Didja miss me? No? I see. Well, here's some new art anyway!

It's not just different faces; if you pay attention, they all have slightly different body types, bust sizes, heights, etc.

It's a little extra work, mind, but it's worth it to avoid cookie-cutter art (I won't name names, but a few big timers at Marvel especially are guilty of just changing hairstyles, costumes, colors, and nothing else).

Soup sock,

I definitely had noticed those different body types!
I can't blame those guys really: 1+ pages a day of art with characters you probably don't care much about - I can see how they would take the cookie cutter approach, just to stay sane. Sean Phillips strikes a good balance of speed and variety to me, but a lot of his characters still look like him!

Oh, I understand the reasoning. And certainly I'm not one who's yet able to boast about a professional working speed (getting closer...). On the other hand, it was literally about an extra minute or two to make sure Julia was shorter than Kathryn in this piece.

I wish I could draw like Phillips. When I've tried, I just get a sloppy mess. He really knows what he's doing.

Well despite what his Wiki says, he was doing pro jobs when he was still in school so he has a slight advantage. The guy has literally never done anything else.
Yours is a different style of course, but very awesome!

I love the intense look in both of their eyes. It really sells the whole picture.

Thanks! I try to pay a lot of attention to the acting when I draw. I don't feel I have the expressivity of, say, Neal Adams, but I try my best to make sure the eyes are selling the proper goods.
TheSmilingPsycho 18th Sep 2012, 8:22 AM edit delete reply
Yea, the eyes are usually what matters most. Because you can contort a person's mouth all you want, but if your eye placement is just a tad off it can completely change their expression. Like they say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. Do you ever find yourself mimicking the faces of the people you're drawing? I do that all the time. I think it actually helps, too.

I keep a mirror behind my drawing table, facing out. Almost every expression in the book so far is based slightly to heavily to completely on my "acting". The hands too. There's a lot of me in these girls. That sounds wrong, but I'm moving on.

so that's how you make them look so real o_o looks like this one will be exciting XD

..I do find that I make the same expressions the characters are making when I draw them. Just like..unconsciously. :P

I would probably do that too, but when I'm not acting for the mirror, I'm usually singing along very loudly (and sometimes well) to U2 or Matchbox Twenty.

Oh, and this one is quite exciting -- Kathryn leads them on a mini-quest to save Julia! On the OCEAN!
TheSmilingPsycho 18th Sep 2012, 1:33 PM edit delete reply
Yea, well, there's a lot of "me" in Dexter. That sounds worse. :)

This was a fun piece to do, though I was nervous that my audience might react poorly to it, as it so brashly channels Medieval painting themes and is more than a bit Freudian about it...

(I honestly didn't know if I could pull off the ocean when I started.:D )
