Otherland Sketch (Waiting for the End)

I just got my new Intuous wacom tablet, and I'm getting used to using it, so I decided the first quick sketch I'd do would be of some Otherland theme. It's not great, but it's a start :) That's supposed to be Dread behind the barrier in the background, and Mr. Jonas sitting in the gypsy camp. I've titled it "Waiting for the End", since it just seemed appropriate.

Oh, thank you! I assure you, I'm not on crack ;) Just completely missed the forum blatantly titled "ART".

Hey, I enjoyed that.  A great deal of information in that small sketch.  Thanks, and please share more.

Re: Otherland Sketch (Waiting for the End)

:-O Thank you Mr. Williams! I got some of the most wonderful imagery from your Otherland books, so I'm hoping that when my tablet skill gets to my traditional skill level, I can tackle a much better rendition of a few scenes. Again, thank you very much for the inspiration.

Re: Otherland Sketch (Waiting for the End)

Fair enough. :) I just can't attach a 'mister' to Tad; it makes things short-circuit in my head and heaven knows we don't need any more of /that/ going on.

(It /is/ a lovely sketch, by the way! Respect, indeed, where it's due, and I happily echo the wish to see more.)
