Might as well post this too, so you get to see it in colours. From The Phantom of course.
Colors on my latest The Phantom-comic. Scary purple haze jungle!
Just one more frame from my latest The Phantom-shorty!
I’m doing yet another The Phantom-comic and having the time of my life! Starting to get some speed in Manga Studio too.
Tested screen sharing with my mentor, the incomparable Peter Snejbjerg. Worked pretty well, so he’s gonna show me some new tricks in MS any day now. He made the transfer over to digital just before me and has already made over a hundred pages.
I’m getting ready to draw my new sci fi-comic soon, these last few short comics have been a great warm up for that. As I’m not writing the scripts for them it’s just fun fun fun!
Finished my latest The Phantom-shorty! Here’s half a page. Now onto illustrating a book with rapper Stor, designing the school emblem for the Alena-movie (yes it’s happening! Can’t believe it yet!) and writing the script for my sci fi comic.
The sci fi-book has been postponed a bit, I’ll be busy working on my movie (yes I call it “my movie”). But it’s still happening and I’m looking forward to drawing it. Having a bit of a struggle with the ending though.
A bit more ink from the latest The Phantom-comic. Now… Colors!
Inking my latest The Phantom-comic, script by Alan Sonne. A short story about Guran taking a swim on a dreadfully hot day… But wait, what’s that lurking above him?! Watch out, Guran!
They are finally together! I just got the new Marvel vs. Rockin’ Jelly Bean-figure the other day, Mystique. It’s absolutely gorgeous and together with Invisible Woman she is now guarding my work space.
At the giants´ table.
Everyone must follow veicomics! The bestest most awesome Norse mythology adventure comic by my most wonderful colleagues and friends Sara B. Elfgren and Karl Johnsson. Whoop woooop!
Last days I’ve been studying clothes and wrinkles. You can come a long way by faking it, about ten years of making comics for me. But now that I’ve begun to understand it’s actually really fun!
IF you wanna get into it my advice is to find a couple of tutorials and read them thoroughly. It’s important to not just look at the pretty pictures but to read and understand the ideas. Then just draw and draw and when not drawing look at people and their outfits. Then suddenly you’ll get it and it all makes sense.
These two links below I found helpful. Don’t be put off that the style isn’t something you like or close to your own. It’s about a technique. Learn it and apply it to your own style!
Best of both worlds, Rockin’ Jelly Bean draws Neon Genesis Evangelion! Bakaaaa Shinji!!!!
One of the biggest comics in Sweden is The Phantom (Fantomen). Even though it´s originally a US comic it’s a lot bigger over here. I just got do the art work for a short story for the magazine, featuring the daughter of The Phantom; Heloise.
I’ve never been a super fan of the comic to be honest but it was really fun to draw, so I think we might do some more. The script is by my old roomie and The Phantom-edtior Mikael Sol. Here’s half a page without dialogue, not to spoil to much:
My lovely friends and colleagues Loka Kanarp and C/M Edenborg dedicated the English edition of their wonderful ghost story comic book Hunger House to me! I’m speechless.
