Inktober Day 8


#Inktober Day 8. Of course, I have to have an Athena Voltaire drawing in there! Another digital piece in Manga Studio 5 with Frenden brushes.

This one grew out of a sketchbook study of body postures. I’ll probably use it for something else and add to it.

#Inktober Day 7! Michonne from the Walking Dead. Brush-pen & brush on 9×12 Bristol board. The original is for sale: $100. Email SteveBryantArt at gmail dot com if interested.

Also, I did another time-lapse video. Last time, I was too conscious of obscuring the camera and probably didn’t ink it the way I usually do (closer to the board), so here’s a new one. The first part, when I’m inking finer details, I’m in frame a lot more. I’m in there less as it goes along.

Inktober Day 6


Welcome to #Inktober day 6! Today is a part technical exercise, and part exploration. When I started using the awesome @Frenden brushes in Manga Studio, I found a couple that I really liked and used them a lot. Okay, pretty much exclusively.

However. there are a ton of great brushes in the set, so I started messing with a bunch that were new to me. I did a quick sketch and layed it out in multiple rows of 5. I then grabbed the next brush in the queue, letting the qualities of the brush help shape my approach on that particular piece.

Tomorrow will be something a bit more elaborate…and probably ink on paper!

Inktober Day 2


Okay, Inktober Day 2 is in the books. Today’s selection is David Bowie’s character, Jareth, from the movie Labyrinth.

It’s pencilled digitally and printed in blueline on 9×12 Bristol board. Inks are with a #2 Windsor-Newton Series 7 brush and a few bits of hatching done with a Zebra brush pen.

Inktober Day 1


For the first time, I’m participating in Inktober! I digitally penciled a few of these in advance, printed them to blueline board and am off and running!

First up is Marvel Comics’ Spider-Gwen. I used a Zebra brush pen and a Copic grey marker on 9×12 Bristol board. Large black areas were filled in with a Windsor-Newton Series 7 brush (#2) and Speedball India ink. Fog efx are my fingerprints.

Additionally, this piece is for sale. $50 + shipping.

Ghoul Scouts Review Roundup, part 1

gs01_all_covsWe’ve gotten some great reviews for Ghoul Scouts already! Here’s what folks are saying:

Susan from The Pullbox says, “While the aim of this series is an all-ages book, it doesn’t pander to the target audience. It’s a good read for comic lovers of any age, because this is just….fun. Enjoy it. I know I did.”  See Susan’s whole review here.

Sharon of I Smell Sheep rates the book 5 out of 5 Sheep, saying, “The fast paced story offers touching moments, as the characters deepen their friendship, and fighting sequences.”  Read Sharon’s complete review here. 

Carl Boehm from Comic Bastards gives Ghoul Scouts 4/5, and says, “The team on this book made something fun and wonderful that readers of any age will enjoy.  In a time where the pre-teen cartoon is nothing more than a nostalgic memory, Ghoul Scouts stands in to provide something fun and crazy for an age group that needs more than the hate-filled chat channels of popular video games.”  The rest of Carl’s review is here. 

Thanks very much to all of these reviewers for taking the time to read and assess our book!
