Sketchbook - Peter Gross

Rather than restart my Saturday Sketches exactly where I left off, I've decided to jump around a bit and post whatever I feel like whenever the Saturday Sketch mood hits me. Thus I'm starting today with a sketch from this year's Emerald City Comicon. The tale of getting this sketch is in ECCC2007 Report Part I. I'll note that as other artists looked through the book, this was one that people paused on to comment about. Without further ado, Peter Gross:

As a reminder: Almost every sketch in my sketchbook was non-commissioned and done on the floor of a con. These are not the best works of the artists. These are only representative of what the artist can do under pressure in a loud, crowded, and often stressed-out environment. Most of them were done as quickly as possible, to prevent huge lines from forming. Don't judge any of these artists negatively by the artwork you see, instead be as impressed as I am by what they accomplished in far-from-ideal conditions.

To see all the sketches I have permission to post so far, check out my Sketchbook Page. Click for a random Aquaman sketch.

The Saturday Sketch ™ is brought to you by the letters "A", "Q" and the number "65", and also courtesy the fine artists who pour their lives into producing wonderful comic books, then come to conventions only to get asked by geeky fangirls for a sketch of Aquaman. Support an artist, buy a comic book.
