Installment 25: September to December 18, 2009
Final exams are over. Time for recovery...
These are some of the sketches and component studies I've done in the past few months, within class and whenever I had a little free time.
I've become re-attached to Rapidograph technical pens despite their high maintenance requirements. The consistent lines they can produce and the "fast" feeling are simply astounding, especially with the smallest tips. It's been a lot of fun experimenting with loose and tight methods; perhaps there's a middle ground where I can finally settle upon...
And oh yes, I really like the Five Star Stories
manga series--particularly their Mortar Headd
designs! Take a look at them; maybe you'll find some inspiration from Mamoru Nagano's chivalrous universe too.
