Another week down and another chunk of dailies. I started off with a copic doodle for Splatoon, did some digital stuff in the middle, and finished off with some ink sketches.
I started using small Moleskin sketchbooks for when I’m out and about as most of my harcover sketchbooks are too large to be conveniently transported.
Also for those of you that have swung by my booths at various cons since the Summer Windsor Comicon last year have probably seen my Game Item Zine, it was the first volume in a series dedicated to games I grew up with and still enjoy today. Volume 1 was all about Items, weapons and things your characters would use within various games. Volume 2 will be all about enemy monsters. I’m really excited to be working on this one and will be going for a full colour book this time vs the previous black and white. Each page within the book will be a specific monster from a specific game, the overall size of the zine has not been decided because I’m still trying to figure out the complete roster.
I will post some mock up pages in the future to give you the idea but here are some of the images I’ve been working on.
Over the next few months I’ll be posting a lot of progress works from the zine so get ready for that.
And now less art stuff (kinda art stuff)
I was working on a way to try and organize my copics rather than have them just sitting all over the place, I know they make clear grid cases for them but haven’t been able to find any yet. Yesterday I got this Art of Final Fantasy collection in the mail. It’s awesome, covering games I-X. Yoshitaka Amano has amazing ink work, it’s really cool to see the monster designs for the first few games and how they became staples for the entire series.
Anyways, that’s all for now.
See you next week!
