Well, at the moment, I’m still making new watercolour versions of some of my old drawings (partly out of curiosity and partly out of a lack of inspiration).
Today, I thought I’d revisit the drawing that ended up inspiring my old “CRIT” comic series from 2012/13 (Plus, I wanted to see what Suzy would look like in my current art style too). You can also read the full story of how this comic series began here.
As usual, I’ll include the original drawing from 2012 for comparison too.
Plus, as usual, these two pictures are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
Although I’m really proud of how “Overpass (II)” turned out, it required a surprising amount of digital editing after I scanned the original painting.
Well, this is my original “Overpass” drawing from 2012. If you want to know more about how this one drawing ended up inspiring an entire comic, then I’ve written an entire article about it (one year and three days ago precisely), which can be found here.
Oh, here’s some interesting trivia for fans of the original comic series – if it had ever been made into a TV show (which was my original, obviously unproducable, idea for the series before I decided to turn it into a comic). Then the theme tune for it would probably sound something like this song [“Leaving The Light On” By Blank Dogs]. Or at the very least, this song would have been the perfect background music for episode three.
