Been working on some new stuff lately, slowly but surely. If you follow my boy Jaime, then you probably know we're working together on a project. He's getting his stuff together, as am I. Not sure exactly when we're launching, as it's currently hinging on me finishing up the last few drawings on my end. I figure posting something resembling an announcement on here will keep me on track. Maybe... Anyway, yesterday did some ink practice in a new sketchbook I started a couple weeks back, with some OK results.
These are the first two sketches I did, getting really loose and crazy with my inking. Initial sketches were done with my trusty Hunt 512, and then I went crazy with some brush work. I sorta like the mood these tones, coupled with the color of paper, create.
This is the final sketch I did of the same character. I decided to just go in with my brushes and try and push the values a little. I rather like the "rawness" of this type of inking. There are some errors, but I like the mood of it at least. I think if I do another drawing of this detective-type character, I'll probably age him up a little to fit into the role. Don't know what I'll do with him ultimately, but hopefully I'll come up with a story for him eventually...
More to come! Until then, later!
