In 2012 I picked up a pencil for the first time in almost twenty years. I call myself a sometimes artist as I am still learning all the techniques I’ve forgotten and developing a style that I feel comfortable with. The most important thing is to never give in and keep drawing outside your comfort zone, I hope you enjoy my journey so far…
Into the Spiderverse, is the most visually stunning movie I have seen in many year, and is the best superhero movie I have ever seen. Not taking anything away from the joy of the MCU, but Spiderverse is a pure comic book movie, so much so, it is like having a comic book explode in your face. Simply stunning.
As the last days of 2018 tick away, it is time for my annual tradition of sharing my art of 2018, all the pieces I created throughout the year as I struggle with style, color, and the new medium of digital drawing in the Procreate App. What follows is another journey, this time via the art I created. Enjoy.
Before I begin this Drawing Outside Your Episode blog, let me say this. You need to watch Into The Spiderverse, it really is like a comic book has exploded in your face and it is amazing! Everything you ever wanted from a comic book superhero movie is in this love letter to the industry. And this weeks illustration was inspired by this stunning movie.
Here comes Rokkit Bunny! Hero, Bunny and Cuddly Toy with a jetpack! The following comic strip is something a little different, it is an experiment in storytelling using panel pacing and movement. Drawn and plotted by me using Procreate on an Apple iPad & Pencil. You can view the two page story after the jump and please let me know what you think.
The annual event of Inktober has passed, 31 days of October dedicated to the illustrative art of the black line, and this is my fourth year of taking part. However, this year I broke with tradition of using paper and pen, and used the Procreate App and Apple Pencil – still working within the guidelines of keeping everything black line. Are you curious to see how did? Find out after the jump.
