Doh, Ray, Egon



Heres my contribution to the Micks jam which hopefully (Over the next two to three years) will be completed. Am a huge fan of ghostbusters, as are a few other of the Micks here so I can wait to see how it turns out.

Deadly!Love it. Love you. I'd love to see you use a dirty brush in photoshop though, something less clean and sharp. Scruff it up a little.

Declan Shalvey said...

That would be interesting alright. Hell, this is a sketchblog; why not try it out?

Stephen Thompson said...

Even Mooney used a brushpen. You're the last one Will, come to the dark side.

Rich said...

Don't listen to them Will.

We already have our Decs with there rough dry brush look we need variety on this site. Stick to what you do best.

The pic looks great by the way.
Love the Ghostbusters.

Use the 'dry brush' in Painter under Calligraphy

Will Sliney said...

Hmmm, Maaayybe. Well see, Def wouldnt be a long term thing. if anything im trying to sleek up the line work even more. Gonna be wipeing Lappy the Laptop in about a week so Ill be putting on a proper version of Painter then and may give it a shot.
Cheers Rich, If you like this wait till you see what the others come up with for it.
Heres the thumbnail were working off by the way

I didn't know we were doing this so soon! I like your Ray a lot Will, very readily recognisable. And don't feel any peer pressure from those bums, like Rich says we need the variety here and brushpens aren't the be-all and end-all. I do agree with them that some nice line-weights would be a big benefit.
Other kids try and get there mates to take drugs, we push other media on each other.

Rich said...

Actually that would be an interesting challenge...how about each of you try doing a sketch in a completly different style than your norm. Using equipment and material you have never tried before. As Dec said this is a sketch blog so you can really experiment here.

thecomiccast said...

Yeah Will you should use a dry brush . . . with, eh . . . bristles and . . .

Beast drawing man.

Ray: I think we'd better split up.
Egon: Good idea.
Venkman: Yeah... we can do more damage that way.

Aidan said...

Really good. Well done lad

Will Sliney said...

Cheers lads. Is beast a Dublin saying? Never heard that one

Declan Shalvey said...

I think it's just a comic cast saying...

thecomiccast said...

You are correct Declan. And stop trying to push 'fetch' on us!

Ray's always been my favourite too, and he looks great here. You really did your research on the reference, huh? I'll have to purloin your sources for my Egon piece. I too think there's nothing wrong with razor-sharp lines, but I'm all for see process pieces with a little scruffiness off ya, Willington. (Gawd it ghrts sitting on the fence all the time!

Another polished piece Will. I'll give you a thumb up anyday.

Will Sliney said...

Cheers Nick. I used to always want to be Winston when I was younger but I think im starting to except that im more like Ray, except in skin colour of course.
