A few more drawings from Summer. Both of these were actually great sets, but drawn mostly back to back so that they don't scan well at all. These are what was salvageable.
The current sessions have been pretty great the past couple of weeks, looking forward to putting stuff up.

So in my last sketchbook I decided for a bit that I was going to try drawing a comic actually in the book. To make that section of the sketchbook a comic itself. As you can see, I did this for one splash page and half a page.
I then got excited about it, and bought a special sketchbook just to do a project like this in. Then everything I drew in it was crap. None of it was inked, so maybe there is still hope. In the meantime please enjoy the experiment.
ALSO. I am discovering the joy of hand lettering. This is because how much I hate computer lettering Benthic. Dicking with the text in InDesign and the bubble in Illustrator at the same time is my least favorite thing to do, possibly on the planet. The people who do this professionally need to be diagnosed. Hand lettering is a pain, but at least I feel like I'm eliminating a step on the back end.

I realized a few days ago that we're three weeks into the Fall 2010 sessions of Naked People Superchallenge, I only put up one lousy post of material from Summer. Honestly, there were a lot of bad weeks through Summer (this may have been the craziest summer of the last five years for me), but I have another couple posts worth of decent stuff.
So I've been very lazy about posting the past few months. I have not been lazy, however, with drawing. So I'm going to be posting a lot over the next few weeks, and am starting this off with a bit of a double header.
This is a tattoo I drew for a very good friend of mine.. The color study was the real challenge, since its hard to project what ink is really going to look like when it is going through darker skin; though I am excited to see how close I got once the tattoo is finished for real.
