Story sketch...
Here is another rough story sketch from the idea I've been playing with. Those of you who have been following along have seen several different versions of the boy. I was going to paint it up in Photoshop but then decided to leave it as is. I just don't think I'm ready to put a final line or add colour to this one. Love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks Martin...It's been fun watching the designs change over time.

Thanks Dave...That's why I didn't want to paint it just yet...I'm happy with the feelings I'm getting from it.

Thanks Kyle, Appreciate your comments!

hey kev,

even though it is not the focus of the drawing, I love the tree on the right hand side. I know it probably took you all of 15 seconds, but it has a lot of character. I'd like to see these characters is a wooded area surrounded with all sorts of knobby trees like that!

Hi Kevin!

I think your design of the little boy is very nice! I like it alot coz he's got a really different look..very nice style. Yeah to see it colored in photoshop would be cool too, but I just love the charm of your sketches!

Thank you for your kind words too! Its very motivating.
