@Heather-Boyd i like the texture it creates and the way the colors mix. Also because it gave me so much headache to learn haha

@BichonBistro agreed. This has Jake Parker written all over it. I didn’t find any page to be anything other than a representation of everything I have learned from him. I love all of his little tips and advice throughout the book. Someday I’m gonna have to meet him in person and get him to sign it.
I haven’t posted on the forums for a very long long time. I thought I’d share what I’ve been upto in my learning journey and my creative journey. I thought since it being December its a good time to reflect and share, as well as encourage anyone else that wants to share their learns.
I started attending the Fashion Institute of Technology this Fall semester, in their illustration program. Started exploring mediums and learning skills in school I wasn’t familiar with:
Conte crayons and charcoals
Graphite only value sketches
Differences between synthetic brushes, sable hair, and squirrel hair brushes.
Tried sculpting with various materials
During inktober I also jumped into using watercolor before actually learning much about the medium. I came out with some nice drawings, some i love, some I dont, but overall it was an expensive that taught me to explore the unfamiliar. It’s has made me want to make my comic in watercolor.
I finished writing a script for my web comic, thumb-nailed out several pages, and worked with an editor to make it cohesive and the way I want.
@alexthoffman I pre-ordered from amazon June 12 and kept getting delayed shipment emails from them. I wrote chronicle and asked them about the release status and this was their reply on nov 23:
"The release has been put on hold indefinitely until the artists in question come to an agreement. Did you pre-order it through us directly? If not, I recommend asking for a refund from wherever you pre-ordered the book from."
Mine was delivered today--surely chronicle knew this Nov 23. I am very disappointed in chronicle's failure to support @Jake-Parker. I am glad I did not cancel my order, as I do not see it currently on amazon as available to order.
I have only glanced through it, but accusations that the drawings are not in Jake's style are ludicrous.
Looking forward to starting off 2021 with this book as a guide. I hope it will be available to everyone soon!
31 days! We have 31 days left of this crazy year. Let’s all put our collective minds together and will the universe to make 2021 be a better year all around for everyone.
What’s everyone working on right now? Any Christmas cards going on?
Imagine you are walking through a studio silently looking over people’s shoulders at their work. This is NOT a place for critiques. You may applaud, encourage, ooh and ah only.
