Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Why hasn't someone swooped you up and made you draw things in a dark cave for profit?

    I love your drawings but they depress me because I get the distinct feeling ill never be able to dive into a 12 issue trade paperback graphic novel that would sink my sanity in your imagination.

    Here's to hoping I am desperately wrong.

    Thanks guys. I'd like to do a graphic novel / story when things aren't so busy. :)

    Can you sort of talk me through your process when doing this stuff? (is it all freehand, do you block anything out before putting down lines w/e) Also what tools are you using (brand o' markers or w/e)

    Hey ninjai, it's all freehand. Even with the graphic-designy bits I avoid using a ruler; partly to keep an authentic shakiness to the line quality, partly just to practice drawing a straight line. I use Staedler mechanical pencils with red lead for the drafting, then Tombow dual brush markers for the colours (the red lead stops bleeding and muddiness, unlike the blue and grey leads), then the lines are inked over the top with a Kuretake brush pen.


    Giveaway: I'm doing something a lil different this time. I want to give this one away, it's about A4 in size so I'll ship it anywhere.... I guess on a first-comment basis so leave a comment if you think you'd like this pic. :) The colours are a bit different in reality cause I suck at photo editing in photoshop. :P

    I'm not sure if I like his leg situation there, but that might just be me. I feel like structurally the height and width of his legs make it seem like they'd collapse under him. But I'll be damned if the upper body isn't fucking amazing. Good job!

    The expression on Link's face does it for me. And the way his teeth kind of poke through on the side to indicate the angle you're looking at him.

  • Michael VoxMichael Vox Registered User regular
    Also, where do you get those red mechanical pencil fillers?

  • McJohnstableMcJohnstable Registered User regular
    Thanks mate. I get them from my local art store. :)

    You should totally make copies of your sketchbooks. I would buy the hell out of that thing.

    Thanks guys. Prospicience: I'm actually getting a few prints ready (only 5 at the mo) to sell online, and looking for the best site to do that through. :) Will post here when they're ready.

    I think bigcartel is free membership with a small inventory and small service charge, I know a few people who use them for prints iirc.

    Great stuff! Looking forward to seeing some prints!

  • McJohnstableMcJohnstable Registered User regular
    Thank you tapeslinger, I took your advice and the store is live now.

    http://mcjohnstable.bigcartel.com/

    There are five prints available at A4 size, $20 each plus shipping costs. I'd really appreciate spreading the word (or even better, purchasing something) and will personally have a sexy dream about anybody that does so tonight, oh my.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated as well, be it through here, PM, or my email: marc.a.johnst@gmail.com

    Thanks heaps!

  • squidbunnysquidbunny Registered User regular
    Hey McJonstable ... not to jack your thread but where did you get your prints made? I was just asking about this generally in the Qs thread but no one's biting.

    banner200x40.jpg
  • McJohnstableMcJohnstable Registered User regular
    Hi squidbunny, I got my prints done at a local print store here (called Big Picture), rather than online. I'd recommend you build a rapport with a local printing place if you have one available.

    Oh wow, yeah. Just gorgeous.

    It's hard to pick a favorite. What you are capable of producing with markers is just amazing. Having tinkered with them quite a bit over the years I can honestly say I've never come close to producing anything comparable. Keep up the awesome work friend, and like many others have already stated, if you were to dump these into a book I'd gladly throw a few bones your way.
