Namor colour drawing process by Laemeur Namor colour drawing process by Laemeur
Start-to-finish on a coloured drawing of the ol' Sub-Mariner that I did for my girl.

All the preliminary stuff is on layout bond. Initial sketch was done with pencil, brush-pen, and charcoal. Finished drawing is india ink (brush and pen) and watercolour on bristol.

"Only 18cm high"!? That's about the size I draw everything. I'm starting to realise that I draw quite small. Which is probably why after 28 years I now need glasses. Hmpf.

That's about the size that I'm naturally inclined towards, too. But working larger has big advantages in being able to control your details, so I've been trying to force myself to do it.
The drawback, though, is that my hands are not at all accustomed to the longer brush/pen strokes. So I'm still at the foot of that learning curve.

Snap. Funny, isn't it. You spend your younger years drawing in an A4 pad and you get used to that. Then you learn all about resizing and dpi etc.

*sigh*

I saw some of Jamie 'Gorillaz' Hewlett's work in an exhibition in London recently and he does the majority of his drawing post-it sized. Man is crazy. But then, I need a 0.05 pen to ink and find that too thick at times.
