wist: (Bouncing dots)

I am so partied out this weekend, Blog. But fear not, I didn’t forget my promise to you. I’d NEVER forget my promises to you. Anyway, here are  some closeups of my favourite portions of that commision from the last post. I learned and experimented a lot with not just line weights but also trying to add the feeling of texture to my inks too.

For example, I liked the way I did the hair on Chris’s forearms here, and I’m pretty fond of how I did his head-hair too. Also, I’m kind of liking the little crow’s feet I gave him, and the way his stubble fades off into his skin. (That can’t possibly be the right way to describe that)

Under the cut is the step-by-step and a couple other choice closeups. What’s that? Hey now, Blog, watch yourself. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with being proud of myself and some of the things I’ve done. If anything, you should me proud of me.

Well, you know the drill by now, Blog. I get one image done, and then I find a whole bunch more on an old external hardrive that are tantalizing work in progresses. What? Don’t look at me like that. You know how I strive — often to counter-intuitive heights — for the feeling of completion and hard drive tidiness.  Besides, how am I expected to resist  something where half the work is already done for me?

I think I did this linework’ two years ago as part of a set. This is my Cheerleading Fairy of Optimism. She was probably supposed to have wings, but it’s very possible I was overdosing on cutesy girly imagery at the time, and just couldn’t bring myself to include them in the final ‘inks’.  I’d forgotten I’d ever drawn hair like that, and it’s kinda nice. Anyway, I’m hoping that putting this little lady up on the Blog will motivate me to A) finish her B) finish the ugly-ass sketch of her partner. By the way, the absurd idea of a ‘Cheerleading Optimist Fairy’ came from a tiny comic I’d done years and years and years ago over here.

Sob, Blog. Why can’t the hard parts be done by other people? Anatomy is so difficult and I don’t wannaaaa. You finish the sketch, Blog, I just want to colour.

Yeah, okay, I’ll stop whining and go get things done. Glad we had this talk. You’re the best.
