I'm having totally STUPID amounts of fun playing with Photoshop. And, yes, I really did have a red velvet sailor suit like that...for about ten minutes. Then I think they realized I was going to set fire to the house in the night if they made me wear it. I was youngest; I got hand-me-downs. But god knows when that thing was handed down from -- a Victorian orphanage, by the look of it.

haha your crativity is a great thing. I like it when someones personality comes right out in their work.
The birdman, I also enjoyed...what about bringing him back and doing a nice digital? I don't know exactly what your wanting to dig back into though. thanks for correcting my aweful 'beetle' spelling. Don't be a stranger, I want to see what you do in the future

OMG! I have stars! I can't tell you guys how surprised and flattered I am. There are so many people in this forum whose work flat out blows me away. I tiptoe around the sketchbooks every morning with big eyes.
I posted the old stuff to kind of nerve myself up to begin drawing again. When I found that sketchbook, it reminded me that I had *something* before I disappeared in the bowels of a corporation for 25 years.
In a way, I kind of stepped on my own tail by posting the older work, though. What follows is going to be loose, sketchy and mostly digital until I can unpack my drawing materials.
Yeah, lucky me...I'm trying to sell a house in this market. The real estate lady was like, "about all this junk...can you make it go away for a while?" So my life is in boxes for the foreseeable future. Partly, I'm drawing to distract myself; otherwise, I might start screaming and never stop.

I really enjoyed my corporate job. All my friends and family thought I was nuts, because I had been Snotty McFineartist all my life and then all of a sudden I was a cubicle-monkey. But those early computer graphics systems were INCREDIBLY expensive, so if you wanted to play digital, you had to go corporate.

Groovy work, man. I really dig those old school sketches. I think the hand-made stuff is much better than the digital works. The oils look really good too, good technique. What about some backgrounds to put those characters in?

I completely suck at environments. That's something I'm going to work on.
The old-school stuff is a little misleading: those probably aren't sketches as such but are things I had been working on for a while. I often did drawings multiple times until I was happy. I'm very slow.
I'm hoping digital will help me loosen up and be more sketchy -- at least in my preliminary drawings. Electrons are cheap and ink doesn't have an "undo" button.
