Sketchbook drawings

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)

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…

Sketches

This week I’ve been sketching at a faster rate, it must be the weather telling me to move, or the amount of crazy people, or just the fact that it’s really hard to stay at home all day when the outside world looks this nice.

I know it won’t last, because it’s a Canadian Summer.

However, it’s thrilling, because I had a small sketchbook, which allowed me to be a bit least conspicuous than usual… to a certain extent. It’s hard to hide that you’re staring at someone. Even if you’re doing it for art.

So, look at all this people:

I did some plants as well:

Also took two small sketches and then cleaned them up a bit at home:

And just because, I added a little sketch I did for a potential commission that didn’t pan out, from photo reference:
