Kate in a Labcoat by aethre Kate in a Labcoat by aethre
Kate in a labcoat! Cuz there was a poll on the sanctuaryforall LJ comm that asked who rocked the labcoat the best (I voted Helen, of course). Kate, while an option on the poll, actually hasn't worn a labcoat on the show soooo....

It had to be done?

Actually, it has to be done twice - well after I started drawing this one, it was agreed that Kate needs to pretend to be a doctor on some sort of con and flirt with proper doctors to distract them. So I'm sketching that now too.

One day I'll draw the other Sanctuary characters... one day.

Your experiment in changing up the variation in your line weights was somewhat successful. If you really want your line work to be stronger, you should use the line weight to help describe the object you are drawing. If everything on the image is using the same amount of variation in line weights it doesn't really matter what brush size you use. I'm not great at it myself, I recommend staring at someone who is good at lineworks art until your eyes bleed, and then try to do what they are doing.

I actually wasn't experimenting with that at all - it's just more noticeable when I increase the brush size, XD

But, yeah, I need to follow more people good with lineart on dA.

I actually emailed Dave Kellet about the topic of inking, he recommended i track down a book called "the art of comic book inking" by Gary Martin. I havent found it yet tho.

If you find good linework on DA though pass that along to me. I want to make my line art strong enough to not need color.

Yeah, I've only found people selling it used. Which is better than nothing, and I might just drop the 50 bucks for it if Dave Kellet recommends it.

I know what you mean. The reviews are pretty mixed on Amazon but it still sounds pretty neat. I'll have to double check the local libraries for a copy.

Me too!

I suspect that it was Helen who recruited her. Helen always gets her way.

Thanks!

Yeah, there's not nearly enough Kate love in the Sanctuary fandom. Such a shame; Kate's such an awesome character. XD
