Sketch dump!

The first week off has been spent goofing off, but it’s time to get back on track and clean up a lot of the things that I left incomplete during the past few months.  There’s animations, storyboards and layouts I want to retouch and lots of ideas that are just scribbled in notepads that should be committed to paper.

I’ll do my best to make at least one full piece a week and try my hand at new techniques.

It took a while but I scanned most of my sketchbooks from this semester.  These are the ones I liked best. Enjoy!

I’m very into toned paper sketchbooks now. I love them.

And some digital stuff, just for fun.

Keep visiting. It’s harder to let things go if I feel under surveillance.

Animal sketches

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.
