Character Sketch

As I'm working through sketches for the next illustration that's on my board a friend of mine commented that I needed to update my blog. I've decided to share at least this sketch because I like the way it came out. Our dear Dr. Narbondo seems to be perturbed by something off in the distance - or maybe he's just deep in diabolic contemplation.

I modeled for myself in my living room and as I have the tendency to do, I tore the living room apart. Now is the time I put it back together before my wife wakes up and kills me. I plan on having this painting done midweek, as it needs to be off by about the week's end.

The hat is killer, and I love the pose. Body language looks good, though a bit noble for a villain...? If that's a bad thing. Haha.

Well done, big guy. Gotta get back to work!

Geez, you'll give people the idea I'm some naggy woman saying things like this. I wouldn't kill you, just raise an eyebrow.
