so if you’ve been reading along in our casablanca/tmnt mashup, the story continues here
or you could start here. which was kind of where we started, but its not the beginning of the movie.
mostly we skipped around to the parts where we could make pizza jokes.
the photo here is one of the sketches for this strip
and if you haven’t seen casablanca you should stop reading this right now, go watch it, and then come back and read these. you’ll get twice as many jokes. maybe more
doodled with colored pencils and ink pen on lunch break by the lake a month or more ago
i remember hating them at the time
but now i kind of like them
did i already post these?
haven’t made many comics lately but I’m still drawing
here’s a sketch of the neighbors house
here’s a few from the sketchbook
one brush pen
a couple colored pencil
the colored pencil ones inspired by an episode of American pickers
love that show
maybe the most important part of doing the strip is figuring out the timing
when trying to do that my sketches can look more like the diagrams you see in the top half of the page
then comes figuring out the props like the chair you see in the bottom half of the page
I also need to figure out the main poses
here you can see I really had trouble with that left leg
see it all come together
for the last few months i’ve felt pretty energized, creatively speaking
(i’d been reading lynda barry’s syllabus, and i think that gave me quite a bit of fuel and confidence, both)
for the last few weeks my creative juices are feeling lower
i havent been putting out as many strips this month, and for some reason they’ve seemed harder to come by
i can only hope i’m in just a seasonal artistic funk
so this one is from the sketchbook
i’m not sure what to do with little moments like these, since they have dialogue and only feature one panel, which don’t seem to fit the rules i’ve created for myself here
in the meantime you can scroll through all of the ‘steps’ strips here
A quick video tour of a likeness sketcbook I started back in August 2017.
I’m filling it with five minute (approximately) drawings of celebs from photo reference, typically done on their birthday.
Some are loose and recognizable, some are loose and unrecognizable, and some are just stiff and shitty.
