So it's HOWLING wind outside this morning, and it reminded me of some of my time in the Sea Scouts. We did a lot of rowing, and I loved it. Both with a bit of swell, as you had to try and navigate the waves and find a stroke that didn't have you catching crabs or air, and in perfect calm, when the movements of the oars in the spurs were perfectly in unison to the beat of 'We Will Rock You' I always found sailing to be 'sit there and hold a rope/stick' Gimme an oar any day. So this happened as a bit of a warmup.

Adam Law drew my Goblins for me and did a wonderful job

This morning's warmup. No idea who the characters are, but ideas were bouncing back and forth in my head like a film trailer while this was being drawn
'You hear what they're calling em? DOGfights. I don't see a goddam dog up there in that sky. Too busy chasing their tails. We're birds. We're hunters. We win'
If THAT's the case, then that gun is way out of timeframe, but screw it, it's just a doodle.

Concept drawing for the Goblin's sitting room. Trying to stick to the rules of anything they've had for centuries or found in the dump, adding to their insular lifestyle.
Ended up doing the pencils for this at two in the morning last night, and then woke at 7.30 eager to do more. Obvious different techniques used this time- no inking, lots more textures, one brightness/contrast adjustment layer for lighting.

Today, barring a quick stop to pitch a marquee (as you do) was time for me to get a bit more work done on my pet project, Goblins. I've a tendency to rush headlong into making a comic without hammering out the characters visually as much as I'd like, so I'm taking this one at a time.
Ug and Fez are today's subjects, following on from the last time. Two more stars of the show to go, maybe three. This is all building towards something. I have a plan.
