Heeeeere we go, the final drawings for a proposed children's book. The characters I did a couple weeks back are the cast. So, this is a game I played back in the day in P.E. Centipede was a game that improved on the premise of "Tag" by making the "it" person couple with another person when he tagged them. Then a chain would begin that wouldn't end until time was called.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with these five. I think the contrast will be more apparent when I add color, as the texture of the graphite became distracting (especially on the darker pieces). Body language and characters were the two most important things to me, so I really spent my time doing rough sketches and taking photographs. I didn't want the background kids to be no-faces, so I spent a little time developing each of them. Which is good in my case since a couple panels have the background guys taking the spotlight. I'm really happy with the depth and variety of images. You'll be seeing color soon!
