I recently stumbled on the wonderful work of Toerning through one of her few, but very useful, tutorials. Her tutorials are filled with tips about lighting, perspective, composition and colour, and well worth a gander.
Often working with traditional mediums such as ink, acrylics or gouache. Toerning’s knowledge of lighting and colour really stands out. Though, her marrying of both traditional and digital processes create some stunning results, as seen in her Selkie pieces.
In the post today I received a copy of Delilah Dirk and the Seeds of Good Fortune by the very talented Tony Cliff. Delilah Dirk is the successful webcomic series, nominated for Shuster, Harvey and Eisner award. It has recently been picked up by publishers First Second whom will be releasing a paperback edition in August.
Besides Delilah Dirk, Tony Cliff also contributed to the Flight anthology, and keeps a pretty tidy blog. Packed with latest news, sketches and his popular tutorials.
