The Grave Keeper & a Need to Step it Up.


This is a character study for a character in my original graphic novel.

I've been very slack with my blog lately. I noticed that the only thing I'm posting is covers that I've done along with a quick sentence or two that basically says "this is a cover for....". While it's cool to show you all my latest cover work, I think it's making for a slightly boring blog and I'm trying to come up with something to remedy that. I'm not sure what I'll come up with the keep me posting regular but I'll try to cook something up. If you have any ideas let me know.

One idea I had was to use you all here and on Twitter to help craft a scene each day. I'm not sure if it would just be a random scene each day, or a scene that would keep adding onto the previous image. Basically it could be a one image a day webcomic. I'm not sure it work or not, but could be interesting to jump genres every other image and where that story could go. Who knows.

What do you all think?

I love it. It's really a great idea. I like the idea that it's a scene that adds onto itself daily.

Wouldn't this eventually become yet another job on top of all your comics work? I like to do sketches aside from my comic stuff for *fun*, but this idea sounds to me like you'll be making a lot of work for yourself.

Saying that; i'll still check it out, (whatever you end up doing) just don't burn yourself out man.

Dec.

I think everyday, you should pick a random tweet from one of your followers and sketch it out. It would be cool to see your take on peoples lives.

i like the tweet thing, especially since you are the self proclaimed tweetard. get people to give you interesting things that have happened to them lately and put your own thought on it. dont make too much work tho man. your little rugrat is gunna keep yer hands full haha

ooooo, that's not a bad idea. not bad at all. that would be easier than trying to tell a story.

Well I'll chime in. I agree your cover work is great but not all that interesting. But your work and style is intriguing.

So anything that shows your process and how your work would be great to see. Let's see more of your graphic novel.

Talk about how you work, what inspires you, show us stuff. All artists have their own ways of working and ways of doing things and that's what makes things interesting.

Looks sweet Skottie, can't wait for a finished product.

Got a non art related question for ya. Itunes took "Bearning Beard" off the site and I can't find the damn song anywhere. What Clutch albumn is that from?
My computer crashed and I didn't have that one backed up. Thanks

It enormously seems to me an impressive image that you could remove from its sort, not, to put something anyway Kawai that goes off key… not, in if already it is an art work. Sa├║dos

Im happy you are sharing your art.
I agree, dont give your self extra work. =)

I would love to see your inking and coloring process. The video of your digital start was really interesting and would love to see the steps after that. =)

i think just continuing with DRAW BLOCK would be enough of a fan service. :)
