I’ve still got a massive backlog of sketches, so here’s just a few of them, kinda grouped by a category.
As usual, these are all done in a regular ball-point pen and often on scrap paper while I’m just waiting around or have a few spare moments. When I do them, I often just start with a shape and go from there. Sometimes its the shape of a human head, sometimes its the beak of a bird and so on. From there, I just let it all come out of the pen.
I’m a cartoonist at heart, and that’s what I draw. For that, I’m glad. I’d hate to have a sketchbook full of drab buildings or run-of-the-mill horse drawings. This way I always know something new is coming up even if I repeat a lot of themes.
Starting from the top left:
- A robot who’s stolen Wall-E’s head.
- An angry peasant who’s about to punch you out.
- In all orange we have another rather morose peasant.
- He’s beside another peasant who’s got on a fine pair of gloves.
- We have a follow-up to the hairy co-pilot from a few entries ago. This one? He’s the lumpy co-pilot!
- Then there’s the frumpy crusader.
- Then some tooneriffic animals in the form of a cat and dog.
- Then a pretty darn good dragon head.
- He’s next to an uppity eagle.
- Then there’s a savage dragon.
- Wrapping things up is a sort of lizardy dragon-man.
