Divin' into the old sketchbook!

Whelp, it's been a few days since I've been able to post anything, namely because my computer caught the petulant child virus and stopped obeying my commands! At least with kids you can spank 'em, or slap 'em upside the head...if I did that with a computer, I'd just hurt myself. Anyway, I've been granted permission to use the roomies comp, so I hooked up for the scanner, installed adobe, and got to scannin' a few things.

This first sketch is right outta the ole highly neglected sketchbook. It's of my favorite G.I. Joe, Gung-Ho! As a kid, and even now as an adult, I have an affinity for straight-up badasses, and Gung-Ho may very well be the first badass I ever actively rooted for. Well, him and Mr. T. Anyway, I had a crapload of fun drawing this, and I look forward to inking and coloring it at some point for a G.I. Joe jam a buddy of mine is doing. Can't wait!

Here's another sketchbook sketch I did recently of everyone's favorite superchick with the super mammaries...Wonder Woman! Ain't drawn here in a long while, and I gotta say, I can totally see myself turning the proverbial corner when it comes to drawing females. I'm still learning, but I think I've finally figured it out...and it only took 29 and a half years!

This last one here is of a character whose become somewhat of a recent favorite of mine, Guy Gardner. I remember being asked to draw this dude about a year ago for one of those 10 Free Sketch things that I never completed. Well, long overdue, here's my first ever attempt at him. I plan on drawing him again soon, as I think this pose isn't dynamic enough, but it was fun to practice trying to convey attitude, as well as working on folds in fabric as seen on his jacket. Oh, and for Guy Gardner purists, I just realized that I have him wearing a Green Lantern ring, and not the yellow ring he oughta be wearing in this incarnation...I promise not to make that mistake again.

It's been a fun couple days, even without the net. I've got a bucketload of sketches yet to scan in, but this is all I can show for today. Hope everyone digs 'em.

Take nothing for granted!
