Did some more work on this; added the title, lightened the lines on the earlier figures to help suggest the passage of time, added shadows to the latest to help underline his position in time, edited the trees (sometimes nature's wrong). This is better. Now for page 2 because I do these things in such a bad order.

Some work in progress images of stuff for the next short story I'm working on. My pencils are fairly tight but I like to think of inking as a sort of final edit. Inks shouldn't be exactly the same as the pencils, some problems should be left to be solved in inks or it's just repetition and thus, boring. One of my recurring problems is that I cannot place figures on the page which results in things like the last sketch having feet that are cut off. Oh, well. Can and will be fixed. AS much as I've loved my brush, the crowquill is just SO wonderful. I'll probably still use the brush but this style is in my head right now.
EDIT: Here's the inked version of the last sketch, now with feet.

A few things; first are two sheets of sketches, just me making variations on a fox character. The inked version is just me, the pencil is me looking through my Nickelodeon book and using their styles to play with. I think it's good to try and get out of my own head, to see how there might be other ways to approach a problem or a character. I'm always hoping to push myself into something better.
The last one is the update from the previous entry. I changed the species, made him a fox and colored it. That one's just a warmup.

Afternoon warmup sketch. I think I have another short comic story in mind, this time not for anyone or anything in particular. So I'm doing mood pieces on pub tran as that's where it will take place. More detail means more time but that's ok as I don't have an editor in this case.
