miniature sketches to use in future port silver or mono johnson stories... good for exploring different things...

did this a while ago, forgot to post. a pun on bob's shoder character from mister macak magazine =)

how about some doodles? actually, the second one is a storyboard frame. started doodling in the morning again, before real work, as warmup. it works. duh.

kind of blue


for some reason, i keep getting these portrait assignments, even though it's not really one of my strong points. however, it's good- at least it's making me learn stuff. most of it was done with a brush, and an old one as well- only after totally destroying the girl did i think "maybe it's not me, might be that the brush is finished". hence no girl on the closeup below:

the rough i sent, a scribble, just to get the idea across. the original is probably smaller than on your screen:

pencils (the faces were drawn separately, just for safety):


and a closeup without color, since i like some of the strokes here =)

hee hee


disgustingly happy together, yes =)

on schedule


feels good getting to work in the morning. since it's usually smaller jobs, they are good for warmup. also, a bunch of manga is downloading while i'm drawing =)

not even close yet. though, working lighter seems to make for better end result in print.

i scanned the pencils this time so here they are with the raw scan of the gouache pic. since i finish it in photoshop, i do these first steps really sloppy, as i know i'll stretch/squash/move stuff around. the colors i use now are way too crappy, but when i get some proper ones i'll try to pretty much finalize it on the paper. right now i just put some color to have something to work from, and it adds a bit, with the brushstrokes and all. here's a detail i like-

three out of four. i'll be inking the rest of the day...

one thing crossed off the list for today. four to go.

ink silver


did the pencils for this months ago, strange inking them now, as usual. but the good part is they actually look better ink. i'd say that's good! i'll post a couple of pages when it's done (soon!).


p.s. danijel zezelj is serializing his whole Rex comic album online, new page every wednesday (28 pages so far). click the banner to see it-

more scribbles


it's been a slow week, weekend being the low point. time to get back to proper work. i can feel the sanity coming back.

tried doing this one lighter to make up for the damage they'll do when they print it. also repainted most of it in photoshop, zoomed out (around 25%). glad to be done with this guy. now a couple of minor things to finish and i'll take the rest of the crappy day for reading.

p.s. saw richard kelly's southland tales- sure it's impossible to follow up something like donnie darko, but this one's a major blank. such a shame. could've been a nice spectacular end-of-the-world epic. feh.

under the weather



it's been a couple of crappy days, some big changes were decided on...

November 22, 2007

not there yet

thursday means another portrait, and this time they decided they need color. since there was no time to go buy proper gouache or something, i used watercolors (plus photoshop). i prefer opaque color but it turned out ok-

retour au travail


back home, back to work. the trip was great- it's a wonderful city (paris) and i'm looking forward to coming again soon. since we were zooming around all the time, and it was only for a few days, i didn't sketch much. next time! now back to work, stuff piled up a bit...

don't save money on chinese paint


that's all for this week, now for a couple days of rest. heading out for paris tomorrow morning, i hear it's wonderful this time of the year, what with the mass transportation workers on strike and everything. anyhoo, cheers!

baby steps


still way too much of a mess, but getting the hang of it. would be easier if it wasn't at the last moment (hard to believe, but not because of me)...

this one should be out in vecernji list, on saturday, for the croatian blog readers. the last one was printed last saturday, didn't see it actually.

arbeit macht... mehr arbeit.



something different to work on every day (night), in this case- boards and colorwork (comic page by seƱor mcn)

today's schedule is more boards and a spot illustration. and maybe some sleep.

at random



rushing around all day, random stuff done while waiting for things. busy days, but good!

peintre du dimanche

work stuff for this evening. still doing everything backwards. not that i don't know how it should be properly done, but i always end up using real paint as photoshop and get carried away. next time i'll do it right. yes. closeup with photoshop makeovers-

November 06, 2007

yum


man do i love the brush. did another ad today, and going to bed at 5 again. i wonder if i'll manage to get up in three hours. hmmmmm...

overslept again today so it's work instead of school. better, i'd say.
