Here are some quick, sloppy, concept sketches. I’m still trying to figure these characters out. More Alec and Catherine from my upcoming comic which still doesn’t have a title. I do know it’ll take place in England and France during the Renaissance. I’ve been doing lots and lots of costume studies based on Renaissance art and fashion books. I love the hats with the feathers on them. I want the comic to have lots of ’em! You can click here to see more doodles from this batch.
The drawings above are not totally mine so I can’t take credit for them. The first row is an animation study from Beauty and the Beast. The second image is my rendition of a very famous drawing from the original Mulan storyboards. I first saw this drawing as wall art in Disneyland and it nearly moved me to tears. I was ecstatic to find it among the published storyboard collections (I have so many books, I don’t remember which one I saw it in). Anyway, I love that moment so much in the film, so I just wanted to try drawing it. It’s nowhere near as awesome as the original, but it was fun to do!
