Halt Frog!

These sketches are some more character studies. I really just like to spend a while, before I embark on illustrations for my stories, drawing the main characters in different poses and interactions. I know that these silhouettes are not super strong, but I do like the drawings. after the first one though, I decided that Stevie here needed a fanny pack to place all the proceeds from his fundraising endeavors. Oh, and "Happy belated Easter" to everybody. I hope you had a great holiday filled with family and friends.

Finally Something New!

Because my first ebook is coming to a close, at least in terms of the illustration part, I felt like I would go ahead and draw out some of the characters from my next ebook. This one I plan on sketching everything by hand, and maintaining a large portion of the line work created by this traditional approach, and then just painting behind the line work. I feel like this will produce a better end result, and save a LOT of time, not having to worry about precisely planning every single edge, and what not. I am really pumped about the sketches, and the story in general, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
