Street Art Superheroes

So, here's the finished experiment:
I take a lot of photos of street art, so I thought I'd try to mix the two visual arts I tend to do stuff with.

Actually, that's about it. I'm quite happy with it, and I'll probably try a few more. Hope you like it.

A quick Superhero battle

This is a picture I did quickly because I had an experiment I want to try. Before I get that far, though, I'm pretty happy with this superhero / Battledriod showdown.

Acquisition Page 6, finished inks

So, a combination of inks...
  and a little computer blocking in the black bits, and here's the black and white of page 6...

Acquisition Page 6, first inks

Finished the first pass of inking on page 6, so there's some outlining and blocking black areas to go. Again, finding the A3 scanner great to use.

New Acquisition Pencils - Page 6

It's been a while since I was able to get back to Acquisition, plus this page was giving me a bit of a headache as to how I laid it out.
ANYWAY, I settled on this arrangement, and got the pencils finished.

Also, I'm loving the new A3 scanner my wife got me. I was able to do a quick scan of the inks I've done today, and put them up. Previously this would have taken about half an hour of scanning A4 size and trying to stitch the pieces together in Photoshop, and now it is the work of mere minutes.

So, yay.

New header

Now, this is a weird one. I don'treally have to put a new blog entry up for it, because, well, if you're on the site, you can see it.

It's right there.

Go on, look up the top, I'll wait for you to come back.



So, I did want to post about it, because, well, it took me a while to do, and I'm pretty happy with it, and I've been meaning to do it for a while. First of all, here was the first draft, which didn't have the Art Nouveau feel I wanted to go for (you know, to fit in with my stuff like l'ermitage and The Gentleman)

And here's the black and white version of it, which I rearranged and coloured.
