Squeak another post in for January

As I mentioned in the previous post, I've been working on a new mini. I had been plotting several shorter pieces for sequential excercise and decided on an incidental that I imagined to be in three brief parts. I was (and still am) fairly happy with the story and the preliminary work but I haven't felt like I'm pushing hard enough on the finishes yet. I need to let go of that preposterous notion that it has to be brilliant...because it won't be. It will hopefully be good and worth reading and a move in the right direction. Scrapping it means that I won't have it ready for the Atlanta Comics Expo coming up on the 8th of February but since I'm on no deadlines because the piece is for myself, I'd rather give it another go at getting it right instead.

So, I think I'll post some early ballpoint scratches. I scanned four different ones but think I'll post only the three most tangentally related sketches so as to not give much away.

First, some quick sketches of intimidating faces (boxers Iran Barkley and Sonny Liston).

Then, some vultures.

Confused? Good.
