I guess I'll post stuff I'm working on here too.

There's some contest thingie called Mr./Miss/thing keenspace, and I'm entering Ryan in it. Here's the swimsut pic so far. Now I need a formal wear pic and and talent pic.

Do you do anything else at work besides draw the machinery?

Ads, processing pages for print for the magazines, occasional layout design. I recently redesigned the logo and redesigned the entire website. Someone else is coding it though. They ask for the machinery because they know I can draw it. They say they've never had anyone that can draw before so they like to have me draw stuff.

That looks like a Jetson's machine.

Probably less pretty and more oily in person.

Thanks. It's about 7 inches wide. I made my outlines much thinker than normal so I think that helps it look nicer.

That is a very nice looking machine-thingy type.. thing. Very clean and crisp. *salivates fiercely*

You just drew that by looking at it? On Bristol?

I made up the design based on other moulders. My boss said not to copy one exactly since the advertisers wouldn't be happy that we chose to highlight a specific one. I had to fudge the insides a bit since the pictures I had were like 1.5 inches wide. Honestly, I'm not even 100% sure what this thing does.

Yeah, I drew it on bristol, and then inked it with india and a hunt crow quill 107 dip pen. Then I beefed up the lines with a No. 2 Micron.

Nice. The fact that you had to make up some of the design yourself makes it even more impressive.

Ahh, dip pens. I so want to use them, but that would mean I'd have to stop drawing on sketchbook paper since india ink bleeds on it. That and Bristol board is kind of expensive. Hmm... I'm sure nobody would know the difference anyways if I used a more precise pen or not. ...or would they? :shifty:

Some people may notice. You can vary the line width in one stroke with a dip pen. To create the same effect with technical pens, you have to build the lines up with layers.

Yeah, Bristol is expensive :(

I use this weird felt tip pen from Japan that lets you vary the width in one stroke depending on how hard you press with it. The only problem with that is the tiny tip eventually gets frayed and you can no longer get smooth details with it.

That and I sometimes tell myself that using that pen is a cop out to save time, since it could look better if I go over it 3 times with a micron. Something about me and saving time just don't go well together for some reason.

I find that dip pens take longer in general since the ink takes a while to dry. But it's a col feeling to wary the line width just by pressing harder. Brushes are really the way to go with organic shapes. Brush pens are cool, but the tips don't last long. :(

I think I have the same brush pen you do. Is it a Faber Castell?

That avatar is priceless by the way.

I do have Faber Castell pens, a four pack actually (small, fine, medium, brush), but I've just recently started using a brush pen from Japan called Zebra. I got it from some professional comic artist I met when I was in San Francisco. It's like the Faber Castell brush pen, but smaller, and the tip is more firm. I like them both actually, but I tend to get carried away with how hard I press, and the Zebra doesn't make super fat lines when I press too hard.

I do like using small brushes, but I havent had to in a long time. I think if I had to do that, I really would go insane. You must have alot of patience to use one of those, heh.

And thanks, I like avatars that tell a little story. ;)
