Project ADC-1: High Level Comic Book Plot V4

September 19, 2015

Comics, Writing

It didn’t feel that I’d given Benevolen enough time to camouflage himself inside the altar chamber so I’ve tried to pad out the scenes with the acolytes and Lady Umia. Also there was no reason for Kopath to be extra scary since I’m not going to get him to fight Benevolen.  So Kopath’s not a giant any more, just a menacing…

Project ADC-1: High Level Comic Book Plot V3

September 17, 2015

Comics, Writing

The original comic book plot did not reveal the things I wanted revealing about Sylen Benevolen so I’ve been reworking it.  Basically Benevolen is a stealth expert so I wanted to show some of his stealth capabilities. This is version 3: It is dusk, Captain Sylen Benevolen stands on a cliff edge with Iyeon his winged panther.  He is gazing…

September 13, 2015

Comics, Digital Art

I’ve been rolling ideas around inside my head and have settled upon a ruined steampunk factory as the site of the opening scene in my comic book project. The next task in my comic book project is to do a concept picture of the ruined steampunk factory.  My approach so far has been as follows: Gather reference images. Watch YouTube…

Project ADC-1: 11 September 2015

Project ADC-1 update. I’ve been changing my art process over the last 2 weeks and believe I’ve found a way to speed up without sacrificing too much quality: Skip the line drawing and go straight to painting. For the next 2 weeks of this Make An eComic project I will continue to focus on concept art. However my original estimate…

Winged Panther Digital Painting 1E

September 8, 2015

Digital Art

I’m done with my winged panther digital painting.  The background was done using Manga Studio’s water colour brush set at a really big brush size.  I also tried out the snap to grid feature when drawing in the gold border.  The total time taken was 5 hours, less than half the time of my previous picture so I think I…

Winged Panther Digital Painting 1D

September 7, 2015

Comics, Digital Art

I’ve given Iyeon the Winged Panther some more definition on his hind legs and also given him some armour.  The membrane of his wings now also has a redish tinge to it which I thought would look more natural – not sure when I last saw a winged panther in the wild though …

eComic Concept Art: Sylen Benevolen 2H

August 29, 2015

Comics, Digital Art

Added in the light tones, tidied up a bit and added a background with a brush tool set to watercolour. This picture has taken 14 hours in total due to me struggling with getting his legs right, changing my mind on him being topless to wearing a jacket and spending too long on the linework instead of getting straight down…

August 28, 2015

Comics

Project ADC-1 update. I’m still making an eComic. The last 2 weeks have been spent mainly on concept art and have shown me that this project is not going to plan. My digital art process is taking too long so I’m looking for ways to speed it up without losing too much quality. Work Completed During The Last 2 Weeks:…

eComic Concept Art: Sylen Benevolen 2F

August 24, 2015

Comics, Digital Art

After the blocking in of colour I’ve started adding in the shadows for my full body ecomic concept art picture of Benevolen. This picture has taken me 11 hours so far and has made me realise that my process is very inefficient.  I spent a lot of time adding details to the line drawing which is getting painted over anyway. I think what I…

Tried out a glazing technique where I applied acrylic paint in many translucent layers.
