Reject.


God, I have so many rejects lying around on my computer. For those of you who don't know, in this wonderful career of mine you have to do something called samples. This basically means that you do some designs, some character studies and some full artwork (exactly to the standard you would charge for) just for the publishers to say "mmmmmmmmmm, nah". This specific example is from a Tokyopop pitch that fell through some time last year. I spent a good two months working on this and many, many, may alterations on the cast. Unsurprisingly, I didn't get paid squat. I've no problem with Tokyopop- that's just the Biz!

*eyes bulging*
I want to draw like that when I grow up...
I hate to admit it but maybe machinery is a guy thing... =_=

aqws said...

you're SO right. I've realised I draw in a very male way. Even my figures are chunky and solid. I may blog about male and female drawing in the future..

Hmm you have a solid art background with proper knowledge about anatomy and art theory stuff so maybe it could be about more than just male/female differences. I think it might be about what different people find beauty in as well. You must find some form of beauty in machinery in order to carve all those details out! X)

Hi John!

Wow. This is really great train!

I can't draw like you coz I've been relying on the computer technology :p

Maybe I have to do the art foundation in England and draw lot of stuff again!
