Pencil Sketchdump

Ever since finishing this comic, I've felt completely stuck with my art. Nothing's been looking good or natural for a while. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try some things to change that. First, away with the mechanical pencil. Second, sketching faster, focusing less on the details and paying more attention to poses and expressions. I think it's doing me some good, I feel better about these sketches than anything I've managed to draw in the past three months. Should've ditched the mechanical pencil years ago.

I'm starting art lessons again in a couple of weeks, looking forward to that!

I saw Rocky the Musical in Hamburg and, really, it's among my top ten best theatrical experiences ever. I wrote about it in my musical blog.

Nice sketchdump-!  I've been on such a long art hiatus, myself... I know the feeling, when everything recent just doesn't seem natural or 'right.'  But this is lively and cute and I love your style, as always.  Their faces!  That Jekyll with his hands up, all creepy-intent on his explanation.  Bwahaha!
