One of the sketches that was waiting for color so patiently has been rewarded with color. Well, I hope it was a reward and not a miserable failure. Still working out color schemes and toning. I want the books to have a monochromatic look with a blue tone. Not quite sure this is the exact look but it's a start. Still figuring a look for the texture, too. I don't want to get too fancy as there are people who do it better and that's not quite the look I want.
A couple of quick drawings. The left one is a drawing working out a couple different characters for a story I'm working on and I just wanted to draw weird space scene on the right. Both done during the time I was teaching a summer cartooning class for high schoolers. Both now patiently await color.
I drew this during Graduation ceremonies on the back of a folder, still no color. Influenced I'm sure by this guy's art I've been admiring.
