Warm-Up Sketch; Captain Christmas 2.0

Update (FRIDAY, June 5, 2009): Besides the Toby Skybuckle and StarDucks tasks I'm playing with a re-design of our Captain Christmas character for some action figure plans we're discussing here. Motto: The decent chap-hero becomes an almost invincible superhero. "Almost" being the operative word.

Original entry from Wednesday: Starting with tomorrow, I'm officially back to work at my (more and more digitally) drawing desk after this very time in Florence.
