Character Designs A Plenty!





I decided to ink up some character designs I've been working on as of late. Some of these are ideas for TV shows, comics, whatnot (the whatnot being scented bath soaps that I will sell for $24.95 plus shipping and handling).

You're so demanding!

I second Caleb.

I'm not a fan of the Man kicking the dog one, as I think the black star-shape muddles up the picture, and Ker-Splunk seems to be the wrong sound ones foot makes when making contact with arse of Dog. I should know, kicking dogs is actually a hobby of mine. Ker-Splunk is more the sound of throwing a stone in a lake, like when Calvin and Hobbes went "Spelunking" that one time.

Beyond that, these are indeed awesome.

Scott Brothers said...

Yeah, I think you're right about the star shape, although I wanted the Ker-Splunk to be wrong sound entirely. Maybe Ba-Whack!

I’ll take two scented bath soaps of the drunk dog please. I don’t know if this has been asked before, but I’m curious about what kind of pens you use to ink.

Scott Brothers said...

Mostly Micron pens. Specifically 08
for the bulk of the line work, the 05 and 03 for finer detail and a Sharpie or Prisma Color for big areas of black. I found that Microns can take a beating, and they don't run out of ink as quickly. I like doing thick thin lines and Microns give me the best control, I'll just go over a certain line, back and forth, until it's the thickness I want. I've tried brush pens in the past, and although I love the look of the thick thin with a brush pen, I don't have the sort of control I want. Sorry for the long-winded answer, brevity is not my forte.

"Ba-Whap"... ha ha ha ha ha! What an awesome sound.

Also, for some reason I thought all your inking was done digitally! You are a good inker. Have you ever tried Crow Quill pen nibs? I ink with pens and have been considering moving onto either brush or crow quill for awhile.

Thanks! Years of practice, I guess. Yeah, I like working with pens because of the old-school feel of it (for lack of a better word). I love vector linework and artists who use vector programs like Flash and Illustrator, but more often than not you can tell it's vector and something is lost in translation. No, I've never tried Crow Quill, but maybe I should. Thanks for the tip!
