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.
