~ Sketch Dump ~
...or more like sketch constipation, since I haven't really dumped anything on here in awhile. But all hail Photoshop, which has decided to work again - and the scanner, which has always been a little trooper.
Ok, onto the sketches. Some randomage, some story ideas. A few are older pieces that I liked anyhow:
(These aren't them, however. From last week I think.)
-Some fantasy samurais. And a white ninja bookin' out of a castle with a TV under his arm. Because I like historical accuracy.
-Oh, pesky female ninja... If Lucha Libre has taught me anything, it's that lady ninjas don't like to sneak so much as they like to do backflips at (*a-hem*) revealing angles in relation to the viewer. Never the (male) artist's fault, of course; he has no choice. Laws of Physics and all...
-Only thing that's missing are the Sun Chips...
-Ballpoint pen on this one. Did this while watching a documentary on an Australian pilot, Valentich, who apparently disappeared on a routine flight to Tasmania. Read more here.
-I like the second one better. Not coincidentally, it was the later sketch of the two. And yes, I have been reading Asterix. In Old Norse. (En kvæðin þykkja mér sízt or stað fœrðehurdygurdy waffles...)
-Some after-studies from the Krupa Troopa piece.
-Part of an idea page. Didn't everybody play with Nerf bats and paper ninja stars when they were in grade school?
-Kind of a treatment for a story idea. I like doing these kind of pages: They help w/ creating story points and w/ the pacing during certain moments, all in a condensed format (meaning that this isn't like committing to a finished comic page, nor does it have to be sequential in a storyboard sense). Plus, procrastination and all...
Colerase, post-it notes, copy paper, etc.
