Though my drawings are very synthetic and cartoon like, without accurate proportions, modeling shadows and textures with the paintbrush gives sometimes a realistic touch, a bit like grained photography. This is the wonder of illustration. We can create the universes we want and present it to people’s eyes. Perhaps my lack of virtuosity is a blessing.
Things are moving. Drawing as if writing. No pencil sketch. Only dialogue and fast doodles on a notebook before drawing directly with pen and markers. It’s clumsy, expressive and intuitive. Hopefully, as the story develops, with moments of intellect. Sometimes I fear to be a fool or an idiot. It’s a consequence of being so focused on myself and my work. Perhaps being exposed on the Internet might give me some clues about the path I’m taking. Let’s wait for people’s reactions…
Here is another Page 1. This time I draw directly with pen and paintbrush. No pencil needed. Than I scanned the drawings and paint them on the computer. The painting process still takes too much time. And it is not as fun as with watercolors. I’m considering living it all in black and white. Let’s see how it goes.
Synthesis and flat colors. Easier reading. Let’s hope I won’t get bored.
