    This is my first sketch for 2007, and it is also the first sketch that i'm posting on my new sketchblog (see link in sig ). Color-wise, I took a few liberties where it seemed logical to do so. As for why he's wearing a Batman-like cape... I guess I just felt like drawing a Bat-cape.



    This sketch is much simpler and looser than my normal illustration style. basically, I am trying to loosen up, so that I can be a little more productive, instead of agonizing over every little detail.

    My normal process is something like this:
    1. concept sketch (any medium)
    2. loose sketch (blue pencil)
    3. tight pencils (.5 mechanical pencil, F lead)
    4. inks (usually tombo brush pens and sakura microns)
    5. colors (photoshop)


    The process for Skeletor (and the other sketches that i've posted here so far) is more like:
    1. rough gesture (blue pencil)
    2. tightening/inking (extra fine pilot v-ball pen and pentel sign pen)
    3. colors (photoshop)


    So you can imagine that the process is much quicker this way. My coloring style is still pretty clean (and i'm still sooo slow in photoshop), but so far this is working. I might experiment with some looser coloring styles in the future.

    Comments and criticism welcome.

    Really liking your style mate. Especially his Havoc Staff. I don't think his expression is evil enough, he looks kinda confused, maybe just slant his skull-brows. Nice colouring though
    JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

    super-munkyboy: thanks man! i was trying to give skeletor's skull a blank or sorrowful look--not to say that skeletor was supposed to be sad, but skulls sometimes have that sorrowfully blank look about their eye sockets. it really didn't work out though--earlier when i showed this pic to a friend, he said that skeletor looked ashamed, like he had just farted. to which i replied, "that's why his cape is fluttering."

    Ram_Man_21: thank you--i'll do my best!

    Mike Bock: thanks--i have really been fixated on drawing MOTU/POP characters recently, so you will definitely be seeing more!
