Just some digital warmup sketches I want to share. The first one I did not finish and both are just quick ones done completely from imagination. Technically done using a Wacom Cintiq and Adobe Photoshop.
While trying out my new software Clip Studio Paint EX I did a quick blueline sketch of Supergirl. And because I really like how the dynamics in original sketch art look like I tried to capture some of the dynamics by directly doing the inks over the layouts.
I like some of the results and probably will stick to this approach when working on sequentials. In comics everything is about dynamics… so I think this will work. What do you think? Would you read a comic with this kind of style or do your prefer a more “traditional clean” look?
I had to create some new digital pencils and inking tools in photoshop today and after reading about a live action movie about Captain Future in the works I had to test the new digital tools on a fast piece of the Captain… the hero of my childhood.
I’m not so happy with the inking tools I have created yet, but the pencils (which you can’t see here) are working great!
I wanted to color this too but the kids got sick again and I have to finish some more important stuff today also… so you get the B&W version only. 24 hours a day is never enough!
Can’t wait to see the Captain in action again and this time not as an anime!
Don’t forget to send me your character sketch suggestions (see last post!) for a chance to see my interpretation of your favorite character.
