So work has started up in earnest, and I'm no longer slacking and pecking away at spec stuff and internets/personal stuff. Thus I have been sucked into a black hole from whence only rambling twitter posts emerge .... anyway, have some pictures of my workspace where I'm working hard on comics:
This is my drawing desk. I've had it since I was a first year at animation school and it came with me when I moved from Ontario to Nova Scotia. Between Tim and I we have four desks (two drawing desks, two computer desks) and they take up most of the master bedroom in our 2 bed apartment (we sleep in the smaller bedroom. Hey, when you don't have a lot of space and you have a lot of desks, you make do). My kitty likes to sit behind my drawing desk on the windowsill, especially in the morning when the sun's coming directly through the window.
This is my messy reference board/space for art supplies, to the right of my desk. I keep character designs pinned to the ref board, so I can look at them while I'm drawing the characters in the actual comic. It keeps me on model (mostly). I collect bottles of ink and crappy watercolour brushes that I don't use, too.
Some pages I've been working on this week. I got to draw lots of crazy expressions and characters freaking out. It was fun. My originals are always a huge mess. I bought a lightbox recently and hope to eventually make it a part of my comic drawing process so I can get cleaner pages, and maybe cut out the incessant second guessing of my comic layouts that seems to be dogging me lately.
KITTY DOES NOT APPROVE OF COMICS.
