This is a greatest hits of sorts. My favorites from the last few weeks of sketching.

Godless Pages

Here are pages 7 and 8. Only 2 more to finish drawing and then a few more to color before we send it off to publishers.

Sketch Time

These are some quick sketches I did, no pencil drawing underneath, just starting with a thin Micron and then using bigger pens and brush pens. A few I toned using Copic grey markers.

These are more quick ink sketches, the top 2 are toned pencil drawings made using 4B lead and a blending stump, then erasing with the Tuff Stuff eraser.

2 small panel drawings. The ninja one was a lot of fun trying to imply the sea below.

Very loose brush pen sketches and a toned samurai guy.

Mo Sketches

Here are some sketches that I finished recently. The Indian was rendering practice using the Pentel brush pen to do some fine hatching and feathering which I have all but abandoned as of late.

These 3 toned sketches were all done on the same sketchbook page, I just isolated then from the other junk. They were all done with no pencil under drawing, just went from a loose 005 Micron sketch to bigger Microns and then to brush pens and Copic grays. The 2 character on the end are from Godless and the middle guy is from a book I'm working writing now.

Collage Sketch

This is a sketch of a book I have planned down the road. I am still finalizing the sequence of events but I have the main themes and characters all planned out. This is one of the "panel" sketches, original size is probably 3.5" square.

More Godless Pages!

So I finally sat down and finished both the color for page 2 and the inks for page 6. I feel like getting up to page 10 all drawn and up to page 5 colored won't be a problem for the end of May. Looks like June will be submission time.This page was difficult since I had to draw horses and riders at all kinds of angles and I really wanted to give a sense of place with a wide open desert. Not to mention fitting 7 panels, lettering is going to be a challenge.
