Ahh, the pretty, willowy, elf girls. They're so nice to draw. Hey, I gave you middle aged Troll ladies a while back. Give me a break!
I found this the other day whilst thinning out some old sketch pads. I seem to remember that there was a bit of trouble that meant the con never actually went ahead (if you remember what it was, let me know) but by then I'd already done this.
I haven't actually done any 'anime' stuff for years now. Of course, I started out as a (pretty poor, when you look at it) Japanese-style clone artist but that was at a time when it was new and everyone was excited about those 'manga cartoons'. Nowadays, it seems pretty commonplace so I've made a concious effort not to do that kind of work and, instead, just incorporate elements of it into my own style.
Some days, though, you do just hanker after drawing a wide-eyed girl with candy coloured hair in a mech suit.
In which I scan in random stuff found in my sketchbook. So don't expect anything too finished. Or good.
Here's a dapper baddie.
Italian, pre-school, video game, edutainment phenomenon - Bongorina urges you to make some comics for da kids.
I'd love to :)
I think this came from one of those, come up with an idea in 5 seconds to show how you can make a game using the Xbox XNA tools, thing.
I didn't come up with the idea, just some (equally quickly done) graphics.
I'm not very good at the paintery stuff; never have been but I am beginning to add more textures into my colouring. This was for another failed games project and that's all I'm saying.
Just in case anyone's not yet looked over Level 1-1 of the little videogame themed comic myself and some friends put together a while back I've now embedded it HERE so you can view it for free online. Well, if you can't hard sell your own stuff, what can you do?
