Fun fact: in an adult human, the skeleton comprises about 14% of the total body weight, and roughly half of THAT weight is water. Incidentally this is my 100th daily sketch worthy of posting.
Hah! I found this in an older sketchpad today – this must be from around 2008. I really like the direction it was headed in, and don’t have any idea why I didn’t work on it a bit more. The idea was that the woman had escaped from a horde of elderly zombies, and still had their dentures clinging to her clothing. Also she has adult braces (click the image for a closer look), which sorta tied into the whole dentures thing… ~ 50 minutes
I typically stick to line art, but am slowly trying to branch out and find ways to draw in a more painterly fashion, if that makes any sense. Subject-wise, I drew most of this while re-watching a few of the Harry Potter films, so drawing a naked cauldron lady was an obvious choice. ~ 180 minutes
I started my favorite month off right with a marathon of The Simpson’s always excellent Treehouse of Terror. Thoroughly inspired, I drew this lady with monster hands. ~ 70 minutes
I like where this is going, though I wish I had been able to fit in just what it is she’s doing with her hands. ~ 60 minutes.
FIRST MOLESKINE FULL! Yep this is the last page / last image for the first of what I hope are many more Moleskine sketchbooks to come. As it was the last image in the book, I was already working out of a new sketchpad, and so had to remember to go back and finish this one later. Similar to both the April 12th and April 15th sketches. ~80 minutes
So THIS is what I was destined to draw on my 30th birthday? Not my favorite work, but I like the eyes. I would actually like to take a crack at coloring this one. Spooky. ~ 40 minutes
Yeesh. I like the figure on the right but the left one really got away from me. Ink is unforgiving in that respect. ~ 40 minutes
