Here’s a witch with a mangled right arm. Broom accident? ~ 60 minutes

Daily Sketch – May 23rd – 24th, 2011

This may be my favorites thus far. I took this to my weekly sketch-date to finish up and I think it turned out pretty good. ~ 110 minutes

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

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

I like this one – it has the more theatrical presentation and narrative-based feeling that I’m shooting for. ~ 60 minutes

Finally something I like! Drew this with some old work guy’s at Espresso Royale in Urbana. I typically struggle with mechanical rendering but really had fun with this. I’ll likely continue work on this next week, and will re-post my progress. ~60 minutes

Yeesh, awful. I tried using pen and ink today and it did not go well. I considered not showing this one. You are welcome. ~30 minutes

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.

I get a huge kick out of line art, and for that reason mummies are one of my favorite things to draw. This was completed with a Staedtler pigment liner pen (0.7) for the dark lines / values, a Pigma Micron pen (0.1) for the fine lines, and my ever-present Prismacolor Premier marker (cool gray 30%).

Older mummy drawing – 2009?

Mummy man test. Awesome band name. I drew this in 2009 and it remains one of my favorites.
