A random collection of material from comic artist Kevin Nowlan. Started with the best of intentions, but like most other efforts, doomed to perish from neglect as soon as the novelty wears off.
You've got a real gift - well maybe it's just hard earned practice - for blending the areas of solid black and the hatched areas between the black and white; where and how far the single hatching goes, where the crossed hatching goes etc. Always so 'right'
Tastes like chicken! Great handling of light and shadow, Kevin!
He was hungry heheHugo S.
Amazing work! really nice lighting, and good to see the pencil and inks, enjoying the Blog.
Mr. Nowlan, why the change? the first is focused where you want your eye to be. the last one, with the big white glare from his back, is distracting, and takes away the focus of what wolvie is doing.what was the reason for the switch?peace out
I knew I'd be coloring this one so I decided to put some details in the shadow areas, knowing that I could keep the different light sources (direct light and reflected light) clear by using light and dark colors respectively. You're only seeing the inks here. I didn't post the colors because they got a little messed up in the translation. Either I bungled the coding or the separator fowled it up. But you're right, the overall lighting effect should still have been along the lines of the rough sketch. I was just trying to give it a little more depth.
