i remain y’all…
Mummra concept sketches from thundercats development. did a couple lazy doodles of the original to get started on my new designs….you can see those in Midnight Marauders: The Art of LeSean Thomas Vol2 dropping at SDCC (and available for purchase online simultaneously at leseanthomas.com) next month.
Above are hades workshop sessions. 15 and 20 minute sketches. been a while since i posted the “raw” as i like to call it, lol. I still dont think this life drawing stuff is very popular on Deviant Art, but i really love this stuff when i’m doing it and gotta show the young cats who look up to me that sometimes, it really is all about hard work and knowing the basics of draftsmanship, before you get infactuated with style and the importance of it.
Believe me when i tell you any pro influenced by anime and manga worth their weight in skills will agree that the anime/cartoony shit is just icing. Know the rules, THEN break them!!!
As for me, still practicing….
