It’s a new year. I’m already feeling older and wiser. I can see white hair growing on me and feeling a strange urge to complain about the weather for hours. Obviously there’s new sketches.
The first one is from an old project that I hope to get back into one day. If I can convince the writer and manage to cram enough time into my schedule, it’d be great.
I love drawing animals as derpy as possible. These ones are photo-referenced, but I tried to push for the personality as much as I could.
This one is not from a picture though. I call it “Cutie“.
For the end, I give you “Derp Conan”:
I’ve been keeping a sketchbook that I like to call “the nice one”, for drawings with pencil and marker. I’m rather proud of it, but I’ve been insanely busy and hadn’t been able to scan much of it lately.
Most of the drawings are done with either copic markers or touch markers, which happen to be just as good as far as I can tell.
These three are kind of an idea circling my head about a Mad Max-ish story. I call the first one King and the lady with the dog are The Spikes.
These two were just experiments with shape and composition.
I happen to enjoy Michelle Rodriguez in Machete (and Machete Kills, where she “surprise cunt-punches” someone)
A sketch for my friend Jen Frankel’s short story. The Owl Woman is a superhero dealing with the death of a close friend.
A sketch titled “Ood in the ‘Hood” (for the whovians):
Some animals, just because.
I watched Beauty and The Beast (The Jean Cocteau version) and I had to sketch something out of it. It’s a really crazy movie.
A exploratory sketch of one of the characters in my webcomic.
And I don’t know how to categorize these ones…
This semester Life Drawing was a very relaxed affair with Rick. It was about experimentation, observation and style, not that much about anatomy (he’d still point out the bad anatomy, though).
I tried pastels for some of the drawings:
Some prismacolor bars (super waxy and easy to use):
Ink and markers:
Some random doodles:
I did some café sketches in a friend’s concert:
And I went to the second to last Keyhole Session (the last one will get a full post of its own):
My favorite from the session, a sketch of The Madame:
