I thought I’d post a drawing I did last week for my wife. This is her WOW character Kimbela. You can see my inks on top and then Joe Pekar’s incredible colors underneath.
Joe and I have collaborated on a bunch of projects recently that should start going live here pretty soon. I like coloring my own stuff but it’s a real thrill to see how someone else interprets what I’ve done. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some really talented artists who’ve always managed to make me look way better than I actually am.
We just had some of the artwork from the Penny Arcade CCG printed out on giant banners for PAX this year. Hawks colors on that project still knock me out every time I look at them.
Now try and imagine that about 10 feet tall and you’ll get an idea of how cool our new PAX banners are.
I know Hawk uses a Wacom Cintiq and I really wish he’d release a movie or something that shows him using the device. I’ve seen a couple other videos of people using the Cintiq but none of them really had the chops to show what the thing can do. It was like watching a monkey try to drive a Porsche. I need to see someone like Hawk put a Cintiq through its paces before I drop almost three grand on one.
Also, After wrapping up Outbound Flight I’m now reading the new Republic Commando book Triple Zero. Some of you might be interested to know it features Delta Squad. For those of you who don’t remember, that’s the squad you play as in the Republic Commando game. So if you were a fan of Fixer, Scorch and Sev you might want to pick up the book. They’re great characters and God only knows if Lucas Arts will ever give us another installment of that game. This might be your only chance to meet up with those characters again.
