So these 2 guys walk into a post-apocolyptic bar...


So it turns out I can sketch on the train. Not that there was a rule against doing it or anything (well... aside from actually sketching ON the train), but I just figured it would be too bumpy/crowded. It turns out it's neither of those things.

Well.. it is a little bumpy. And I still feel a little gumby drawing in public. I guess that's all part of the challenge. But if I don't push myself with pointless and retarded exercises like this I'm not going to get anywhere.

I've decided to take a leaf out of Ryu from street fighter's book (who in turn took leaf out of Mas Oyama's book) and engage in some kind of personal version of mountain training. I'm not entirely sure what that's going to entail, but it'll surely be some kind of drawing equivalent of punching rocks and trees and fighting bears. Failing that, it'll probably mean focusing hard on the stuff I know I'm pretty weak at... Or trying to draw underwater or something.

These two guys are just some preliminary sketches for the thing I mentioned last post. There hasn't really been that much discussion at the moment. All I really know is that it should be a little Phillip K. Dick and a little like the old game Syndicate. Also, I decided to add a little Equilibrium, cyberpunk and a hint of nazism, just for flavour.
