I have decided to get my behind back into gesture drawing. It is great practice for understanding the flow and motion of a figure. So daily exercises are the way to go if you can afford the time. Here are mine for the week so far as well as some life drawing and other miscellaneous things that pop into my mind.
Posting a bit early this week with the finals for Inktober and lots of sketches.
Almost to the end of Inktober now. Week 4 has been finished. A little unfocused this week as I was recovering from traveling all over the place.
A little bit late, but here it is. Last week’s Inktober lineup.
And here is a piece I just finished for one of my gallery shows at the end of the month. I call it The Dragon Talisman. Took a while.
And last but not least, finally done with this fan art piece. Took forever, but learned a lot and will learn more in the future.
This past week I shall name The Week of Demented Smiles. At least that is what it seemed like came out of me during all my inktober stuff haha!
Yes. Inktober is now upon us once again. An ink drawing a day keeps the…headless horseman away? I don’t know, but it sounds cool.
Next up I have my entry for the Paint a Monument Challenge over on James Gurney’s blog. Was a lot of fun to do, and had a few friends join me so the conversation was good as well 🙂 I guess I should call most of my sketchbook stuff “mind trippin” because that is what it seems like to me after I look at it a few days later!
This week I have a finished piece for a gallery themed show entitled “The Travelling Circus.”
Also have a quick set of sketches that I did during the show last night.
Had some fun last week starting up my outdoor painting again. Wayyy more fun then sitting on my behind all day inside 😉
And some very very quick soccer field sketches in the crazy hot weather we have been having.
Hey all! Just a few little things this week. First is some work on two separate paintings I will be doing. One for the Infected by Art competition as well as one for the Tiny Dragon book. Just getting the ideas out now, so nothing fancy.
And next, is a rather long coming update on the fan art piece I have been working on. I feel pretty close to the end here once I get all the characters out of the way (and by end I mean probably another 10-15 hours of work). I can’t wait to get this one done PHEW!
Had a great time yesterday at a Native American Pow wow. Lots of interesting facts learned and some awesome music as well.
A second set of thumbnails to narrow down possibilities for another project I am working on.
