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

Wheee!

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:

Your style is awesome too! :love:

Haha! I'm really tempted to just leave you with your ideas, then! :D

Bottom left is a concept I'm working on where my character, Chester Gangfield is buried in a wall for a 100 years and has to be rehabilitated. I just drew him blind and useless with a nurse or summin'. :shrug: Still working out the kinks. :D

But I bet your writerly ideas are much better than my silly concept, though! :XD: So by all means, make of it what you want! :hug: :D

I'm quite tempted to use the ideas the picture gives me for the book I'm writing right now...Maybe I will! If I do, I will try and let you know what I do with it :D. I must say, I am developing a very serious crush on Chester Gangfield just by seeing your art, and I haven't even read the story yet because my computer doesn't support .pdf files (I'm new to macs...). He seems to have a super neat and original personality--love it!

YEAH!! :la: That's the first time I drew that Mr Byron guy. :B Still working on his design. Really wanna give him a moustache, but I'm on the fence about that. :XD: Either way, he's in the next chapter, so I better be able to draw him soon! :eager: HAHA! :XD:

And omigosh you really like Gangfield that much? :la: :blush: Thank you thank you thank you!! :XD: I'm constantly drawing him, so I'm always feeling like I'm overloading your guys with pics of him. ^^; I can't help it! He's just so much fun to draw!! :la:

And I've only very recently nailed Theodore's design, so expect more drawings of him soon!! :eager: :D

THANK YOU!!!!! :heart:

I love the dude in the top left corner with Ruth he seems like a great guy. But the dude on the bottom right corner seems like a creep.....is he the evil spirit who is holding Ruth hostage? Did Gangfield go blind for a while...Oh man no matter what you draw you always have a tale going on.

Haha yeah, guy top-left is such a decent looking guy! :XD: I really super wanna give him an awesome gentleman moustache, but it just makes it impossible to take him seriously!! :giggle: Aw, what the heck!!! :iconhappymoustacheplz:

And bottom-right man is like a base design for the ghost, but I'm slowly warming up to the ghost being female. Or maybe the ghost is the house itself. Or a collection of ghosts. :shrug: I dunno, what do you think would be cooler? :B

Oh! Well-spotted!! :D Gangfield was buried in an underground wall for 100 years and it took him some time to recover his senses. I really enjoy drawing him as a character, so I'm always thinking up story ideas for him! :D It really enriches the character for me, even if I never actually get to working on his actual backstory. :blush:

SERIOUSLY CAN I GET NOTHING PAST YOU?!?!? :la: :glomp: You're so observant!! :XD:

Nice batch! The shovel one is my favorite too! :D And this may sound a little gay, but I like the way Gangfield looks with his shirt buttoned open a bit and his untied bow tie. :P But I like the other ones too, of course. The Gangfield/Dennis ones in the middle for their expressions, and the bottom and top two drawings because they make me wonder where the story is gonna go. Looks like Ruth is going to get more entwined in potential love polygons, and the two men in the bottom are so mysterious! :la:

Also, I kinda wish you had posted these a week or so earlier. :meow: Moar reference material! Mostly the Dennis ones would have been handy. I haven't seen him from these angles yet.

The-Ez Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It doesn't sound gay at all haha! :giggle: I think Gangfield just looks a bit more modern there, so he's easier for us to relate to. :nod: When you really look at it, all those formal Victorian suits look quite silly in comparison to what people are wearing today. :P :meow: I mean, bow ties? LOL that belongs at weddings!!! :XD:

Don't worry about Dennis, though. Go ahead and check all my pics of him — I'm not sure how to draw him either! ^^; His design is not at all cemented. I'm still studying rat anatomy (or as I like to call it, aRATomy! :XD:). The Dennis you drew, as far as I'm concerned, is PERFECT!! :glomp: :heart:

I do really love all the Victorian outfits, though. Maybe because I have seen a good amount of enacted film footage about the 19th century. And I've worn a bow tie a few times, and not even at any wedding. :P

And yay! My Dennis is perfect! :dance:
