Interview with a Hamster

The comicbook website "Outhouse" is doing a multi-part interview with me and a bunch of other artists as part of their "31 days of Halloween" feature. They are featuring some of my creature concept art that I'm doing for Hamm*Starr.

Here is part two.

One of the other artists featured wrote a nice comment, "...the depth of development you're applying to your characters' visuals is practically Disneyesque. If this were to be adapted to animation, you'd already have their 'looks' down cold. I don't know how many times I've forgotten whether a character is right or left handed and so have to change a figure's position only to discover I have left out the scabbard to the sword he's brandishing in the last four pages too. Character sheets! Gotta' do them."

And for anyone who may have missed it, part one.

The Hunting Lesson

Here are some rough layouts and sketches I just did for a piece called "the Hunting Lesson." It's a piece I am working on for a comic anthology.

I'm working on inking the final art right now. I like to ink on vellum over my pencils, it's a lot less stressful. I used blue pencil even though I'm not inking directly on them, I usually will start out with light lines in blue, and I switch to regular pencil as I'm doing tighter, cleaner detail. Sometimes even getting very dark, with markers or black prismacolor pencils. But this time I'm drawing the detail while I am inking. Doing a very light pencil drawing on the vellum, before inks.
