…of a sort.  No, I’m not dead, although the distance between posts would probably convince people otherwise.  I finally got my shit together (summer has been unnecessarily busy) and there should be a new page of Sorrel and Artichoke by tomorrow.  It features this guy:

He gets some lines, which can only be a good thing.


The Omniscient Orb, Page 6

…is up on Webcomics Nation.  A week late, I know.  Deadlines, even self-imposed ones, are unfortunately something that I subconsciously ignore.  Anyhow, it’s there, and unless the mafia, zombies, or transit police come to my house and kill me in the meantime, there should be another page up on Thursday.

The Future of Sorrel and Artichoke

Posted in Sorrel and Artichoke on June 2, 2010 by Davie

From now on, I’m hosting The Omniscient Orb and all subsequent episodes on Webcomics Nation.  Hopefully, this will bring in more readers and provide a slightly better format.  Here’s the homepage, and look, page 5 is up!

In lieu of an OO page today (What I really meant was I’ll be able to start updating on Thursday) here is a drawing  I did for a friend as a birthday present.  I draw robots freehand all the time, but this is the first time I’d tried to fully refine a robot illustration.  He looks kind of like he’s made of plastic instead of metal, but oh well.  It’s in color, which is nice.


Back in Action!

My software’s finally working again.  As such, I should be able to resume the regular update schedule for The Omniscient Orb.  Which makes me happy.  It should make you happy too.

Some randomness.

I’m really trying to get in the habit of posting more frequently, so I’ll be putting up more scraps and sketches, I think.  Stuff that’s hardly mind-blowing, but perhaps still worth a look.  So here’s a loose, half-hour drawing I did for a friend, an excellent artist in her own right.  You should check out her stuff if you have any interest in rather lighthearted manga-style artwork.

He has a ridiculous ponytail thing.

Now with added Sexy Wizard

This is a first-time occurrence.  I predicted new content to put up on the site this week, and I do in fact have new content to put up on the site this week.  Wow.  Maybe I’m finally getting my act together.  Anyhow, due to an exporting error, the Photoshop piece I was working on meticulously and carefully had its resolution drastically reduced for no apparent reason, to the point wehre I couldn’t really finish it with any hope of it looking good.  In a rage, I started painting something else, with no particular plan in mind, and four hours later I had produced a rather easy-on-the-eyes spellcaster.  It’s by far the best color work I’ve ever done.  I’m just a little bit pleased with myself.

There are a few anatomical and lighting issues, for sure, which I may attempt to improve at some point, but it is, for all intents and purposes, finished.  Whoop!

UPDATE: Posted a slightly refined version.  Props to Jake for pointing out some flaws.
