The Game

On 24 hour comic book day I did these pages here. I didn't stay the whole time. This is sort of an introduction to the Board Game...

Happy Halloween by the way!

This is my second pen-&-ink illustration for class. The project was to create a composite (like a movie poster for example) of a happy or bad memory. I chose a happy memory of when my family and I went to Namibia, Africa. That's us in the car with Oropoko lodge in the background.I went for a much simpler, stylized look for this one.
(possibly a color version on the way)

Some head drawings from Heads & Hands class, first one is 40 min, second 60 min.

The start of a painting from fig.painting class. Unfortunately we couldn't finish it, but there is something about this sketch I like, so I kept it.

Captain Fish

Alright guys, it's time for my first Illustration from my Illustration 1 class. The Assignment was a person in a room drawn in pen and ink, and I had to use a fish. So I came up with Captain Fish. He's a pirate-alchemist searching the seven corners of the earth for the Fish of Immortality. His last name is also Fish, haven't figured out his first name yet.

Anyways, for those interested I'm posting progress shots so you can learn too! :D

First I did thumbnails for the composition, but I don't have them at the moment. Then I sketched out the drawing with pencil on Smooth Bristol paper, with as much details as possible so it would be easier to ink.

Here I'm starting to ink it. I'm inking with a crowquill and real ink!

After I do all the outlines I pick up my other pens and start doing textures and even finer details.

When all the inking is complete I take some water and put little bit of ink in it, that will create a sort of grey wash that I can paint over areas I want darker. I used it to push the background further away so the figure is more of a focal point. I also did fiffed up some stuff with the wash too... And before you know it you're done!

Below is the final:

In Progress

Some in progress homework...
