Contemplative Carter

I've been gearing up to work on a five page (or so) Comic book teaser with my friend Chris Mich.  I animated Carter (this guy above) saying a line from a movie clip that I got from the 11 Second Club website.  I was going to try and get it done for the website's August competition, but I feel it's time to start in on the comic.  The animation I did helped me practice drawing him, and I'll definitely finish it up.  I find animating to be the best way to really feel out a character.  You can do a bunch of different drawings to get a feel, but to consistently draw the character many times and matching it up to previous drawings, you find so many nuances that you would probably not come across if you just did separate sketches.
