Historical Assignment



These were done at 10X15 on Bristol for a historical assignment.  The time period is 1959, and it's set at Christmas.  My goals were to improve my storytelling through use of detail, improve the clarity of my body language, improve my compositional skills, and include more detail and texture into my panels.  The intention is that these would be inked (eventually, by an inker), so while shifts in graphite color don't matter, it was important that spot blacks and shadows be filled in, not just marked with an "x".
