The First Sketch
The First Sketch by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 24th submission to DYOS X. [link]

The very first sketch I uploaded to the Internet. Good God, to think this represented the pinnacle of my skill at the time. The MiGs are alright, though. :p

While my first few drawings were mainly supplemental to larger comics, the switch to pencil-and-paper began a subtle shift in my narrative style toward a more "traditional" graphic novel structure. It also heralded the introduction of a number of characters from my aborted pre-DYOS comic, three of whom are featured here.

Cowboy Bebop © Sunrise Inc.;
The Fairly OddParents © Butch Hartman;
Kan' Sharuminar, Stylesrj & Taillesskangaru © themselves;
All other characters © me.
