Here's some quick sketches I did when I had a few minutes between appointments this week. These are both character concepts for my next project. They are real rough. I did them with a ball point pen on a legal pad. Let me know what you think. Take care.

eventually I'll have some time to post a few colored pics.

Rough Sketches

I've been pretty busy between work, family and finishing the last page of Rocco and Joey so I haven't had much time to draw lately. I try to find time to doodle whenever I can. (I actually did these while I was on a teleconference)

These sketches are a good example of how I develop most of my characters. I did them on a standard legal pad with a ball point pen. They are real scratchy since I can't erase. I have to work the mistakes into the picture.

Any free second I get (which isn't much) I try to doodle or work on my stories. Since I spend a lot of time in the car for work I use the window time to fine tune the stories in my head before I put them on paper. This usually leads to a mental image of a character that I try to sketch later in the day.

The first pic is Og, one of my favorite characters for my next project. You might have noticed him in some of my earlier posts. Hope you like them, let me know what you think. Take care.
