We are really excited to put the new steampunk comic O.W.L. on Meritcomics.com! I know we have been talking about it for a while, so here it is! So far we only have one page up on [link] but we will be updating every week!
I looove vintage stuff, and doing some research into evening gowns between 1900 and 1920 really made my mouth water. These dresses are all inspired by the particular years that all contribute towards the fashion and clothes that are floating around in Crankrats, at least in the Bantarian side. The Altavian clothing is a mixture of 1930-40's and tribal dress, so it's all a bit convoluted!
Still, i adore these gowns and you'll probably see more from me on this aspect, (And I had to sneak Jack in there in a old style pinstripe suit ) especially after i was listening to this on repeat: [link] Dat swanky man, everyone loves a bit of Bewb!
So I was listening Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and actually it's pretty awesome! But I'm still sad because of the Gallaghers fight and the brokeup of the Oasis T_T Actually it's not for that song, but I liked the title and I drew a clocks so, why not? DO YOU, DOOO YOUU recognize the ART DECOO???
Music: Black Tambourine, Worker Bee, John Coltrane
--- [link] --> initial concept [link] --> sketch to inks to computer progress shot [link] --> old failed attempt at this concept/style/etc. [link] --> attempt to ink with the tablet... doesn't look as good as the pen/brush inks I used for this new one, I think
All the practice is paying off. The new incarnation of my graphic novel project Water will now be looking more this and less like garbled shit ([link]).
11x17" Bristol board, micron ink pens, India ink, colors added in PSP7
First off, large file is large. Deal with it. So this is a collection of chibis I've done, some for commission and some for fun. Most of these characters are used in rps/comics between three people including myself. If someone is interested in a chibi like one of these, a full colored inked one would be $10 Canadian. Just note me if you're interested or have any more questions. Okay so the characters are as follows....
Top Row Left to Right: Jack, Jhev, Dean, Caden, Ember, Merrick Bottom Row Left to Right: Jade, Amaya, Hunter, Kael, Rhona, and Aram.
Jack, Jade, and Hunter belong to Jhev and Dean belong to The rest of them belong to myself and hopefully be used in an upcoming comic I'm starting.
Background texture is borrowed from one of 's steampunk texture collections.
EDIT: Just some minor color changes in a couple of characters.
