Weekly sketch posts and updates

We hope everyone is having a good year so far. Things are really heating up here at Alpha Dog Studios. Our projects are moving forward nicely. The creative teams are in place and they are cranking out the work. We will update the progression of each project here and let you take a peak at some of the art that will not be seen anywhere else. So let us know what you think.

Weekly Sketch assignments
We are starting something new this week here at the Alpha Dog Studios blog. We are starting a weekly sketch blog. The assignment sketch will be handed out by a different member of the studio each week and the participates will have a week to get it finished. Once it is finished, email them to, and they will be published on this blog, and you will get feedback from the artist who is running the assignment that week.

This week's assignment is run by Will Caligan and the subject is independent comic heroes. Draw any of your favorite independent comic characters but make sure you put your take on them.

That is it for this week. Enjoy the page from our upcoming Grimm mini series: Dynasty. Penciled by Bat Hilliard, inked by Mark Stegbauer and written and created by Will Caligan.
