Pointy monkey man.
I was thinking yesterday about the Monkeyians from Thundercats. This isn’t what they look like, but still..

Old bears, bluified.
I spent a few days going through all my old stuff. Boxes of things I kept for no good reason as well as old sketches, drawings, paintings and ideas. The vast majority of it went in the bin and it feels great.
Anyway, I’m still completely in love with this "mysterious" blue ink so, when I found these old ink drawings, I gave them a quick splash of blue. The scanner really struggles to capture the subtlety of the shifting hues when the ink dries, but you get the idea.
i thought about putting a carton of smokes in its rolled up t-shirt sleeve. …but then it’s a plant.
NIGHT IN THE WOODS is a beautiful crowd-funded game by Alec Holowka and Scott Benson. The Kickstarter has 42 hours left right now but that’s bound to run out if time continues doing what it’s doing.
..so I did a wee bit of fan art. I miss 3D so I thought I’d model something while listening to the NITW episode of Alecs podcast and Mae seemed the obvious choice. I took the opportunity to do some Mental Ray bokeh tests. Came out ok.
I bought some new ink recently. It’s made by Waterman. That’s the same crowd that make the black ink I’ve been using for years. Black ink that splits unpredictably into slightly blue and brown when you really water it down, like THIS. Anyway, this new ink is blue. The box claims the colour is “Encre Bleu Mystère” or Mysterious Blue Ink. When you first put it down it looks ultramarine (a colour I don’t like) but then it sort of moves through cyan into a sort of turqouise when it dries. The scanner failed to capture the subtlety and the range of hue in the final image. It’s also not waterproof. Even when dry, a drop of water will sort of push its way through the ink to leave a white spot and the lines I drew with white pen turned very light green. Fun stuff, though. More to follow in a minute.
