drew this while watching ‘one planet’ on netflix.
trying to get faster (and looser, obviously) with watercolor so i’m going to keep doing more of these tv sketches and keep dropping my standards
(tv sketch definition: sketch done while the tv is on)
havent been making comics but i have been reading them. writer nick spencer has the amazing spider-man on track again which has got me doodling spidey
but i’m scared to ink and color them
working digitally i can screw up the colors on a separate layer and the drawing itself is still intact
same with inking
you can see it on the screen capture timelapses
if i don’t place a dot of ink in just the right spot and just the right size i undo it
over and over and over again
until i get it right
its one of the reasons i’m more productive working digitally
its nice to not have to live very long with your mistakes –
no such luxury pushing watercolors and inks around in real life
i just kept drawing since i was never happy with the result. I’m still not happy – but deadlines.
added some watercolor to some of the rejected versions because i should learn watercolor too probably.

Late New Years Res: try to post a celebrity caricature on their birthday.
Well, waddaya want for the first one?
Here’s another shot at inking and coloring a peanut Spidey in Freehand.
First the sketch.
Then the inked and colored version.
The linework feels more lively than my previous example, but I don’t know if Spidey feels very peanut-y anymore, though.
Just finished reading:
This is the first Tintin story I’ve ever read; and it really blew my hair back. Though this collection is black and white, I’ve seen color samples of Herge’s strip and they’re just beautiful.
In fact, don’t this;
seem to have a lot in common? (You can check out my previous post on this piece here.)
And so far, this link is the best look at Herge‘s process that I’ve found.
