Now, I've done more detailed sketchy styles digitally, but those take a lot of references and a lot of time- so what I've been trying to accomplish with the occasional sketching time I've had is figuring out a less realistic, more illustrative style that is easyish for me to draw on a whim and I think I'm starting to figure it out.
These sketches are all from scenes from, or are at least inspired by, the zombie apocalypse rp I have had going on for several years now. The rp group is on discord and its called UZA. If you're interested in checking out the rp feel free to follow the Discord Invite Link below. It'll take you to a welcome room in the server where you can read over the rules and take a small quiz to gain entry. Please keep in mind this server is 16+ age wise(would have been 18+ but it has a good international community and the age someone is considered a "minor" sometimes differs) due to violence, gore, and adult themes.
Anywho! From top left to top left and then downward similarly, here's a brief inscription of what's going on in these sketches...
1.) One of my Characters named Ray is taken by the Military Base plot we have going on due to her natural immunity to the virus. In that sketch she is strapped to a chair and being told off by one of the female scientists for being difficult during a procedure she's not exactly consenting to. Nira, the scientist, has something fucky going on with her arm, but I'm still working on foreshortening and anatomy.
2.) Character Al with his dog Precious looking down at the grave of his diseased daughter- grave not visible. I like this one in general; though he's a bit short and thin for his rp stature
3.) Teenage, drugged up teen Maddox bothering Ray(pre capture and head shaven) with probably annoying questions as they walk around the wasteland. I like this one
4.) Al sleeping with Precious in the grass; not huge on how his face turned out but oh well; I'm working on it.
5.) Younger Ray in her apartment with her cat "Kitty" and Chinese food watching the news in the weeks leading up to the fall of humanity from the growing zombie plague. Like how this one turned out in general, angle was a bit tough to work with
6.) Unrelated to the rp entirely, but moreso a part of Ray's lore. Her during her teenage years; yes she looks like a boy to some degree. That was deliberate on her part.
7.) Scene from the lab where one of the male scientists is actually being kind to Ray and bringing her food; which she's suspicious of. The scientist- Sahale- was included in another panel but I didn't like how he turned out in the drawing so left him out.

The kitty reminds me of my cat. Not with rice/chinese food but with beef jerky. I made the mistake of giving her a few crumbs when she was a kitten and she is OBSESSED now... I open a bag and she will come running from anywhere in the house. Then she will climb all over me and do her best to get my jerky... it is the ONLY food she does it with (luckily) but boy, it is nearly impossible to eat jerky in my house.
