New Characters

A look behind the curtain: today's sketches for a proposed book.


  1. Nicely done! The sepia tone is really nice. Are you painting with dyes?

  2. This was actually done on copy paper with black ink and aquamarine water color. I Photoshopped it, changing the hue first, and then adding a layer of scanned newsprint set to 80% "pin light" which replaced the blacks with that consistent rust-colored line.

    I think dyes would be the only way to get that rusty line to begin with, don't you?
