Drawing-a-Day — Fortnight!

Today’s sketch marks two whole weeks I have been doing this. Sometimes I’ve only gotten a sketch in before midnight by the skin of my teeth, but I’ve done it, so I’m feeling pretty satisfied.

I’ve been trying to post more finished drawings, but I spent a lot of time today on a sketch for the first page of the graphic novel I’m working on. This is a rough sketch that I’m using to work out the composition and a few of the details; I’ll probably refine this again with a tracing on the light table, then transfer it to the watercolour paper I’m planning to use for the finished drawings.

The opening page in the story is a forest fire, with animals fleeing. There will be a lot of stark silhouette against bright oranges and reds in this scene — for now I'm just working out the placement of the animals and their outlines. Next comes a value sketch.

    • Thanks! As for the critters, none of them are main characters except one, and she definitely does (but I’ll say the others do too, even though we don’t see them again). This page is more of a prologue to the main story.
