A convention sketch of Sgt. Rock for Mid-Ohio Con '08.
Comfort and I have recently started putting up con sketch pre-orders through a couple forums (including our own Uniques Forum [link]
) where people going to conventions we're attending can sign up for sketches before the show gets started. When possible, we'll even start working on these before the show starts.
Every now and then, that leads to something like the Sarge, here, where I find myself with extra time on my hands in an evening and for whatever reason I can't work on anything else for a while, so I wind up doing a lot of doodling on one piece. Weathered, weary old guys are the most fun to doodle on that way, and this piece got crazy.
Suffice to say that the requester is getting much more than he paid for, but sometimes that's how it goes. I don't like to advertise these special 'Adam Got Distracted and Drew Like Crazy' sketches for cons because I just can't do that many of them, but sometimes one just comes out of me. Even at the shows, really.
