Renegade sketch page 6  
Well I guess the new first. Leonard Nemoy, Spock from original Star trek, died yesterday at age 83. He used to be a smoker and though he quite 30 years ago he quit too late. The damage was done. That's sad. He was a good actor and very important to the fandom. He did narrations for some documentaries too. As well as some voice acting. What a shame.

Oh gosh today is the last day of the month. I don't know why I thought I had one more day. I got lots of progress yesterday. I started the flat colors of the first background of page 5. I finished inking demon 10. Perhaps today he will be colored. I will try. But I finished drawing page 6 last night and have started page 7. And just for those on LJ here is page 6.

I'm very happy with this page. A lot of what's going on you can't tell until I color it. For one he's not laughing in that first panel. George is not one of those maniacal laugh villains. He's sucking in all the soul energy from the bodies. So he's feasting both on that and physically too. Actually eating which I haven't show. In the second frame he hears something. There are three little lines indicating that. Again they'll be obvious when colored. One thing I'm doing with this comic that I don't often see and I think keeps it professional is I don't use cheesey sounds. No giant letters going BOOOOOOM. or things like that. I try to show sound through motion or motion lines so that you hear it in your head. What he heard was the click of a gun. Last frame you see some moron coming up to him with a wimpy pistol disturbing him while he's feeding. Bad, BAD idea. George is in hybrid from and that guy could empty all his rounds into his back and nothing would happen. Then he could go over and just punch him out. But that's not what will happen. So far the last frame is my fave. I love George's duster here. This might sound silly but he looks soft to me. Leeanix is the only one that could say that to him and she'd still get mildly scolded for it.

I actually have a funny scenario in my mind where he comes home and she gives him a hug. Well since his clothes are loose fitting I do imagine they'd feel soft and she'd say,
"George, you're so soft." In a friendly voice. He'd be surprised and get all defensive.
"SOFT?! I AIN'T soft!" He'd yell.
I just love this exchange. It's funny to me.

Oh the lyrics for this page are.
The Law of the jungle he obeys
Waiting for the danger
To even out the scores.

I got my coin in the mail yesterday. It's lovely. I could tell out of the box the quality was better than my American Eagle. I compared them and sure enough the eagle is darker as it's poorer quality. So no more of those.

Current Mood: Groggy

I read that Leonard Nimoy died on the news last night. That made me sad.

I guess the soul sucking will be more obvious when you color it because that facial expression seems out of character for George. But you explained that so I'm not weirded out by his expression.

That little scenario with Leeanix thinking George is soft is one I would like to see drawn. He's still not as soft as her fluffy little Phage budgie.

Yeah Badcowboy told me and I looked it up. Was not expecting that. I didn't now he smoked.

Yeah he's not the type to laugh like a crazy guy. Would be out of character since he's very quiet and soft spoken. But he totally enjoys his meals when he's doing that. It's literally a feast for his senses. I hope I can color it the way I imagine. I'm not totally sure how I will do it yet. But if I can pull it off how I imagine it should look really really cool with all the energy going into his mouth.

It's cute huh? Perhaps I will draw it if I have time. Yeah budgie feathers and soft coats are very different feelings.

I didn't know he smoked either, but I guess more people did than didn't back in the late 60's and early 70's.

My guess is that Ophidius would be the laughing crazy guy, although I could picture Haakon doing it too. Didn't you make him an extrovert?
Des: Laughingthagirion on February 28th, 2015 04:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah people didn't know back then smoking was so dangerous.

Yes Ophidius is definitely one to laugh like crazy. Haakon would also. Yes he's an extrovert. That's all I know about him so far. So many new character I don't fully know them yet. Thagirion laughs like crazy too despite being introverted. But he doesn't as Davon who's an extrovert so that's interesting. Davon is a reserved and proper extrovert.

Yeah it was a decent age. I'm sure there are some very sad fans all over the world right now.

Yeah this is a nice violent page. Yeah technically since George isn't human, it's not cannibalism, but it seems that way to us. So it works. Hehe, yeah, bad choice of weapon and our Renegade is becoming very angry about it.
I have no idea what he did to those people but they are screwed up. Some are in pieces.

If anyone other than Leeanix said that to him well that would be the end.

Yes, it's amazing that you can see a 9% difference.

I have no sympathy for Robin Williams and I got sick about hearing about him. I was annoyed how avian got all stupid about someone she doesn't even know. Williams was a suicide so no respect for that. Dying of old age or a disease or a murder is sad but suicide is just stupid. Plus he had other dumb issues like drinking. I like his movies but this is one reason I don't follow actors. I don't care about their personal lives as those are boring or stupid. I like the characters not the actors.

An anit-vehicle round probably would do more damage. I have to think about that. He'd definitely try to avoid than deflect. As Gallemotch he's even tougher.

That is sad news about Leonard Lemoy. He was younger thsan my dad! (But my dad has never smoked.)

Cool comic page. This is more like the George I know! I'm glad you explained some of the details which I might not have otherwise picked up because it's only in sketch stage. I do like your little scenario about Leeanix telling Geroge he is soft :)

And happy 1st of March! (I'd say happy spring, but apparently you guys don't celebrate that ubntil the equinox.)
Des: Spring - Egg wreaththagirion on March 1st, 2015 01:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah it's too bad he was having health problems.

Yes this is how he really is when not around Leeanix. Yeah once colored things will make more sense.

Yes hehe I think it's funny. He's so soft for her.

YAY it's the 1st. Yes it IS spring. I go by the start of the month no the equinox. Plus some trees are getting new leaves already. I hope winter will go away for good.

I'm glad you are celebrating spring and yay, it is indeed spring if the trees are getting new leaves!

The composition on this page is really great...can't wait to see it finished.

Des: Drawingthagirion on March 2nd, 2015 01:28 am (UTC)
Thank you. Thought I'm not sure what that means but people tell me that a lot about my art and photos. I just draw what I think would look good. Hehe.
Calzephyrcalzephyr77 on March 7th, 2015 05:05 pm (UTC)
Ah, you have a natural talent for it then :-)
badcowboybadcowboy on March 1st, 2015 08:01 pm (UTC)
Ooooooh I think this has got to be my most fave of your pages so far. I really love that first panel! Wow and it has this kind of impact as a sketch I am sure it'll be knock your socks off when it's colored!
Desthagirion on March 2nd, 2015 01:29 am (UTC)
Thanks. I hope page 5 before this one will be good too. That first one will have so much more detail still. My fave is the last one. Ha, what do you think about the "you're so soft" comment?
badcowboybadcowboy on March 9th, 2015 11:08 pm (UTC)
I can see that. Leeanix is just so sweet with those sort of things and meaning it more literal as Georges clothes ARE soft, but him taking it the other way is totally understandable and believable. I can see that and I can imagine the expression on his face. Oh I wish I could draw people again I would try and sketch that out as gift art, but I suck and Leeanix and George would probably end up as animals instead....cats or something that I can draw lol
Des: George Grinsthagirion on March 9th, 2015 11:21 pm (UTC)
Hehe, every time I look at that final drawing I really can't help but think about how soft he looks. Yes his clothes really are soft. Unlike Owen, who's coat has a rough texture. But yes he'd take it the wrong way thinking it means weak or afraid others would think he's weak, though there's no one else in the house. I imagine him with his mouth wide open on the AH sound of either sOOFT or Ain't. Aw that's sweet. I'd love it if my watchers made gift art of scenes from my stories. But yes I used to do that as a kid. I'd draw people as birds because I couldn't back then.
badcowboybadcowboy on March 10th, 2015 12:19 am (UTC)
Hmmm well maybe I'll have to scribble something at work if I get management and have that down time in between going nuts XD I just have to figure out what kind of animals I'd have to make Leeanix and George. If they could be anything mammal what would you think they'd be?
Des: Hummmthagirion on March 10th, 2015 02:53 am (UTC)
I don't know. I already think of them as centipedes so I can't really imagine them as another animal. HA, I guess I don't mind if you drew them as stick figures.
