Sketchbook Friday - Scarlet Witch


This was done for fun in my sketchbook with Copic Markers and Multiliners. I wanted to play around with using a dead line for this piece. A dead line is one has little or no variation in thickness and thinness. It can be tough to pull off because if done badly it can kill a piece. Make it flat and uninteresting. But if done well, it can be very cool. I tend to work more with the thick and thin lines but I am always interested in doing something different.

Today I started working at 6:30am and just finished as of this writing at 7pm. Thankfully my commute only involves trying to get around the dogs while going to work in my studio. There have a been a lot of these days this week. I am producing 35 pencil drawings, some are double page spreads for a project I can never share. And I mean "never". It's an interesting situation that I will gladly share if you ask me about it at a convention. At least I will be paid. Deadline looming on that one. Plus, I have my DC work, and some artwork for buddy/writer Kevin Breaux, for which he has been beyond patient. (Map tomorrow Kevin! Really!) A few inked commissions I took on in December that need to be done in January (Got another one done tonight! Woo!), another project for Gemstone Publishing coming up and a bunch of little things that will keep me busy this month. January is a bit nuts, but I am glad to be busy. Really glad.

Now if it would just warm up. We live on the Sun Coast of the Sunshine State and they have called for the chance of snow here this weekend. Here. Snow. I know it won't be anything like up north but come on, when we moved to Florida three years ago, I swear the chance of snow was not in the brochure.

Have a good weekend everyone. Stay warm and stay safe.
