Well, I finally wrapped up this Kid Universal short story but fear not, Kid and the gang will return. I learned a lot about making comics from doing these few pages. Soon I’ll repost all of them together along with a self critique. After all , you can’t grow as an artist if you can’t see what you need to work on.
Next week it’s watercolor portraits of Monsieur Coulon and his cat. Now that I typed that I realized there is a typo on this page and possibly on other pages.
A big thanks to everyone who’s been coming back month after month. I’ve been watching the stats and they keep going up so, again, thank you and please spread the word. The Little Dog Comics anniversary art giveaway is still going on. All you have to do to be entered to win is post about Little Dog Comics on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #ldcftw14.
Inktober is in full swing. Follow me on instagram to see what I’ve been posting.
I’ve been getting back into watercolor this past month. For practice I painted a series of portraits of characters from Kid Universal. Since Kid and Sherman have already been revealed I posted them firs. Next week I’ll post the conclusion to the first Kid Universal story and the following week I’ll post the rest of the portraits. (They’re my favorites.) You can win one of these or a Squirrel Boy print if you promote Little Dog Comics on Facebook, Twitter or Intstagram. Just make sure to include a link to littledogcomics.com and the hashtag #LDCFTW14. For more info go to the blog post titled Win Original Art. Facebook Twitter Instagram Don’t forget Inktober is coming!
Kid Universal, the pint-sized powerhouse vs. Sherman, the titanium titan. Two robots battling it out in the Rock’Em Sock’Em match of any century. Kid flies in with a haymaker -and wait- Sherman goes down. The match is over already? Guess the the notorious time disruptor isn’t as bad as everyone thought. The story concludes in the next installment of Kid Universal.
I’m sorry to leave everyone hanging but the final page won’t be ready to post until October 2nd but please check in next Friday for some watercolor portraits of Kid and Sherman.
Next month I’ll be participating in Inktober, a daily drawing challenge started by Jake Parker. You can follow my progress on Instagram and Twitter @hellopinello for both accounts. Also, I’ll post the daily drawings on the Little Dog Comics Facebook page. To see other people who are participating check the hashtag #inktober on all of your social media sites. Inktober begins October 1st and runs through the whole month.
I have one last announcement to make. October 27th is the first anniversary of Little Dog Comics. To celebrate I’m giving away a bunch of art and prints. Come back Wednesday September 24th for details on how you can win.
