This is a snapshot of another project I’m working on.

Ruby-scape

JRD was suggesting to me that I post a series of images taken from the Ruby Departed notebook. Sounds like a great idea, but there’s really not that many images in the notebook. :/

This is the illustration I did for the Flash Pulp 73, Ruby Departed: Neighbours three parter. It’s actually modeled after a very specific location in Ottawa, Canada.



That stuff I was talking about….

I spent some time yesterday working on the Red King. I wanted to paint it using watercolour, but I ended up using Photoshop instead. I get really nervous about painting works that I’m especially proud of. You can’t un-paint something, and I get anxious that I’ll screw up and ruin my original. Because of my anxiety, I rarely follow through with painting and that’s kinda sad. 😦

Like I said, however, I REALLY wanted to colour this image using watercolour. So I decided to be proactive and learn how to make watercolour effects using Photoshop. I found a great tutorial on how to set up textured paper/brushes, etc. Check it out if you’re interested.

I haven’t finished the colouring yet, but I’m pleased with the way it’s turning out. Enjoy the sneak peek!

Working On The Next Skinner Co.

I decided to photograph the various stages of creating today’s Skinner Co .

If you’d like to see the whole comic, head over to flashpulp.com

I work with five layers in adobe photoshop.

      • The bottom layer is a white background.
      • The second layer is the text box where I write the memo.
      • Layer three is the the line that separates the comic from the text box and the website/copyright info.
      • The fourth layer is the colour, but only work on this layer when the last layer is done.
      • The top layer is the rough sketch/ink layer. I draw the concept of the comic, then fix up the lines as I go.

Family. Honor. Duty.

Looks like it’s about time for another ASoIaF post!

I drew this with House Tully in mind.

Hearts Are Tough

Most hearts don’t break. They only bend.

Mmmm…Stairs

This is a little drawing I did of my son Darwin. He’s actually two now, and doesn’t try to bite everything anymore. They grow up so fast *sniffle*

The Eagle Owl Has (Not) Landed

Hi people. I’ve been sick so I haven’t been doing very much in the last few days. Sorry for the pause in posting, but as an apology, please accept this lovely drawing of an owl. Hoot.
