…And Doodles For All

July 22, 2011

I never go anywhere without my sketch book, as a result I end up showing quite a lot of people my doodles…

(ahem)

The results are quite mixed. People are either enthusiastic about them or they just go silent.

I recently finished a sketch book, ending a 6 month era and it got me thinking. What am I going to do with all of these books that I have finished? Leave them in a dark corner gathering dust or show them to people? Would anyone even want to see them?

I figure if I put them online at least people have the option of seeing them and it’s always nice when someone gets a kick out of my work.

Thusly, I shall be posting new and old doodles since I have a fair amount of material from not too long ago that I think is worth sharing.

Here are two to start off with..

Green Horror – Killer Cactus

April 14, 2011

This is my first entry to repaneled.

It comes from ‘Green Terror’, a great little horror story in which a jealous, murderous cactus kills pretty much everyone; two men (one moustached so had it coming) an innocent woman and even the itself!

Need I say more.

I started with a rough sketch then scanned it in and went over the lines with a blue brush tool in photoshop. The intention was to change the colour of the lines then digitally paint and colour it in a similar fashion to the original panel. However things took on a life of their own and I found myself doing something sligtly different and abstract. The great part was it didn’t take me that long to do (as opposed to a cover) as I worked straight off the sketch.

I wanted to get a kind of 1950’s feel with the colours and think I got it. I mean i’m never going to really know because I’ve never been to the 50’s. All I know is what i’ve seen in books or on TV…and seen in thrift shops.

Mmm Brains

December 21, 2010

I just finished a sketch book and have been sifting through it to see if there are any good ones I can improve. I’ve been doing this by brushing them/cleaning up, re-drawing lines or just digitally painting ontop. This is my first attempt:

I didn’t bother re-drawing the lines because it’s a pain and I like the roughness of the pencil. I would like to find a way to make digitally altered images look and feel more tangible.
