Digital doodling


Well, I am just as tired of looking at that stupid kid in the previous post as you are, but I have been busy with some new projects, and though I have been enjoying the work, I can't really share the drawings just yet. I almost posted some rough drawings of DC covers and the like, but it just felt wrong to put that stuff here.

So, I decided to shuffle through my folders and see if there was anything lurking around that might be worth sharing. When I stumbled onto these experiments, I thought they might be of some interest.

What I have here are a handful of completely digital sketches. Mostly, these are learning exercises, and are usually abandoned as soon as I feel I have gained some knowledge or have lost interest. Occasionally, I end up with a few doodles I find hard to throw out, so I stick them in a folder and forget about them, at least until this blog gave me an excuse to drag them out into the light.

Pulled from the archives (conveniently located next to the trash can), here are a few more oddballs. If only I could remember what exactly I learned.

AHHH!!! Mmm this stuff is good! My favorite would have to be the nymph one.

Josh I think it would be neat to see cover prelims and all that jazz... it is an interesting process that you wouldn't share for every cover, but maybe one or 2.

Judging from these beautiful pieces when compared to what you do with pen and paper, I'd say that what you learned was that tools are a means for expressing your talent and not the talent itself.

That said, I think I speak for John H. and all the other original art collectors when I say don't give up the pen and paper.
