Never Gonna Give You Up!

31 Mar

There used to be a prank on the Internet called Rickrolling. The joke was to trick people in surfing to a YouTube video of Rick Astley singing Never Gonna Give You Up. As I remember it, the song was seen as rather old-fashioned and run-of-the-mill.

Never gonna give you up

The sketch is based on an older version of Rick than in the YouTube video (he has gained a few pounds and his hair isn’t as bouncy as it used to be). I needed 50 minutes to draw.

I’m not going to Rickroll you, but I have considered. Ah well, if you insist, look here.

That is all.

Quantum Leap – 2

31 Mar

So, I inked the pencil drawing I did yesterday. I can see why most comic artists want to work big. It is hard to put ink on the paper if you’re working small. I made a few mistakes, which I erased with correction fluid.

After the scan, I removed the specks of ink and pencil traces that were left over (I had used kneaded rubber to erase as much as I could see). The scan was done at 1-bit color depth, 600 dpi.

I guess I have to put some color in this drawing, but I won’t do that today.

That is all.
