Meep! *hides behind the nearest person* I don't even like Klondike Bars...

Also, cargo pockets for the win. If hers are anything like the ones on my brother's BDUs, she could fit half the stock of the sporting goods store of your choice in them.

Yeah...that not jumping right in thing doesn't work well for me. Cheesy



This will be the usual format (inked of course, one color shading). It's 980x500px. If/when I print this, I can fit 2 per large-size page. It's small enough that I can a MWF schedule. Will be making a huge buffer for when this goes live. Panel borders/narration boxes will be a vectorized "rough-look" design. Just improvising here.

I'll be posting sketch pages pretty regularly here. Don't know what font I want to use for this. Maybe I'll make another new one!

Ditto'd on the cargo pants. Screw purses! Pockets are better!

I'm also loving her expressions. Cheesy

(Belated replies FTW! I'm already mostly caught up with my messages, and I still feel so far behind!)

Thank you! Trying really hard to do more...cartoony expressions. Bigger eyes, more expressive lips, that kind of thing. I've always had a problem with it. I've been staring at Barb Jacob's work until my eyes glaze over, trying to understand how she does it.

I finished the sketch for the next strip of this, but I may redo it. Dunno if I like it yet.

Depends on how "cartoony" you want an expression to look. There's a big difference between Looney Tunes-esque "AWOO-GAH!" faces and simple comic bugging eyes; the latter bends the laws of human/animal physiology, the former shatters it into a million pieces.

How many strips have you got done now?

I have an all-time sketch buffer high of TWO ENTIRE STRIPS. They're so much fun to make though, even if I only have 2 done (and not even inked/colored. D:). They're so  much EASIER than twow. I love it.

Cartoony to me means exaggerated expressions mostly. No AWOO-GAH's, I promise.  I for some reason can't even DRAW real cartoon stuff. I just can't wrap my head around how to do it.

Woot! The Kez is on a roll! Cheesy


Heheh, I find exaggerated expressions (often) quite easy and VERY fun to do... 'Tis why I generally stray from realism, even when I'm capable of it. Cartoonish-ness feels more "free" to me, especially in realms of expression.

Mayhaps I should try giving you some suggestions/pointers some time about approaching caricatural expressions?

Advise away, mon amie.  ravarsmile I personally just think I'm too much of a left-brained artist. I understand the concept of cartooning and caricature...I just can't follow through.

Strange... Its reminding me of Fractured Harmonics for some reason. *tries to figure out why but brain fails which leads to gravity to part my butt from the chair.

Working on a few examples in Photoshop now. You want me to post them in this topic when I'm done, or in the tutorials section?

How 'bout the tuts section? Easier for other members to find and benefit from you as well.
