Ahoy! Ship Jumper Vol 4 page 9 is up NOW! I highly recommend going and looking back at the start of Vol 1 and comparing what we saw from Piper and Ellis’ point of view VS Rhinston’s story. Who’s the reliable narrator here? OH and the Mermaid!~
Hey Wednesday! It’s my late half of Devoto’s and my sketch trade! When I was trying to think what I wanted to do I felt like I had to bring color into it, so it’s less a sketch then a speed paint-y kind of thing. My take on Zima from the amazing Devoto comic! Hope I didn’t misinterpret the character too much! Sorry I took it gruesome instead of sexy, I had dental surgery today so that may have had something to do with it…
OMG- I can’t believe I forgot to post this post Ahn!Con! Sorry my scanner has seen better days as well~
Sketch trade of Piper from Ship Jumper by Grave Impressions!!!
Ahoy! Ship Jumper Vol 4 page 8 is up NOW! Aw man Rhinston’s faaaaccceeeeee… More plot weirdness ensues~
Also- I’m toying with the idea of doing Special Edition NYC in leu of NYCcomiccon which is expensive and insane- anybody interested in this con?
Hey all! I just wanted to add that a lot of you are very WTF! after the last couple pages and that’s GOOD! This chapter is about mysteries and you don’t have all the info! It’s not answer time- it’s sharing your crazy theories time~
Hey everyone, I’m curious.
This is to everyone who make art or admire it.
What sort of art style in webcomics are you guys interested in and why? You can respond with images as examples. I’d love to see what everyone thinks.
Reblogging for the evening crew! I want to hear your thoughts
Oh man! At least for my personal art style I really enjoy a nice thick line. I was told back in the day in art school that I had a ‘heavy hand’, and back when I did things more non-digitally, I would go at a piece of paper until I was practically carving into it. BUT that being said, while I enjoy that and have cultivated that style because it works for me, I really enjoy a light touch in other art/comics I read. One of my fav artists is (my pal) kisskicker (hellcorpceo on DA) because she can do everything. The lighting is always insane- can do outline, no outline, digital painting, all of it craze balls.
I love and really respect full color comics especially because I will admit to NOT being the best colorist. It takes me too long for it to look good to be able to keep to my comic update schedule. I fear using more than 3 colors at a time deep down in my soul. But then on the other hand I really LIKE a monochromatic style (which is what I did for the first 3 Volumes of Ship Jumper) like in the amazing comic O Human Star. I guess the only style that really isn’t my thing is that super saturated, hi glossy superhero comic style.
And of COURSE I love art that is sexy and explicit and hilarious- the Oglaf trifecta~
A little while ago, I won a Piper plush from Ship Jumper Comic!! He arrived and had a look around Phoenix. Had the misfortune of backing into a cactus! Met some terrifying residents who will not let him go! They are my ball jointed dolls Takaba Ryuu, Blaidd Drwg, Ra, (unnamed), Iwan, and Carys. Babies are Tatsu, Kira, Shishi, Hana Akai, and Eirwyn, probably should have gotten them out of the photo. Though it is not explicit and who knows what the boys do to Piper each evening!!
Some of the dialogue is from Ship Jumper Volume 1.
(It has been a long time since I made a photo story so hopefully doesn’t suck too badly. Last one was boys love and that needed little dialogue.)
OMG this is TOO CUTE!!! Thank you so much for making it!~ I am glad Piper went to live with you- I’m sure he’ll make new friends and forget allllll about sailing soon enough~
Aaand while I’m at it, another long overdue sketch! This time for Lena, who makes Shipjumper. Which I always, always typo as “chipjumper” for some reason, which I’m pretty sure is a form of fraternity hazing where they make you jump on Doritos. Anyway! We met up at Ahn!Con and totally meant to do a sketch exchange while we were then and then…? I don’t know, cons always go faster than you think they will. I thought I had oodles of time until the exact moment I realized I had to be out the door….
Anyway, as you could probably guess from “Ahn!Con” and “this guy with no shirt on”, Shipjumper (chipjumper) is another… man I never know what the hell we’re supposed to call ourselves. M/M comic? BL? I think BL is the commonest one right now. It’s sexy, sexy sailors, plus horns and mermaids and assorted sauciness. It also gets right to the goods, praise be <3. Go on, take a look!
OMG yay!!!! I LOVE IT! LOL I will now be compelled to draw chip jumper fanart~ Hooray for Ahn!Con friendship~
