I went a little insane figuring out how to add the tone, but hope I’ve learned something. In the meantime, enjoy the comic. I hope to do more of these “casual” comics in the future, because I’ve got a notebook full of stories, and the full-dress style takes a long time.
The digital thing is frustrating, because of all the switches you have to throw (if you start working on the wrong layer, then you’re lost). Also, I keep losing brushes I like. In Photoshop, those are collections of settings and sometimes an image. This can all be solved, but it’s a learning curve for me. […]
My sketches have become a little more, um, “sketchy” since I’ve been on this digital art kick. Still drawing, however, and the books are filling up with pencil drawings, actually drawing in all kinds of media, since it really doesn’t matter if I can mess with the lines and colours. So, I’ve been enjoying my […]
I’m behind on things, also wasting time on facebook. Still drawing, but not blogging as much as I might. Well, here are some things. First of all, I’m messing around with the “Gaussian Blur” and figuring out what it takes to paint things over a loose pencil drawing in photoshop: It’s from a tacky source […]

I attempt to explain the cat poop collector, a device which has puzzled me this week. No, you don’t get to know what’s wrong with my cat. It’s disgusting, but not fatal, and I hope will be cleared up with a couple of pills, soon. UPDATE: The cat poop collector failed completely. I brought it […]
Actually painted a portrait of somebody’s baby the other week. Looked nothing like this one, who was just practice for baby paintings. Can’t show the portrait, because it hasn’t been given to the recipient yet. Then there’s this freaky smiling guy, again rendered in good old-fashioned watercolour.
These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]
