Shade again, in a fun new outfit. This is him quite a long way along the DS timeline. fyi, Blackjack's responsible for that unpleasant looking 'scratch' in his chest (long story). In the back there is Ymmu the Necroclast, Shade's dire werewolf form and of course Raven.
7 Media: Pen and ink, tidied in Photoshop. Character: Shade, Shadow Priest daemon.
Pages from 'Wolf and Raven'. Had a lot of fun experimenting with layouts for this comic.
8 Media: Media: Pen and ink, marker 2.5.x.5 artist trading card. Character: Soul
9 Media: Pencils
Characters: Blackjack, Geirrodur, that zombie griffin and Knightmare.
13 I'd been asked a few times now how I go about drawing the pages for 'Heritage'. So here's the skinny: Start off with a thumbnail sketched (not pictured because they look like crap), sketch out the page proper (again not pictured, same reason). Once that's done I ink the lines. For this I use Deleter no.1 black ink and Deleter dip-ink pens. G-pen for most of the lines, changing to a mapping nip for the thinnest lines. I use Letraset comic book paper... for a while I used Deleter paper but it doesn't hold the ink so well on the wash stage. Which brings me on to... The wash stage! Once the ink's dry (that's rather important) I rub out the pencils and come in with kolinsky sable brushes (Winsor&Newton Series 7) with Deleter ink. This time I use no.5 since that seems to work nicest with washes. Once inked and dried I then use Photoshop to add more shading and atmosphere. For this particular page I decided to add colour but usually I stop at the greyscale stage.
Quick brush pen drawing. Thinking about making adoptables of this just to see what will happen. Maybe.

The versions of these I used for graphics are teeny tiny, but I kinda liked these particular ones (there's more!) so decided to upload them at a larger size for you all to see :) I've still got a load more characters need drawing, but I'm more than halfway through now.
