Hey! Want a print-ready 11x17 pdf of this handsome poster?
Have you checked out the Kickstarter for our indie game, coincidentally also called Night In The Woods? PLEASE DO! Every extra bit helps more than you might think.
It’s been a while since I drew Dog & Dave! I’ve just started thinking about the Christmas Dog & Dave story I wrote last year, and I’m tempted to comic-ify it!… hmm…. could be fun!
I found a few D&D doodles I started ages ago in my sketchbook this evening and decided to “finish” them. Here’s my favourite, which I drew in pencil, and then faffed about with it in ProCreate on my iPad. I like it, it turned out quite nice! :)
Poor Dave, Dog is such a little git to him most of the time!…
Here’s a Mr Focks T-Shirt I designed for Threadless!
Threadless is shit though because:
1) They tell you your designs aren’t T-Shirt worthy, when surely the idea of it is that you’re designing shirts you’d like to wear, and hope others would also like to wear
2) The scoring system is unfair
3) They allow people to design shirts using already trademarked characters that don’t belong to the designers
4) They say they let you know between 3 and 90 days if your shirt will be printed (after scoring has finished) - they don’t, I’m still waiting.
The top picture is an exercise where you draw 6 random shapes/marks in a 6 panel grid and then build on it to make a strip… I ended up with a thirsty giant who has a drink from a river.
The bottom picture is an exercise where you draw something from your surroundings and then develop it into a strip… I started with a picture of my cat curled up on a little table in front of the TV and then he hears on the news that cats are taking over New York!
I also attempted the word ladder exercise, but it turned out a bit poo so I’m not going to post that one! It’s great exercise though, really gets you thinking!
This book is really helping my inspiration, and motivating me loads!
Yay, got some droodling in this evening! I’ve been practicing facial expressions - not really that easy when your character doesn’t have much of a face! here’s one I liked of Astrowagon’s Mike looking unimpressed.
I reckon Keith is probably up to his usual tricks. Mike doesn’t like Keith that much.
If you haven’t been following it, here’s the Astrowagon story so far: http://astrowagon.tumblr.com/astrowagonwebcomic - left on a cliffhanger! I hope to be posting the grand finale soon(ish).
I’m also brainstorming the next story.
this game has
4 days45 Hours left and is still really far from its goal!
it’s a side-scrolling action adventure game done entirely in stop motion, and looks absolutely gorgeous.
please check it out if you get a chance! it would definitely be a shame if it didn’t get funded.
Fixed and bolded how much time is left, only 45 hours to go!!
Finally found myself a copy of the awesome Dead Duck graphic novel/comicy thing in Zanadu Comic Books store whilst I was in Seattle - love it! And the store is also brilliant, super helpful staff!
You can see a lot of Jeff Smith influence in Jay P Fosgitt’s style… looking forward to reading it all :)
