Sketch Charlotte doodles...

Haven't had much time to draw as of late, but here are a few sketches/doodles I've done at the last few Sketch Charlotte meetings (
I usually talk more than I draw at these meetings, and I'm a bit ADD so I bounce from idea to idea. Translation: a lot of my stuff I do at these meetings ends up in the trash! I find I work much better when I'm not surrounded by super-talented, interesting people...less distractions and I know all my stories! ;) It is inspiring to have such a talented roster, so I can't complain too much!

I have a few things I'm working on at the moment, so hopefully I'll have a few new pieces to share....until next time! :)

Sketchercise #3 - Hellboy Universe: Professor Trevor Bruttenholm

My first take on this theme was Lobster Johnson, but I struggled with his goggles on separate occasions. That slowed my progress to a halt. So the other night I was considering other options, when the good Professor jumped out at me!
I wasn't sure how to illustrate his white hair & beard using just black & white so I just outlined it! I had a happy accident while inking the outline. My Prismacolor .01 pen tip split which gave me some really cool textures. I couldn't have done that with a normal pen if I tried!
