Here's my latest class assignment.  I spent a little longer on this guy than the others, but in a shorter period of time, if that makes sense. 

I originally intended the illustration to be a wide shot of the top floor of the Bradbury building in Los Angeles, but I decided after penciling it in that it just felt way overwhelming from a detail perspective.  The sheer amount of linework on the page just kind of flattened the entire image.  I took an interesting crop, and roughed in some tones and played with a bit of line thickness.  It's rougher than i'd like, but isn't that always how it is?

Also, here's a sketch from our recent class visit to the Descanso gardens.  All of my other sketches of just foliage met with utter failure, and will certainly not be shown here.
