Sketching in the NYC

So I was in New York earlier this month helping sell a "Major Ocean Picture" to the DVD buyers of the world and I decided that since I wasn't going with the family it would be the perfect opportunity to sketch my ass off. I was inspired by my pal Mark Kennedy's blog about sketching Part I and Part II. I always hated toting around a big sketchbook and his posts pointed me toward a small moleskin sketchbook. My first one! Woo hoo!! I got the small, pocket-sized one and put it in my back pocket. I soon found out that you really need to schedule time to sketch. I was only there for four days and most of that was spent running around getting ready for the presentation. I really thought I would fill out that little thing pretty fast but I ended up with it only half done. Here's a few of the better ones.

It's been a long time...

...Since I've posted here. I've been busy busy busy on the movie I was working on, and then suddenly the movie was put on hold. So with a few days free, I decided to come back here with a fresh, half-ass Searle rip-off drawing.
The idea was, I was thinking of the inhabitants of a small, medieval village. There were the serfs, and lords and various different members of any small village. I decided to start with a local bishop of the church. I will try to do more in the coming weeks. The thing is, I'm starting a new project this week, so we'll see how it goes. Anyway, it feels good to just get something up here in the meantime, even though I'm not really not very happy with the color. I really need a new Mac. Painter is really starting to run slowly on the old Mac now. Time for a new Mac Pro. (Oh sweet money, come to daddy!) I got frustrated with the slowness of the watercolor brush in Painter, so I started to get sloppy.

More Cavemen

More sketches for the new strip. I modeled one of them loosely on good pal Sony Story Artist Kaan Kaylon.
Guess which one?
