Man, I gotta hand it to writers. The time it takes to write and conceptualize a story (to me) is pretty brutal. I’ve thought about Pablo as a comic for a long time. The drawings of him as a comic book character were never right until recently. Now I have to throw this package together for class and I only recently came up with a fuller concept with some plot points. Here’s a rough sketch of a character that will be involved. Thanks to everyone who has been following the blog and to those who have just joined. My teacher’s thrown a few curves and the class will be ending soon but that’s just his way of kicking us out of the nest. I’ll be refining a lot of the homework you’ve seen glimpses of and posting them here so stay tuned.
Just because I’m out of town doesn’t mean I’m not working on my class assignments. I’ve decided to work on Pablo while away as well as on the exercises that Brian Stelfreeze recommended. Why can’t I have my cake and eat it too, right?
Also, a friend has already prepaid for three felted Yodas so I’ll have my work cut out for me over the next few weeks. Wish me well 🙂
So I’m reading this excerpt from Warren Ellis’ “Spider’s Thrash.” Never read the book before but was thinking about how to portray the character in this passage. He’s a septuagenarian feverishly working on a math equation. When I draw characters that haven’t been identified by characteristics, I try to vary them. We all don’t look the same, do we? Besides, variety is the spice of life and makes for more interesting and fun art.
Oooh, close call again! Thankfully, I work in the Pacific time zone. Here are the layout roughs for my class assignment: Lucifer, son of the morning. I know, kinda looks like a bunch of visual mumbo jumbo. If you click back a few posts and read the plot outline it should come together a bit better…out maybe not.
