Sketchbook - Alleyway by fnook Sketchbook - Alleyway by fnook
I was going through some of my older designs and found a few that I haven't posted to DA. This one here, is something of a speed-sketch. At the time, I was waiting for some phone-in animation approvals, and I had a huge pile of the worst quality animation paper on the planet sitting on a shelf. So I decided to see how many compositions/characters I could wing out before the phone rang with the approvals I was waiting for. This one was done in about 6 minutes, and I personally think it's one of the better ones of the bunch that I did.

I'm a strong believer in the concept that your FIRST idea is often the BEST idea, hence I do a lot of gesture drawings, and sketching as fast as possible.

Thanks so much. Yeah as I said in the description, it was a bit of an experiment to see how many characters/layouts I could whip off before the phone rang.

Thanks so much.. At the moment, I don't have any tutorials available, however I have been thinking about doing some in the near future. Since you asked, I'll try to devote a bit more time & effort into putting something together.

Thanks.. I plan on eventually revisiting this one some day. It turned out rather well for being a "challenge myself" piece.

Sweet work, from the pencil work to the expressions, this is great.
I do believe it's better to do pencils than inks to make something that look more spontaneous and living. :D

I love your work, and this piece really stood out for me. Such incredible composition, emotion and storytelling in one sketch! Just fantastic work, man. I'll be watching your work, in the least stalker-ish way possible!
