Since I’m going home for both Easter and my sister’s birthday tomorrow, here’s an old postcard I drew last time I was going to visit her.
As well as reading the webcomic through the Smack Jeeves website - You can now follow Giant Rhinos In Space on Ink Blazers (formerly Manga Magazine). At the moment I’m updating with 6 new pages every Friday to catch up with when Chapter 2 is scheduled to go online.
Chapter 2 will return on Friday 2nd May 2014 with the first 5 pages
The webcomic will then update with 3 new pages at 12noon* every Friday!
*As far as I know Ink Blazers does not have a way to schedule update times so updates are likely to be out of sync but probably within a couple of hours and by no more than a day.
Yussss you can now read my pal Sammy’s webcomic in TWO places! It’s a new chapter, the perfect time to start reading!
A windflower fairy this time. I heard my Grandma has shingles, so I whipped up a get-well-soon card for her yesterday. I hope it will cheer her up until she’s feeling better.
…In hindsight, these are not the most botanically accurate windflowers I have ever drawn…
The front cover from a compilation of all my Bear Pit comics so far.
I quite often say I’m bad at covers, and people always say ‘No! Your covers are lovely!’ but what I really mean is ‘I spend four days staring at my desk unable to think of any appropriate ideas every time I have to do a cover’.
WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts. You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day. I fully expect to be doing like half easy. Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action Pose
Interior / Exterior
Black&White / Color
Machinery / Nature
Saturated Palette / Muted Palette
70 / 30 Rule (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)
Suit / Dress
Full Page / Vignette
Gruesome / Saccharine
Industrial / Pastoral
Little Kid / Old Person
Open Space / Enclosed Space
Love / Hate
Pretty / Ugly
Pattern / Random
Form / Function
Modern / Vintage
Cluttered / Clean
Monstrous / Cute
Badass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME!
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day! Just jump on the next one you can fit in. You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!
Let’s do this thing! Hopefully I can get them all in :) Tomorrow - ACTION POSE …Is it strange I’m really looking forward to a lot of the hard ones?
Maybe something for later in the year…
Only I can’t tell which ones are supposed to be easy or hard?
