I got a book on owls...

And I drew the owl on the cover! This was my warm-up sketch from last night. I love owls! I started it in ballpoint pen, as I tend to, and then fleshed it out with a black prismacolour pencil. I wish I'd had a stick of it instead of just my pencil, but the rest of my supplies were somewhere else and I like the way it turned out, regardless.

A warm up sketch and a surprise!

Warm-up sketch from the other day. Nobody bounces like little goats, man!

AANND here's a preview of the next page of Fantastic Journey! Building up a nice buffer before I start posting finished pages again, which is going to be this winter. But in the meantime, here's the shading breakdown of the next page (remember, the character was last seen approaching a forest):

It took quite a few tries before I figured out a composition I was happy with for this page-- but I'm so glad I did. This is a MILLION TIMES BETTER than what I was going to go with originally! I have so many thumbnails, which you'd probably never guess considering this is a single-panel page, lol.

Something from my sketchbook last night-- a refinement of a monster that will show up in Fantastic Journey, based on an earlier sketch.
