This came out of that immersion.
Will post the nitty-gritty soon. There is a process I seem to follow for my own style, if there is one.
November is fast approaching, more quicker than you might think. The last quarter of 2013 is important for me as well as my coleagues whi are vying to publish their own brand of komiks [comics], and I for one, am anxious and nervous about it.
If you are following this blog, you might have noticed that my posts have been studies of what I would like my illustration to be. And that is true.
This past weekend, I barricaded myself inside my matchbox apartment, took out my copies of Marshall Law, Wasted, Conan The Barbarian, and various Trident comics titles. And I do have a copy of The Philippine Comic Artists Portfolio, by Pyramid Publishing, plates from greats like Redondo, Malgapo, Infante among others.
Such heavy weights to carry, such beautiful artwork to emulate.
And I have no I dea what my artwork would be like. So I looked at how these artists did their work - the shadows, facial nuances, composition.
It was total immersion. I even played The Lord of the Rings Audiobook for ambience.
