About Kav

After drawing for 30 years it all came together for me and I was finally able to draw at a professional level. There was something I was missing all those years-struggling-but when I realized the secret BAM my stuff started getting good. Now I have several books under my belt, a weekly column at Comic Related http://comicrelated.com/news/15508/kavs-tips and crank 5 pages a week while working full time.

freehand experiment

Josh has always wanted me to freehand but i told him i sucked at it and drew this page to show him but…HE LIKED IT.

ps these are small panels like 2 by 3 inches  larger panels will obviously look better so this is encouraging.   That is, it’s giving me COURAGE.

Kav, this page is fantastic. Looking as critically as I can, some of your clothing does not quite hang like it should. Panel 2 does not look like a guy in a suit crouching down. It does not look bad, it just looks off.
Also, the woman in panel 3 has oddly skinny legs.
And that’s about it.
I am very excited about where this is taking you.

dude in panel 2 is wearing a kinetic outfit and the chick is a skinny crack ho.

i also found a way to bluescreen it in gallery:

Battery pin Up

So josh wanted a pin up of an RC character and I went with battery….unfortunately Josh didn’t like it so we’re on to plan ‘B’….

Not that I didn’t like it exactly. But as a pin-up in issue 2, it didn’t quite do enough for the series as a whole. This early on, information and page space are at a premium. If we are going to take a page to show off a character, then we have to not only tell the reader something about that character… but make sure that it’s something they will want to come back for.
This image just doesn’t quite do that.
It was dumb of me to assume you knew the character as well as I did. I should have sent you a quick write up as soon as you selected him.

actually I did know all about battery and his alien lego powers what I didn’t know was that you wanted me to depict that somehow.  The only info I got was ‘I need a pin up’….of course I should have requested more info-that’s on me.
