I'm fairly new here. I've been lurking for a couple of months now trying to get the lay of the land here and decided that maybe I should finally post some stuff. It seems like the sketchbook forum is the place to do that. I've only recently been experimenting with digital painting. I've made some progress thanks to things I've read in these forums as well as the downloads and classes available here. Kudos to Jason Manley and everyone at Massive Black for having this site and making learning more accessible.
Anyway, my digital skills aren't up to snuff just yet to the point that I'd want to post anything digital so I figured I'd share some of my other work here. I was trained in a more traditional manner (oils, watercolors, etc.) so I'm posting some watercolors I did for a comic book I was doing about the Iraq War...
Addendum: I figured I'd give a little explanation as to what these images are, so that they are not misread in any way. These pieces are part of a much larger series which I’ve been working on for the last year. Please note that this is not a traditional narrative. Rather the pages are designed with what Scott McCloud, in his book, Understanding Comics, refers to as “Aspect–to–Aspect” transitions and “Non-Sequitur” transitions in an attempt to convey the overall atmosphere of war. The images are juxtaposed according to subject matter or an overall visual “theme.” Interspersed throughout the series are abstract images which I thought conveyed the psychological intensity more directly.
