Hello All,
I've recently started a new website, so I won't be as active on this blog much longer. I'll be migrating some work over to my new site, along with plenty of new work at a much higher frequency than I was able to post here.

So, if you've enjoyed the work here, please follow me over to my new site:

Hope to see you there, and thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for stopping by,

Brawler


Here's a little sketch of some kind of tough guy, not much to it other than it being a random doodle...
He became the basis of a painting, soon to follow.

The Iron Horse

Here's the pencil...

Thanks for dropping by.
