this is a sketchbook blog for my new graphic novel.
These sketches are great (not just the ones on this post, but all the work you've been posting here) - Your linework is very fluid and loose, but it doesn't seem random at all, I find that very difficult to pull off (I'm borderline OCD when I'm inking my stuff, and it NEVER comes out as intended).I'm very curious to see what the pages on your OGN will look like!Best,J.
James. Thank you. I love to draw but i am not a good inker. I can never get a smooth line. I should use a brush but I'm too much of a control freak and stick to crow quill nibs. My brush work gets way to loopy. I think the pencil is more fluid because I can go crazy in my sketchbook. Gary wants me to scan in the sketches and go digital from there. He's probably right.
Man, don't get me started on brushes, I'm fucking terryfied of the things...lolAnd I think that with just a little bit of tightning up you could totally go directly from your scanned sketches, man!
