Pencil Portrait
Just another pencil portrait I did to get back into drawing after comic con.

Care not a Straw
Finally finished this! Large-format black pencil drawing of Lessandero.
As usual the scanner did a number on the shading, it looks much better in the original. But I'm pretty happy with it, the pose and the anatomy worked out mostly and I even got that lighting effect that I was going for almost right.

Bolt as Brass Coverart

This one's been up on all my other pages for weeks because I did a cover reveal with the pre-orders. I didn't really have time to take care of deviantart for a while there, and since I wasn't expecting any pre-orders here, I kept putting it off - but now the comic is out and the stress has subsided a little bit. So I can finally reveal the final cover art for my comic on here, too!
I'm really happy with it, I think it's one of the best full-body drawing I've done to date and I like the energy. I hope you guys like it, too!

I'm mostly selling my baby on conventions so far, but I will put up a few copies of it on Etsy soon if anyone's interested in buying one but can't make it to my cons. 
I'm of course happy about your interest, so let me know if you want to know more! :3

Ace Pencil Sketch (daily sketch 121/365)
Another quick coloured pencil sketch I did. This time of Alistair, because it's his birthday today! :heart:
He's got a bit of a Disney face, but I actually like it.

Sander Pencil portrait (daily sketch 119/365)
Because you cannot have me sit at a table with paper and pencils and expect me not to be obnoxious and draw something.

hand study V (daily sketch 97/365)
The hands are becoming fewer, but more confident I believe. Definitely quicker.

hand study IV (daily sketch 96/365)
yadda yadda you know the gist

hand study III (daily sketch 95/365)
One more warm-up hand study. I'm still not happy with their look but at least my speed is improving lol

hand study II (daily sketch 94/365)
Another warm-up of hands. Worse than the one from yesterday I think. BLERGH.

Hand Study (Daily Sketch 93/365)
I hate that after all these years of drawing, I still have such an enormous problem with drawing hand. So I'm gonna do some studies over the next few weeks, I hope that'll help my understanding of hands. I've been through the theory of it a hundred time over, it just won't stick.

Comic Preview II (Daily Sketch 74-75/365)
I think I'm starting to get the hang of the whole architecture thing a little bit. I can already see that everything's gonna look pretty much the same all the time, but at least it's gonna look decent :D

Charcoal Portrait Demian (Daily Sketch 65/365)
So I tried something new the other day!
This is a portrait of charcoal (and a little bit of white crayon) on brown paper, roughly 10 x 8 in.
The proportios got a little bit out of hand, as they tend to do for me when I work on large canvases. I like the overall effect though, the charcoal was very interesting to work with, and this is the first time I feel like I have more or less captured Demian's character when trying to draw him realistically. I tried it a bunch of times before, but it always turned out awful.

Demian belongs to me!

Bolt as Brass Preview Page (Daily Sketch 69/365)
Inking a comic is not always fun. This page in particular was a pain in the ass. But SO worth it.
If I hadn't fucked up so badly with Demian pose in the third panel, this could have been a perfect page.

I actually didn't want to show off any previews before the comic's done, but I just couldn't hold back with this one.

Obviously references were used for buildings and some of the plants, and perspective is a lil bitch.

On the Road WIP
WIP of the current halfbody of Demian that I'm working on. It's not going very well. I'm not sure why, but I just can't manage to make a decent picture of Demian. ARGH.
His skin tone just doesn't seem to work. I don't know what to do tbh. 
I'm just gonna keep going and hope it becomes decent at some point.

Daily Sketch 62/365
Another warm-up sheet, finally!

- sketch of a new halfbody of Demian that I want to start today.
- another try at the nymphs... they're gonna be hard to grasp.
- pose sketch, I was trying to convey shyness / nervousness, didn't really work well
- few quick expressions for Dorian
