What's happening in the studio? Jump starting an unexpected new project. This is exciting. I'll post the outcome in a couple of weeks.

Jörgen Platzer's solo exhibition at Kalmar Art Museum today.
Jörgen is a great painter who also works with sculpture and installation. Recent years he has been occupied with the Trojan Horse as a theme. This show he also incorporated the concept of transport. Documenting his horses in different environments and combining paintings of, and real wrecked cars with his Trojan Horses.

Ordered some W&N A3 Bristol Board so I can ink whole pages. Right now I could only find A4 in the local art supplies store.
As you can notice I pride myself on keeping a neat workspace. Seriously I have to get a proper drawing board.

I had problems inking in Photoshop so now I try a new approach. I'm converting my pencils to non photo blue and printing them out. This segment is inked with micron markers. Paper is standard copying paper so it bleeds a bit. Lives up the lines I think. Compare with the same frame two posts down.
I found an excellent tutorial on how to convert pencils to blue here.

Taking up the work with Dogs after a long brake. Feels good to be back. I'm trying a new approach to layout starting with the first 12 pages. The plan is to find a little ruffer line and drawing style. The the reasons for this is among others to be able to create a page easy to read and of course efficiency. Tried to use Manga Studio for layouts but for now the learning curve for a new app is too steep. Photoshop works fine.
