Daily Sketch – April 7th – 8th, 2011

When you see a bunch of gray and faint lines, that means I’ve screwed something up and gone over the bad lines / value with a white pencil, which mutes the blemishes, but doesn’t entirely mask them. For instance her lower arm was in rough shape, so I shortened the forearm, changed the positioning of the hand, ect. This sort of thing could be avoided if I spent more time with the pre-sketch (in gray marker), but sometimes it’s hard to gauge how things are going to turn out until you actually start laying lines down. ~60 minutes

I had a good time drawing with the guys last night (see below) and am trying to do something similar here. ~ 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

Things quickly went wrong with this Monday morning sketch. While I had fun with it after awhile it was initially a rough start to my week. ~30 minutes

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

Pharmacy auto-interface concept

This is a test post, you know, just to try things out. The above image was completed in Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. Part of a portfolio piece depicting a fully automated¬†medicine¬†shop. I didn’t end up using this particular version, but instead went with…. this one;

And I liked the character so much I decided to alter the image again to use on my website’s front-page.

meh. I kind of like where I was going with the shoulder pads on the lady in the lower left but this was not a stellar Monday morning sketch.

This is a two pager in my Moleskine – that dark horizontal line is the ‘gutter’. I need to finish this one – I really like her hat, the striped / ribbed material she’s wearing, and her makeup.
