Legion pic rough Take 2

So after doing the first rough, I thought it looked okay, but something still felt off. So I showed it to my partner in crime, Cory Carani and he suggested some layout arrangements, like moving the founders more center and kinda having Sensor bookend M'onel a bit. Also resized some other figures so the founders were more prominent. I think I'll go with this layout and hopefully get it done in short order seeing how the SDCC deadline for contributions to the souvenir book is April 25th.... BTW, this was drawn on the tablet at 72 dpi, so it's a little rough.

Ahhhh! It came from my sketchbook!

What do you do when you for get to bring your pencils to sketchnight and don't have one to borrow? Draw with a ball point pen. Interesting exercise. I've had to do this a couple times because of my brainfarts. Kinda like how it turned out, seeing how every line you put down is pretty much permanent. Unless you have white out. Which I didn't. Might drop some color in at some point.
Here's a work in progress for a Legion of Superheroes pin up that I'd like to get done for the San Diego Comic-con International souviner book this year. Might still mess around with the figures and composition. Of course the pin up will be of the our rebooted Legion, which seems to have been erased from the DCU now... >sniff< :(

Figure drawing flood....

Here are a bunch of drawings done over the last couple weeks for figure drawing studio. The medium is ebony pencil on newsprint. I'm trying to use the side of the pencil more for tonal work.

Look what I crapped out last night. Just messing around with the tablet again. Trying this whole "color" thing. Really. Is there a market for it? Enquiry minds want to know. This was done in Art Rage. I'll post something better. I swear.

Breaking in the tablet....

Finally saw that tablet PCs were getting to the point of surpassing my desktop so I went for one of the newest machines out there. The Toshiba M700. It's spiffy and a little buggy being new and all but it's got a touchscreen and pen, which is really nice. I bought ArtRage 2.5 for the measily $25 and am just starting to get used to drawing on this. It feels like a Cintiq, only way smaller, but the resolution's nice at 1280 by 800. Here's a quick drawing I did in Art Rage at sketchnight.
