Ok, So Quelyn my webmistress, and mistressmistress, yells at me for using spaces between lines of text I write.
SEE??? like that^^^,…but aside from looking good, and making it easier to read for old people, and those people less old who enjoy the optical illusion of less dense text, it happens automatically! when I get to the end of a line, if I hit “enter”
…like so , as is my custom…bingo auto blank line….so we’ll see what happens with that in the future. (who cares).
Meanwhile I decided after seeing a nice Mike Weiringo drawing of Aquaman, that no matter how crappy the character if you are a good enough artist you can make them look cool….I think lot of people back in the day liked a lot of crappy guys just for the artist probably without even realizing it, just look at green arrow, …why the hell would anyone give a shit about that robin hood rip-off?….answer Neal Adams.
anyway for my first go, I did his classic terrible suit and made an effort to keep his face very white bread.
I did this on the way TO work and showed Kevyn, he commented how I must not have felt like drawing feet.
While usually he would be right in this case, I just wanted to include water in the pic, he suggested I could have the water ABOVE him. So, on the way home…I made this:
SO i decided for Aquaman number two I’d go the other way and draw his ’90s bad-ass self with hook hand and long hair.
I put the water over him as Kevyn suggested, and made sure to draw his feet….then I realized I am insane, because I literally thought he meant water, like on a rock or something over aquaman….it want until I was done that it occured to me he probably meant the water line would be above him thus having him….. swimming….. underwater ….aquaman tends to do….so my final attempt:
got a half decent pose but faltered on the anatomy of it, *see previous posts*
played with the scale shine on his shirt in the smaller sketch.
so what have we learned?
Well, I think my theory is solid, but Neal Adams I ain’t
