Been little quiet here in dA lately. Hope everyone's alright and feel free to share your thoughts, feelings, joys and sorrows.
I once again have tons of projects on my hands. Besides my day job, I just received a new order of designs for a medal set (quite similar to the ones I did before: here
, only not from domestic client this time). Just had a promising meeting and hopefully something comes out of it
I've also been drawing another comic book album (My previous album, Hokki
[Revontuli 2015] is still available in some shops and web stores) and have nearly sketched everything. Now I'm facing this rather annoying condition: FEAR OF INKING! I feel that once you take that next step of adding ink on your pages, you can't just... stop. I have to keep drawing without a month-long pause in the middle. Because, if I do, I lose the momentum. The focus. The feeling. The mojo. "Carpe damn dentum" and all that, you know? So I'm still waiting for that decisive moment, when I have a clearing in my schedule and I can proceed, have a good start and run smoothly through. Day after day.
Naturally, you have to get back and refine, add details etc. etc. but the first inking phase shouldn't be disturbed. The second round can wait slighty longer... Any comments from comic artists? What do you think? How do you do it?
I've been trying to find time for painting as well. As you have noticed, I'm browsing through some WW1 armor and also have a thing or two on the paleo art front as well.
As they found two new ceratopsids, the Horns-series had to replenished once again. I already submitted my Machairoceratops
, and really enjoyed doing those prehistoric landscapes again. I still need to do Spiclypeus
, the chasmosaurine ceratopsian from Montana. But how? What do you want to see?
