It has been a very tense week. I was involved in a Animation project and it made me discouraged about my drawing abilities a little.You need to step back and let yourself doodle for fun. I actually really like this and I shaded up to almost 10 minutes on the dress and boots. And the support of great friends always cheers me upand motivated!
I feel I haven’t drawn in a while so just having a wee practise of poses. Of course I use my favourite Herion to get back into the swing of things!
A sneak peek of page 21 that feature the elements of the Spiritual Forest… The physical comic is in progress.Air
Exciting news, I am very close to getting Spirit Leaves Part 2 done. Just need to letter the pages and edit. I was hoping I could request a creative favour from you! I was hoping to include some artwork from fans and other artists. I would love to see your adaption of the the main characters or create your own demon/ spirit. I wanna put the artwork in the book and have you credited of course!
If you are interested then just ping a message me and my email details is on my About page. Nothing too fancy, you can be simple with black and white or colourful. You can draw one character or the whole cast… it is up to you.
JPEG or PDF Files. Resolution 200-300 and the deadline is 7th of Feb. Also if people need some reference of the characters I can post some pages up.
Cheers so much!
Last week I hosted a Comics Class at the CCA in Glasgow. I would say the impressive and large amounts of works produced proved that the class was a success and hope the kids got a lot out of it. The first half hour is always a little slow and dry but once you explain your work and show examples they can produce outstanding results. Ranging from ages of 8 -14 I had one or two fans who knew my work. Is always surreal and so flatterd when you meet people and kids who respond to your work postiviely ( one of the girls was actually called Freya which was so odd but cool! )
Most parents left to do their Xmas shopping for a few hours but a few stayed and contributed to the class, the feedback from them was great…you always have to win the folks over!
One of the parents tweeted about me…so far so good
That will probably be my last session on workshops and classes for a while as I move to Canada next month but that sure was a boost. Selling a few comics and an original page from SL was bought too.
Freya and I with a signed copy of SL…she was so lovely!
Seeing my work in the CCA was pretty darn cool too.
This has been the longest page to colour, taking 8 hours to do… but nearly there with the series!
Only 21 more pages to go…
