The little Wermaid: page one

Woohoo, I finally did it! I found a style that is relatively quick to do and that looks okay enough to me. The big question was the inking. I have almost zero experience when it comes to inking, but that doesnt really reflect on what I expect my outcome to look like - which is perfect, of course. Let me tell you, this is a great way to get frustrated with your work very quickly.
I tried a few tools: fineliner, brush pens, pen and ink, brush ink, but in the end I luckily found something that works okay enough and still leaves a lot of room for improvement through experience (hopefully): the pentel Brush Pen.

Gaultier Couture Fall 2010

I really wanted to draw one of those femme fatale style pieces from Jean Paul Gaultiers Fall Couture show, but ultimately the trenchcoat bride with her violin was so fascinating, I couldnt resist.
Isn't she divine?

The little Wermaid: more Scribbles

Lately I spent most of my freetime working on my comic project "the little Wermaid" written by the amazing Regina haselhorst. I bought a big sketchbook which I am filling with layouts, character desing, research stuff and sketches for the project. I thought I'd show a few.
What's most fun for me here, is that this is really different from my usual work. Normally I try to be all serious and elegant and polished, but here I get to draw funny and weird and dirty.

A character from the story, Loreley, she tries to get a ship full of princes to crash into a rocky cliff by alluring them with her beautiful voice.

Sketches fo said rocky cliffs, the two on the right are drawn from photos.

Luckily the mermaids are there to protect the princes!

It's not an epic finale if it doesn't have a giant ugly monster in it!

and here's some ideas for different princes since I'll have to draw so many of them.

clothes, copied from a book on historic clothing, obviously.
