Sure thing! I generally start off by sketching with red lead (I use a mechanical pencil and 2mm Staedtler Mars Lumochrome leads, if anyone’s curious) and just lay down an unholy mess of scribbly lines. Then I go back over it with the blue lead and try to refine the sketch a little, pick out the lines I want to keep. After that I’ll usually whack it on the lightbox (a new acquisition — until very recently I was clipping my drawings to a clear plastic clipboard and holding them up to my desk lamp) and trace the final line art with ink and brush or a felt tip pen. I guess I mainly use colored leads because I like their slightly waxy consistency — I’ve never really made use of their non-photo properties. I just find that graphite pencils are a little too slick and frictionless for me. And the contrast between the red and blue helps me to discern my underdrawing from my under-underdrawing. Anyhow, here’s a slightly messier sketch (still far from the messiest) which might help to illustrate what I was describing.

… And I’m sure that’s far more than any of you wanted to know. Sorry. Procrastinating again.

I got made fun of for being the only one in the Animation department to use both red AND blue, in this fashion. I’m happy to see I’m not alone… :’3


I was invited back for another episode of “Guys with Pencils"to talk about…


Guys With Pencils Ep 152 - Holy Horse Balls! Someone Stole My Art!

Katie Shanahan and J. Bone have joined us this week to talk about THEFT! specifically, Art Theft. Why Katie and J. you ask? Well because they are victims of having their own pieces of artwork stolen, traced and displayed without having any source credit to the original works or creators! This is a really interesting topic and we were very lucky to have such wonderful artists who can give their accounts as to what steps they took once they realized their work had been stolen.
