Toned-paper rules!

Just recently I was given a toned sketchbook from my friend Becky to try out. I was always a bit frightened to try to draw on toned paper. I guess the idea of adding the highlights and shadows always seemed a little daunting to me, but after trying it out with my new Kuretake brush pen, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it! I even went out to buy a few more books the next day 'cause I knew I might be going through this first one more quickly than I thought. Here's a couple little collages I made of some of my better sketches. I know that they're not that great, but they sure were fun to do!

Dialog test

Hello again! Alright!, barely more than a week after my last post and here I am posting again! Well, not only am I having a lot of fun drawing and posting this, but hopefully I'm availing myself of any "on notice" lists or e-bombs from Osgood. This evening I was having a little fun wrestling with a piece of dialog I wanted to traditionally animate. I'm not sure where it's from, and obviously I was having a little trouble drawing the hands on the last pose, but it's definitely been a really great drawing challenge for me! These are some of my thumbnails from about the first third of the dialog, enjoy!

Doggies and Samurai!

Wow, after only two weeks of not posting Osgood's already about to put me on his "on-notice" list again?! Yipes! Well, here's a few things that I've been working on lately, hopefully this will keep me off the list for now. After finishing and touching up my website and all the extra hours I've been putting in at my part-time job, I haven't had time to work on much of anything. These last couple days though I started to work on some new storyboard samples for my portfolio staring two of my favorite characters I created, Samurai Jill and Lucky the dog. Here's some preliminary sketches I did on the characters before I stared storyboarding as well as some new cafe sketches and an attempt to caricature my brother-in-law. Enjoy!
