i'm working on the different ways to get his differing age across at different points by making small variations in face shape and structure

Sketch-A-Day 180

This is Danny Garrety before he gets his mask and hat and really before he even considers himself a super hero. At this point in his career he's just out for some good old fashioned vengeance.

He's supposed to look young but i think the head is still too big (making him look too young). But who knows

Sketch-A-Day 178

a double-fecta of 90's goodness...a big collared jacket AND rolled up sleeves

Sketch-A-Day 177

the arm's way out of proportion...hopefully i'll go back and fix it later

Sketch-A-Day 176

This expresses how i've been feeling lately (creatively speaking). I'm in a bit of a funk and trying to dig my way out of it.

Sketch-A-Day 175

random drawing playing with facial shadows

Sketch-A-Day 174

finally some colors to round out the idea. I haven't added any shadow tones yet because i've been re-thinking the shading lines on the feet. originally i had planned on a gradient fill from the rock through the pants.

As you can see, during the color stage, is when I usually play with some of the extra elements that I may have drawn off to the side.

Sketch-A-Day 173

Now here's all the cheating!

I'll usually go in digitally and futz around with whatever I don't like or all the different bad decisions that a drawing will pick up along the way. I've been saving a lot of my fills to be done digitally too. It allows me to balance the composition a bit better.

Some elements added in, others taken out to land on the final "inks."

Sketch-A-Day 172

okay, so here are the raw inks with all the blemishes and fuck ups before I've fixed them. I'll usually draw out all kinds of other shit off to the side, that I'll fuck with digitally to see if something else works better....almost like a fancy paper doll.

Sketch-A-Day 171

okay, I'm finally gonna do one of those process pieces up right. Here's some pencil scribbles (or a sketch as it's called in the biz). I'll jump in with some brush pen tomorrow.

Happy Mother Fucker's Day!

Sketch-A-Day 170

I really like this one (even though he looks too well built). It's a trick of the trench coat that over broadens his shoulders...but again, I still really like it. I've been having a buncha fun scribbling in definition and shadow with the brush pen and chisel.

Sketch-A-Day 166

an undead leprechaun...he's a very important character, down the road, for Bulletproof Beetle. I was trying to nail rotting flesh on skeleton heads and everything kept coming out looking like Emperor Zombie.

Sketch-A-Day 162

okay, so i'll be up in the sticks for a few internet service. I was able to keep up with the daily posts during the Con 'cause I was still within civilization. I don't know if the place i'm headed has even HEARD of the internet.

I'll still do a sketch each day, I just won't post it until we get back
