I Drew Some New Stuff

I haven’t posted in a minute but I’ve been extremely busy, what with having to find a real job and working on some secret stuff for some secret people in Blogville (speaking of which, please somebody needs to call me and scream at me to finish that because I’m on a super tight deadline).

Oh yeah, and congratulations to everyone nominated for a Nigerian Blog Award this year. ^_^

Today I was so stressed out from all the pressure I decided to take a break so I did a couple of drawings for my graphic novel (that hopefully I will get published some time in the next century).

The first one is of the father of one of my main characters in the story. Obviously he’s shocked about something but I can’t say what because that would be telling and I don’t want to give the story away before I’ve finished.

Here are the roughs:

The second one is a reworking I did of one of my characters Bilili.  If you read this post, this post, or this other post, you’ll know that Bilili is an Nri era (i.e. ancient) Igbo courtesan and she kicks major ass.

I haven’t drawn very much so far this year, but hopefully I’ve improved a bit. Check out the difference between my original Bilili concept sketch and the new one.

My Original Bilili Drawing:
The new Bilili:
This is just the blue sketch. I haven’t inked yet. 
Now that I think about it, inking this thing is going to be a major pain in the ass.
So, what do you think?

    You def have improved my dear!!! I love the facial expression of the new Bilili. It’s like “yes I’m a courtesan. A bad ass one too!”
    Keep it up, you are going places. And btw, I want a personal copy of your book madam, whenever it comes out. Sha try and make it this century.
