Charcoal of Ruby June Discovering a Captured Charter Jack

Just finished pulling this one back from the brink.  This was one of my original panels that I didn’t tone first.  I went ahead and toned the canvas over what I had already done and was able to pull more dimension out of the forms of the characters.  Funny how I’ve been at this a while and sometimes I forget the simplest things like toning my canvas first.

In this scene, Ruby June has followed the deep ones’ tracks and found them searching Charter Jack’s boat house.  Startled, they are beating flippers away into the water.  Ruby June already saving the day!

On a side note, looks like my intention to post something every day is a bit ambitious with 2 kids and a full time job.  Even with my wife’s help, I think that pace would kill me soon.  I’m going to try to post every 3 or 4 days just to give my self some piece of mind.
