Lead Poets Society: Come out, Come out Where Ever You Are


This weeks drawing night topic, A Kid and a Monster. I try to turn the idea around a little each time. If it's "Animals eating people" night, then I draw a cute squirrel instead of the bear. So tonight, instead of the monster under the bed freaking out the kid, I have the kid getting ready to shoot the monster in the face! Fuck you Monster!!!!

Instead of a drawing to warm up this morning, I chose to color this piece in my 30 minute time slot instead use this as my warm up. It's a fun piece and that's about it. This is one of those times that you just enjoy drawing with no care about it being "good" or "correct". It is what it is that's fine with me.

And, if there any artists out there that want a little insight on the ins and outs of being a full time comic artist, go to my side bar and click the Around Comics page for episode 118.

enjoy

What did you use to color it?
Photoshop? Markers? Eitherway, it looks great.

Once you get enough (like 50) of the 30-minutes sketches done you should put out a sketch/art book of them all.

Ryan said...

niCe! I have been looking for ways to get back into the craft and Lead Poets Society is a great idea. Do you post the ideas on the week's topics anywhere? If you don't mind maybe you could mention the subject to draw for that week on Around Comics or just post it on your blog somewhere. I'd like participate at home. It'd also be sweet to see what other people that attended came up with.

skottie,

the around comics was great. very helpful as i am trying to learn that difference between "good and good enough" doing a monthly book and holding down the day job.

it's great that you guys are so candid about how you work.

thanks.
