sketchbook sundays

This week was the last week of our semester, so not much sketching happened. But, we got started on a portrait of Sandra, by special request. Here’s a close up of a section of the 6×8 in progress.

A new frame and mat arrived for our 9×12 drawing of Meteor Mags playing piano. So, we put some finishing touches on it by adding a signature and, with a white gel pen, a multitude of stars in her sky.

The frame is 11×14 brown wood with a figured black interior edge.

diving frog 2 - Copy

This little frog revisits a 4×6 drawing we did with our very first set of fine point pens in March, 2013. This one is bigger at 6×8, though the image above is cropped to 5×7. It uses more solid black in the background, but the frog is pretty much the same. The original 4×6, below, sold on eBay in a basic black frame. The new one is better, so we don’t miss it anymore.

We didn’t post it last week so here is a new illustration for one of the Meteor Mags stories. It was fun to produce. It began with posing for the shot, so yeah it’s sort of a self portrait. But with more awesome hair.

This was the first time we used a white gel pen to put some stars in the sky. For a guide, we studied the stars on the cover of Iron Man #215, shown below. That’s a book we bought at the drug store in the mid 1980s, and we’ll feature it here at MWSNM sometime.

This was the first issue of Rima we ever read. We scored it in a 50 cent or 25 cent bin in our first year as comic bloggers. It made us want to read more about this white-haired woman who befriended all animals and feared nothing.
