Going Inside...

0 min read
With the onset of Autumn, my thoughts shift over to the indoor scene... Might be posting decent notions as they emerge...

It's been a fun summer so far; seeing all the work of the winter "spring" to life on the field has been awesome! Many thanks to all who helped new uniforms become a reality for the corps!! But in the wake of so much new stuff happening, I felt I could give myself - and all of you - a bit of a break from reality - and maybe offer up my rendition of a "Summer Blockbuster"... That said, I offer for your enjoyment what will hopefully become a summer-long series based on two of my favorite guilty pleasures: outdoor pageantry AND comic books! Talk about the ultimate in geek-tastic "Fan art!! Now, I won't be "forcing" comic book hero costumes onto

Omg, your career is awesome! 🤩

Digging the indoor designs!
I love all your designs, they are very phenomenal.  I almost like these better than our uniform people, FJM.  Almost, because, well, people tend to love the uniform they spend a season marching in.. But great work!! Can't wait to see more!!!
THANK YOU!! Totally get the "brand loyalty" thing - the company for which I design serves a very diverse client base - might wanna check out their stuff HERE:

Again, thank you - and best to you in your marching & musical goals!!
What kind of markers do you use in your non digital renderings? Like in the DCI XL throwback illustrations
Hey! Great question! Not Copic! Ha! ...Way overpriced and unnecessarily packaged, IMO... Probably great if Manga is your thing, but I digress...
I have been a Prismacolor guy for decades - both markers and especially colored pencils...
But here's the "hook" - I don't start in pencil. I found that "muddied" the renderings - Instead, I discovered Sharpie ultra fine point markers in light beige/tan or light slate blue/gray were ideal for sketching the figure and forms prior to coloring - it doesn't run while coloring so initial lines remain in place... I'll use progressively darker fine point pens and markers as I get nearer completion...
Hope this helps!

That's a really cool technique, I would have never thought of that. I've had a deviantart account for years, but I've never really posted anything. This past year, I've been kind of enraptured by drawing band uniforms, and I'll start posting a few on here. I would love to get some input from a professional.
