Proportion Wheel

Image
I have had the hardest time finding a smallish metric proportion wheel. I have looked in the art stores and on the net to no avail. The closest I can come is a medium sized one 6" that is in both inches and centimeters. Ideally I would like a 10cm (4") proportion wheel with metric measurements. I could make one myself I guess, I do not think it would be that hard. Edit: I ended up buying the large proportion wheel that is metric on one side and imperial on the other. I realised as I'm not carrying it around on me it does not matter if it is big. If you can not find a proportion wheel for your art then maybe consider this. Most comic artists will work at %150 bigger than the finished product. This helps that art look neater and tighter and all round nicer. All you need to do is know your desired size, ie, what it will be printed at then just times that by 1.5 and you'll will have the size you need to draw it at. eg, Desired/print size = 13.5 cm Times this by 1.5

10 years ago

Click on comic to read it larger... I got tagged to do this 10 years ago comic by Adam Ford the rules are as follows: Back to basics comic meme By Amber Draw a ten panel comic about what you were doing ten years ago. Put pen straight to paper - no pencil, no computer, no planning, no starting again if you make a mistake. Simply draw, scan, publish. Tag some people who you'd like to see do the meme too. Oh and if you want to do it even if you haven't been tagged you are most welcome! He also tagged Mandy Ord, you can see her comic here I must admit I did this in two sittings (otherwise I would have not been able to do it) I first drew the panels and wrote in the text as I went (except the speech bubbles). The next day I went back and drew the images for the panels as well as the accompanying speech bubbles. Drawn in a fairly loose storyboard style with some sort of ball point pen on graph paper. I pained me not to be able to 'fix' a few words and lines outside bord

Sketches

Image
I've been trying to get back into sketching for sketching sake lately. Not so much to make interesting drawings (although that may happen) but to practice and gain experience to draw better (hopefully)

Faults

Image
Hope this doesn't come across that I think I don't have faults. We all have faults but when you look for them they seem to hide behind our ego.
