Erasing madness

Got to spend almost the entire day on drawing, and what happens? Its a bad drawing day for me. I got this drawing of Len done, though I'm not a hundred percent happy with it. It will do for what I'm working on, though, so I guess that's all that matters. It certainly was a day full of erasing and not much drawing. I hate those days.

I wish I had of left enough room on the page to draw the rest of her legs because I kind of need them for the scene I'm doing. Oh well, that would have just ended with me being even more frustrated with the piece. And what's up with me and the one armed people lately. Yes, her other arm is supposed to be behind her, but I also think I do it cause I'm lazy.

Character Design

Another minor character design for Never. Again she's a bar wench and she and the other girl are not too pleased with what they see. Next I need to learn how to colour backgrounds. And, you know, draw them too, but that's less important, right?

Bar Wench

Someone not from Never. Well, sorta. She's an extra. Or at least I plan on making her an extra. I don't often spend enough time on the side characters, which is a flaw I intend on fixing when I get back to the comic. I like her because shes not the usual body shape I draw. Not that she's that much different, just a bit more round and shorter.

Nothing much going on. Just a quick drawing that I didn't bother inking but decided to colour anyway. Sometimes I like the shaded pencil look more than inked. It's more loose and something. Yes, she's a redhead. Yes, I'm a redhead. No, I don't think I look like that. Though I kind of want to grow out my hair again to have it look like that again. :P

I happened to be going through a few of my old drawings and I found these. They make me smile. Mostly because people sometimes say (if they don't know much about the style) that I draw manga. Yeah, this is me attempting to actually draw manga. Big eyes and all. These characters were for a comic I was going to draw. Good times good times.

Illyia character design

Illyia is one of the main characters of Never, and yet I've spent very little time drawing her. She's really hard for me, because I can't quite figure out what she looks like. She's supposed to be pretty, but not as conventionally so as Len is. Well, this drawing isn't quite what I have in mind, but it's possibly the direction I'm going in.

When I was looking for photo references for this drawing, I discovered that her hair style, which I thought I had made up, is actually a trend. An emo trend. Once I thought about it a bit, I think that suits her. She does cut herself after all. Blood is how her magic works, okay? It's just how it works... Yeah. Okay. I'll think through my ideas more next time.

Where's he hidding his knives?

Two posts in one day? What's wrong with me? Oh right. Avoiding school work. Almost done of that, don't you worry.
So, in case you couldn't figure it out, that is Aalex up there. He's just hanging out. And wearing way too much clothes. Wait, did I just say that out loud? Actually, for those of you who haven't tried, it's really hard to make a guy look sexy when he's still wearing clothes, especially a shirt. How do people like Johnny Depp do it? He just oozes sexiness. Even with missing teeth and funny hair. Yeah. Now I want to watch Pirates of the Caribbean. Stupid train of thought...

Monday Smut.

Well, this image has been up on Deviant Art for about a day, but I'm never sure if the same people who make it here make it there. It's amazing how much people like smut. I had a favorite before I even had time to check the image after putting it online. Haha. So why the smut? It bothered me a little how timid Len seemed in this comic so far. She's not a shy girl. If I was going to redo this comic, (don't hold your breath) I would definitely make her a much more outgoing person. Perhaps some of that will come out as the comic progresses.
Almost done of classes. And then I will hopefully have some time to do more, better art. Maybe work on backgrounds and the like.

Never ending hiatus

Like what I did with that title? Cause it's "Never" and... yeah... I know. I'm lame. No need to tell me. :) I've actually been working on Never again. I have about five pages sketched out, but I'm not going to rush them to get them done. I'll start posting again when I'm sure I can actually update somewhat regularly. And I'm sure you've heard before, the sketching is the easiest/funnest part. The inking and colouring is what takes up the most time.
Anyway, the posted picture is of course Len and Roald. This was going to be for the page after Aalex's big fall, but it just wasn't working. The scene needed to be more focused on Aalex than these two. But I still kind of like the sketch.

More Hiatus drawings

Well, I had a comic done for today, but it's just not good. It's a bad joke, its poorly drawn, and it's just not worth shading and putting online. I don't know what I'm going to do with comics. I apologize to everyone who keeps visiting the site in hopes of updates. But hey, there's a quick drawing of Aalex to cheer you up.
