A big turn for the comic... DUH DUH DUH

Well the comic is cranking along. One of the takes me about 3 hours from start to finish. It'd be fun to finish the comic up before x-mas. But coloring is awhole nother ballpark. If anyone wants to get me a wacom tablet for free please do.

I need to get back to painting soon tho. I hate staying away from the canvas for too long. Its been a week. Hmmmm.

Any feedback so far? Anyone keeping up with the series?

Starting to color them...

After browsing the b log of some profesisonal artists it struck me that I am still not doing nearly enough if I ever want to become a great artist. So I am going to try and update this site everyday, and try to draw/patin for 3 hours a day. I am more telling this on here becasuse I hear that telling your freinds somehting makes you do it.

We'll see how it goes.

Anyways, here are some shots of whats going on now:

Big News. Jusitn Coombs art V3 is getting some good traffic, and I will have the store seciton up ASAP.

I am brainstroming ideas for including a media package with any art that is pruchased that would include some goodies. I will wokrout the logistics on my trip home this december. Shipping form Japan is a non-possibility.

Well I have been a little busy. Actually the bulk of these three was done in one day. It is crazy how much you can get done if you really buckle down. Its all about not looking at or God I love those websites. I also like because the Wii is going to kick your mother. It's that good.

The two comics are pages 3 and 4 of what is turning out to be a great experiment. I basically drew these in cafes and on a trainride from Satte to Shibuya (about 1 hour 20 minutes).

The painting is part 3 of the series. Wiring. I did a series of drawings in Italy based on the same Motif (check justincoombsart drawing section.) This series does two main things, both practical. First it is part of a cohesive whole that galleries love. And second it is keeping my academic paitnitng standards up to a certain level of abilty (I have given up on the possibility of finding a ude model, so my Charcoal skills are non-existant yet again... such things arent always possible).

I AM ASKING ONE THING :) If you visit the Justin Coombs Art V3 site what are your favorite pieces? Im thinking of selling the cowboy drawings on this blog for like 50$ apiece with shipping/frame and media package. Interested? Or should I make posters of some of my paintings and sell those for like 30$? What do you all want/ or would buy if you have 50-300$ HEEB.

Oh and whaddya guys think of cowboys and aliens so far?

Justin Coombs Art v3 is UP


I am wainting on Paypal to send me verificaiton. They need business days. But everything besides the store and cmoics is up. It has been a long wekeend of updating this new stuff and building the site, but it looks much better and is much simpler to navigate.

Plus the store should be exciting as it will give everyone an opportunity to buy some goods. I am looking into making some Giclee Prints (because original paintings are too expensive). Another option I am looking into is publishing some big posters. I dont speak japanese so Im gonna keep my eyes open, and maybe get a good jap speaker to translate some goodness.

Neways. I am working on Page 2 of Cowboys and aliens. It looks better than the first page. I will be updating this comic on my blog and on my comics section.

In addition there should be a new comic popping up there sometime this week. MWAHAHA

neways. Ill keep you posted.

in the meantime here are some random pics. YAY
