Why, hello there! Totally broke my biweekly updatage rate, yeah?
Been reeeeally busy taking care of my graduation project but it's FINALLY DONE!
Presented it november 24th and had the party already on the same week on 27th haha.
Now that I can finally work on my personal projects, so I'm doing that.
First and foremost, a comic for the yearly polish anthology I contribute to Pirat, now on the third installment. It's a children story, contrary to the almost pornographic one I had last time around.
Still laying grays on them, but should be done in the next few days or so.
The style is like a half breed of disney comics and dragon ball. Or that's just me who sees it that way haha.
Here are some gray versions I cooked up:
Below is the final logo for my project. It's basiclaly identical to the cover of it too. I was a retarded and forgot to take pictures of the book itself before handing them to the orientors. It's a 62 pager thing, all thick and well printed. Probably on a january update?
It was drawn with a brush, and colored in PS as per usual.
Below are some revisiting on old characters. I won't get into their stories because they are kind of bland, but I liked the final result. Tried using only brushes and washes on them for a change of pace.
Randy, the lost king.
Football Ninja, the one-orc-army bandit.
Hoodie Knight. It's actually a chick below all that cloth and steel, but people can't tell due to the metallic voice.
Communist Rollerbabe. She was the theme of my 2009's 24 Hour comic. (read here: http://img196.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=64412167.jpg I'm not sure the images in here stil lwork though.. I had compiled it whe nI posted on deviantart back then).
Each yeah, for a close relative's birthday, such as my parents or grandmothers, I present them with a portrait. Now, last october, my brother, the last in line got his, and my parents DEMANDED me to make one myself, since my birthday was closing in on November 14th (Yup, I'm 24 years old now), so I did it!
Lineart. Half breed here. Unipins for lines in general, but brush for the hair, I think it looks very natural like this.
Color version. I like trying to take my cellshades to extremes and represent the most amount of stuff with the same base technique. I'm really glad to achieve some sort of realism with it here. And YES, my face is reeeally oily- I mean, shiny.
And for last, but not least, some more illo works I've done monthly for Mundo Estranho magazine:
Richard Chase, the vampire of Sacramento
Drawn with pencils. This section allows me for experimenting, so each month I've been betting on a different technique.
Colors now. Softened cellshades.
Nannie Doss, the grinning granny.
This was reeeally interesting, for it being the first fully digital piece I've done in ages, since I bought my tablet. I found interesting mostly because I actually liked the result, contrary to my early attempts.
Keept tuned, I'm hoping for a last update still before 2011 knocks on my door!
