    Stay calm, please.
    I redrew a panel from this old, insane, comic (page 2, panel 2).

    Blurry photos of in-progress bits:

    Edited to add: I have ... no idea where I'm going with this yet.

    Not knowing where you're going is the first step toward getting somewhere interesting.

    I'm actually pretty happy with a lot of this, especially since I've never really painted before (virtual or otherwise), so I've been figuring out how to blend the colours on the 'canvas' and shading and such as I go, but I'm damned if I'm not completely stuck on her face.

    Thanks Mojoking!

    So my wife Jane just made the B-squad team of the Killamazoo Derby Darlins roller derby team, and being the design dork that I am, I am handling her "branding needs". She skates under the name "Rocket Hips" and her number is #321 (blast off!). Wanted to make sure I covered all of the possible needs for the logo system.

    @Richard Pace holy cow that is awesome sir
    @mojokingbee That second-to-last dude puts me in mind of Ronald Searle. A very good thing.
    @Paul Sizer Sooo cuuuute! Though the flat number text on the helmet cries out for a bit of distortion to show the form.

    I'm just starting to recover from last month - I went to three cons in two weekends, then spent two weeks dealing with the concrud. This spring's Seattle variety involves whooping cough, ugh.

    I've got two books coming out this year - my own comic, and an anthology I'm pulling some friends together to to. I seem to have accidentally started to set up a specialty SF/fantasy comics press. So of course it needs a logo. Which still needs some work (especially on black) but I like where it's going.

    This was originally going to be a quickie to test out the Drawscribe plugin over an old sketch but I turned out to prefer AI's standard pencil tool to its variant. And then did half of this in the pen tool.

    And of course I'm still doing that comic about the robot lady with reality troubles. It's one of the two books I mentioned above, and is midway through its Kickstarter campaign. If I get enough pledges then I'll be able to print it with some spot gloss, which should be totally sweet.

    Tonight I tried sketching in chalk, working fast, mostly because I was frustrated and sort of angry. This excellent model was patient with me. We worked late, and near the end she slept a bit.


    I both do and don't like these. They are raw materials. Something can be made out of them, but they aren't themselves yet.


    I'm breaking myself into pieces by degrees crumbling color onto paper in the reflected skin of all of these beautiful women.

    Nice technique, Bill; all of the undercolor does help to give the skin the feel of luminosity that allows to you to see veins and makes it have an inner "glow". It's also doing nice things to reinforce the volumetric feel of the limbs in a subtle way. Any imperfections are pretty minor in contrast. Thanks for sharing!
