Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

This morning's 15 minute warmup sketch, I was inspired to draw V from V for Vendetta. The whole thing revolves around November 5th so thought it'd be appropriate. Ironic that this years its the day post elections. Anyways, never drawn him before, i thought it would be harder but his mask and persona flowed from the pen pretty effortlessly. Fun stuff! Love these anti-establishment kinda heroes. I'd totaly draw a V book if I ever had the opp. Above is the quote from the movie. I am a huge fan of the movie for what it is, I don't care if its accurate to the comic or not. Both are great in their own rights. This is based on the movie.
Stay locked into the EWG website for daily-as-possible warmup sketches and process posts that you won't see on deviant art or facebook or what not. Twitter/ Facebook and such will only link back here. The Gallery page will feature them in the sketchbook seciton as well. Keeping up the discipline established with Inktober and moving forward :) Maybe not EVERY day but damn close.
