Sunday sketches

Ink sketches with 2 grey tones, white, and a gradient.

While working on this I was listening to the presentations/conversations from 2008's "Beyond Belief: Candles in the Dark." on the science network with the theme of "Human Flourishing", and the one from 2006: "Beyond Belief: Science, Reason, Religion & Survival", really good stuff.

Alena - B & W Tones

This sketch is to nail down the look for a b&w comics story. My goal is to use minimal gradients, grey tones, texture patterns, and white highlights to make the production of the art quicker and the "reading" of the image (in the context of the story flow) clear and efficient, but still be more than just line.

While working on this I was listening to episodes of the TV shows Survivorman and Man Vs. Wild. Two shows about the skills needed to survive in harsh environments.

Chowdown - Colors

Chowdown sketch "Colors".  Continuing the quest to streamline my cg coloring process.  While working on this I was listening to the TV show: "Flight of the Concords" and the audiobook "No True Glory: A Frontline Account of the Battle for Fallujah."
