Kirby Challenge: Big Barda
Big Barda
August 28th would be the 100th birthday of Jack Kirby if he was alive.

To celebrate I have been trying to draw at least one different character of his each day. 
The first set of characters I have drawn is from his Mister Miracle comic book.…

Well it is now April 3, which means my project of Manga March Madness has officially more than ended. My official scanned drawing count is 25. I still have about three more that are penciled and needs inked, and another three more that are rough outlines. I will posting all of those as they get finished and I have time to scan them. 

Overall I'm fairly pleased with this little project. I would say it was a rather large learning experience. There are so many other characters I want to draw, and I actually started to read some new manga in the process. 

If you notice that my drawing style and influence changed as I went. Sometimes I was trying to capture the feel of the actual book, or artist. Other times I was adding a ton of detail. Towards the end of the month I started looking at Alex Toth artwork and started to incorporate his minimal but well detailed lines. He was a master at black and white and what lines to exaggerate and thicken over what ones should be thinner. He also knew how to add the right amount of detail without going overboard. I feel that the earlier drawings in the month sometimes got lost in detail, where the later drawings I started to learn to hold back some of that detail. Anyhow I like the process of learning and the results I hope anyone reading this will look at them and enjoy them also.

So here is the official list.

No problem. Your photos are pretty. Should take more or something. The dress design is nice too, my gf would probably like a dress like that.

I'll get some more up, hopefully next the dress I'm making... Though I'm not sure if I'll have pictures of it ready to be put up here until like Feb.
