Wow, Gibby, that is a great idea! The parchment reminds me a lot of the Journal on the Hasbro site! Was that the look you were going for? Too cool. 8)

Saving your images...

Nice work, Gib! Call them Hex's Journal.

It was pretty simple, really. I just printed them onto some tan-ish paper, cut them out, crumpled them up (a lot! Doesn't matter if there are a few little rips, it adds character, just don't rip the whole thing in half), then stuck them in a book and set a big box of acrilic paint on top of the book and left them in for about 20 hours. I'm sure it would have worked with less time, though.

you can get the same effect with either Photoshop, Fireworks or Corel Draw in much more controlled envioronment. Plus corner rolls, edge tears and aging effects can be added.

HEH what are you inking your drawing with it appears the large areas are done with magic marker. If it would be to your advanage to change to india ink and brush. When marker is printed the black area are not going to be solids. The pen strock are going to show through.

Thanks for the compliments, Atmos!

Just pure India ink - no markers for me :x .
Where are you seeing a problem? I've sent copies to Newbie with solid black intact.

Gibby's look fine, too!

Controlled environment? Who always wants control in art-making? I think Gibby did a swell job. And if one was to hold the parchment in their hand or in a frame, the interaction of 'realness' versus affect is beyond compare.

It's all about the texture of the paper. It actually feels like a cross between an animal skin and cloth. Sure, you can get the idea of the look in photoshop, but you're not going to get the texture of the paper.

Hex has always been the man with the artistic hand. I've always thought his drawings and artwork were awesome. Both he and I would always be drawing in one form or another and I could never keep up. Maybe thats why I went more computer then hand drawn. Trust me, I've known Hex the better part of my life and he has always been awesome. I look forward to seeing his work on the cover of or inside the codex.

Thanks Stoner, but you need to show off your artistic drawing skills too! I have a feeling you'd do a rawkin' rendition of Krug or the Dumetefs.

I'm scraping the barrel now.
I haven't had a chance to draw anything new, but here are some sketches and studies for some of the figures.



Romans and Greeks.
IMax was the one who got me on the Roman subject matter for the Codex. He wanted them marching into battle to accompany Bad_Calvin's article . I tried and tried on that request, but I just wanted to go with them in battle. Here was my attempt at his request, but I just didn't like where it was going.

Concan - the brooding Kyrie Warrior. I like Concan's bio a lot. Why was he stubborn in choosing sides? And what exactly did Raelin do to help him decide?

Same as above.

I love slopping on the india ink. Here's a good example on Concan's armor.

Used to draw a lot with ballpoint pen. I tried it again for Concan. I was also toying with Saylind looking like a dark-haired, Greekish sort of lady.

I wish I had half that talent! HEH, those are awesome.

LilNewbie June 28th, 2006 01:30 PM

Love the sketches, HEH! And like NS, I wish I had a thimble full of that talent. The swooping in Concan is awesome!
