New Profile Pic

I like drawing green monster boys. Did this one as quickly as I could, on the digital.

Bat Boy

I’ve not been playing with the blog for a while, and something got broken. I’ve fixed that, and backed everything up, I think, so here’s another post! If this makes it to Instagram, I will be very happy.

Digital Cattery

By in cats, color, digital, sketches

I’m getting more cosy with the digital tools; painting on the computer. Still, I want to be more disciplined, and paint things that would look good in a portfolio. That means doing things with an eye towards pleasing people, rather than whatever strangeness comes out of my head. It’s difficult to explain. I can draw […]

Spiky Hair

By in color, digital, men

I’m afraid I’m avoiding watercolours by drawing things such as this. He’s sort of true to this drawing software, which started life out as “Manga Studio.”

Puddle Brush Cat

By in digital

I’m a little embarrassed that I’ve not been posting here in a long while, and I almost lost the blog to some sort of server issue, so I got the blog back, and I thought I should post something. Here it is.

Scattered Brush

By in color, digital

Digital painting still isn’t coming easy to me, but I’m happy with the look I can get when I applied “scatter” to my usual drawing brush. I don’t even have to delete the underlying lines. Just paint over them. And this has got a pleasing chalk-like effect to me. So different from my usual watercolour. […]

Digital Peeps

By in digital

I think the airbrushy style is a good complement to my still wiggly digital painting. Looking for something that’s slightly attractive, though maybe I should stick to watercolour and ink. Doesn’t stop me from trying, but the cat is doing her best to discourage me, by leaping up and bunting the stylus as I try […]

Digital Bizness

By in color, digital

The one on the left is actually a lady. But I think I gave her too much jaw. May fix that, because it is digital, after all.

The Savage Yard!

By in brush pen, comics, digital

A comic by me, Jack Ruttan. Computer colours, this time. Seems like digital is much slower, and much more reliant on know-how than watercolours are, which are sort of in my bones. Still working on the work flow! Of course, what a person thinks about this who grew up with digital and has trouble with […]

A Comic. By Me.

By in color, comics, digital, watercolor

Life has been tough, lately, and I’ve not been doing some things I should have been doing. I don’t know if comics is one of them, but lots of illustrators are doing them. And if I call myself a writer/slash illustrator, then that’s a natural. But it’s not very renumerative. I started drawing digitally, got […]

Digital and Traditional Sketchbook Pages

By in color, digital, sketches

I messed with both digital and traditional (as it’s called) sketchbook pages today. The traditional pages, compiled into books, are more organised. The digital ones are everywhere, squirreled into cryptic files, over two computers. There’s a tiny bit of digital here, anyhow!

Another Mopey-Looking Guy….

By in digital, men

….drawn while I was watching something else. Seems to be where my mind goes to when you set it into “neutral.” I wonder why?
