Decemboobs 2016. Entry 8, 9, 10

A triple! Probably the last one I'll do based on photos from The Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society. At least for a while; there are plenty of other potentially fun source images from that show alone. Original image from their all-nude, all-female performance of The Tempest, Brooklyn Edition

After struggling so hard with the previous image, I decided to loosen up with this one. Instead of trying to get every fold and angle correct, I decided to just draw as if this was one of my comics; then I experimented with brushes and coloring in Sketchbook 8 a bit. The colours are mostly the copic colour set, but I used a standard synthetic brush. I don't know if the end result is any better, but the process was a lot more fun. 

Today I learned... that my Cintiq's colour calibration really needs work. Or maybe it's time for a replacement. Actually, that wasn't news, but it's always a bit of a surprise how the colours turn out when I move the image over to Photoshop and show it on the big iMac screen. It's... a lot more saturated and a lot more like the colours I associate with the names of each Copic colour I used. Some of the smudges in the background are transformed utterly, and that bothers me a little. I guess I could have faded them out in Photoshop, but instead I'm leaving it as is as a reminder to myself to do something about the colour settings on the Cintiq.

Decemboobs 2016, Entry 6

From An End And Two Beginnings at the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

Ugh, this is bad. You know, sometimes I think the reason I enjoy drawing is because it's very difficult. I get to pour all my focus into something and grind through it until it works. Not that this one does, mind. I came across this image, thought "this might be tricky" then decided to draw it anyway. I need to expand my repertoire of poses and what better way than to practice with a difficult one? One with odd angles and quite a bit of perspective warping? For a while, though, this image looked like it was shaping up fine. And then, suddenly, it wasn't. Somewhere, an angle or a proportion was wrong, and boom, everything turned out higgledy-piggledy. I guess with shading, I would have been able to indicate where exactly that other breast was, but it's getting late already. This is what I've got to show for my drawing time today. Tomorrow will be another day.

There was no Decemboobs drawing yesterday because I had some business to take care of. There won’t be one today because I’m going to a concert tonight. That’s what happens when you have a non-drawing day job. Though the fact that I feel the need to explain a short absence for the first time in years is a sign of positive change: I do have some time to draw right now; I just decide to spend it on something else from time to time.

Will try to catch up with some double or triple entries unless the absence persists into the weekend. Which I don’t think it will, but it might.

Decem-WHOOPS 2016, Entry 5

The image above is what I think of as a bread-and-butter pose. Over an artist’s lifetime, you’ll drawn poses like this one hundreds of times. It still doesn’t hurt to remind yourself of how they work from time to time. And of course, even a familiar, simple source image can become a study in... something. In this case, knees, as it turned out. The image source is the post “A Last Touch Of Sun” from The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society and you can see the lady has interesting knees. 

It’d have been a lot clearer in the drawing itself if I hadn’t found myself wondering what I was going to do with it after the (digital) pencil sketch was done. I decided to add a layer underneath it (in Sketchbook Pro 8) and colour that in with Copic Markers. My wife is a wizard with Sketchbook’s Copic Markers, because she grew up with them. I... did not. They’re not part of the school toolkit in the Netherlands - we got Wasco instead. Anyway. I made the layer, but instead of coloring on it, I stayed on the pencil layer and made a bit of a mess out of the whole thing. And I decided to stop there and then. So you’re getting a part-finished, part-messed-up image today. Actually, I kind of like the energy it gained from the rough coloring with the Copic Markers. It’s not clean and polished, but it has something, y’know?

I’ll probably stick with images from the Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society for a few more days, because it saves me time looking for other sources. Not the whole month, though.

Decemboobs 2016 Entry 4

An early start today! Reference is another one from The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society. I’ll be sticking with that resource for a while as it’s so easy to find good source material there.


Not entirely happy with the arm. But it’ll have to do for today as we have visitors coming in a little bit.

Sorry but no. I don't do this. A +fav is an expression of the fact that you like a piece of art, not a favor to be traded.

Thanks for the favs of my height charts, also I was wondering, would you perhaps be interested in an art trade someday?  I've been admiring your artwork and characters for a while now and I think an art trade would be really fun

I'd like to, some time... but my day job has been hitting me very hard in the past few months and it's not showing any signs of letting up. So, at a later time, I hope.

Oh yeah I've read enough about that on your updates to your comic, my day job has had a pretty good hold on me as well, my comic has been on hiatus as well, man it sucks, but yeah a later time would be good, just go ahead and hit me up whenever you get some free time
