well since i dont have a scanner i had to steal some of jans art, specificaly the sketch of him on an island, i only did small amount of it (just the bird) and decided to go with a cellshaded style, it looks horrible...

jans bird:

- I find that hilarious. There goes my old glove...IN COLOR!
- I think that's better than my earlier starts at coloring. Anyone remember those?
- Here's something I always noticed. Whenever I see comics that are just starting (experience wise) they always use sharp brushes at first.
- So how long did it take?

inking filling and shadding all took 3 hours.


i will never give you s**t ever again... i promise.


then again it Was a very rough sketch, that probably didnt make it any easier, and alot of the time was just figuring out how to do it.

- Do you want my pencil sketch of Agent Cole? I would like to see how long it takes you. Those Info page pictures I span over 2 days.
- I am definitely faster now that I was 1 year ago. If you look at the calendar archives...no I'm not (I was on fire in June). But I know I'm doing more intricate things. Like look at the site or all the textures, shading, better proportions and animation I can pull off now.
- Now you're next step is to find out a pattern. You're right, a lot of time is used up planning. Which I wish I would have a absolute image in my mind and know the steps I'm going to take before I start drawing. Come up with a routine that you can follow each time. The constant practice will make you faster.

- Here you go: Link. It's not quite the original scan. I shrunk it and compressed it a little because I'm paranoid about uploading my originals.
- Don't feel like texturizing the fur? How about the clothes? If you look at my Info page drawings, I try make fabric and wrinkles.

another half hour, so the whole think took me only an hour. im happy with that. also instead of cell-shading i used the built in inner shadow effect, im happy with that too. this IS the style i will be using with my comic.
