Another “Alternate Versions” Art Preview :)

Well, since the critic-style article I’d planned to post today didn’t seem as good on reflection as it had done when I’d originally written it, I didn’t really feel like posting it.

Still, since I also didn’t want to post nothing today, I thought that I’d show off some alternate “work in progress” versions of paintings that will appear here next August/September.

And, yes, although the daily art posts appearing here between about mid-late January and mid-June 2019 will mostly consist of photo-based landscapes, there will be a much greater mixture between these and my more usual type of paintings after this 🙂

Anyway, here are some “work in progress” versions of next August/September’s paintings. Enjoy 🙂

It’s Another “Alternate Versions” Art Preview

Well, since I wasn’t quite satisfied with the article I’d planned to post today, I thought that I’d show off some alternate versions of a few of next year’s art instead 🙂

As I’ve mentioned before, many of next year’s paintings/drawings will be realistic landscapes based on photos I’ve taken (I’ve kind of had to go in this direction due to various planning time, inspiration etc.. related reasons). Most of the alternate versions here are earlier “work in progress” versions with fewer digital effects than in the finished versions.

Anyway, enjoy 🙂

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Reverie” Webcomic Mini Series

2017 Artwork Damania Reverie lineart article sketch

Well, since my “Damania Reverie” webcomic mini series finished yesterday, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off the “work in progress” line art that I scanned whilst making the comic.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t actually that many major dialogue or art changes between the line art and the finished comics in this mini series. The most major one is probably in the “Glass Houses” comic. Originally, Harvey found a large bag of drugs but I decided to change this to counterfeit coins in the final comic both because I thought that this comic update was already a bit too much on the “gloomy and serious” side of things and also because it was a subtle reference to this comic from last year.

The main art changes are the fact that a mirror looks very different in one scene and the fact that, in the second-to-last comic, Harvey imagines the villain carrying a gun.

The main dialogue change is where Derek refers to Harvey’s Jungian “Shadow“. Although this was a more technically accurate description, I had to cut it for length and pacing reasons.

Anyway, here’s the line art. As usual, you can see a larger version of each piece of line art by clicking on it.

New Line Art Preview :)

2016 Artwork New Line art preview August

Well, I’d originally written and scheduled a full article for today – but, it really wasn’t that great (even after editing it quite a bit on at least one occasion).

So, instead, I thought that I’d give you all a preview of the “work in progress” line art for six of my upcoming paintings that will appear here next year (as I’ve mentioned a few times before, I tend to make my art ridiculously far in advance – it’s about the only real way to make consistent daily art posts).

Although I don’t scan the line art for all of my paintings, I sometimes tend to do it for the best ones -so, this preview gallery is also a “best of” gallery…. from the future!

Anyway, enjoy 🙂 And stay tuned for a proper article tomorrow 🙂

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Redux” Webcomic Mini Series

2016 Artwork Damania redux lineart article sketch

As regular readers of this site probably know, I’ve been talking a lot about a webcomic mini-series that I posted earlier this month. Anyway, at the time of writing, I’ve just finished the series.

So, as a bonus, I thought that I’d provide the “work in progress” line art for each comic (including the comic that got left out of the series, in it’s original intended location in the series).

As you’ll probably be able to see, there were a few small dialogue and art changes between these unfinished versions and the comics that were originally posted here earlier this month. The line art also contains all of my original mistakes too since, well, every artist makes mistakes every now and then.

Each of these comics can be enlarged by clicking on them. Anyway, enjoy 🙂
