Wonder Woman sketch cover. by Blasterkid
Wonder Woman sketch cover.
Getting back into penciling...it's pretty challenging honestly.  David Finch draws so differently than me...my eyes have really adjusted to his way of drawing...he pencils very heavy and kind of more scratchy...I tend to draw a lot more neat, clean, and light....so it's a BIG change.

also I can say for me...inking doesn't really improve my penciling...so not drawing my own stuff for the last 16-18 months.

Wonder Woman blank sketch cover. (final)

Day 2 back penciling...whew my head was spinning today..So much more mental juice and concentration...you really have to train a different eye too.

I'll speak more on what I am noticing as I move forward. .. 

Thanks!

Walking Dead Joker by Blasterkid
Walking Dead Joker
Back penciling...it had been a while so I started with something I would be a little more confident on...I thought a Walking Dead Joker might be a good place to start.

:)

(if you want to see the work in progress scans...let me know I can post them also)

The original idea was to add a little spontaneous color...so I went for it. I can always do some pen and ink only ones down the road.

some thoughts today:

This reminds me a lot of when I started drawing on the Wildstorm blog...this really feels like a new beginning. At some point I hope to find my very first drawing that I posted on the wildstorm blog. I've never been able to find it but I know that I didn't get rid of it. It's just a simple monster sketch but it was important because it was me being able to be brave enough to post something that I didn't think was that good online, and to stand behind it as "yep I'm just starting to learn, but I'm going to go for it."

I was so nervous drawing this piece today. I hadn't really pencilled or inked anything on my own in over a year...maybe 2 years.

So stay tuned...thanks!
