Not comics, but I did an invite for the same people I do gig posters for, and I thought it turned out pretty not that bad. I’m trying to get a better handle on my typography balance/placement. I actually did some retro gig poster digging before it too…
Okay, anyone who doesn’t know about color scheme designer… This thing is a life saver. Not only can you fiddle around until you get exactly what you want, but you can see how the colors work against each other immediately. You can also export it as a photoshop color palette and start workin’ right away. It’s a great place to start a digital work from.
PS, this is probably the color scheme for that new band poster. Colorful enough yah think?
So, I’ve decided to grow up and leave Deviantart. Meaning that I’ve created my own artist site… Mostly for business cards. It has portfolio work (even stuff from 2009), sketches, and in progress shots. Please follow if you like anything I do.
The 30 day character challenge: #7: Anna/Andrew Delion
Anna has been scrapping all her life in order to survive on the streets of France, and the French kickboxing style Savate is her specialty. When she learns that the 1924 Olympics will allow Savate as an event, she is ecstatic-–only to later learn that, like most events of the 20′s, women aren’t permitted to compete. Wait… Who the hell said that would stop her?
ALLNEW!Character for the challenge! PROBABLY NOT REALLY HISTORICALLY ACCURATE AT ALL BUT I DON’T CARE BECAUSE SAVATE IS RAD ~(=_=)~ CHECK IT OUT HERE! PS. I had to physically stop myself from writing “Le Bloo bloo bloo” in the bottom right. If you understand, 10pts.
The 30 Day Character Challenge: #3+4: Princess Creole and Warrior Tan
On a distant planet there lives a race of alien shamans, a once peaceful people that have been forced into war by neighboring ruthless aliens. Princess Creole, carrying the reincarnation of their greatest existing spiritual warrior, is the last hope of her race. Along with Creole’s trusted bodyguard Tan, the two must escape their planet and find a safe place to birth their savior before Creole is assassinated by the rival aliens. The most boring, overlooked, insignificant planet in the galaxy? Earth.
They say that her pants are made from real rattlers that she eats for breakfast. They say that one dirty look from her can turn a man to stone. They say she was born by wolves, then raised by cougars after they murdered those wolves. One rumor is true about Clementine, and that is that she can’t die– at least, not by anything other than a stake anyway. An incredibly selfish vampire; Clem is rude, crude, and out to kill anyone that gets in the way of amassing her vast fortune. The victims of her various train-robbing, cattle rustling, and all around thievery have come to fear her name far and wide in the ol’ west; even if the majority of them think this little girl is really a fearsome burly man. Trust me when I say that you don’t want to mess with Clem… Unless you have a big robbery to pull off, that is.
