Aegis Character Sketch #1

A few days ago I revisited an old super hero novel project that didn’t go anywhere. I have a whole folder of projects like that on my hard drive: false starts and dead ends. Since I’ve begun drawing again, a lot of those false starts have cropped up. Drawing the protagonist of the superhero story has stoked a fire, and now I’m hammering it out into something new.

 

Tools of the Trade

Here are some of the tools I use when making art.

 

For larger artwork I use Strathmore Bristol Pads 11X14.

For art on-the-go I adore my Sketch Wallet.

My pencil of choice is a Pentel Graphgear 500 with .7mm blue or red lead. <— This and my Sketch Wallet are the two tools that go with me everywhere.

For inking, I’m digging Tombow Fudenosuke brush pens.

While I’ve tried lots of different writing software solutions I keep coming back to old reliable: Microsoft Word.
