Gotham by Gaslight

This is coming in a little delayed, but here is my second assignment for Visual Storytelling 1.



We were given a script from Gotham by Gaslight and had to put together one page. It's like Batman in Victorian times, I guess? Oh well. The script describes a woman being followed down an alley by a Jack-the-Ripper type of character and Batman comes to the rescue.

This is the first time I've inked in a long time. I'm still pretty clumsy, but I really want to get the hang of the nice Windsor Newton brush I bought.


CHARACTER DESIGNS/THUMBNAILS:







FINISHED PENCILS:


FINISHED INKS:

I'm still an amateur with a brush, but I'll be practicing a lot more. I wasn't happy with the inks as much as the pencils. Class critiques are always helpful--- I have a lot of perspective issues to sort out as well as lighting on the planes of the face.

Really stepping outside my comfort zone this quarter and learning lots.

  1. OOOH these are so awesome!! I love the character designs and the sort of woodcut feel going on!! And I really admire your confidence in your black placement, there's so many pure black areas but it's so easily readable and graphic. :DDDD
