Here are some sketches that have been staring back at me from my bulletin board, waiting to be inked, for a couple months now. I finally took down these neglected drawings and put the brush to the paper today. I've posted a couple of these characters before but this might be the first time I've posted the hairy guy on the left. I'm quite fond of the design of this character. My favorite attribute of his is not visible in this pose--it's a fluffy little bunny tail sticking out of the back of his leather drawers.
I've said it before that I am most at ease and having the most fun when drawing in this more cartoony style. Unfortunately, the economics of the industry, to date, aren't demanding a lot of artist's working in this style. I do think that it's starting to change. So if anyone from Scholastic's Graphix! line is reading this--give me a call!
I've posted some other sketches in this style before, although this is the first time they've been inked properly with a brush. You can find those posts here , over here , and of course, here.
