Old west Banker

Lately, I've been reading Amid Amidi's CARTOON MODERN which has been inspiring me to do looser, more stylized drawings and this was the result. This guy is a banker in the old west done in the old daguerrotype style of photography with a monochormatic sepia tone.




watercolor and pen with slight computer color alteration

What a great blog! You're very talented! I really admire people who can do character work, which scares me.

My brother in law does 3d animation, for stuff like Star Trek, Lost, etc.

I like the longer haired guy with the green turtleneck too!

Hey chris.. this drawing is good. Though, it's not much different than the rest.

Loose/sketchy doodles are always more fun to do though.. and nice on the eyes.

You just gotta know/or find out what style makes you tick. What really comes out of you. Books and other peoples art can inspire, but eventually you'll develop your own way..

All your previous material is great too. Dont loose that.

Regards

ariel
