Today’s project is the cover art for the next Schlock Mercenary collection, Big Dumb Objects. I’ll be starting with concept thumbnails, so if you show up early and join the discussion, you might just influence the final product!
I’ll also be taking suggestions for future streams, and I might even work on some Schlock Mercenary comics if I get stalled on the cover.
This video is 28 minutes long, and was created yesterday (October 2nd) for my Twitch stream. I’m experimenting a bit with streaming because they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and I’m interested in proving them wrong. Or maybe I’ll just be cited as an exception to the rule. Perhaps people will say it doesn’t count because I’m not old.
It doesn’t matter. All of those qualify as win conditions for me.
I’m getting ready to stream again in about 20 minutes, because today’s #Inktober prompt is “Bait” and my brother told me that if I draw anything ELSE it would be “bait and switch” so now I need to do that.
We’re still struggling to get the art cam working, but we’ve narrowed the problem to the USB ports on the host machine. Producer Donald is still troubleshooting it, and I’m hopeful that this week we’ll have LIVE VIDEO of me doing color sketches of in-game events.
If we can’t get it to work, well, I’ll just draw things off-camera and then hold them up when I’m done.
