I had another art jam with some of my buddies and this session's focus was western. I started out drawing some regular cowboy heads but wasn't really feeling it creatively. It wasn't until I did this doodle of a cactus playin' cowboy that I really started to have fun with it. I ended up with a lizard and a vulture all donning some cowboy attire. I think I'll play around with these character designs more and really nail a design I like with them. I can see them all playing a part of a larger world...hey maybe I got a wild west kind of book in me. There's a story here...I feel it.
Some really great ideas came from this past Sunday's meet. We discussed about what to do with these doodles and really set some goals for what we want to achieve and evolve as artists and storytellers. So let's hope we can build up some momentum out of these beta sessions and really produce something unique.

I bought a new sketchbook and have been using Uni-Ball pens to doodle recently. I'm digging how the ink flows with this pen and will probably be sketching more with these. I also plan on carrying this book with me most places just to keep myself constantly sketching.
I'm thinking of doing some con sketches this way. I can whip these up pretty quick and maybe tackle more requests. Let me know what you think!

Here's some 5x17s I did not to long ago in water color and ink brush. They were a lot of fun to do and I feel like I'm getting better at adapting my style to this new medium. It makes for some really playful results. These two characters were commissions for someone's nephew. I really like how they turned out and hopefully the kid will dig'em.
