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?
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
