Scrapping the pencil safety net

I’ve recently started reading the ‘Sin City’ series by Frank Miller and also the manga series ‘Gangsta’ by Kohske. The artwork in both is fantastic and has given me a kick up the backside to start experimenting with sketching people again. I’m finding that sketching out in pencil first makes me more restrictive when it comes to adding ink so these examples were all created by drawing straight onto paper with a fineliner. They’re a bit scratchy and out-of-proportion but I also find that I never know what character I’m going to end up with and that is actually a lot of fun.
