OK, so today being my birthday I decided to start a new ongoing project that would help me work on my drawing skills. I also feel it's in my best interest to explore the concept of making prints so that I can create some residual income. Yeah, it's a pipe dream but I have to start somewhere no?
SO, with that in mind I've decided that Wednesday's are going to be for illustration from now on. You know, that thing I got a degree in about 14 years ago and decided not to use. I feel if I do a illustration every week for the next year something good while come from it. So here's my first stab at it. I figured I'd start with something I love. And I love me some Wolverine. I just did a basic sketch of Logan to get his character down. I always hated the way his hair was done. I mean how does hair grow in up into points? And his forearms, well, I like me some big ape arms, that's just me. Which help's because they allow for room for the claws. Anyways, here's my Logan. Oh, and for the record, I like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. He's great. Just a touch too tall.

one day I'll be able to actually buy a real sketch book
