I hesitate to draw Gradius sometimes because, I really want to know him as clearly as possible in order to draw him accurately. He has tanned skin and he's a mechanic.
He has been a character of mine for the last 12 years. I had a little time after the current work load for today so I thought I would take it easy for a few minutes.
This is on our UDON headshot comic boards, with just and assortment of pencils.
