Sketches, Stories and Other Stuff from Tom Ruegger
Any particular reason that you draw some eyes in perspective while on some characters they just lie in the middle? I think it's kind of cool. And also, how do you color these? With ink and paint, or by computer?
I tend to go with whatever strikes me, whatever looks right to me at the moment. I like the flat designs, but sometimes I get a better expression by using a bit of perspective. Everything here started with a pencil and paper. All of the comic strips and other cartoons are finished as black and white drawings with ink on paper. Once scanned, the photoshop process begins. Much of the coloring is new. A few strips were drawn, inked and colored a while back. When it's not photoshop, it's pretty obvious.
