In between designs and work I still like to bust a decent sketch out to stay fresh.  My phone's camera added a weird effect in the corner that I for some reason like.  This is an old school character, and back in the day his creator, Jim Lee, was my biggest inspiration.  I really don't remember ever drawing him before.  Also, I saw a really crappy drawing of him I hated, so...

I'm still playing around with designs for this character, and when I like one I draw it for real to see how hard it's going to be to draw over and over.  This is a pose that's always been hard for me, so no reason to shy away from it, right?  I'm collaborating with another artist on the design, my fellow Ronin in crime The Liquid Lead.  It's tight to see how we're contrasting running with the ideas, and it'll be nice to see the amalgamation that comes from it.

The character is an ex-samurai out for revenge, so I wanted to throw some samurai gear on him to stress that, but I wanted him to look mobile too, and not weighed down by a full armor. And of course the hood, that's staying for sure.  I'm hoping to bring a lot of updates about the process I'll be going through while illustrating this, maybe we'll see some improvement together.

Just Flowing...

Wudup interwebz?!  I had a busy weekend, chilling out with the FreestyleRonin crew at Richmond Comix in Richmond, VA.  We were invited to join a show for local artists of the comic variety to connect, network, and showcase some of our stuff.  A good time was had, and I'm looking forward to doing it again.  I also found some renewed inspiration, and I want to do more than just doodle in a pad all the time.  I've got a really good project to work on, and this picture is just the beginning.  I'm still playing around with designs, and I know this won't be the final, but it feels damn good to start.  Definitely more on this to come...

These are some designs for a future comic I have the privilege of drawing.  Character design has never been my strong suit, I see my stuff as being too generic for the most part.  I'm trying to go all out with these though, so there will definitely be more and better coming!
