Beardus Maximus fan art, day 23

28 Oct

This ink drawing is loosely based on this photo by bitterlemon, made on the Alternative Press Expo 2009.

The drawing is made to support the sale of the collected trade comic book of PC Weenies, a webcomic by Krishna Sadasivam, for Geeks and people who can tolerate them.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 23

Challenged by his fellow comics creators and while he even doesn’t like it, Krishna grows a beard. Read more about it, and how you can support the artist in this post on his blog. Basically, for each copy of the trade comic book “Rebootus Maximus” sold through the website Krishna won’t shave for a day. Let him look like a hobo and freak out his wife, who is currently on family visit for a few months in India.

Process: The drawing was penciled with blue Pentel lead and inked with Faber-Castell brush pens (big the regular and big size). Once scanned, the blue lines were removed (CMYK separation) and the grays of the ink were converted into pure black and white, using Levels.

That is all.

Big Art & Story Party Time

28 Oct

Inspired by listening to the crossover show between the Art & Story and Big Illustration Party Time podcasts, called the Big Art & Story Party Time, I drew this piece of text art.

It took me as long to create as the listening time of Art & Story Party Time, part 6. I first penciled, then inked using both the small and big version of the Faber-Castell brush pen.

That is all.

I can appreciate why comics creators rather not design new characters. It is a lot of pain before you get it right. A lot of lazy sketching and not so lazy sketching.

The doodle at the right top was done in pencil. The caricature was done with Faber-Castell brush pen, scanned and digitally retouched and colored.

That is all.

Just some random doodle I made.

Mark Rudolph, part 6

I guess if you’re obsessed enough with a subject you can draw it without reference. It becomes almost iconic. In fact, I think it IS iconic. This mental picture of a subject seems important if you want to change it into something else, like a Samurai fighter, a barbarian, and yes, even a dog.

I also think passion and obsession is the only way to draw art that people want to watch. It has to speak from the heart or be silent. There seems to be nothing in between. That is very Yoda of me to claim: “Do or do not. There is no try.”

Where would we be without Star Wars?

That is all.
