LATE NIGHT SKETCHES



Some more late night sketches from the sketchbook. Again, using some big ol' brushes. 

Yeah, I know I didn't finish the hat. Honestly, I was done with it and moved on. Ha!

LANA DEL REY


It's been a loooonnnggg time.  Most of you know that I've been posting my work on my Deviant page as well as Twitter.  So, I'm going to playing catch up for bit.

Above is the final inks to the Lana Del Rey piece I did last week.  All done with brush on bristol.  The hair, by far, was the most enjoyable part.

MOOD



It's all about establishing a mood in this panel.  That's one of the most important things I've learned from studying Zaffino's artwork... sometimes it is more important to clearly establish a mood than to clearly see a character.  I thought this moment was a great opportunity to take advantage of that.

CORNERED


Here's two additional panels that take place in the rain. I was especially happy with the composition on the left panel and the lighting of the figure in the right panel. The lighting and rain really helped reinforce the mood that I thought would be appropriate for this scene. Tombstone is not the safest place to be right now...


HOLLIDAY will be released tomorrow!!!
