STEEL CITY, VEILED KINGDOM manuscript art challenge – Institute Lobby


Sharpie sketch of like a skyscraper lobby full of cafe tables oh and also there is a sketch of a rabbit on a teleporter up aboveAbout This Project: The rough draft of STEEL CITY, VEILED KINGDOM came out to over 800 pages of paper. I finished the pencil edits eons ago, but since it felt wasteful to toss out all the reams, I’ve given myself a challenge: I’m going to draw my novel (kinda sorta). Whatever’s happening on the printed side gets drawn on the other side–action, characters, or scenery.
This shot: a rabbit teleportation demonstration, and some environment practice of the lobby where the main char escapes to (yeah the rabbit demo didn’t go over so well).

Church Sketches – Moustache Man


Moustache Man Portrait Charge/Caricature

Finished scanning my grey sketchbook!! Posting pages out of order.
Comic artist Dirk Grundy reminded me in a recent post that caricature is an important skill, too! So instead of aiming for +++ accuracy (like the upper left image), I thought I’d try messing with proportions (like the lower left drawing!). OK, so it’s more like a “portrait charge” (French, look it up) than a hardcore caricature, but still!
