Doing a do-over of the 85-page The Sisters: Prelude for my self publishing class. Found out I could compress it all down to 16 pages. Man, that makes me wanna slap the shit outta foundation-year-me.
D’oh well. I’m doing the first pass of pencils right now and here’s the first 4 pages.
Man, this break’s been all over the place. I’m mostly working on doing a first pass of pencils on these 16 pages I’ve gotta do for Self-Publishing, but here’s what I’ve managed to bang out between all that.
Up top: I just got a Randomized Pokemon HeartGold ROM, so my starter pokemon was totally random, as is basically everything I encounter. So my starter was a Lairon and sweet jesus it’s adorable and I love it and I named it Penny. The trainer’s just a young version of Karrin (because itsa 10:30 and I’m tired). And I also caught a Poliwag.
Next up, Fig’s Bothan Mafioso for our sunday Star Wars: Edge of the Empire game.
Then a first pass of pencils of a Karrin page.
And lastly, the contenders in the final session of my thursday Gamma World group. I’m gonna end it in a giant Kaiju vs Jaeger fight, with each side controlling their fighter.
Early Mornin Work.
Just crankin stuff out after a little sleep. Up top is another character in my Star Wars: Edge of the Empire group. He’s a Nautolan Hired-Gun with a weird blaster-sword that totally doesn’t make him Squall from Final Fantasy.
On bottom is a WIP of a Karrin Klash page. I’ve gotta crank that one out by tomorrow for a pitch. I’ve gotta let my self-publishing teacher pick between a Sisters story or Karrin Klash for a project.
A Big Ol Dump.
I wanna sleep, so I’ll keep it brief. In order it goes:
Mothman sketches for a pitch.
Redrew another player’s Assassin Droid for the Star Wars tabletop.
Jordan’s main OC in a sailor uniform.
Some sample panels for a pitch.
Homework from caricature class.
Despite being 6am, I’m trying to block out some basic colors for some pieces I’d like to do.
Topleft: Harley and Ivy. I just started reading the New 52 Harley Quinn and sweet jesus I love it. It’s crime, but adorable crime, with puppies and stuff. And the fact these guys are basically canon now? Hot damn.
Top right: Quickie designs of the Scissor Blade from Kill La Kill. I wanna do something where they’re in that traditional tattoo style of daggers through skin or roses. Then maybe get that tattooed. Probably. We’ve got like 3-4 episodes left. Don’t fuck it up Trigger.
Bottom: Sabine from Star Wars: Rebels. Man does she seem like a badass and a half. A lady-mandalorian, who specializes in explosives and graffiti? Sign me up.
Connor and Dan.
Had to revamp these guys. The way they were written changed so the rest of em had to change as well.
Terra Nouva Inhabitants.
Just doodling some more background/recurring characters for Karrin Klash. Spitballin ideas and seeing what sticks.
Just winding down from a night of gouache with some doodles. I got my references from this blog right here. Definitely one of my favorites.
Been adding to this between coloring pages today. I’ll say I’m usually adverse to anime, especially super trope-ridden anime, but KLK? Hella awesome.
Making Use of Stolen Somethings.
The last preview page I posted ends on Karrin stealing a bunch of unknown, un-named somethings from Cynthia, The Trash Princess’ spire. Here’s part of the page right after that showcasing the fact that things like that are pretty canon. It’s still a very episodic comic, each page being its own adventure, but in a story about adventuring across a new earth, recurring wardrobes and inventories are a detriment.
Plus the meta-reason is that I got tired of drawing that sorta Jeep-grill armor Karrin had and those cat gloves. So I had her swipe a new sweater and some gauntlets, while Tommy got himself a fancy sledgehammer.
A Random Karrin Klash Page.
Just to remind ya’ll this is still a thing in progress, have a page I just finished.
So after The Green Lantern Animated Series left a gaping hole in my existence, I’ve decided to start reading the actual comics. So far I’m like 10 issues in to the regular Green Lantern and I’m likin’ it. Sure it could be a bit clearer, but hey, I’m just starting at the New 52. I’ll pick up Guardians and Corps when I catch up with the regular ones.
But yeah, I’m just doodlin the lanterns I found coolest so far and I’m pretty sure I don’t know any of their names.
Gotta do a Phillip Seymour Hoffman piece for a class, so I’m getting the desire to do something fun out of the way.
My SWTOR character, Fejee, Zabrak Bounty Hunter, and a doodle of Bigby from The Wolf Among Us. Attempting to use more painterly brushes, and failing miserably at it.
Just finished with the Green Lantern Animated Series, and for the most part I loved it. I screenshot’d my favorite designs and doodled em up as some sorta warm-up.
Someone needs to get on a second season.
