Creating on a creative low

24 Oct

Although my creative talents were on a low today, I managed to put out this title for a comics page that I hope to publish later today. It seems that mere discipline and determination can bring you a long way.

Buzz-Kill and Crackpot, part 2

If I’ll do another page with these two characters, I’m sure I’ll redraw the title.

Basically, the parts were drawn on a piece of paper with mechanical pencil, reordered and traced on tracing paper with the same pencil, inked with a brush pen, scanned, retouched, and coloring in GIMP (where I also added the encircled “AND”).

That is all.

Starting the art day is hard

24 Oct

I’m obviously not a morning person with that title (sorry for breaking the fourth wall there). Having spend much too much time on Twitter with someone who I thought was serious, but either had too much to drink or was bored (is there a difference then?), I finally started drawing for the first time that day. Some people can be such emotional vampires.

Anyway, I closed Twitter, to ensure I couldn’t be distracted and started drawing Adam Curry with a mechanical pencil on paper. It didn’t turn out as well as yesterday, when I seemed to be on a roll. It isn’t too bad, just not great.


I only hope the “flow” comes sooner rather than later.

That is all.
