life drawing

Here's a bunch of gestures and sketches that I have done over the last few months. I wish I could make it out to Life Drawing more often. I usually use pin up girls or fashion magazines when I can't actually go to class. The poses and lighting are a lot better for gestures I find. I sketch mostly women as I find them far more challenging than drawing men.

Tonal Studies

Here are some tonal studies, I wish I could do these everyday, but typically I knock out anywhere from 1-5 a week.

I am hoping to do a personal project in the next year that will involve a more cartoony style. So I thought as practice it would be a good idea to so some drawings of some of my favorite characters from my childhood as chibis. In this case they are the characters from the cartoon MASK.

I recently switched to decaf, and this week when I ran out of my fancy pants swiss water decaffeinated beans, I started to use an some caffeinated beans until I can go grocery shopping today. I didn't really notice a difference when I switched to decaf, probably because I never really drank a ton of coffee, so I didn't really think that I would notice a difference when I switched back to the good stuff for a couple of days.

I was wrong.bbbbbbzzzzzzzzz.

Here's me trying to work the ol foreshortening.


more girlie doodles

Well my brain is slowly turning into mush as I continue to look for work. I think I am ready to stop doodling during my days off and ready to start making some finished pieces. Looking at my website it is in need of a huge overall. Nose to grindstone time.

I have some time off so I am going to step away from doing poses based on photos and move onto doing some sheets of poses based on whatever I feel drawing. Here's a warm up sheet and some sketches. When it comes to liner art, I am finding it really hard to work "straight vs. round" when drawing women, I have a tendency to get a rather square looking girl when I try to work it, so I sort of abandoned the idea and started trying to work "round vs more round."
