Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 250 minutes
The girl with the shock of white hair checks her watch again...
PERELIA QUINN fidgets, waiting for her mark. Capella Block’s residents rush around her, snaking between stacks of garbage and freestanding utility pylons. Craning her neck she can see the wide mouth of the West vehicle entrance. A single-carry takes the corner too fast, it’s rimless wheels chirping across the pavement. It slams to a stop in front of a noodle-shop, and the driver tumbles out into the street. Pretending to yawn, PERELIA raises a wired microphone to her lips, concealed neatly in her palm.
He’s back. He’s had more to drink.
You don’t say? How’s that poor bastard even standing?
The man in the street turns sharply and tumbles over his own feet. Falling to his knees he lets out a viscous curse before lurching upright again.
He’s not, really. What do you want me to do?
Sober him up. The quick way.
I drew this late last year and am only now getting around to coloring it. I labored over what to do with the gizmo behind him; I’m still thinking about going in and fleshing out the details of that structure a bit more. Right now it sort of looks like it has googly-eyes. Why the near-monotone green? It was St. Patrick’s Day. Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 200 minutes
Charming little fellow. ~ 70 minutes. Here’s the written description I based him off of;
- an obese everchild
- never grows older in appearance
- mostly concerned with food
- wears cloths that are much too large / long, that flow off him like regal robes
- mouth stained
- madness shining in his eyes: “That’s not a child…”
- sleeps in a refuse ‘fort’
This gentleman is a cook. Though those marks on his arm are supposed to be scars, I think I’ve stumbled across a good way to render arm-veins as well. ~ 60 minutes
I’m transitioning my daily sketch work from random practice to actual character development for a sci fi story I’m developing. I started out by writing a brief description of the character at the top of the page in gray marker (making it barely visible here), then drew an outline of the figure in gray marker (Prismacolor 30% cool gray), THEN a rough pencil sketch, THEN the actual inks. ~ 70 minutes
Character development for a project I’m calling Carter Electric. More updates to come on this topic.
