Knight in Shining Space Armor

This is a re-envisioning of a sketch I did almost exactly three years ago.

It's fun to go back and revisit old ideas with a fresh perspective.

For comparison, I'm including the old sketch - kept the character designs overall, but changed pretty much everything else

Further Grayscale Studies

Did some more quick grayscale studies, just trying to get the feel for the media - in this case, Copic toner markers, and how they behave and look on standard comic book paper (BlueLine Pro 3-ply board).

Very quick sketches with even quicker gray tones. It's been a long time since I've worked with non-computer media other than black ink, so still have a lot to re-learn (that "Undo" feature doesn't work very well outside of Photoshop).

Grayscale Study

A quick study I did to get a feel for light sources and composition. Tentatively titled "Dejah Alone."

The image is that of Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars (from the Burroughs series of books), during the 10-year period that John Carter was back on Earth.

Beauty and the Beast

I had originally come up with these characters when I was still in high school.

Now, I finally decided to dust them off and see how I would interpret them in my current style. Overall I'm pretty happy with the result, though I don't know if I'm ready to do anything more with these two.

Then again, a non-emo forbidden love story might be a breath of fresh air in this day and age **cough**Twilight**cough**
