I'll probably tonal this or maybe color it but plate is pretty full. If this isn't done at least there will be other things to look at.

#Terrarium

I made this while cleaning last night. Actually I made this instead of cleaning last night. Time well spent. Its supposed to have lights but I must have turned off the mechanism accidentally or broke it. Either would suck.

#spaceMan #spaceTurtle #TinDraw


Almost caught up with these posts. Today is a "space man" theme with his beloved intergalactic turtle. These turtles are much smaller than the turtles that ferry whole universes (obviously) but they can grow to be quite immense. Until then they are happy to take space men (and women, I'm not sexist) on a journey so that they can hone their flying ways. They however cannot survive in the lack of atmosphere this young and must have little masks and respirators.

Some minion anatomy for the scientific cartoon connoisseur. I imagine that they would have thick impact resistant bones and a tiny brain that doesn't bother with silly concepts like "free will" and "personal Opinion".

#nightmare #tindraw


This seemed like a pretty good nightmare concept, that's pretty much all I can say about the subject. Pretty much just grew out of my subconscious and things I thought looked cool at the time. I soppose much like all art is made.

#JSamuraJack #TinDraw


My first TinDraw at Tinman Creative. It had been a while since I had drawn anything and I was a bit thrown by the fact that I would have to that day. Also, Yanovo's don't have tilt sensitivity, which meant I couldn't do the Japanese brush effect I wanted here but at least I can say I've improved since this, as you will hopefully  see with the Tindraws to come.

5/52 Week Challenge - More notes and the future

What has been done.

So I've been researching and jotting notes for the comic for a couple of weeks now. The story is become more and more of a story and everything is getting much more fleshed out but everything is still very much just a bunch of loose ideas and notes that I need to connect together. From everything I have read, this is good. "Writing is re-writing" someone important once said and that seems to be true for art, so I'm inclined to believe it.

The notes span 9 pages in 12pt font, I was surprised to find out, and so I thought I would share what the pile of notes look like because it's all I can do for an update. See right...

What's next?

I'm going to be working on nailing down an ending or at least one that I can use for now. The ending is supposed to be one of if not thee hardest things to work out in a story and it's usually recommended to start there, so I will. Then it's on to extruding all the contents of Fathum out of my head in a somewhat linear and narrative form, just get it out there and on paper. This will probably take... a few... weeks but should have the benefit of seeing the whole story at an early stage so that I can get a good idea of what the world and story need to be. What it's themes and characters are and really play them up for all their worth and get rid of anything that doesn't help the story along. That's how riding works, right? Hopefully because it's the way I'm going at it.

Sorry there hasn't been much to any Fathum related artwork but I don't want to shoehorn a character or event in because there were some neat drawings that I did. It would feel out of place. And sorry for the long post. This was as much for my clarification and peace of mind as anyone else's.

@sketch_dailies #GRIFFIN


Today's sketch daily. I'm going to do the drawings for this week as a deck of cards to get out of my comfort zone, not like I'm usually in it... This took too damn long to do. I really need to start with final rather then sketching things out so much.

Next week, speed sketches. Need to get these out faster.

Oh, your still here. Guess I'll explain then. I want the comic to be very story driven and character driven and by that I mean I want the visuals to represent what is needed for the story or the character development and not the other ways around. Where I make a bunch of designs and try to shoehorn them into the story. I think that's best and besides, the concept sketches were basically me just doodling for a while and I think this is a tad more structured.

I will also be doing daily sketches for @Sketch_Dailies so there will still be a good amount of art to fill the gaps in the meantime.

Hope you like, for reals this time,
