Color- not going well

Going to need some new color.
I'm fine with line and copic gray.
I've ruined myself with digital color.
 what's great about digital color. Why I was wild about it the first time I used it.
Flat color, as large as you wanted it to spread. Perfectly flat.
No watercolor blotchiness.

This will be the last I share of this project.
NDA sort of cautions.
Just getting started.

Unknowable public reception


I revised the top art to look like the bottom art before I published it on Tumblr.
I guess that helped it get a strangely robust reaction.
To me, it's a drawing I barely saved from being a complete unappealing mess.
And it gets 50 'notes' and rts.
It must be the extra critter eyes in the black field.

Card Thumbnails


24 images. 12 cards. 
Over a third thumbnailed.

12 images left to thumbnail.
Then it is uncharted country.
Full color art on paper.
Done.

Inktober this year will be nothing elaborate


















I was going to skip inktober (because of upper deck) and instead decided they made good warm ups. My rule for this batch is don't waste time. Strictly doodle level for this year.

All done.
Some fun stuff. Some complete losses.

The color blind artist prepares




So I paid 18 bucks for these sharpies.
But before I can use them I need to sample the cap color so I know what the hell color I am using. Then use that blue masking tape holding the markers in alignment to make a cigar ring on the marker so I can write the color on it.
So I don't make bright green instead of yellow super heroes.

I've marked them up.
Now I'll put them in different cups.
Way too much pink for my 18 bucks.
I'll use it to blend a bit on some warm stuff.

Feel free to tell me where it is all wrong.
If you can read it.

Rough, then grid




Super rough, then I made a grid to match parts, then I moved other parts to better match the grid. Then I'll light table. Got three to do. Moon colony type cityscapes.
I worked awfully hard on this to have it be this yuck.
But I need to move on to the Marvel card project.
3rd time is the charm. 
Communication breakdown of sorts.
Never having the space scale and setting firmly in my mind.
The big deal was I never conveyed the space was entirely enclosed.
We'll see if this one works.
He's ready to pass his deadline on it and just forget this one.



Going to bring up all 3 at once.
