The Jester and his giraffe. Quick ink sketches with some brush-pen shading, which I don’t use often. I should have newer, more finished stuff to post relatively soon. In the meantime…

One from the archive: A quick ink sketch of a beaky, one-legged beggar man. At one point I tried to “clean it up”, and got rid of all those sketchy lines floating around him. The drawing lost 90% of its vitality and animation. I posted another sketch from this series a while back.
