Cop Story Sketches 13

So here are some sketches I did during my vacation. The nature around was inspiring though let me tell you, I've never seen this many mosquitoes in one place before.

Here we have:
Chance feeling blue (he feels most at home when he's busy solving crimes)
Fisher, Ghost Copper and Wynne - Ghost Copper is like a cat and likes to squeeze in next to people to feel the warmth
Troy catching wildlife
Steve's hallucinations
Russell on vacation
Gage Law
Russell again
and Chance and Troy

I think I figured out something about colouring backgrounds here. Now gotta try applying it in comics!

        Are you a professional animator or illustrator?

        • Link

          Yup, a professional illustrator (as in, with a degree and working in the field). I'd like to work in animation industry someday but I don't have much interest in actual animating, I'm more into concept art, comics and such.

            Nice, good luck to you. I'd like to work in comics one day myself, currently I'm in college for animation.

              Thanks! I was considering studying animation - basic principles are the same when you study animation and illustration but I feel that animators generally get training that's more applicable in the real world (most of my teachers were into fine arts and didn't give a damn about digital art). But there wasn't a lot of options for me at the time and anyway, it's nice to have some degree behind the belt. I love comics, I do comics for work from time to time and I have my own webcomic but it's a weird industry.

                I noticed that, I'm more into traditional art and while I love cartoons and comics, I have fine art influences too and I lean towards that stuff in the sense that I like to do work that's challenging and not quite commercial, so it hasn't been the best match adapting what I like to do for the animation industry. I'm kind of torn between learning to do what I want to do as an artist and just learning what I need to do to be able to work in the industry and have a steady career.

                  I know that feeling! If you want my opinion I'd say do both - try to learn as much as you can while staying true to what you like in art. It's easier if you draw in a "popular" style but if you're qualified enough you'll find jobs no matter of your stylistic preferences. Besides I don't think there's such a thing as a steady career in art anyway these days unless you're lucky.

    I love the way you use color! It makes me miss working with traditional media.

      Thank you! :) I miss it too, between work and comics I don't get to do it much now. I keep meaning to find time for daily sketches or something of this sort, especially since there's a ton of concept art I need to do.

    I love this set of drawings- not only is it rare to find someone drawing cartoony people, but traditional media? Right on. Oozing with character, too!

      Thank you! I'm doing less traditional stuff now because I never seem to have enough time for random sketches but I've been making an effort to find time for that lately so... more to come! :D
