The final page of issue 2!  (again no background, compared to issue 3 this is a bit embarrassing looking back, but hey, that’s what growth is about right?!) I do like the effect on the word balloon though with the letters pushing out of the burst a bit.  I think during this issue there was progress made in how I did those balloons and the lettering and such, but I think I was trying to draw it quickly and so the art and the detail suffered.  I have not yet drawn all of Issue 3, and with two little ones I don’t have as much free time, but I’ll give you guys a taste of it Thursday with some samples and then start to post them up shortly!

Let me know your ideas and thoughts!!

Black Mask’s men are on the rampage! Who can stop them?  Being at page 21 makes me nervous about the next issue!  I don’t even have all of it drawn yet! But I do have a few pages inked, I just need to scan in a few and get ahead!

I know I’m a day late, sorry!  Here we have the fall out from the interaction at the iceberg lounge.

It’s funny looking back at pages I have drawn months ago and then drawing new pages now and how much better they are!

Batman wants more information and he’s willing to get a bit rough with Penguin to get it!

Sorry about missing Tuesday’s post life kind of gets in the way sometimes though.

Drawing Batgirl

Hey everyone!  It's Saturday and that means another drawing video.

This weeki chose Batgirl to draw because I thought that this month was gOing to be the stay of the Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr run on the book.  So i was a little disjointed when I went into the shop and it was Future's End!  I suppose that if I had been reading the weekly Future's End book I would have been up for that but I'm not.

Anyways check out the link below and tell me what you think!

Not the best panel breakups, but it gets the job done.  I’m actually pretty proud of that m-16, I actually used reference for that!

I2 Pages 16-17

page 16 - 17

A bit over simplified maybe, but it does well I think, Batgirl and Robin tackle two thugs and Batman cracks this guys knee and then an elbow in the face. Action is fun to draw!

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Lesson 3

The next lesson in the book is one that I have done a few times at school actually.  I think everyone in grade 7/8 around here has done the draw your hand by looking at it thing, or draw your shoe.  The first part of this was that you are to draw your hand with your body facing the complete other direction so that you are not tempted to peek. Don’t worry if it looks like a hand in the end, just start your pencil moving on the page oh so slowly and try to put down on paper every tiny detail.

It’s best to do this when you have about a half hour and some quiet space to work in.

Mine looked like this.



Then you turn and see that good gosh it looks nothing like a hand, but you get a new page and to draw while looking next at both your hand and your drawing.  Try to split that to be about 85% looking at your hand and 15% looking at your paper.  Now the first attempt I did at this I tried with one line (or close to it) because that’s pretty much what I did in the ‘don’t look’ drawing.  It came out like this:


Then I drew it again but uses more of a sketching technique and got this.


Finally it was suggested that you try the same thing but while holding an object.  and by this time when I started I could really feel the Left side of my brain letting go of the control and letting the right do the work.  It’s like being in a Zen state kind of thing.  It was really interesting to have that sensation.


I think why these types of things don’t work so well at school is that at that early teen age you are too interested in doing things ‘right’ or talking to your friends and all that, and those types of actions or thoughts break up the Right side control.


Give it a try and see how it comes out for you!  Post links in your comments if You can!

Much better than the last page, just like I promised.  I can see where the page is lacking a bit, but at least we have backgrounds and such, even if they aren’t amazing.
