It was alternately drizzling and the sun breaking through the clouds this afternoon at 22nd and Guerrero for this quick sketch

Scroll down through my blog a bit and you will find some earlier pages from this book in progress, it was shelved for awhile and now has been reborn out the ashes basically because it’s the one comic book project I have that is closest to completion. That said it wasn’t all that close to completion, basically all the linework was done and needed to be filled. I have decided to go the photoshop route and my rough process is illustrated here, beginning with filling areas with solid shades, picking out highlights and shadows and then starting to work texture effects into it. My intention is to give a ‘hand-made’ look to the finished art which is working in some parts but other pages the texture gets distracting, I’m thinking it needs a little variety in types of texture and a balance of textured areas and flat shaded areas.

It’s a fun project but it’s also very time consuming and I’m starting to feel restless with it, perhaps coincidentally when it requires the most intense concentration: bringing to completion.

It’s not easy being the hero, so why fake it? This page is a revision of my final project from my Digital Illustration class at City College, trying a new process using digital coloring.

Thoughts go out for Schumacher

Legendary Formula One driver Michael Schumacher suffered a terrible injury skiing last December and remains in a coma. It’s perhaps silly to care about someone who has never met you, and moreover is a celebrity, but Michael put his life on the line for years for the world’s entertainment (and his own ambition). Michael brought a lot of excitement to the racetrack, and his accomplishments are as of yet unequaled. Here is my little tribute to Michael and his humble beginnings when he lit the world on fire. Pull through Michael!
