After the skeleton stage, I sketch using drawing pencils. Most of my artwork is 50% sketching and 50% erasing. When I am satisfied with the sketch, I trace it using a drawing pen. What you see above is the pen portion of this equation. At this point I am basically committing myself to my drawing and layout decisions. The only thing that changes after this is purely cosmetic. The outline, shading, shadowing, and color.
I give you doggy sketches but that is all. My Patrons get much more info. They get an Interesting Comment that tells them what the heck is going on here. For one dollar per month, you can make that happen. I am told that my Interesting Comments are quite witty and urbane.
Did the cover art for Flint Comix and Entertainment #62. Black ink and Photoshop color. On sale now at newsstands everywhere! Well, not exactly “On sale”,… they’re free. And, not exactly “now”, it might be a few days before you can find it. Actually, “everywhere” may be a little bit misleading. Let’s say the Genesee County area. Otherwise, “at newsstands”.
Fluffy was a good dog. He was just…a little bit misunderstood.
Another scratch pad design for the goofy dog lover.
