Playing with Color

January 21, 2016By jayBlog


Playing with Color 2015 was a year of #color. I hadn't done much with color before that (except a long long time before that) and I had forgotten a lot of techniques. Last year I determined to break the color barrier and while I'm still not great at it, I got better. This year, I want to become fluent in it. I want to in color and in color. I will still be doing a ton of #inking, but color will be in there too. Here's a using the on with the #procreateapp. Yesterday, was at http://tomyandjon.com.

Writing Project and Art

August 22, 2011By jayart, Faerie-tales, story, Writing

In June, I wrote about a writing project that I have been working on. I, also, stated that I would post a final image that I had been painting. Well, I finished it a month back and have been dabbling with the title font. (Title withheld for now.)

I am going to go ahead and post the cover and one spot illustration.

by Jay Myers

At this time, I will be providing a few spot illustrations to go along with my story. My hope is that I can add more spot illustrations to the next story—then more, and more, until I am providing a comic style bed-time tale. We will see. I might discover along the way that that isn’t the best direction. I am open to the change.

by Jay Myers

At first, I had intended to do watercolor, but as I don’t have a ton of time I am leaning back on digital coloring. I have a few more illustrations to draw and color and then I will be compiling the text and images into an eBook format.

 

I will post more info the closer I get.

 

 

No Comments

July 27, 2011By jaytechnology, Writing

I am asked why I don’t have comment enabled. The short answer is because they take too much time.

The long answer is: I don’t have a lot of time, to even write a post, draw a picture to accompany it, and to then respond. I don’t have time to moderate and control spam (yes, I know that there are some well written spam filters). I would like to, but I am unable. In light of the time restraints that I have, I prefer to use said time for writing and learning to draw better.

[I apologies if this is offensive. I just have to focus on what the goal is and it isn’t to create dialogue. It is to record, publish, and push myself. It might not appear that I have done a lot of pushing, but I have.]

I understand that a blog is considered a interactive newsletter, a community dialogue, and a place for interaction with the author or illustrator, but I haven’t the time to devote to all of it. Maybe in the future this will change.

Until then, if you are interested in sharing with me, connect with me via or comment via my contact page. Twitter is best/quickest way to get a response. I am interested in dialogue, I just don’t have much time for it.

If you write I will respond when I am able.

 

 

 

Creation: Day One

July 26, 2011By jayart, Faerie-tales, humor, miscelany, story, Writing

The Creator saw Light and smiled.

Then He rent light from light—bright light torn from dark light—with a crackle. God named the new sound, Crackle. Crackle, looked around. Bright Light was next to him and knew that he was bound to her.

Bright Light saw her brother Dark Light and moved to be near him. The closer she came the further he moved away.

With a laugh he fled.

With a giggle she pursued him with Crackle hot on her heals.

There was Evening there was Morning chasing him all over the sky, day 1.
