These are some of the many practice sketches I do to test what the characters look like and how to properly draw the action the script needs. Plus it is the practice I need to draw the unique clothes that Samurai's have. I actually have done dozens of test sketches and pages. It needs to be right before I start my proposal. I would of course redraw and then ink these if I liked them enough. The first one by the way was supposed to have a shadow from a tree on his face. That didn't work out.
