Sketching Again...

After the all-colour blow out of the last post, I though I'd put up something that I prefer - sketches. I don't mind doing full-blown inked and colured stuff, but I find that I tend to kill the drawing in doing so; my real strength lies in loose, quick drawings, that capture some kind of energy and immediacy. Well, I think that's the case anyway.

This one was done when I was at Imagimax in Thailand. They wanted us to do some concept art, taking a set of characters from Thai mythology and redesign them for a video game. This is one of the sketches I did of a Garuda.

This next one is just a sketch of a character I've been drawing on and off for a couple of years, and which I'm still trying to develop. This one's okay, but I think I'd prefer a looser, more 'cartoony' style.

What do you think?
