Sketchbook Dump

For the past few years I've tried to make it a habit of carrying a sketchbook around with me wherever I go just in case I had the urge to sketch. Each sketchbook had no continuity and was just filled with random drawings. Which isn't a bad thing but it wasn't until I had the opportunity to take a sketch class taught by the super talented Mark. One day we had a class discussion about having a sketchbook for everything (monsters, backgrounds, people, comics etc etc). So I made a point to make each of my sketchbooks geared towards something. So here it is. My most recent people sketchbook.

Fairy Sketch

Here's a 3 min quick sketch from my gesture session last night. The model came with some random props that confused me at times with the fairy theme but it made the session fun. More next week! Hopefullly...

Here are a few sketches from last night's gesture session. I was trying out an old japanese sketch pen I found in my backpack. Now I need to remember where I bought it.

Here's a 2 hr speed painting of Sévérine from Skyfall. I tried to keep it as loose as possible. I hope to cut the time in half in the future. Until then... practice practice practice

The Drawing Club - The Queen of Hearts

Happy New year! It's been awhile since I've been to The Drawing Club. I felt very rusty especially coming off a holiday break. This time around I was trying to break out of my comfort zone and take the less realistic approach. A total fail as I started out warming up in that direction with the first few poses. I hope to keep these workshops consistent in the coming months. As always I used a brush pen and added color with red copic sketch marker.

Sketchbook - Joshua Tree

Here's a sketch I did while out in Joshua Tree last month. This was all I could get at that moment. The sun was coming down fast and we needed to make time to hike down before it was dark. Hopefully I could make a trip back sooner than later. This place is surreal.

Figure Drawing

Here are a few sketches from Karl Gnass' Advanced Figure Drawing class this past summer at the Animation Guild. There's something therapeutic about drawing the figure especially when you're surrounded by so much talent. I hope I could keep this going with other figure drawing workshops around town. I used color pencils (black, sepia & sanguine) on newsprint. The length of each pose ranged from 8 to 20 minutes.
