Drawing faster

Somehow over the period of the past 5 months I have managed to change the way I put a pencil onto paper. Things have been coming out faster than ever. It is probably a combination of continued practice everyday mixed with me trying a new style that involves making pictures without any sort of underdrawing.

Unfortunetally it hasn't come to the point yet where I can sit down and pencil 12 pages in an hour, but the pencilling iv'e been doing has been a lot quicker. My drawing overall has gotten faster, and a lot faster. I'm hoping eventually this WILL lead to an ability to sit down, think of something, and draw it with little or no need for corrections or sketching. Since I was young (probably around 13-15) i've always wanted to draw this way, with no need for tedious underdrawings, shapes, sketchy lines, or building blocks. This ability hopefully will progress with more practice and patience. Wish me luck...

Sad news

Sad news

It appears Satoshi Kon, director of one of my favorite movies "Paprika" has passed away unexpectedly. I'm very upset about this and send my condolances to his family and other fans... He was only 47, very very unfortunate.

amp



Done in Painter X, with the ink tool. The ink tool behaves strangely, although it resembles ink at times, it seems to me more like scratchboard. But not a bad set of tools. Makes for some interesting experimentation.

How many comic panels are too many...

I've been playing with this on and off, how many panels can you do before something gets too crowded or becomes so abstract it is no longer stylized the same way as the rest of the book? In the comic I write, the most I was able to pull off was 8 panels. (examples below)





These two were pretty successful, I like the first more than the second. I've seen books with 9 panel grids and even more... I'd love to hear some opinions on this sort of thing. Can I do more than 8 panels without things falling apart or becomming a puzzle? If 9, 10 ,12 , 15 panels are doable what would be the sort of scene, scenes for this? (I'm not going to do it just to do it, there has to be a reason behind it of course) Can a page say, with all sillouettes work ok in this comic? Will very small drawings work ok? (especially since a majority of the pages in this story have larger images. I'd love to hear some opinions

Tsuruga City shopping center Galaxy Express Statues

One of the coolest things i've ever seen, it's in my life goals to visit this place.

Apparently this rail port is a significant place in Japan, which uses the statues to commemorate the port's 100th anniversary.

Frank Belknap Long from "The Space Eaters" 1928

"If a man wishes to write ghostly stories and actually convey a sensation of horror, he must believe in everything -- and anything. By anything i mean the horror that transcends everything, that is more terrible and impossible than everything. He must believe there are things from outer space that can reach down and fasten themselves on us with a malevolence that can utterly destroy us -- our bodies as well as our minds."
