Into the world of Comics: according to Denman Sterling Rooke

well over the past few months, maybe close to a year, I've been trying to focus myself as an artist. I felt like as I started my business, I started it very broad. which isn't a bad thing but it lacked some direction. so after talking with a few of my close friends and thinking about it i decided i needed that little bit of focus. so i thought, "other than fine art, what would i like to pursue with my artwork?" and I figured i should concentrate myself as an illustrator. mainly in the direction of Concept art, digital painting illustration, and even possibly into comics as well. So I've been working on some projects for myself, as i don't have years of experience backing my digital medium. which makes it harder to get jobs in that field, even though i have a strong fine art background.
Well it so happened I found just a project to work on. It will be a collaboration project with a comic writer named Erik Hendrix, since he needs an artist and i need experience. nothing is set in stone. we're still in the stages of figuring out if I'll be a good artist for the project, but i figured I'd post some of the sketches for the characters. I won't be able to post much more than the characters as to keep the story under-wraps until completion. I'll keep you all updated with progress on this project and always appreciate the support. here's one of the characters, Misha Anderson.

Well how about that? I just found your blogspot and what are you talking about but the project we're working on. Great job on the sketches, man!
