It's been quite some time since we've posted art around here. Truth is, after the mad push to get the comic done and ready for comic-con, I attended to other parts of our art lives.
But have no fear, I've been tossing ideas back and forth for the next issue and I'm in the process of trying to nail some stuff down. At this point in time, I'll be continuing the werewhale story into issue #2, while Chris, Jon and Jay will probably do something entirely different. (Maybe introduce another creature or story)
For the past month, I've been busy writing a new tale. One that helps establish the story from part one. Last night, I broke out the sculptey and started modeling a new werewhale. I wanted something more human, and more fierce. My plan is to do at least a whole bust, I'd love to do the whole body. (I originally bought 4 bars of clay, and it's going to take much more than I had thought. And I need to figure out how much clay can be put in the oven, and if a wire frame can accompany it.)
Hope you like.
Little bit of progress. I haven't done any sculpting in about 10 years. Lots of fun. I was originally only going to do the head, but today I went out and got some wire for skeleton support.
I've added a bit more. I've run out of clay, and the Blick store doesn't have any more gray sculpey. So I guess I'll have to pause this now.
I'm realizing that I should have built a better stronger base, and skeleton. Oh well, chalk it up to - learning as I go.
A little bit of progress;
Working on a little editorial style illustration.
