Story Sketches Dump by The-Ez Story Sketches Dump by The-Ez
Just the last of the 2012 batch. :meow: Only the top two were drawn in 2013—this week, in fact! :D Might be the last sketch post for a good while. Lectures start for me again tomorrow, which is my cue to get back into the campus library and continue with my research about Victorian era stuff. :B Don't worry, though. I enjoy it! :D

RIGHT! :D So here we got some story sketches and concepts. I like to try out ideas in a visual format. If it looks cool on paper, that's a good indication that I should write it into the story. :nod: DO NOT QUESTION MY LOGIC, MORTAL!!! :la: :XD: ;P

I dunno if I'm allowed to say this as the artist, but I'm absolutely NUTS about the group picture of the grave-robbing guys with their shovels!! :iconashloveitplz: It was so super fun drawing each character's reaction to the prospect of desecrating a grave! :D Gangfield actually has the cheek to try and look dashing! :giggle: Love how it turned out!! :heart: (Seriously, am I allowed to say that? :XD:)

Will pop in my Scraps later. :D

I like the pic of Ruth and Byron! I like Byron's design...he's big and bulky, but he still seems warm and friendly. I like that he's a big dude but he's got that kinda...insecure expression on his face. And Ruth looks SOOO pretty in that pic. Her smile shines through, even in profile like that. : )

And then the pic of her, hunched up crying in the bed... ;__; You do such a good job of conveying the mood and emotions of a scene. Poor Miss Ruth!

Then there's the boys! Their expressions are SO. MUCH. FUN. Like you said, it's awesome to see each of their reactions to grave-robbing. XD I love how Theodore is TERRIFIED, and I love Adam's excited, determined look even more. And Dennis! He's super excited! XD And then there's Gangfield...*sigh* XD He's such a drama queen, striking a pose and trying to look all awesome and manly. And with the pipe, no less. The pipe cracks me up because he's trying to look so dashing, but he doesn't have enough hair on his chest to pull the pipe off. XD

I think what I like about that pic of the boys is their EYES. They're eyes are so alive. Adam is usually so bored and unexcited, but he's got a spark in his eyes here that brings him to life. And Theodore's eyes are about to pop out of his head! XD And then Gangfield is all like, "ha-HA! I'm Zap Brannigan!" or something. XDD But yeah, I love that pic. :3

Truth be told, the pic of Gangfield with his book open succeeds at actually looking dashing much better. XD Mostly because he looks less over the top, and more serious and focused. The one step up pose and a fluttering cape doesn't hurt, either. XP

The one of blind Gangfield(?) is a great sketch. You can really feel how much slower he's moving, how much more wary and tentative he is to move forward and take a step. That pic, like the sad Ruth one, feels "quieter," more somber. I like that about your art, how when there's a serious, dramatic scene, the mood feels like it's slowed down so you can really breathe it in and feel it.

Awesome sketches! :+fav:

Yeah, there are a lot of pics in this dump I'd LOVE to redraw now that I've improved a little. The characters seem a little inexpressive now that I've been practising drawing expressions. :giggle:

And I definitely wanna draw Byron even BIGGER! The way I describe him in the text is actually that he's comically big, and what better way to show comical bigness than in a CARTOON DRAWING? ;P

Thanks so much for everything!!! :glomp: :heart:
