Either I’ve been neglecting my RSS reader for too long, or some of my favorite bloggers have been particularly inspired over the past week. Whatever the case, I’ve recently noticed some great stuff coming from some of the websites that I read regularly. Check ’em out!
I sat down to do some “serious” gouache sketching last night.
I was getting bored waiting for the paint to dry and I ended up painting this in the margin.
This is part three in my series of tutorials about creating comic art on the computer. Check out Parts 1 & 2 here:
Part 1: Sketching and Pencilling in Photoshop
Part 2: Inking in Illustrator
This part will be about coloring your line drawing in Photoshop. Enjoy!
These are some textures I’ve made. They all come from photographs that I’ve taken in the woods, in my yard, and several other places around the world. Enjoy!

This is part two in my series of tutorials about how to make comic book art on the computer. If you have not read the first part, Sketching and Pencilling in Photoshop, you might want to give it a look. Go ahead, I’ll wait…
Ready? Okay, now that we have a nice and refined pencil sketch, it’s time to give it some ink.
Here are a few pages from the small sketchbook that I keep in my purse.
I recently received a request to write a tutorial about creating comic book art on the computer. Although I don’t work as a comic artist, I’ve always been fascinated by the process. So, this will be part one in a series of tutorials that will outline how I would make a comic digitally.
This was a very fun experiment, and I hope all of you, even you non-comic artists, can learn something new by this series. And by all means, if there are any “real” comic artists out there with any input, please leave a comment on this post.
David Coleman is one of my favorite artists that I’ve come across in the blogosphere. I absolutely love his animal sketches, and his book The Art of Animal Character Design is a must-have for your bookshelf.
David works mainly in the animation industry and currently works for Sony Pictures Animation. He has designed characters for major films such as Open Season and Surf’s Up.
One quick browse through his blog, and you will agree that he is a master at sketching and design. Check it out at davidcolman.blogspot.com. You can also find his portfolio website at www.davidsdoodles.com.
If that’s not enough for you, there is a wonderful in-depth interview with David featuring plenty of images courtesy of the Character Design blog. Read it here: david-colman-interview.blogspot.com.
