Character pensketches


At last, I finally have some more characterwork for you guys! I just got back from a 5 day minivacation, which was really great! I got to relax, swim, read and ofcourse also spent some qualitytime sketching! :)

For each character I came up with a very short backstory and how they would tie in to the mainstory, and just started sketching from there. I did a couple of takes on a bum, thieves, kids and the grandma with the lightbulb, which is one of the main characters (more on her coming soon)

Sketches were done directly in pen as usual, taking aprox 5 to 10 minutes per sketch.
I also hope to do a color pass on some of these, so stay tuned :)

hi Edwin,
these are wonderful. You have some great action poses there. Expressive with clear silhouettes. Do you always work traditionally with pen and paper?
cheers

What a crazy amount of sketches but can we see some more color and detail work? Please.

I really like them. Some of them give me a bit of a Fiep Westendorp vibe, which is a good thing by the way. :)
