THE KING III - final

Hello again,

You might have noticed I played a round with the titles of a couple posts here. The last post I did was originally THE KING III, but since it wasn't technically a finished piece (and i wasn't happy with it anyway), I decided to just call it something else.

Anyhow, here is the "THE KING III". I did a rough of this in my sketchbook the other day, and was really pleased with the look of it. So I decided to do a full piece for it. It's a little different look for my guy here. I've been toying with some story ideas for this fella for a while, and the more I draw him, the more the story seems to evolve.

I'm actually thinking about doing some art prints of some of these pieces. If that's something anyone would be interested in, please let me know in the comment section below this post so I can get a gauge on the level of interest.

As always, thanks for reading !

THE KING sketch

Hi, everyone ! Here's a quick piece I did yesterday. Not exactly thrilled with the way it came out, but I promised myself that I would post some failures as well as successes here. Anyway, I had an idea for this piece and for some reason I just couldn't execute what I wanted to do with it. So I ended up just rushing through it, and that usually doesn't end well. There's just a lot wrong with this. Maybe I'll use this as a reference and make a second attempt at this one somewhere down the line. Even though it looks bad, it felt good just to sit down and draw something after not having done it in a few weeks.

Thanks for reading !
