A Man Of Adventure

Ink, watercolors, and markers on bristol board.

I finished coloring this piece a few days before we took off for La Paz.

I'm pretty happy with how it came out, and now felt like a good time to push it.

If you've been following the site, you'll recognize this as the first piece that I drew using the golden-ratio grid template which I downloaded off of MakingComics.com. It's a great resource for illustrators at all levels and I can't recommend it enough. I've got a few more items coming down the blog pipeline that developed while perusing MC, and a few more using this nifty little compositional tool. You haven't seen the last of the 6-fingered soldier of fortune either.

I used watercolors and markers to bring it to life in full color. I lost a little bit of saturation in the sky when I scanned it, but it's close. Imperfect scans are a part of life and always remind me of the mantra "Don't let the perfect get in the way of the good".  

I've started working out a bit of the story that leads up to this moment. Keep an eye on CTOB and maybe you'll see it sooner or later.
