Fight Sketches

Here's a few pages of development sketches for the Fight painting in the Ancient Book of Myth & War.
The originals are 11 x 17.

Don,

I find these conceptual sketches very interesting especially if you compare them to the final artwork. It look like you were trying to develop the character design as well as right composition. But more interesting, it is like you are working the fight angles as though you are working a production camera.

very interesting as these sketches are rough but reveal your plan of attack for the final design.

PS. I hope that you will be coming out to APE as I missed your show down in LA
