    Just a look at the process I used to complete another study of my character, Cobra.  This is my favorite concept of him that I’ve done so far.  The new techniques I learned with charcoal through practicing realism has allowed me to create better textures, especially with the skin.  I also have started using white charcoal pencils to help blend the highlights, particularly with the pants.  It just makes it seem smoother and cleaner, in my opinion.  Definitely getting there, now onto the next one :)

    Decided to do a concept page, front, side and back of my original character, Cobra.  This was a fun one because I’m not used to drawing that small and it was a challenge to get a lot of the details from the folds of the fabric.  I like it though, considering it’s my first time doing a concept like this and, like I said, it was fun :)Enjoy!Tools: 4H graphite pencil, Micron inking pen, charcoal, black marker, blending stump

This is the biggest piece I’ve done so far.  3 figures, dynamic pose and my first attempt at any sort of background XD  I did the background without any sort of reference.  The only reference I actually used was a pictures of free runners for my character in the middle.  Other than that, I was pretty much guessing and using techniques I actually kind of remembered from high school about vanishing points XD  It’s not that good, but I needed to take this step and actually get something like this down so that I can now move forward and improve upon it.  It’s all just practice.  My plan is to make my entire comic with this messy/gritty feel because the world in which the story takes place is meant to be very grim.  Anyways, I find it pretty cool to look at, so hopefully you do too hahaha.Enjoy!Tools: 19x 24 Bristol board, 5H and 2B graphite pencils, 2B medium charcoal pencil, 6B extra soft charcoal pencil, Micron fine liner inking pens (01,05 and 08), blending stump

I promised myself I’d start doing more color, so when a great friend of mine suggested I do the Super Family as Lanterns, I took my chance hahaha. This is my first time ever using pastel pencils. They’re really fun to use and as my eye gets more used to identifying colored tones, I’ll be able to experiment with them even more! The black of his costume was done with charcoal as well as his hair. I don’t know how many different blues I used… however many came in the pack XD I think about 4 or 5? I just kept piling them on and experimenting. The skin was I think 3 or 4 different colors all blended and the lips were 2. The background I just painted quickly with watercolor so it didn’t feel so empty. Anyways, that was my first pastel experience :) Superboy and Supergirl are on the way!Enjoy!

    How I draw :)

    Moon Knight: Step by Step

    Tools: HB graphite pencil, 6b ex. soft charcoal pencil, micron 08 inking pen, white gel pen and white gouache.

    1. Lightly sketch a mannequin of the figure with your graphite pencil.  This is an extremely important step.  It allows you to perfect the pose before getting into detail, making it not so painful to erase and start again if need be.  One of the worst feelings is having put so much work into the details only to realize after so much work that the pose doesn’t feel the way you intended.
    2. This is the design stage. With your graphite pencil, still keeping the lines somewhat soft, begin to overlay any clothing, facial detail, etc. and erase any unnecessary guidelines.  I like to compare it to taking a doll and playing dress up, but with an endless wardrobe of imagination.
    3. This is where you finalize your lines.  In this example, I used a black micron inking pen, but you can use any medium you’d like.  The key is making the lines permanent, so that when shading, you don’t have to constantly re-draw your lines when you want to erase an area of tone.
    4. This is the home stretch.  When shading, you want to think about any light sources if you have them, but what I always try to keep in mind contrast.  You want to be patient with this, don’t rush.  It’s preferable to go back in to certain areas and get really dark tones, even if the character is white.  The more contrast you have from dark to light, the more the piece will jump off the page.  It is also wise to keep a white gel pen or white gouache nearby for any touch ups or highlights you want to add at the end.

    I hope you guys liked this post.  I mainly did it for myself, but I have also been getting questions from people asking about my process.  I want everyone to keep in mind that I’m completely self taught and have only been drawing for a little over 3 months.  I’m not saying that this is THE way to draw, not even saying it’s the right way.  But people have been asking how I do it, so this is how.  Enjoy!

This is my original character, Cobra, without his mask. I’ve never drawn a character from this angle, so I had some trouble there. Even got told it was garbage hahaha. Practice is practice, though. Let me know what you guys think! Anyways, onto the character. My goal here was to show that even though he grew up in a rough part of the world, fighting against the world both physically and mentally, he is still just a young man with hope for the world that has wronged him so much. I wanted to show this by giving him a softness in his gaze. His eyes are a very telling part of his character. I think, in that department, I succeeded Enjoy!
