Sketchbook Monday #77

This may be the last Sketchbook Monday I do. Not the last one this year, the last one period. No one really reads the blog as it is, so I might as well save my efforts for entries that are more worthwhile. Meh.

sketchA character design for a super-quick game idea. Except that nothing is super-quick with me. I could turn The Raven into War and Peace without so much breaking a sweat. And I could do it in my sleep. With both arms tied behind my back. And a blindfold. Although if I were sleeping, that’d be kind of redundant.

sketchThis is the co-pilot design. The idea of the game is that you’re piloting a drill from the Earth’s crust all the way to its molten iron core. Really, from a gameplay standpoint, you’d only need one character to personify the player, but I felt like giving the hero a co-pilot so here she is.

sketchHere they are together. They make a cute couple, don’t they?

sketchOne more of the girl.

sketchSomething I just felt like sketching; a girl in a basketball jersey.

sketchThis is what I wasted my time on all last week. This page is an excerpt from a simple sketched draft of a short story in comic form. The draft is complete, but as usual, I am doomed to never finish anything so don’t expect to ever see me work on the real thing. 🙁 There’s fourteen more pages besides this one. Ouch! It was well over what I was shooting for.

Sketchbook Monday #76

I’m not wild about this new sketchbook I’ve purchased. The paper is too dark and flimsy, and the scans are coming out very poorly (though a bit better than I expected they would, I will admit). I’ll probably try to “burn through” this paper as quickly as I possibly can. In the meantime, here’s a very, very late Sketchbook Monday.

sketchStill experimenting with the art style for Under a Different Moon. Here’s an older version of Iccari, along with ????. I’d like to serialize the story here on Vision Riders, but I’m waiting on input first. I want the story to be the best it can possibly be, despite its age and cliché-ridden plot.

sketchLook, it’s anime Iccari!

sketchHere’s a more realistic rendition that my sketchbook paper utterly ruined. This is close to the style I’d like to use, but it wouldn’t look right with my horrid skill, so I’m afraid to use it at all. Oh, how I wish I could paint! T_T
