Weekend Sketches

Here are two pages from the ol' clipboard. I stole the whole 'clipboard as a sketchbook' thing from Shane Glines. It really makes it easier to work with. No spine getting in the way, no fear of leaving a crappy drawing in the nice bound black sketchbook, easy to scan, etc...

Oh my word, that Adam West style batman is awesome! the Two-face too. I tried to draw an Adam West style batman awhile ago and my attempts were just embarassing...but dude, you NAILED it. This is what I saw in my head while I was drawing CRAP.

Thanks man! I haven't attempted anything remotely super-hero related in years. It felt a little weird at first, but was still fun. Maybe I'll do some more this week.

is that tracing paper? cool idea.

Brian Romero said...

It's regular ol' 8.5 x 11 white copy paper. I buy it when it's on sale at Staples or Office Max.

theKirkness said...

so do you sketch in that blue pencil then go over it?

sorry if im sounding noobish.

Brian Romero said...

For drawing I use Prismacolor pencils that have blue on one side and red on the other. Usually I start out with blue and then use the red to make the final lines. Sometimes I also grab a Papermate black felt tip pen to ink sketches.

There's nothing noobish about your question. Every cartoonist uses different materials and techniques. Asking what other people use is a good way to learn new and possibly better ways to do something.
