The steps behind today’s comic on floraverse
Really, the sketch stage is more like a sort of shorthand memo on what I want the finished drawing to look like. It isn’t until the third part that I know what I want to do, and then I start rendering it to get the finished look of the fourth image.
I’m teaching a free drawing class this Thurs at noon. “How to draw EVERYTHING.” Register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7099906476908411905
Those little animation clips allowed me to start working on the film as an animator. I was participating on the artistic direction of the project. I hadn’t yet read the script but i was going to discover it soon enough.
sorry for my bad hand writing
The point I’m trying to drive home, is that draw things the way that best suits you. How-to-books had me all mixed up in my teen years, but then I decided to break the rules and do things my way.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

I had the process images lying around so I thought I’d make a gif.
Scanned, adjusted, sent, approved, she’s done! Yay! It felt good to paint again, and It actually got me raring to attack one more piece for my children’s book portfolio. Next one will be about a baby zebra bothering a whale!
I am really mad at how bad the photos for the process shots on this step are, by the way.. they are so faint! I’m sorry, I am never leaving my camera behind again.

argyrism asked you:
This may/may not be true for other people, but when I’m wondering about how you choose your colors, I’m wondering about how you make everything, well, harmonic. Noisemaster is a good example of this: he’s got a wide range of colors, but they all work well together, so it doesn’t end up looking garish. So, how do you go about something like that?
Thank you! I want Noisemaster’s pages to look like I’m just selecting colors at random, but it’s really pretty simple. Sure, I use a lot of complementary pairs, triadic colors, etc., but I generally don’t have too much Color Theory Terminology in my head as I’m planning these pages out.
I know I’m not great at technical explanations, but I hope this sheds a little light on what I’m doing!
