I've been doing moderate amounts of brainstorming about these two characters, Jake and Austin, for the past month or so. I'm contemplating during a longer form comic about them.
I did a quick thumbnail for the autumn hiking scene, while the winter one was pretty much a random sketch.
- Col-erase 20066 scarlet red, 20053 Terra Cotta
- Mitsubishi Fine Prussian Blue (hard 2453)
- Canson XL mixed media paper (7"x 10")
- Various from Pentel watercolour and SHINHAN SWC Premium Professional Artist Grade
After sketching I painter-taped both sheets onto the smooth side of a masonite board. The paper I'm using is NOT thick or great for watercolours, but I more or less just consider these to be studies, and I'm not even using high end watercolours either.
My original intent was to re-outline the pictures, but I decided to keep it blobby instead! Final version are below and/or in the gallery~
