Ink Tests & Artist Spotlight


[update] I will be adding a link on the side bar for the Artists spotlights.  It will be updated each Monday with a new link.

First things first, I'll explain the Artist Spotlight.  In my post about the incredible Carlos Meglia, some people have commented and emailed me about sharing some of the artists that I follow and am inspired by.  I always think that if I'm aware of an artist then everyone is aware of that artist.  But even masters like Meglia have missed some peoples radar.  Each week, I'm going to give a link to an artist that I really  dig.  

This week it's the dynamic duo that make up the CREATURE BOX, Greg Baldwin and Dave Guertin.  These guys are beasts and there aren't any words that I could say to add to what they do, so go check them out right now.

Now, my incredible attempt at making actual doodles a post worthy image.  Really, can you imagine anything less that I could actually put up as a post.  This was me really just playing around with Painter and Sketchbook Pro to see what kind of inking I could do with the Cintiq.  For projects like Oz, I'm still using brush and ink for the final pages.  But for my graphic novel, I'm going to be going 100% digital for the art so I'm spending some time doing some testing to see what kind of inking tools these programs have.  I like that I can still get some pepper spray and a loose feel.  We'll see in the coming weeks what I can accomplish with this.

There you go, a link to a few amazing artists and a pathetic attempt to wow you with my meaningless scribbles.

Thanks for listening to the people and including an artist spotlight. You're expanding minds Mr. Young. And sweet sketches, I really can't wait for details on your super secret graphic novel. Take care man.

that some cool art.

Hey Scottie can you do a link in the side collum for these posts. one of the best ways for me to find some awesome art is to follow a chain of links from one blogger to the next. it how I found this page.

I know your projects are very different, but what did you think of Humberto's OZ characters for Fairy Quest?

I'm looking forward to the Artist Spotlight -- I'm another one who'd never heard of Meglia, but I've ordered a bunch of his stuff already. Beautiful.

Anyway -- as long as you're looking into tools for digital inking, I want to throw Manga Studio onto the pile. In my opinion, it's by far the best app for digital inking. And if you don't need any of the advanced bits, you can get the basic version for only $50. (Though I do recommend the full version, if only for the amazing "perspective rulers"). I'm not a shill, I just use the program for all my work, and I think it's a hidden gem. Good luck with whatever you go with -- the "tests" are looking great already.

Great thinking about the artist spotlight Skottie! I (shamefully) hadn't heard of Carlos Meglia or the creature Box guys until now!

Thanks so much for the links to other artists. Shit is rad. Hurry up and get a new devil and me up.

Great sketches. I made a bunch of pics like this when I first got my cintiq. :D testing the waters.

I find that Painter has some of the best brushes to get a nice ink splatter effect.
