Red and the Wolfe sale ending

Last days for the sale on Red and the Wolfe on ComiXology! It will end as March will end, as so many things must end, but who can afford a goodbye said in sweet friendship, or terrible anger, to what harmed us that we held so close?

To Diminish into the Distance

I was re-reading though my Charles Sovek book from my Tone Colour and Composition course with Geraldine Kovats and was thinking about something receding into the distance increasing in value or decreasing. So as the squares get smaller and look further away they decrease in saturation and the difference in value between the light and dark side diminishes, one getting lighter and one darker. I was just curious how it would look, it’s all relative though, something 10 miles away might appear as a brighter red than something 10 feet in front of you.

Baseball King

I call this picture “Baseball king -or- Dost thou even wear garb proclaiming the heraldry of the local gang of sporting men!?”

Red and the Wolfe Process

An example of how I worked on Red and the Wolfe. I did the entire story through beginning to end as a rough script in ballpoint pen, then I rewrote and edited the whole thing beginning to end laying out how I wanted the panels in pencil, then I edited it again beginning to end doing the final painting in photoshop. It took five years working on it every day as the starbucks employees can tell you, and it is still on sale this month on ComiXology!

Photoshop Brushes

When I was making a new brush in Photoshop I discovered that holding Alt and clicking on one of your presets irrevocably deletes it. So while I was figuring out what brush I deleted and remaking it I decided to prune my brushes down to what I'm currently using. The first two at the top are what I use about 97% of the time, with the opacity at 10-50% and flow always at 100%. I'll e-mail my .abr file to anyway who wants it, either this or my non-pruned file with spider web and bone pile brushes.

TS-808

I made an Ibanez TS-808 from GGG, my fourth pedal kit and my favorite along with a BOSS HM-2 clone, which sound great together. An original japan made TS-808 was at my local guitar centre for 500 something, this was 60$ and has a ton of modifications you can make to the circuit and comes with a switch to toggle between silicone diodes or red LEDs as clippers, as well as space on the board to add asymmetrical clipping diodes of you want it. These pedals are a lot of fun to build.

Compressor Sticker

Put a sticker on the compressor I made. I typically like to put other people’s artwork up and on the things I look at daily. I try to keep as much distance as I can from my work between the times when I’m working, it makes my brane feel better. Also this sticker looks like Vampire Hunter D’s hand, and he looks like he is going to latch on and eat those notes and poop them out compressed, just like in the anime.
