The brunet felt the Duke moving again, back down under the covers towards him. Calloused hands drew down his chest and his ribs before resting on his hips and wrapping around them. The Duke pressed himself against Mike’s back, holding him tightly—almost safely in his embrace. He cradled him, leaning his bearded chin on Mike’s soft hair. “Come on, Mike, tell Dr. Duke about all your problems.”
Mike made no reaction to the Duke’s sudden and unwarranted closeness. “I don’t come here to talk to you.”
“Et alors?” The Duke replied in that awful French accent of his. “Pretend you’re talking to yourself, then. It’s not doing you any good to leave my mansion still frustrated.”

Felt like making a little drawr-doodle illustration for this delicious fic I commissioned. And yeah I more or less ship Duke with everyone.(&#8230;Duke you&#8217;re not Dr.Phil stop that)

"The Pride of Baghdad" by Brian K Vaughan

I saw this comic book in my lecturer&#8217;s office one time, and I regret not asking to borrow it (it was our last meeting before I graduated) because even though I only took a few peeks of it, it really caught my attention. And now&#8230; FINALLY I have found the title of the comic, so now I can look it up again and actually read this awesome piece of art.
From what I&#8217;ve seen, the story is about a group of lions that lives in a zoo in Baghdad, and one day the city is under attack and the bombs that drops from the sky more or less set the animals free. So now the lions (+ a lot of other exotic animals from the zoo) has to survive in the middle of a war between the humans.
Oh gosh, even tho I haven&#8217;t read the whole comic yet, I would still recommend it. The artwork, the overall plot and the action really is something I haven&#8217;t seen before. (But that&#8217;s because I suck at finding comics in my taste)

abbydoodles:

Aforementioned smaller crop. I like this version better because you can see their faces, especially Ben’s big old doofy grin, which is my favourite part of this piece hands down. Also a rare glimpse of Jonathan looking somewhat pleasant, shock and awe!

I agree! The cropped version looks much better. Mainly because it makes the composition better. In the first version you had way too much &#8220;space&#8221; to the left, and you placed one of the character in the centre (a big no-no when it comes to composition is to place key objects in the centre of the image).
Also, something bothers me when it comes to the horizon line here, I think you have unintenitonally created a tangent when the vanishing point &#8220;merge&#8221; with the front characters sides. You could easily fix this by either place the horizon line a bit farther down or change the position of the right arm, making it visible and breaks the tangent-effect.
I think you could&#8217;ve added more objects here to establish more lightsource. Some streetlights along the road would work better for a backlight. The citylights in the background is theoretically too far away to alone create a backlight on the characters.
I also think it would create a nice contrast if you mad the buildings much darker - almost black - and just let the lit windows pop out. It often looks more natural and is easier to draw.
And the buildings to the left are not straight, even though the earth is round or a building is built on a hill, you always aim to make it as straight as possible to live in.

As a final protip, I can sugget that you draw some grass and vegetation popping out from the sides of the road instead of one straight line, it will give the background more &#8220;flesh&#8221; and appear a bit more natural. You don&#8217;t need to be super-detailed with this, just drawing silhouettes of plants and grass. It will make the &#8220;transition&#8221; betwen grass and road feel much more natural.

Crosshatching a dark gradient!

foervraengd:

Gonna do a gradient using the crosshatch technique! I start off with one “layer” of vertical strokes, as you can see they are not filling the whole area immideately, instead if work my way up with short strokes.

This is how it will look like once I’ve filled the area I’m gonna crosshatch.

Now I add another “layer” of strokes, this time they are horizontal.(I know it’s blurry but you can see it anyhow)

Aaaand now to the third “layer” which is diagonally, take notice that I cover the whole area with the layers. This is gonna be a dark gradient!

I repeat the process I described by using a bit thicker pen (0.1 mm and 0.3 mm around the darkest) and crosshatch the gradient effect. Then I fill the rest with black (betanuri) and finish it all by stretching my wrists.

Reblogging 1 year old Protip-post! :D I remember this one got featured in the DIY-tag.

Velociraptors going on a adventure!

Process shots from today’s stream! It was very very fun and a great excercise! I soo wanna finish this painting. But tomorrow I need to work on some more important stuff (like comic pages heh).

Note to self that needs to be fixed:

- The perspective of the left raptors body is probably a bit off.

- Find a color scheme that fits with the mood I imagine the painting with.

I should do more dinosaur-art. It’s so fun to do.

The Difference Between A Wacom Pen Tablet and A Mouse
For people unfamiliar with digital art, the concept behind how it’s even done makes little sense but the really key thing that enables it, are wacom tablets. To illustrate this, here are just two examples of what using a pen over a mouse means using continuous brushstrokes. I think of it as: if a mouse is a pistol and a click is a bullet, a wacom pen is Iron Man and using it is like having a salvo of laser-guided fly-by-wire rockets… that play Black Sabbath. A mouse, you click once or click and hold, it has one degree of pressure. A wacom pen is like, well, a real pen or a brush, just much more versatile. The relation between the tablet surface and the pen is one that allows it to pick up how hard you’re pressing, the angle the pen is being held at, and the way it’s being rotated in your hands. This allows single brush strokes to control opacity, scatter, texture, thickness, color mixing, and direction. I give such basic examples, because I think it’s there that you can see: “This is what you can do with literally a 1 second brushstroke” Skill-level and experience are irrelevant to being able to do basic tasks like loosely mixing two colors and laying down a line.

if you guys haven&#8217;t heard of Sam Spratt before, you should really follow his tumblr. His posts are inspiring, his art is beautiful, and his advice is filled with wisdom.

"God Jul" Mean "Merry Christmas" in swedish :3

Some days ago, I made some christmas cards in school with my buddies. They’re going to be sold at a market in Gävle, so I scanned them so I could at least keep a digital copy of them. I hope those who buy one of my cards will like them :3
