So, I know these drawings don't exactly fit in with the theme this week for Illustration Friday, but I thought that it would help me dive in to one of my next projects. I've decided my illustration portfolio needs a little beefing up, so I'm planning a series of illustrations based on the show 'Lost.' These are the first character sketches (from top: Jack, Kate, and Locke), which is something I usually do before doing the final artwork.
Are they perfect? By no means, I did them over an hour one night. But they do help me get a sense of the character's features, and how I can simplify or emphasize those features for my own rendition. I'll show more sketches and the final works as they progress, for those interested.
Also, I drew these on some old, OLD sketch paper, hence the golden-magenta tone (although I think the magenta came from the scan).
