Odyssey characters

Published by at 9:54 am under odyssey,sketchbook,tools & tech

Probably everyone who reads this blog regularly is also aware of my Facebook page? So it will not be news that I’m working on The Odyssey, nor that I’m using photo reference of my friends as models for many of the “extras” — that is, the hundreds of named and unnamed sailors, suitors, servants, etc. who appear in the book. I’m also using some web reference for certain characters.

Once I have reference photos, I do a few loose sketches, try some different hairstyles, and then come up with character studies that look something like this:

character sketch - Mentes character sketch - Mentor?

character sketch - crewman character sketch - suitor?

    When ink comes out of my pen, it never makes things that look like *that*! Usually it makes me have to throw my paper away.

    Having artistic talent is so amazing to me….
