Hello again, this time I have some animals for you. I did them as an exercise to experiment a bit with lineart and line economy.
The trick was this: To look at the reference just once. Then try to fill the blanks in the brain by myself. It was just because last week I went to the AGO and something I love about medieval/early renaissance paintings is that they had no idea of how most of the animals were supposed to look. Imagine drawing a lion without ever seeing one and then just come up with whatever the description led you to belief. Or maybe you saw it once, but can’t quite remember how it was supposed to look, so you slim it down, make it bigger than it is or something like that. I did lots of them. These were the best looking ones of the experiment.
And finally, for the fans of Phantom Of The Paradise:
I have a little side project (besides the weekly digital illustrations and some writing and the other other project) that’s called The Doppelgänger. It’s a webcomic about knowing that you’re a bad person under any possible scenario. You’ll see parallel worlds, sci-fi, self-hate, violence, Noir stylings with drawings by yours truly, words and story by Thibault Kervarech.
On other matters, I have to confess that I’ve been slacking on my life drawings. I did this little bit in the Gladstone last week. I promise I’ll get serious about it again now that I’m back in the city.
It’s been a long month and I’ve been working on lots of small projects to keep myself busy while I wait for more job interviews and panic about paying rent. One of them was a pretty simple one: Clean some of the sketches I hadn’t finished in my notebooks. I did about twelve, but hated half of them. Some of these I still hate, but not as much.
This year started a bit slower than usual, but it’s giving me time to pursue some personal projects and take some more care of myself. One of the things that I was wanting to do was to post some of my stuff in society6, which is a pretty cool website. So, without further ado:
It’s been said that all good thing must come to an end, but this one actually caught me by surprise. TKS ended their Life Drawing sessions. But…
THEY ENDED WITH A BLAST!
The theme was Fight Club. Lots of models, bigger venue (Mod Club), amazing makeup for the wounds. It was fantastic. The Madame was cool as usual and the audience was great. There was drawing going on every corner and simultaneous models posing in both floors. It was fantastic.
