The Séance commission complete

Here is the finished art of The Séance, from Umbrella Academy. It's been a while since I used my Copic markers and this is probably one of the better drawings I've done with them. I used the Neutral Gray markers and the Cool Gray for the majority of the character, using only one color, Sand I think it was, for his hair. This is also the first time I've used colors from different families over one another. I've been wary of it as I know if you try to mix a lighter tone over a darker one, the result is a mottled weird version of the darker color. In his jacket, I mixed the Neutral 6 on top of the Cool 5, going up a level in darkness, but also really muting the coolness of the cool gray and it didn't mottle the ink at all. I'll have to practice this on the warms and see if I can further effect the saturation of the markers. Oh art experiments, how I love thee.

Overall I'm really happy with this, and the commissioner was really happy with it. Thanks Emily for the support!

Séance Commission Pencils

Here are the pencils for a commission for my friend Emily: Séance from Umbrella Academy. The book is a lot of fun, and I'm enjoying it more the second time through. I still have a few more steps left to take on it, but here are the pencils. I need to update this blog more!

Comic Journal 04/13/2013: Oxycodone is evil

I had a minor surgery. Ain't that something? My foot looks like it insulted Mike Tyson's foot, but hey, at least it's healthy again. Now to help my wallet recover from the hospital bills. So yeah, if anyone would like to help me out by commissioning me, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Also thanks to my roommates for taking care of me during this annoying time, and my cat, for being a good cat while I was sick and feeble.
