I think you'll find wally at the bar having a klingon rachtecheno/sp? never could spell that.

but gaea has a point that your illustrations also take me right back to my youth with the wheres wally books etc.

Great work..

Love the sad lookin 'flower' alien

Hey thank you. I really appreciate those kind words

LightSovereign
Thanks Marley. Yeah, I'm sure the bar there is very well known to Klingons. Maybe that's what I should call this image: 'Where's Worf?'

Russel-Nash
Thanks Torsten

Thank you. The plan is for the background to be fairly uniformly coloured so the aliens will stand out clearly against it. In the post after this one I'll be showing the beginning of the colouring

Work In Progress: Starting the colouring



I'm about to colour the background setting and I thought I'd show the colours. I'll be using a fairly uniform colour scheme which should hopefully let the aliens (and humans) show up easily

Looking good, Mark.
That zoom in is only 30%, how big is the canvas size, and doesn't your PC cringe at working so big???

Charming environment - could I have a flat in the top floor, please?
Are you still working on paper or have you brought it into the PC yet? It looks so, but the jaggedy lines gives it a nice handdrawn look, cool.

Yeah I am working on a pretty big file. Canvas size is 7635 x 5580 pixels! But it doesn't slow down my computer because I keep my layers on separate files and flatten as soon as is practical.

I know that's a big size to work in but there are few reasons why I've cranked things up to that scale:

1 - the large size suits the way I like to draw on my tablet
2 - the high resolution helps me with things like colouring (I can select an area that encroaches underneath the black outlines)
3 - and it means that when I've finished I'll be able to get the image printed on a large sheet of photographic paper to stick on my wall!

Hey thanks buddy. That is really nice of you

Gunilla
Thanks buddy. Yep, I'll reserve one of the top-floor flats for you - you'll find it has excellent sweeping views of the purple forests.

This is all done in the computer now. The original sketch was on paper but now I've traced the linework in Photoshop and the colouring is 100% Photoshop too. I actually had to trace it in Photoshop twice because the first time the lines appeared too smooth, when I wanted a rougher, more-wobbly look

That's perfectly, wonderfully crazy. Can't wait to see it populated.

I hereby order one for my wall, too. Oh, and you could also do a bed-cover. Kids would love it.
