that bit is leaps and bounds above the other areas in terms of anatomical skill.

    the textures are cool, I think the first page works well, second one I am a bit lost, I premuse It is two different characters Guy at sink and guy shooting up. To me the style has a certain graphic element I like but the design of face of the guy with the jacket over his shoulder is a bit weak and the image of the guy shooting up a bit unclear
    I would suggest looking at Fank Miller's sin city and Mike Mignola's hell boy and black hole by charles burns

    all using mainly black and white (ok hell boy is colour but black used as a graphic element) to create strong visual images

    Batman black and white vol 1 and 2 are worth referencing as it features a few different artists so you can see different styles, also take a look at a few b+w films as well, photographs as well.

    I bought family values just after drawing this

    Recently I found a good comic store not too far away and I bought one of the Sin City books IMMEDIATELY. I really found it to be beautifully drawn even in it's grotesque moments. (The story was fantastic as well, just all around good)

    Thanks for the advice!
