    Quick question: I would like to share my work but as I don't have a scanner/printer, what should I do? Camera's suck because all I can do is pencils (I can ink, but it's wretched, and I STILL can't color in the lines in coloring books) and the lighting in the room ruins the pic.

    Mojo, I am so in love with your art.

    And gods, what a gorgeous Wonder Woman. Have you considered doing Big Barda? I think you'd have fun with her.

    @DBed; Those pages are coming out brilliantly.

    @Ryan S Thomason; Those are going to make some awesome prints.

    @Clarkthehomonculus; You will find a variety of different methods over the years. I would say the best suggestion on the limited amount of information that you provided about your situation is use what you got. Go outside (evening or morning), don't be in direct sunlight and take a photo of your art. No one is going to shake a walker at you for wanting to share your art and your means aren't crisp scanned papers.

    @Clarkthehomunculus - if you have the GIMP you might be able to turn your lines into something more visible using Colours > Threshold. It's not the most subtle of effects, but if you play with it a bit you might have some luck. Just remembered: Colours > Curves might be more suited for separating pencil lines from the background.
    @Jack - Thanks!

    @oldhat...hmm, will have to learn how to draw Barda.

    Phew, it's been awhile! Here's awhile doodles I've been doing as of late. Most of them are all process work for a comic which I hope to have the first chapter done at the end of March...

    Holy shit, Mojo... I've never had any interest at all in Wonder Woman until now. I would read/ watch the shit out of that version. It speaks a LOT of her character as you see it and I like what you see in her.

    Accidentally posted this in the January thread then wondered why it was SO SLOW for two days before I realized why. Anyways...

    Did this in a moleskin, so it's a little bit dirty, and there's plenty of pencil slop under the ink that I didn't dare erase, since the paper doesn't really soak up the ink from the fine pen work, and if I did try I'd end up erasing the ink too.

    And another moleskin drawing...because monsters. I'll probably be throwing a lot of this sort of thing in here over the next few weeks...

    I wanted to submit this to the Bakterev Remake/Remodel, but would someone like to help me out with inks and color?

    Edit: of course credit will be shared. I just don't think it's good enough for the R/R yet.

    Not dead, just very busy.
    Recent commission work.
    Continuing the kick ass women theme here...
    EDITED to fix wonky sword shape.

    Nice stuff, everyone!
  9.  (11004.16)
    Mr Sizer -- I always love to see your art on here, but with this piece I find myself trying to figure out the sword. It looks like it twists where it gets wider. Am I just sleep deprived and can't see the right perspective?
      CommentAuthorPaul Sizer
    • CommentTimeMar 10th 2013 edited
    No, you are not incorrect; I'm going back in to correct it. It seemed right at the time, but it's been bugging me as well.

    EDITED: Sword is less wonky now. Thanks for the crit, Warped!
  10.  (11004.18)
    No problem. Looks better but still a bit off... It looks like, for lack of a better description, the bottom half of the sword is more narrow at the hilt and is wider at the tip, which makes it look like the blade is angled toward the ground at the hilt but the at the tip the flat of the blade is facing the viewer.
    Does that make sense?
    (Other version: The line in the middle of the sword is parallel to the top line of the sword but the bottom line is slightly askew.)

    That being said, I'm not an artist and therefore feel like I shouldn't really be saying anything...

    Bull! Objective viewpoints are what good artists actually need to get better. And I agree; this is a tricky vantage point, with the flat of the blade having a center ridge, and coming to a sharp edge side to side. The only other thing I could do would be to angle the reflections along the angle of the blade. Hmmm, maybe I'll take another swing at it.
