Expressive Watercolour painting, experimenting with blue and purple hue gestural painting to create a expression with colour.
Wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I experimented with the mark making and keeping the approach more simple by fusing on the drawing. I wanted to keep the integrity of tin my illustrations. It seems that my scribbles and gestural marks has more energy and brings the narrative alive. I am still developing a style of narrative, I think I am getting better making my own comics. I also think most of my drawing has a charm about it and the calligraphy brush ink drawing make more charming. I used off white background, the same tone as my sketchbook.
Anyway I am really excited for Christmas and to enjoy this christmas season.
I wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Tuesday: Continue Sketching Characters Expressions for New Comic
I resumed sketching my characters expressions and action for next comic pages. where Lance is being caught sneaking into Doctor Dresser’s Study room. I continue to use watercolour pencils and pens. Adding water to make the colours blend.
Now i am further developing the comic pages, by refining the panels and actions. I traced most of the sketchbook drawings using tracing paper and re-fined the characters. I enjoy this process of creating comics, it is fun. i am beginning to develop a visual style, Most comic artist spend hour in their studio drawing comics. I do not have a studio, i do my comic work in the library. My local Library is quiet, small. I have space and a place to really concentrate doing work. Plus i can read or borrow books. Recently i have being reading a Mills and Boon romantic book. There is large collections of Mills and Boon in most Library. I really enjoy reading Romantic books as well as Horror and Teen fiction.
I hope to complete the next pages by the end of this week. I might bring my ink pots and brushes with me to the library, if i am allowed.
Young Girl in Pink Kimono
Yesterday I went to my local library to relax and do doodle drawings on my hand made A4 Sketchbook. I was doodling characters for my new comic I am recently working on. I used my Watercolour pencil’s to sketch the character. Also the Watercolour pencils can blended with touch of water. The medium is close to a watercolour paint effect which great for adding tone or washes. It is very good medium for me to quickly use without the fuss with using watercolour paint all the time. The comic is primarily drawn with inks and watercolour. I almost complete 4 pages but I am still experimenting the visual style with ink and watercolour on this new comic.
