Here's a couple of digital sketches I did a while back at work during the slow time at work. Sometimes I'll bust out the digital sketches during lunch or on breaks and things. I haven't done it in a while just because I've been working on my handskills and brushwork, but I do enjoy the really quick (5 min. if that), spontaneous digital sketches.

Ok, so as mentioned in the previous post, I met this writer dude at Heros Con in Charlotte, NC 2 years ago who had this comic he was working on and (for some odd reason) saw enough potential and style in me to ask if I wanted in. It's a very socio-political book that deals with what issues of the corporate elite completely taking control over the major metropolitan work force. It also has zombies in it (guess what made me jump onto it). Here are some of the inked scans of the ashcan we did for the book. Several things have changed since this was put out, including the look of the zombies, the style of art, and general plot stuff. You'll see these visual changes as I update with more recent sketches for the book. I'll also be putting up a few of the colored pages. I can tell you that the color will be less abstract than it is in the ashcan, but I was experimenting with some techniques and color combos. Some were pretty successful, but there's always room for improvement.

Welp, as promised, here is the 1st of the many thing I need to upload to this supposed art blot. These are some character concept sketches for a "Stinkfist", which is a book I'm working on with Steven Prouse of 803 Studios. OH YEA! I forgot. In the 2 years since updating this thing, I've become a part of an indy comic studio in Columbia. We don't have a space to work or anything like that. We just meet, got to shows together, do books together, and try to use our different skill sets to get each out and published. Steven found me at Heros Con '08. I had just graduated and was peddling my portfolio around. He said my style would work for this book he was doing. The premise grabbed my interest immediately.
Anyways.....yea, here are quick character sketches for that book. I hate that I have to post these (and most of the other stuff I'll be putting up) because my skill and style have changed significantly since these were done. But, I do like process, so I want to show my evolution from complete crappy artist to slightly lest crappy artist. Enjoy.

Oh man...so it's been like 2 years since I posted something. For ANYBODY who has actually looked me up on this blog, I am really sorry for the lack of updates. I lost access to this blog and tried to start another, but then I didn't want to try and switch URLs...yea, it was a whole big thing. Anyways, I just got back into the account a little while ago, so there will be a massive upload in the coming days of things I've been working on since I last posted. More comic work, freelance stuff, personal work. And, I'm gonna try and make myself post up a sketch page a day. This will keep me on my toes, and just help fill out the blog. Hopefully I won't fall behind, but knowing me...it's inevitable.
