This blog needs more love, so I figured I'd make a post here. As some of you may know, I'm working on a new webcomic idea that involves a main character that resembles, but is not in fact Neil Gaiman. There are also children with various supernatural abilities, and a village that can't be seen from the outside.
Anyway, I'm still working on the style I want to use for this comic, and I think I hit upon something today. This is a quickie pencil sketch I did, and colored in Photoshop Elements. I did some fancy thing with a brush set to "color" mode over the pencil lines to give them a little "pop", and I sort of like how it looks. What do you think? Could I get away with doing a whole comic in this style? (Click on the image below for a bigger version.)
The example, btw, is a gift art I did for my friend Elise, of her novel characters. Just an FYI, not that it has any real bearing on the rest of this post, aside from the fact that these characters will not be in my comic.
Feedback is very welcome!
