I did the same thing as I did with Hilda before - this time for the little fox pup, Richie.

When it comes to the medium of illustration and comics, it's good to know your character and get a feel for them. I took Hilda and did many drawings of her with different facial expressions. This is a good way to do a character study.

I find the technical drawing pen like the Rapidograph gives a less organic line than the nib pens I like drawing my comics with.

Today's sketch is a simple pencil study of a mansion. This was intended to be the study for the mansion that Hilda lives in. I did study online photos of mansions and worked this up by combining elements of various photographs.

Today's drawing is one I did with chiefly Rapidograph pen. This car that Hilda (the female fox) is driving is a Mercedes-Benz SSK.
The Mercedes SSK was a German roadster made from 1928 to 1932. Boasting a top speed of 120 miles per hour (or 190 kilometers per hour) and a supercharged 7.1 liter inline-6 engine, this was one of the fastest cars in the world when it was in production.
These cars are extremely rare today. About 100 replicas exist and only 4 or 5 original vehicles still survive, fetching millions of US dollars. The fact that Hilda owns one of these is a testament to her wealth.
This is a study I did of European road signs. The setting of my creation, Foxville, is a European microstate not unlike Lichtenstein, Monaco and San Marino. I wanted to emphasize that the story and setting does NOT take place in North America. So I researched European style road signs and drew these with markers.
