i had this simple idea after seeing this motor cyclist with a silver helmet
the look is a very typical Japanese hero type of thing but I was surprised when I watched red baron, an old Japanese giant robot show (live action) to see the villains were almost identical to this black suits, silver gloves and boots but they had a cooler more alien robot head

Digital Brushes

i like this even though it's kind of creepy
just toying around with making some photoshop brushes, looking to replicate that painterly look and texture of colors scrubbed into and onto other colors

Nibs Pens and The Big Brush

this weekend while battling a cold just strong enough to keep me fairly foggy headed i went to the graphaids 40% off everything sale and spent too much money. those awesome nibs looked so cool with the old timey graphics I bought a whole bunch, for a dollar a box it was a steal, and they are awesome. Craig Nelson one of my painting instructors in school would always insist on using brushes you think are too big for the job, i've been using that approach with my inking and i like it.

the big piece was my scratch pad underneath my pages that ink, usually testing the line of the different nibs as well as wiping off excess ink before brushing. I tested out a fairly big Japanese calligraphy brush and this was the resulting sketch...painting with ink is very fun

a work in progress cardboard sketch. I usually paint these cardboard drawings but maybe not with this one, I'd totally lose all the detail not much room to paint the form

Life Drawing

Titmouse my current workplace had a great workshop last night , Sylvain directed it. We had several short poses where we focused on continuous line never lifting the the pen(i was using pen) and finding where lines meet on the body for instance the arm meeting the torso. I hadn't done it in a while but it was a lot of fun from bottom to top is the general progression of the night the title of each piece indicates time and excercise
