Cowboy pensketches

Here's some stuff I've been working on, done for a little artcontest we've started up at work. Topic is 'SpaceCowboys', but as any interpretation is possible, I'm probably going to do something with aliens vs cowboys, an unlikely but fun combination I think :P

I'll post more stuff soon!

Environment Layouts

Greyscaled: Original sketches:
I can't watch tv anymore...they just cut me off! Damn you Ziggo! (= a crappy dutch cable tv provider) *shakes fist at the world*

But, having all this spare time now, did force me to do more sketchin' (thanx Ziggo! :D), so here's some stuff I've been working on.

Just to try something new, I thought I'd do something shocking, and play with..... *gasp* ....wide panels! This instead of the 16:9 format I usually tend to work in.

It allowed for some fun experimenting with layout and composition, kinda like animation backgrounds you sometimes see in artbooks.
I also just saw Princess and the Frog (a must buy!), which was the inspiration for some of the scenes here.

Done with a 0.3 inkpen, greyscaled in photoshop.


EDIT 08/06/10: Added the original linesketches for your viewing pleasure :)
