“Bechdel-Style Two-Colour Printing,” a reverse-engineered tutorial. The full comic that I made with this technique can be found here.
And, hey! if you want to buy the entire two-colour sea-themed anthology it will be in, we’re running a fundraiser with pre-orders for it until June 1st.
Okay. I know I never reblog things, but this is a great tutorial.
& while I’m reblogging it, let’s just talk about what an amazing guy Jonathon is. He is the coolest dude ever & everyone can learn so much from him. I know I give him a hard time 100% of the time, but I really look up to him & seriously admire his work. If you aren’t keeping up with his comic A Mad Tea-Party, you should be.
Hello Tumblr! You may not know this, but I paint portraits! And I can do one for you! If you’re interested in receiving an original painted portrait of yourself or of someone you know, contact me and we can set something up!
Also, if you know someone you think would be interested, please feel free to pass them along to them. Happy tumbling!
This is my best buddy. She paints portraits. The one she did of my hangs in my parents’ living room. Which is unfortunate because I really wanted to hang it over the mantlepiece in my apartment.
I loved The Hero Legacy. I think its a really cool short story, but it would be neat to see how Pat deals with his new powers. Loved it!
Thanks. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I agree that seeing Pat deal with his new powers would be fun, but that’s a story for another time. :)
Thanks so much for reading!
I was back in Toronto for a week & spent some time cleaning out my bedroom at my parent’s house. As I was doing so, I came across this thing. It’s a morphing cube thing that I think my mum got from one of her clients when I was in grade 7. I thought it was really cool, so I made my own images & pasted them over top. They’re various characters from a newspaper-style comic I drew at the time based on all my friends.
Here’s a kind of terrible gif I made to show how this works.
Some quick sketches of Pix. I miss this guy so much when I’m in Vancouver.
Just a quick afternoon sketch. Trying something different. I’m not very good with colour & I’m trying to improve on that.
First three pages of The Hero Legacy. Since it’s mother’s day & this comic is about a mum, I thought it was appropriate to share it with you again, in case you hadn’t seen it before. I know there’s a link in the sidebar of my blog, but I got some new followers recently & thought I might direct y’all to it. It’s interesting to see how much my art has changed over the course of a year.
The Hero Legacy is a short story about a mum who hasn’t told her kids about a big family secret.
This is the current organization of my desktop background.
I figure since the school year’s over I might post some of my process work. For my school stuff I tend to do WAY more preliminary sketches. Mostly because if I’m workshopping a piece, I want people to have something to look at & critique. It’s hard for someone to give me feedback on my work & help steer me in the right direction if it’s all in my head!
These are outfit sketches for THIS comic. Obviously, the designs were greatly simplified due to the nature of the medium I was working in (scratchboard). I coloured these on a whim.
