Daily Sketch / Red / graphite + colored pencil / 100 minutes


December 27, 2011

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

Daily Sketch – May 25th – 26th, 2011

I don’t think this came together how I would have liked, but it’s got a few things going for it; namely I like that I finally got the hands in the right position, and that they’re at least somewhat feminine. The hair’s awful. These are generally taking longer because of the addition of the pencil under-drawing. ~ 70 minutes.

The other side of the mud / whatever hauling business. Admittedly I cleaned the pencil lines off of this one – it was kind a mess. ~ 70 minutes

Daily Sketch – May 18th, 2011

Weird drawing. This reminds me of a sketch I did while at Volition. In it a woman is rising out of a giant vat of mud to fire on an unseen enemy. Mud-clumps are fun to shade in, and with this entire series of sketches I’m trying to get better at things interacting with the human body, not just ‘floating’ above it. ~ 60 minutes

Daily Sketch – May 17th, 2011

I would like to start incorporating background imagery more into the images. I’m developing a hefty wish-list with these sketches. ~ 45 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.

Daily Sketch – April 22nd – May 5th, 2011

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

Daily Sketch – April 20th, 2011

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

Daily Sketch – April 19th, 2011

I really like the face in the center, but the composition sort of fell apart with the character on the right. ~ 35 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 18th, 2011

1920’s heroin undead chic. Perfect. ~ 45 minutes

April 15, 2011

Daily Sketch – April 15th, 2011

I liked Tuesday’s (April 12th) sketch enough to try another in that same style. Didn’t turn out as good but I like the bandages and the ridiculous ‘brain replacement’ attachment on the head. I struggled with this one a bit ~ 100 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 14th, 2011

That is a rather huge forearm. I like the facial expression and her hair but yeah, that arm is hilarious in hindsight. ~ 45 minutes

Daily Sketch – April 3rd, 2011

I’ll likely continue work on this one a bit, as I think it might serve as a good rough for a painting. First step would be to feminize that hand on the girls shoulder.¬† In comics illustration those ‘x”s are typically used to denote areas where the inker should paint full black. Here I’m just making X’s. ~45 minutes

Daily Sketch – March 31st, 2011

If you’re curious as to why many of the figures are kneeling, crouching, and overall sort of scrunched up (OR missing part of their legs) it’s because I’m working on a very small sketchpad and trying to fit an entire figure into the ‘frame’. I only bring this up because it’s just occurred to me. ~60 minutes

Daily Sketch – March 31st, 2011

Still trying to get more dynamic poses down on paper.

Likes: I think the legs and posterior turned out fine. I like the highlights in the hair as well, though most of them had to be applied with a white pencil after I initially went waaay to dark with the pen.I also like how the shoulder muscle is interacting with the back.

Dislikes: Whoo. Well the arms and back are much too long, the elbows are not good and I only have a vague idea of which muscles in the back would be doing what. Also that hand is a mess, though I wasn’t really focusing on that too much.

Overall I need to get more specific with the musculature.

Still playing with drawing wet hair. I like how this one turned out – the hand on the right was an absolute disaster for a minute there but I think I turned it around.
