Roughs

OK. Here's how I'll approach a lot of my assignments when I'm not joyously blasting away in my sketchbook. Very tight thumbnails.
Theses are actual size. It's a great way to knock out a lot of problems quickly and I often blow them up and ink 'em on a lightbox licketty-split. A lot of my "Tales from the Crypt" covers are done this way. If I stay focused and keep at it, I generally can move a full-color cover outta here overnight. I mean...err...That's a lie! This stuff takes me a real long time!...er...Damn you blog!!!! Seriously, being at it for 40 years I guess you do develop a bit of speed when needed. Too bad I can't keep up a level of production like this for a long time. I feel like I'm gonna have a nervous breakdown after a while. Drawing, drawing, Drawing...Phooey! Man I wanna walk around in the woods everyonce in a while. See a dinky bird or something.

  1. I know your pain, well on a small scale, like a paper cut to a broken arm, not the amount, but know that it's an amount that's not fun. The roughs for the first book looks great and is that the XJ9eR?!
