Ace

Ace is Sly's partner in crime. They steal cars together and trade them for dope. Ace is hard AF, def not to be trifled with.

Fixing up an old drawing with anatomy issues

OLD
 NEW



Sometimes I get so excited about a drawing that I forget to do the construction...This was the case here, though I came back to it a few months later to fix it up.

Daly

Daly, the character with the dreads, is the best buddy character we meet in Episode 0. He is supposed to be Afro-Latino. Sly and Daly bond over being the only minorities in their tiny rural town in Colorado. They also share the fact that they are both from broken families.
Below them is a sketch of Sly as a teenager sporting a pompadour which was probably cool back then..
And below that is a picture of Anca's hair after she does an under shave in episode 1. I guess you could say I like giving each of my characters a unique hairstyle that speaks to their personality.

Yuji's Birthday Card

We call them squeak birds because they can't take off without making these precious little squeaking noises. They're pretty much my favorite birds, just common brown doves that you see all over the place here.

Designing a Look for the Webcomic

Drawing on influences like Shohei Harumoto, (pictured below) a manga artist who has a popular motorcycle drama in Japan called "Kirin", I'm searching for the right look for my web comic. It has to be both efficient - not take too much time to produce, but still evoke a very particular "noir" mood. However, I also want to stay away from just plain black and white, since that seems to be a turn off for American audiences, which is primarily who this GN is targeted at. That being said, I think limited color might be a cool compromise between the two.
Below are two images I created with the look in mind, using screens and colors, but I think I got carried away with the detail, which is so easy to do, and now I need to create a pared down "production" version.
