I love the Iron Giant's design. I had to go simple with the sketch today because I didn't have much time to draw to begin with. I'm getting packed up to go to the Chicago Con tomorrow (Thurs. - Sun. at the Rosemont Convention Center).
Anyway, because of time constraints, I wanted to try something new. I dont usually draw in an animated style. And by that, I don't mean "cartoony" I mean that the lines I'm using dont have any variance (or atleast not much) So the drawing looks really flat, even though Im drawing things in perspective. In this kind of drawing style, you'll rely heavily on the colorist to determine the lighting, mood, and sense of depth. This is just pencil too, I want to ink this up slick and keep that "dead" line weight. Most of this was free hand so I'll break out my templates and rulers to make sure it's all exact. Then I want to try my hand at coloring this.
