More Harvest Moon

All right, here's the full thing of the one-page Harvest Moon comic I did. I'll add in the dialog when I add the color, which could take a bit, because like I said, I'm cracking out the paints on this one. And let me assure you all, I can NOT paint. In the meantime, you can make up your own dialog if you like... for real comedy, I'd suggest you imagine them talking about politics or religion!

If I had the chance (and if someone would be willing to pay me to do it), I'd love to do a full length Harvest Moon graphic novel... the game is kinda 'niche', tho, so I'm not sure how well something like that might sell...

Harvest Moon

Here's something I've been working on... a couple panels from a one page comic based on the video game Harvest Moon. I'm experimenting a little with the stack of art supplies I've got in my drawers... this is drawn on Watercolor Paper instead of my usual Smooth Bristol, and I had a hell of a time getting smooth lines on there. If you look close, you can probably see some spots where I over-corrected. And if you're wondering why it's drawn on Watercolor Paper, well... I'm pretty much planning on ruining it with the crusty old tubes of Watercolors I found in my closet. Don't worry, tho, I'll post the full black and white version before I do that.

I love Harvest Moon. Seriously. I BEAT SOMEONE UP ONCE for making fun of Harvest Moon. Anyways, enjoy, and definately tell me what you think!

The Next Step

Okay everyone, here's the Cannonball and Sunspot picture again, this time with some colors added in.

Cannonball and Sunspot Colors

Now, all you artists out there, here's where I need some honest opinions, because color is definately not something I've ever done much of. How's this look? Does it need more, or does it look finished? I've tried going in and doing some shading, but I just CAN'T draw with a mouse, and my shadows end up looking all crummy. Anyone got any techniques for this that they're willing to share? I've tried Lassoing the area I want to shade / highlight, but the Polygon Lasso comes out too jagged and the regular Lasso gives me the same problem as the paintbrush... just too tough to draw with the mouse. Anyways, what do you all think?

Some new Inks

Hey, anyone remember these pencils I did like forever ago?

Cannonball and Sunspot Pencils

In case you couldn't tell, it's Cannonball and Sunspot from X-Force / X-Men / The New Mutants / or whatever team they're on in current Marvel continuity. Here's the inked version:

Yeah, I redrew their legs... so, tell me what you think!
