More sketches!

Here's some more stuff from my sketchbook. I've been drawing more lately than I have been in a long time, and I think it's starting to pay off. In only a month or so I've filled about two thirds of an entire book. All were done in ball point pen; in #6 I used a Prismacolor 10% gray, which I thought had a nice effect, but it bled through the paper and onto the next sheet, which sucks.

Hope you like them. More on the way!

Slow News Day

Been working on my portfolio some more lately so not a lot to share. But I did this sketch in Photoshop tonight so why not, eh chief?

Been Mackin

Sabrina and I were recently turned onto comic artist and watercolor extraordinaire David Mack (google him!), and this is my attempt to copy a couple of his Kabuki paintings. I really love his style; it's a lot like my illustration instructor Thomas Applegate's style, really loose and colorful.

New sketches - Part 2

And here we have some of my favorite pages from the same sketchbook, also in ball point pen. These were done within the past couple weeks.

Next up, some new watercolor stuff!

New sketches - Part 1

It's been a while since I have made a post so I thought I'd start off posting some stuff from my sketch book.

These first pages are sketches I did at my girlfriend's college. I sat and drew people in a quad while she was taking a final. It's pretty funny how freaked out people seem to act when someone wearing dark sunglasses is sitting and drawing on a bench somewhere. Needless to say these were very fast drawings. Medium is ball point pen, my new favorite drawing tool.

Part 2 comin' up!
