Sketches and WIPs

Hey everyone! It's been while since my last update, but hopefully this large post will make up for lost times.

So, there isn't much to say here, the title of the post is pretty self explanatory. I've searching through my folder recently and I realized there were some things, mostly sketches, that I haven't posted up yet. At least not on the blog. Some of you may have already seen some of these pictures posted else where, either on the wwoec forums or on my twitter. Some of these sketches I will probably finish and color, but most will probably just remain as sketches. The sketches below are in no particular order:

Let's start off with a sketch I drew recently of Maddie Fenton from Danny Phantom:

As I mentioned briefly on twitter, I've never really watched a full episode of Danny Phantom. I always caught a few minutes of it here and there. From what I did see I thought the show was okay and the mom was fun. She looked very cute with the straight cut short hair.

The reason why it took me this long to draw her is because I was always a bit uncertain about how I would draw what I call "the Hartman style." Most of the characters are very geometric (lots of sharp angles and the such) and I wasn't really sure if I could be pull it off, especially the face. But I like to think I did a good job here with Maddie. Although, I made her body less geometric when I sketched her nude. I'm going to have to find a good balance between what I normally do and the Hartman's style.
