Exploring Fablewood- May 22, 2017

Lots of sketches and gestures as the magic market is being populated by vendors of all sorts with a variety of enchanted bobbles. In the past I've drawn a few satyrs of Fablewood that are akin to classic depictions of satyrs rather then ones that would 100 percent fit into Fablewood. This week I've been exploring how satyrs of Fablewood would look like, experimenting with horns and clothing. The satyr below mixes classic depictions, my personal task, and influence of traditional Japanese clothing into a sitting satyr with his scrolls. In the finial I plan to add more the Japanese influence into the clothing as well as the pottery and calligraphy props. 

Here's the first go at a structured drawing.

Exploring Fablewood- September 5, 2016

I am done with all the illustrations for this years sketchbook. Now its time to put it all together. I am very happy with the work I created and look forward to sharing the final product with you all. Next week I will reveal the title and cover for Exploring Fablewood.

This week is a small study of a satyr I did as a cool down drawing after work one night. Enjoy.
