Haha - I love it when you draw those red alien ladies.

How long does it take you to make one of these?

Everybody selling sketch cards has me curious to try my hand at it, but I had no luck last time I tried.

I'm thinking next time I'll do it with more "popular" characters and ones with ample lung hammers at that. Some day I will discover the secret to selling these marks I make on paper.

Or just die trying. Optimism!

biggrin.gif Thanks!! It usually takes me an average of about an hour to an hour and a half, unless there's exhaustive detail.
The best thing that I can tell you is to keep practicing. I can't say how many cards I've produced between December 2009 and now, or how much experimentation that I've done with different inking tools and pencils. All of the practice has paid off,and I do feel comfortable enough with how I work now to apply that to full size pages and pinups. Be sure to hang around the sketch card communities like nonsportscardforum, sketchcards.com and tradingcardspace.com. Sometimes, it's what you make it. Good luck!

Here are a few new pinups that I did this week, all 9 X 12, in an effort to get used to inking with larger brushes, on a larger surface! These are all inked with a W&N Series 7 #2 brush. It was fun! There are more to come. All of you who know me know that most of my work is on 2.5 X 3.5 sketch cards!

What kind of Acrylics are you using Anthony?

I'm trying to experiment with mixed media and it's not working so well for me. It's not awful, but the results aren't what I'm expecting. Right now I'm using colored pencils and copic markers.

Thanks.

I use Golden acrylics almost exclusively, and Golden tube acrylics for most of my brush on effects or blends and corrections and highlights. I really don't use much paint at all in my work, aside from some of the oil and watercolor experiments that I did last year. I prefer the combination of Copic, colored pencils and acrylics because I can achieve a wide range of effects without worrying about my cards warping after having absorbed too much water. The secret just comes down to practice. I like what I've seen you do.

Thank you sir.

What's your preference for colored pencils and paper?

I've been experimenting with this as well to try to get a better end result. I've tried a more toothy paper and smoother papers. Currently I'm using a Prismacolor (Sanford) pencil set (92885).

I'm trying to use more color in my work, my preference is black & white; because I'm tired to seeing disappointed looks when people see black & white illustrations. dry.gif

I'm using Prismacolor colored pencils and I got in on good deal on some nice thick stock for my personalized sketch cards. The paper is called Carolina, I THINK it was about 18 pt. You can also order it from Versicolor. I prefer a stock that's not going to bleed through as I use a wet on wet technique when I blend with copics. It bleeds through sometimes anyway, but not as bad as some of the prepackaged cards you get at the art store.

Thank you sir.

I picked up some heavier toothy stock cards and they're pretty nice. I'm going to knock the remainder of that pack out then move on to the Blue Line supplies I picked up.

Have you ever tried to use grays to establish tonal values and then go over them with another color with your copics? I've been monkeying with this, but have only cool/warm values, which when I try this discolor, more accurately they shift slight yellowish or slight greenish; which I assume is the warm/cool color value present in the grays.

Thanks Anthony, sorry if this is getting wordy I'm a calculating bastard that prefers to hammer things out before diving in. tongue.gif

Believe me, I have no problem with that. It's best to get as much information as you can before plunking down your money on something. As far as laying down grays, it depends on what I'm rendering. I find that I tend to muddy colors up that way and I prefer to go the route of shading with a deeper complementary color and use deep grays only if I have to. One of my favorite things about copics is how you can touch them tip to tip and mix colors right on the marker. (Another reason why I haven't bothered with Prismacolor markers).
Have fun with your new toys!

Thanks again.

Have you ever used colored pencil first, then marker?

Tsukasa Jun uses a technique of colored pencils first, then markers, and then colored pencils yet again. I have a book that details his process, but it's in Japanese and I'd love to find a translator for it. I'm not sure if he's using standard colored pencils or watercolor pencils, then a blender. It's another technique I've attempted to replicate with little success.

Be cautious if you Google Image Search his work. He has a wonderful knack for illustrating voluptuous women in various states of undress. wink.gif
