Children and Safety

By in Uncategorized

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.

Some More Painting

By in cats, sketches, women

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. […]

More Cats, and Star Trek People

By in cats, men, sketches, women

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 […]

Hiyo! It’s the Orpah Show

By in watercolour

Not sure what to say about this, except it was a bit of work. I described this strip to a twitter friend, now I’ve forgotten her name. Will try to look back and find her.

Lazy Blog Post

By in men, sketches, women

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 […]

Dropped Dip Pen

By in ruttan's place, watercolour

This always happens when I drop one of those dip pens. It sticks into the floor like a dagger in an Indiana Jones movie. Bye bye nice nib!

Spoons

By in ruttan's place

My friend once used a spoon at my place, and remarked about it. She told me they were better quality than I imagined, and could look much nicer. I hadn’t thought much about them. They were grimy old spoons that I’d been using for ages, which I had taken with me to Montreal from my […]

Cat Poop Collector

By in Uncategorized

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 […]

Watercolour Baby and Other Things.

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour

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.

Gotta pay more attention to landscapes and backgrounds. Also practicing with the “Pen Tool.”

Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

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 […]
