heres the page I was working on as a proof of concept for a new comic. It’s about a girl who is the half fairy daughter of a fairy king in a world about 40 years after two world wars fought between humans and fae. it’s kind of epic. I havent gotten a goddamn thing done in two weeks because I turned forty and my little sister got married. oh and my computer died. the death of forever.
Here are some drawings from this week and some others from the past that figure in with the new ones. The drawing on the left is a study from a sketch book. The one on the right is from a comic about a girl who becomes the host for a symbiotic sentient alien algae. There is the requisite running from the government and falling in love with a robot. She eventually discovers another person also colonized by space algae but a red variety. Together they find out they are basically algae royalty on opposite sides of a bloody war. Well as much as space algae has blood I guess. Sort of Romeo and Juliet in the future with space algae. I wrote the concept and some story at a time I was mildly obsessed with a blue haired girl.
These are sketches I’m doing for some knucklehead’s a friend’s tattoo. For the one on the right I referenced a drawing by Chris Conn for the pose, but I honestly looked at about a hundred girl head tattoos. This is a few drawings removed as well. The next step will be to trace it to line art and scan it into photoshop. There I’m going to make the spider lady symmetrical and comp some colors. Although I have to say i really like the way colored pencil looks on dark paper.
