I haven’t thought about this show in years.
The Dwarf and the Spaceman, from my sketchbook.
Many of my friends have stopped playing minecraft, so I like to put on a little Yogscast to keep me company while I mine and build.
In progress pic!
I’ve fixed a few proportion and anatomy problems while I was inking, and picked my flat colors. Next up, shading and background. Still not sure what I’m going to do there, probably gonna light her from the left and lean her against some kind of wall.
I’ve been doing more sketchbook work, so I thought I’d scan a drawing to show you what my pencils look like before I ink them in PS.
I like to do my rough sketch with Col-Erase Prismacolors before picking out the lines and details I like with a mechanical pencil.
Then in PS, I’ll go through and correct proportions and symmetry, as well as make a background so the subject isn’t just floating in a white void.
Played a little game called ‘Fear Less!’ that I enjoyed so much I had to draw something for it.
It has the exactly sort of hand-drawn pixel art that I like, coupled with a theme of overcoming recurring nightmares.
Once I got used to the sword mechanic (its a little minigame, rather than being buttonpress-to-use) it took me right back to the old 8 bit days of repetition and reflexes. I even bound the two keys to a controller, which I felt enhanced the experience.
Even the music perfectly evoked the feeling of running breathless through an endless dreamscape. (Listen to it here)
Anyway, give it a shot. Fear Less! on Kongregate.
