This week I have another outdoor watercolor, a set of tiny imagination drawings, and some thumbs for an upcoming project (all in their respective order). I still need to work on my contrast when I paint as evidence in the watercolor.
So this week brings several things to the table including a nice 3rd situ watercolor as well as urban sketching meetings and July 4th parties. Also, have finally finished the dragon digital painting (YAY)!
A little urban sketching of sorts + parties complete with live folk music!
This week I was able to finally get out and do another quick in situ water color. It was a mad dash to get as much done before a thunder storm both changed the light and let out a mighty downpour. But in the end everything came out alright 😮
A nice odd sketch I did which will come in a 2nd part that is digitally colored.
A quick urban sketch of a greek restaurant that had a great interior paired up with a screen grab from Daredevil (so boss).
And finally a little bit of old school (if you can say that) of some imaginative drawings that started off fueled by a photograph (upper right corner) that I sketched.
Ok so part 2 of this post has a lot of stuff that happened over both this past week and a few things that I wanted to just put up because they were ideas to get “out there.” Sometimes when you are creating something, the image that leaps out of your mind either works or it doesn’t really work. Either way the important thing to do is to do it. Later on down the line you never know when your mind will come back to that image, and though it may not work at the time of creation, you use that as a source to create a newer better image. So without further ado…
Feeling out the rough shading. Yes, very rough 😐
Did you ever go to a concert or gathering and no matter what was playing or happening, get an amazing creative vibe? Well I had that opportunity this past weekend as I went to a Death Metal concert that was pretty rad. I had a blast sketching and squinting and sketching some more.
But up first this week is a very fast (maybe 10 minutes) sketch from the dentist office. I would have had more time, but my ride was leaving and I did not want to irritate them so had to jet. I purposely tried to be very loose in this sketch as I know that is something that I need to work on when sketching from life. I can always go back later and render the crap out of it! ;P
Next is said Death Metal event. So much fun and supporting my buddy’s band Incontinence – yes you read that right!
Lastly a bit of robuts and dinozillas mixed in with some wacky vehicle designs.
On the digital front, not much has happened as I was pretty busy with other life matters this past week. Some refinement on a lotus tattoo.
