So at some point I stopped taking photos because the process felt the same. Here’s one special panel. I enjoyed this because there was so many lights intersecting and of different types, and since it’s night – I feel like it’s more open to interpretation. This is the painter/film maker in me. I spent the majority of the time for this page on this panel, layering colours. With the fraying edges and texture, this turned out great with ink.
Post pertaining to my comics or other comics I link to. This will included complete and in-progress work.
And because I enjoy science and photography, here’s some really cool science photography. Check out his images of butterfly wings! Did you know butterfly wings are made up of scales? I did, but only because I played with some butterfly wings to find flakes fell off of them.
This is going to be one of those posts that looks like there’s nothing to see from the thumbnail – it’s a pencils post!
I can’t bring myself to figure out how this was made, and in this case, that makes the work more whimsical and mysterious. That’s rare in a world where everything seems to have an explanation…but I suspect 3D printing.
Here’s pretty much the final image before the tape comes off. The difference is probably harder to see now, so you gotta zoom in. The panel is a multi-action panel with a passage of time. There is limbs flailing everywhere. Hopefully, this has a sense of darkness and panic. The red is symbolic of blood, because he did sustain some injury and it works with the general theme of the comic: aplastic anemia. There’s is going to be many blood related imagery in this comic.
This is an “exercise” collaboration I am doing with my best artist friend person, Natasha Petras. It’s a comic strip project where the narrative is driven by sound effects while simultaneously being completely abstract. I’m using sepia ink here, which has a different effect. I coloured this in Photoshop using masking layers.
Here’s the tumblr post. I suggest follow me or carryalaser if you’re interested in keeping track of this project. We’re thinking of potentially printing this in a little book…maybe selling it at a comic con (stay tuned?).
