They said to draw a sloth to encourage people to help us meet our Kickstarter goal. I’m not sure how that helps but I drew a sloth. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/periscopestudio/periscope-studio-maiden-voyage
Gift Sloth: Year One. He didn’t have a bow yet.
Haha, love this illustration by my studiomate, Aaron McConnell, that he drew of the six Periscope Studio members being featured in our Kickstarter.
We’re $670 away from reaching the halfway point of being funded, with 14 days to go. If 27 people pledge $25, we’ll reach our halfway point AND those backers will get *two* art books plus ALL the book PDFs
We’re trying to fund full color, professionally designed art books of six of our members, including me.
Thanks very much! The link has been fixed. :)
David Hahn’s art book is all about sexy ladies and gorillas punching Hitler. What else could you ask for? However, it only gets printed if our Kickstarter is successful!
For just $5, you can get a digital copy of this and the other five books in the series. Or you can splurge and get yourself a fancy hardbound collection of the books, or some original art!
His 32 page and full color art book includes life drawing, concept art, sketch cards, and fully finished illustration. The books won’t be printed in time for Christmas, but you can still gift them with Ben’s own Gift Sloth! Just print out this friendly mammal and let your loved one know what delights to expect.
Here are the key “process steps” for the cover to my Art Book, part of the Grand Periscope Studio Kickstarter Project! he art books as a whole will give lots of similar rare and behind-the-creative -scenes insights from a bunch of amazing artists! In this case, I started with a loose, very spontaneous sketch (upper left hand insert) where I was positioning the basic elements of the composition, working out some basic structure and letting a “narrative” for the image take some life in my imagination. Next, I tightened and refined those basic concepts in the pencils stage, adding details that fit in with the story of the picture. Once I was satisfied that the piece was solid, I picked up my brush and inked the drawing, adding further details and textures and further refining and sharpening details. (Note: an inker is not a “tracer”. He or she is a translator, moving a drawing from one medium: pencil art, into a completely different animal: inked art.) Once I had a clean, sharp image, I passed it along to Jeremy Colwell, my ace colorist, who turned my quaint little line art into this epic piece of heroic illustration. Supporting our Kickstarter will help bring many, many more pieces like this to print!
SIX great artists spotlighted in their individual Art Books! And that’s only the first wave!
Only 4 remain of Ron Randall’s special reward level on Kickstarter!
It comes with a personalized and sketched in copy of the Trekker Omnibus, an 11x17” archival quality print, and his personal sketch book, a full color, 32-page compilation of his favorite pieces.
Another sneak peek at the artwork featured in our series of art books, this time by Paul Guinan!
Do you wish you’d been born in a gentler time? Does your heart operate on steam power? Then Paul’s book may very well be for you. Check it out on our Kickstarter, which also features five other art books from professional comic artists!
