Ask an Artist on the 11th! - A3on11 - Pacing and Dynamic layout...



Talk about good timing...it's posted on the 11th!

As you probably know I'm working with the fine folks over at Holmes inc. and they are just about to launch issue #2.

They had asked me to write a brief tutorial on 'Dynamism and pacing' in the laying out a comic page. I'm a bit afraid I've made it TOO brief, but you can judge for yourself over here. If you need/want more details, just LMk and I'll be happy to expand more on this in the future.


As always, if you have a question or want me to expand on any of the above…just ask! I’ll be back next month on the 11th to answer another question. They can range from very technical comic art ones, to very general questions- there is no such thing as a bad question. What I answer will depend on what gets asked. Feel free to email me at gibsonquarter27@yahoo.com , ask it in the comments section below, or shoot me a message on Facebook.

Cheers!

Holmes Inc. # 2 Cover and promo art...

Excellent.

I can finally show and talk about Leonard Kirk's excellent cover to Holmes Inc. #2!

Here it is in all it's glory.


Yes, it was drawn by THAT Leonard Kirk (Supergirl, X-Factor, JSA, and many other well drawn comics) It was coloured by my long time colorist KT Smith (Northern Guard, Revolution on the Planet of the Apes, and lot 'o' other stuff...like this for example! )


The book will be released on July 22nd. Details, and TONS of other art, tutorials and all things Holmes can be found here.

Feeling inspired by Leonard's cover, I whipped up a quick promo piece with the 2 main characters from my pages, Edgar and Elizabeth. Enjoy!
