This is a thumbnail from a sketch of Chief Nantan, one of the elder Native American characters from ADRIFT.
Now, this is supposed to be a fairly simplistic sketch, as it's something to be used as the building block for something larger. Though as I was working I couldn't help but get caught up in the amazing texture of the Native American face. There's an incredible strength in their features that stands out - like they're molded from earth or carved from stone. It's almost surreal.
So I thought, since I've had such a great time with it, it'd be cool to post a little of this sketch each day for the next few days.
Hope you enjoy and I'll talk with you tomorrow.
