4-Pack

A few fun poses from the sketchbook.

Making good progress on Chapter 2. I set a big task for myself since the first page of Ch. 2 was way longer than normal and had both action & ornate brushwork in it. Even though I’m well into the later pages now, looking back I can see I had quite a bottleneck there. It’ll be worth it for opening on a strong note, though!

Brannet Concepts

More variations on these characters I previewed last week. In context, they’ll do some graphic stylized shapes more like the concepts here, rather than the loose elaborate look of last week’s drawing. (Consider that one fancier for dramatic effect.) In any case, I’ve enjoyed toying with some different options and approaches for these guys!
The more I work with them, the more I hit upon shapes and elements that better suit their personalities.

I’m usually reluctant to share sketchbook stuff and WIP concept art, but I’m trying to loosen up more about that! Especially when I enjoy the process & characters so much.

In other news, I have my hands full as I’m getting into a new line of work. Feeling positive about it though; these changes should hopefully put my life on a more even keel. And that’ll mean sorting out a lot of things I’ve been looking forward to.

Peace and good health to all of you!

Brannet

A mysterious trio! Who are these hat-and-poncho-clad strangers? Time will tell when they enter our story… (It’ll be in Chapter Three.)

Phew, finally an update & a new teaser image for you all!
Ol’ Fowlfish went through a recovery from some bad health these past couple weeks. Not a fun time, but starting a regimen to boost my health has led me to some good habits that oughta serve me well on life’s journey. More resources at your disposal means you can be more flexible when life gets stormy.

Anyhow, I’m enjoying working on the new material and I’ll be excited to share it when it’s ready! I’ve made progress on writing for a later project too, so it’s been very rewarding to work on all this.
Peace be with all a’ you!
