Technically, these aren’t from my sketchbook. They’re from my clipboard. I’m finding it easier to do layouts on loose sheets of paper than in a sketchbook. This is also an example of sketching from life and applying it to the super zeroes character designs. For instance, the second sheet, was from my lunch break today. I was noticing how the birds under the truck were total sillhouttes and seemed to be part of the shadow. Also, the way that the girl in the corner of the restaurant sat with her arms and legs all gangly. The frumpy kid with the sloth walk too was something. Most of these are memory sketches. I’ll take pictures in my head and walk away to draw them when I get back to the studio. Its very helpful practice.
The top sheet, by the way are sketches for today’s strip over at www.Superzeroes.net if you would like to catch a glimpse into my process.
