Daily Sketch 019- GRENDEL

Ok, I missed a couple of days there, but we're preparing to have a baby tomorrow so things have been very busy around here ! Todays sketch is Matt Wagner's GRENDEL. I just wanted to do something very quick and was actually going for more of a messy look here, and I like the way it came out. So this will probably be the last post for a while. I may post a random sketch here & there but it will be a bit before I get back into the daily sketch flow again. Hopefully won't be too long. See you soon !

Daily Sketch 018- SANDMAN

I really liked yesterdays Death sketch, so I decided to roll that theme over to today with SANDMAN, or MORPHEUS, or DREAM, of THE ENDLESS.

Daily Sketch 017- DEATH, of THE ENDLESS

Hey everyone ! Ladies week concludes with Neil Gaiman's DEATH, of THE ENDLESS. Probably the most popular of The Endless characters, other than The Sandman himself. I like how this one turned out !

I'll be continuing the Daily Sketches into the beginning of the week, but then taking a break for a bit as my wife and I will be having a baby on Thursday ! So I will definitely try to get back to it as soon as possible, but after Wednesday the sketches will probably be on hiatus for a bit. Thanks again to everyone who has given support and positive feedback on these so far !

Daily Sketch 016- ZEE HERNANDEZ

So yeah, did something quite a bit different today. Had a little down time at the end of my work day so I decided to do today's sketch ON MY PHONE !

It's ZEE HERNANDEZ, from DMZ. Did this using Sketchbook Mobile for iPhone and a cheap Griffin stylus. This was totally fun, and being able to use multiple layers is totally foreign to me but pretty damn cool. I'll have to do a few more like this for sure.

Daily Sketch 014- JENNIE 2.5

LADIES WEEK continues today with JENNIE 2.5, from Brian Wood's CHANNEL ZERO. Hey, have you guys noticed I draw a lot of Brian Wood characters ? It's only because the books are so amazing ! CHANNEL ZERO was originally published in 1997, but Dark Horse Comics just released a brand new collected edition last week, and it's really cool. Go get it !

Daily Sketch 013- ALANA, from SAGA

I'm back with another late night post tonight. After a LONG day of work and the family all in bed, I had a little time to sit down and knock this one out. Someone mentioned to me a while back that they don't see me draw very many women. I think that's probably just because I've never been very good at it. But I've tried to stick with a LADIES WEEK type of theme for the last few days.

Tonight's subject is none other than the lovely ALANA, one of the focal characters of Vaughan & Staples SAGA. I know I've mentioned it before, but seriously, everyone needs to be reading this book. I'm absolutely in love with it !

Daily Sketch 011- ARIEL, from GREEN WAKE

Hello again ! First off, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has given positive feedback on the daily sketches. I've really been enjoying doing them, and feel like I'm definitely growing as an artist by trying some new and different things.

Speaking of new things, I certainly did something a little different today. Today's subject is ARIEL, from Kurtis J Wiebe and Riley Rossmo's haunting and heartbreaking Image Comics series, GREEN WAKE. I decided to experiment with some color again. I used a slightly different watercolor technique, creating washes with different colored Bombay India inks. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and I think it definitely conveys the type of mood and tone I was looking for. I really would like to try some proper watercolors eventually, so once i get a nice st of paints we'll see how that goes. Thanks for stopping by !

Daily Sketch 009- OLIGNOSTIC

Hi guys. Had a little trouble coming up with a theme for today, and I really needed to do a quick one. I went with an Olignostic, from Monocyte, since the book is still fresh on my mind. Thanks for checking it out !
