"When the Time Comes" - Ink on Bristol w/ Digital Colors
I’m quite happy with how this turned out! It was very difficult forcing myself to keep to a limited palette instead of picking “daylight colors” and the entire color wheel but I think I did okay. Also, Tropic of the Sea by Satoshi Kon really got me even more excited about mermaids and I read it right before making this comic so there was definitely inspiration. Check out that book if you can because the way he inks and tones water is mind-blowing.
I drew my witchsona today instead of hourly comics :> He’s a scruffy genderqueer who doesn’t give a crap about people’s expectations for anything, be it his gender or even his magical craft. He can do some healing magic but doesn’t really like to talk about it. His hair and feet are filthy, he walks around barefoot everywhere and prefers the indoors. His crow practically lives on his head and his kitty is a grey sphynx. I imagine he forgets to cut his hair for months or even years at a time, and it often ends up down to his chest. He wears lip gloss for no one but himself.
One panel from a small folded paper comic I just made :> Might take photos of the actual comic when I make them. I had fun drawing the cherubim, if you can tell it’s a cherubim. I tried to add as many detail elements that the description of a cherubim has into that circle but not everything is shown. According to the description there is a human head facing forward, and a lion, ox, and eagle head facing the other directions, and they’re studded with eyes and have four wings and it’s cray.
Got really excited about a story idea today and blabbed about it to frenz and boyf and sketched it on the train ignoring the fact that I cannot focus on a fixed point on moving vehicles of transportation (no reading, no writing, no drawing) without feeling sick so by the time I was putting in the window I felt like I was about to burffff. Worth it.
A very Happy Birthday to my dearest and oldest friend, Hika! I thought it was appropriate to draw Jorne Nighthawk since he’s pretty much just as old as our friendship and he’s changed a lot, too!
We’ve known each other for eleven years now, and seen each other grow from wee bab middle schoolers to the adults (?) we are today. You’re a very special person to me and I cherish all the memories we have shared thus far! And cheers to many more years to come! I hope you have a splendid birthday, and a happy new year! :> ♥
Pages 1~4 out of 8 of an adaptation I did of H.G. Wells’ short story Country of the Blind.
Just gonna post this first half since I find it to be the more interesting half. This ends on a turning point and the last four pages are about him settling in and falling in love with a woman. What happens to him later I guess you could find out by reading it :D It’s quite an interesting read, but it was definitely challenging to condense 23 pages worth of content into just 8 pages. Things take a lot longer to progress and make more sense thus in the original story, so my version is almost like an odd summarized abstraction of Country of the Blind. I also used my broken brush pen (I cut the bristles on it once cuz I’m a crazy man) to ink this all the way through and while it was lots of fun I am going back to nib inking for my next comic.
