Hey folks! Print file layup is going well, I'll have it finished next week, will show you a peek at the process soon! Today however I wanted to show some pages from the World Building chapter of the book - in particular the section on trees and foliage.

      Hey David! It's a bit of both really. The comics I Illustrate tend to have fairly big, invented worlds, so I find it helpful to experiment in my sketchbooks so my brain's loaded with ideas when I hit the comic page. I realised a few years ago that other artists found these groups of design variations on a single theme useful as reference for their own work, so I began gathering them together into single images for sharing on DA etc. This in turn has encouraged me to strive to continue to experiment, and on it goes! Anything that keeps me experimenting is a good thing!

      Hi! These trees are great! I was just wondering what you are shooting for when drawing so many? Are you building an archive of reference for future illustrations? Or are you just trying to stretch your imagination to see what you can do with something familiar? Testing textures, etc.. or maybe all of the above :). Looks like a great exercise.

      Haha! Yeah, Mikey! You know I love to draw those leafy bad-boys!
