Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
my guess, a real pencil and real watercolor.Great color. Nice mass on that lion. A comic book with that look. Someday.
I was thinking the same thing about utilizing that style for my comic. By the way, which of you know Stephen Silver? I'm thinking about taking his online course. Anyone's name I can drop?
I'm with Ellis... I think that this is real watercolor.I think this is a GREAT style, but I would be interested in knowing what other styles you are considering.Who is Stephen Silver?
Thanks for the notes Ellis!This is Stephen Silver's web site. Neat stuff I think:http://www.silvertoons.com/index2.php
Oh, right! The Kim Possible designer... I saw him at the Con a couple of years ago. Really cool designs!
Rick, For the comic book I'm also considering a very graphic style made with Flash-style vector art (you know how I like that paper cut-out look), or a pencil-rendered style. Or even a combination of all three techniques somehow rolled into one.
Those all sound cool... Flash does some pretty interesting things to drawing... I'd like to see any experiments you come up with in any of those directions.BTW, I was just accepted as a member of the National Cartoonist Society! Whoo Hoo!
Congrats Rick. What does membership involve? What's the perks.You can get the look of what Flash does to your line art by using the CUT Out filter in photoshop/ Check it out if you never have.
Well, I get the NCS newsletter, access to the NCS bulletin board, the NCS directory and (I suspect) an invitation to their annual convention where they hand out the Ruben awards... oh, and I'm guessing that I get to vote on the Rubens as well.And bragging rights... ;)
Congratulations Rick,Well deserved!
I'm stoked for you, Rick! Congratulations!! I hope this year's Comic Con group includes you (and me!). ;-)
