Here are a couple of other sample images. These were done as part of the pre-work for this series, part of romancing the idea to Scholastic. Having pictures to go along with a story idea seems to work best for me.

Astroblast Sketches

Here are some examples of sketch and finish. It seems that lately I do most all of my work directly on the computer. I think in shape and color and the computer lets me go there directly. I’ll sketch a lot before I start a book, to find the characters, their shapes and sizes. Once I start a book, though, the computer lets me quickly layout the whole story and see how the action progresses from scene to scene.
