Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Happy new year everyone! Thank you so much for all your comments and encouragement last year. Time to start a new thread for 2017! My focus is still going to be comics and illustrations.

Here are my two sketchbooks to start out 2017: a Stillman & Birn Zeta multimedia sketchbook and a Strathmore 400 watercolor journal. I am still working on the Stillman & Birn and haven't cracked open the Strathmore yet. I am slowly getting the hang of the Stillman & Birn paper for wet media so I am liking it more and more. Can't wait to try the Strathmore.

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

And two sketches for the new year. I went back to the 30 days challenge of drawing the same character (Aragorn) to different prompts.



Day 4: with an utterly uncharacteristic expression (lol)


Day 5: after an argument with a loved one

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

More of that thirty days challenge thing. This time using watercolor in the Stillman & Birn multimedia journal; it turns out surprisingly good for watercolor! I am really liking this journal now.

Day 8: draw the character in an alternative universe.

(I actually have this fanfic involving dragon summoner Aragorn. That was fun lol.)

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Thanks EP for the nice comments!

PS: do you live in BC? I am home in BC with my folks for the holiday season; all that snow this year is giving me some really nice reference photos for art!


And today's sketch, day 6's prompt: draw the character all bloody.

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Little bit jealous of your range of expressions while maintaining the same character, I definitely need some more practice in that regard.

Obviously loving the watercolor, and the moodiness achieved via color and strokes...

Comic books are hard.

Great work!

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Thanks EP, and it's great to meet another wetcanvas member from BC.

Thanks Joan for the kind word.

MBosen, yeah, my passion for drawing/painting lies mostly with the storytelling aspect of it, but that's definitely super hard, because you pretty much have to conjure an image out of your brain. I am getting better at piecing together different photos for reference now... Thanks for the comment!

Finally grabbed some time to finish a piece, here is day 10's challenge: draw the character being serious or in the midst of a battle. So here is the battle for the Stone of Orthanc, yep~

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Thanks Blue for the comment!

One more for this weekend.

Day 13's prompt: character in the past or future. So here is Aragorn as a little kid with his foster father. (Toddlers are so hard... )

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

I like your sketches to go with the prompts. They look like you should be illustrating a book.

Re: Otherworlder's 2017 art journal

Thanks Joan. I definitely want to try a bigger project, like a short comic or illustrate an entire story, though I think I need more practice with sceneries.

And another entry in my journal for this weekend. I think I am getting the one per week rhythm. Taking a break from those prompts and Aragorn, but still in middle-earth
