A very long day of work today. From 9:30 am to half past midnight in front of the Cintiq earning my keep and thinking at when I'll be able to just draw for fun, which happended to be after half past twelve when I finally finished to do what I had to do. Such is the freedom of freelancing life.
Anyway, this week I want to draw a short comix story and here I post this character I thought about some weeks ago and that this week finally will be developed. It's the Scarecrow.
He lives in a corn field doing exactly what his name says, but as you can see, he's a strange creature, with long limbs, long hands and... feathers. I did a couple more sketches of him now,
