It’s my favorite time of the year, I have been on the road just putting miles on the bike and taking stops to sketch. For the month of May I managed to do something for Mermay, a couple of NBA illustrations and of course one for the monthly character design challenge. Some days I want to do thick inker lines and the next day loose pencil styled designs. It’s still hard to decide what “style” I actually am.
Recently spent sometime getting familiar with Manga Studio/Clip Paint Studio again. Photoshop is my primary tablet interface but I wanted to see what changed. After installing the latest brushes from Frenden, I can say quite a bit. The new tips just feel more organic and the lag that was around with the latest OSX El Capitan update is now gone.
The first three sketches are from the weekend done using traditional ink and paper. Also, I just finished Into The Badlands this week so thus the flood of characters from that world will begin.
