In the midst of the wild variety of sketch cards I did for last week’s blog I placed one sketch of myself as The Tick. That was the card that got the most responses and it inspired me to do this week’s doodle.
This rendition is a combo of the color of the live action Tick, the musculature of the comic book Tick and the face of the animated Tick all filtered through my style and placed on a Rochester landmark. I hand drew and inked the figure and background on separate pages, then scanned them and digitally colored them. The clouds in the back were created in Photoshop by filling a layer with blue, rendering clouds and then sizing them to fit. This was my fun response to insomnia induced by coffee after dinner (will I never learn).
