I unplugged my computer for about a week. It was nice. So these sketch pages are done on actual 8x11 pieces of paper. I even used an actual pencil for the first one!
This next one I revert to my more comfortable tool: a ballpoint pen. The drawing is a redesign of Matthias Malone. Mainly just a new hat. Still working on it.
That other hat was too hard to draw from various angles. There's just something about those darn Indiana Jones style hats! I remember when I first went to Vanarts for the month-long intensive, way back in '06, I asked Gerard how to draw a decent looking hat. But even he had trouble giving me an example.
