Ok, so I wanted to some cheesy christmas drawing for my last blog before the holidays but work has kept me too busy to do anything. I'm leaving town tonight and thought I would throw up one last doodle until after Xmas.
I've been experimenting alot lately with styles. Well, maybe not styles exactly, but more ways to approach the finish of a piece or a drawing. I'm writing and drawing a Frankenstein story for Marvel, and want to give it a loose, rough looking feel. So, this is little study in the style of line. It's not there yet, but for some reason I really love the energy of this kind of line. It's drastically different from my animated type line, but that's good. I like to switch it up, and not get to dug into one thing. I like be able to apply different styles to different stories, and will be doing so alot more in the future. I also have been experimenting with black and white alot lately. I'm starting work on my own graphic novel, and may attempt to do a black and white pass at it. Not sure yet, and have some time before I get there.
So, this one is small, but in a way a big step to somewhere in the coming weeks. I'll keep you updated on the progress of the tests.
