http://morethanahunch.smackjeeves.com Has updated with page 4! (It is, as of yet, unshaded as I need sleep to perform my day job well but I am IMPATIENT AS HELL so I am updating with what I have).
And as a change from WIPs… Sketches!
This is a compilation of just a part of sketches I am working from when drawing Howard. As you can see in his natural state he sports a slightly goofy grin and messy hair (let you not be fooled! He takes pains to make his hair look right); he tries to make his hair more civil when going to the police office (or at least he pretends he tries). So yeah, the state we meet him in is not his usual appearance (then again we meet Michael in pajamas and cause a nervous breakdown so I think Howars gets the better part of the deal XD).
(I can’t clean this sketch at the moment; this scanner is picking stuff up in a strange way 0o)
I must admit Howard is not a type of character I am used to drawing: masculine, big and muscly yet his lines are quite soft and round-ish. It took me a while to figure out his design but I am really glad with what came out.
I updated yesterday with chapter cover lalala~! <3 (click image to go to page)
A little sketchdump. I was prompted to post more sketches and this is a small selection of stuff I had for some reasons scanned (aka: random, some are scanned because they feature >Hunch characters).
The second features my first attempt at Kenneth from the webcomic Children of the Night but it’s definitely not this direction…
The ugly face on the third sketch is my attempt at autoportrait. Though I don’t really remember what my profile looks like.
The picture before last is taken from a larger sheet but some if the images there were too spoilerific or misleading and I decided to post just this one because I like it. NOT THAT THIS ONE CAN’T BE MISLEADING. I give up.
The last picture is not edited to show you what usually my sketch pages look like (though I don’t always fill all the empty spaces). It features two ladies from More Than a Hunch, two from my different projects I am playing with in my head and Heine (who was the first on this page) eating a sand… GOD, I swear that was supposed to be a sandwich.
Comic has updated. Can you believe it? Me neither. But I’m sick of looking at this page so now other people can get sick of looking at this page….
In case anybody cares: this pretty much looks like Michael’s body type (from my webcomic, http://morethanahunch.smackjeeves.com/ ); you can’t probably tell very well from present pages with pajamas (unlike with Howard; no need to show reference for HIS body type XD). Actually the face is also getting pretty close although Michael’s is slightly more uhm, sharp? Angular? Generally there is this contrast with Michael being those sharp angles while Howard is generally round-ish lines. Fun fact: in first designs Howard was shorter but as I fleshed them out more Howard ended up pretty hight; higher than Michael (who is quite average).
Gah, now I want to draw more size and body shape difference antics (I have some sketches though probably legilible only to me XD)
Uhm, this is just in case somebody would want to… uhm, nevermind.
Sometimes when I feel really bad I like to draw people hurt, bleeding, suffering.
Well, I generally do but when I’m feeling down I tend do indulge those tendencies…
First daily doodle is a fanart of Michael, from Pedes webcomic “More than a Hunch” :D.
Besides the prompts I got and my own oc’s, I’ll be drawing a lot of fanart of my favorite webcomics and artists so… apologizes to the authors in advance OTZ.
Not sure if this will be exactly daily, but I’ll try.
Teheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~! <3 I am really amazed how Cat caught this expression without seeing my WIPs and sketches showing this side of him :D
I really love this sketch~<3 (And damn you for being better at wavy hair than me XD)
Test sketches for characters I was considering for cameo for the page of More Than a Hunch that is still being worked on. From top-left: Dez from webcomic Ten, Atherton from webcomic Loki, Montmarte from webcomic Sfeer Theory and Audrey from Two Keys. I lined them up in a similar shot so I could have a better comparison who I want in this scene. In the end I chose Audrey because of reasons but we’ll most probably see a glimpse of each of them at some point ;) I love cameos :D
Right to Aurdrey is a small sketch of Kyouko from Skip Beat. More precisely: Kyouko as Natsu.
Last row are sketches of Michael with… people *vague*
A high-res version of the panel with newshoe’s Audrey because it appears I wasn’t the only one to enjoy it and we all deserve a treat.
She’s a BAMF.
Panel from: More Than a Hunch
Audrey from:Two Keys
Today marks the first year of my webcomic More Than a Hunch (and it’s also my Birthday). I want to thank all the readers that have been keeping up with me and my slow update pace~! I’m trying to figure out a plan to have more frequent and scheduled updates this year.
Whether you are following the comic or just this tumblr I am really grateful (though in latter case I encourage to check out the comic ;) ). Whether you are a friend or a lurking reader… Thank you very much :)
I hope the next year will allow for more quality updates
(and better health).
I am not done yet! Last of today’s batch.
I usually edit the pages with sketches to squeeze them more together (though the cramped parts are usually true to paper; I just get rid of dead space) but the first one here seems to be showing lots about me…
It starts with Willfrid from Knights-Errant strangling younger Howard (this was sketched the day after I did this: http://p-the-wanderer.tumblr.com/post/35220793729 and I still think it was Will who took over me as revenge) then proceeds to BDSM Michael and to some HowardxMichael slash and then… to character concepts for another story (my NaNoWriMo one, though I failed to write much OTL)
Fun fact: I had the sheet on my drawing board under other papers and my BFF upon seeing just a part asked “is he raping Howard?”
The last one are sketches from the same sheet of paper as the image of Michael I posted earlier today (http://p-the-wanderer.tumblr.com/post/38413576488) and are basically body/gesture studies for Howard and Michael.
Howard throughout the ages. I was thinking of Howard from my comic More Than a Hunch and came to a conclusion that he must have been a bit of a plumpy boy until he shot up during puberty. So I did small sketches of how his body changed. Bonus Michael and two random boys who happened to be on this page and I liked them.
Fun fact: Howard’s hair is more of a golden brown/dark blond but he lightens the ends a bit. Which reminds me I need some color illustrations for >Hunch OTL
