YES it's not a clean sketch I know. Getting the proper
perspective like that was a completely new attempt for me though for a
first try the shoulders I did kinda well...
Again with the large mouth ( not as large as usual but still quite large for a head that size )
Aniara is a woman who can be beautiful and scary at the same time.
I think I'm finally getting out of this environment funk....
We'll have to see.
The hand perspective is done well as is the face.
Just another picture of Aniara taunting/beckoning/challenging whoever she happens to be looking at at the time.

OK to clarify NO HIS EAR IS NOT PIECRED ... my electric
eraser just ran out of eraser to get rid of that spot....
Drawing Kiren in the style i used for Mina was a challenge in and of
itself. Kiren is Mina's older brother and
despite Mina having that whole cat eye thing ( which though unrelated
to Kiren ... mina would have made a much better catwoman that Halle
Barry. ) Kiren has very similar eye shape and
features that Mina has... and it was quite difficult to draw that
without making him look too evil ( because he's not evil )
or too feminine. Despite the challenge I think I did fairly
So yeah ... Kiren.....

That right foort got cut off in the scanner.
It's quite sketchy but then again it was about 15-20 minutes to draw
this one and drawing a sitting person isn't as easy as a standing
Aniara with that vagina dentana thing going on again ( yes thats the
term used to describe the stylization of her mouth ) Shes got that
large evil grin that just works. Yes aniara is often
drawn scantily... She's evil and a vampire.... dont complain.
The shoulder decor just seems to get bigger and bigger....
Though she does have multiple outfits ( many of them take that webbed
look with holes but yes she has multiple. )

Another stylization of Mina. This one showing the enlargement of
the hands and feet. Despite being unshaded ( I
tried.. it just looked bad though once i did it ) its really not
bad. The left hand is just a litttle too small in comparison to
the right but still I'm not that picky. The torso is a
little long though and I need to continue to work on that.
It's not TOO bad but still needs just a little work.
Anyway yeah... MORE PICS

Another drawing stylized like Humberto Ramos. For those who
are comic artist illiterate, Humberto Ramos stylizes his
characters with large hands and feet. Not just the
men, women too. Despite this stylization his
characters still can look very pretty or handsome.
But yeah that is Kell looking all brooding and badass and heroic like he does. The tilt just adds to the effect.
Yay for me!

Without a doubt the best portrait of Mina I have ever
drawn. I stylized it in the fashion of Humberto Ramos
( A FANATASTIC artist who drew the panels for the comic series Crimson.
Even stylized Mina is just a beautiful woman. Her character is
also just amazing ( not just because shes drawn hot!) shes a very very
in depth character and probably my favorite.
Anyway ... yeah best drawing of her ever.

Hubbell... another 3:30 in the morning sketch......

Abud with wings....
Amazing what one can concieve at 3:30 in the morning....

rough draft of a work I plan on finishing this summer.
Kell on the right and Aniara on the left recreating a scene from their
epic battle 6 years prior to the events kell took part in in
Immersea, and about 600 years prior to the events in watcher saga
( since yes i do have characters cross over ).
Aniara is so much fun to draw.... I love stylizing her face
because she is one of those characters who can have a stylized face and
still look, right. Plus it is a common
technique to make women who are evil have large mouths ith big
teeth, and aniara is about as evil a woman I can think of.
Anyway just a work in progress..

Another reason to bless "Drawing Comics the Marvel Way" the poses i can get are so much more dynamic now.
