Weekly Book Wrap Up

oops 2 books behind my goal, I tend not to read when I am sick oddly enough lol I don't want to have to concentrate when sick.

Saga, Volume 6Saga, Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

MUCH better than the last volume. The story moves at a good pace, jumping forward in time really helped this story. The art style as usual suits the story perfectly, the characters are well drawn and the action panels look great. I love all of the colour. Looking forward to the next collected issues.

Cute Dragon Finished?

I think I am finished with this dragon for the moment. Yes I could spend days on him but I need to do some more research for uni and teach myself to use Adobe Muse and Mudbox (another 3D program). Lots of learning to do and try not to pass out from coughing.

I would spend more time on his feet but for the moment they will work. It is easy enough to come back to it in the future when inspiration kicks in.

I like how he looks from the back. Simple, but still register as being a type of dragon.

And a side view. I need to start adding bases to these so they don't look like they are floating in the air. Up next with the 3D work, I either want to make a unicorn or Pegasus.

Cough Cough Cough

Three sketches done in between coughing like I smoke 10 packs a day. One of John's hats and a tin flashlight.

And yes I have drawn glass bottles before but this is full of cough syrup, which doesn't feel like its even doing anything, but it might be.

Big Paws

Decided to see how big cat like paws would look on the cute 3D dragon. I think they looks ok, still need a bit of work but talon type feet were just not looking right with this scuplt. Looked really odd since most of him is round and fat looking.

Still need to work on his tail, it needs some little spikes and I might  put a small amount of scale detail on him, but no too much to be distracting. Now, back to coughing lol

Cartoon Me

Quick drawing of a little cartoon me. I wanted something simple and easy to draw again. For the actual comic I want it to be a tad more detailed but since I don't know what my comic for the module I am doing at Uni is going to be about yet, or have a story written, (need to really narrow down ideas tomorrow), the art style can wait until I have the idea set in stone. (I have a few ideas, but not sure if they will work for a 6-8 page comic or be too long actually)

I would be crazy to do a comic in Painter, and we are using a different program anyway, (which I need to really take a look at later tonight). But I do think it would look really interesting to have a comic done with Painter, there is probably one out there that has a similar look to it so might do some searching.
