Preliminary Sketch

•February 17, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Not feeling much better today than I did yesterday, but I decided to at least start something and that’s what this is. It’s just the beginning of a finished piece that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. It’s not so bad, but I’m going to tweak it quite a bit.



Crappy Figure Sketch

Yes I drew this yesterday. Yes I realize it sucks ass.


Figure Sketch from Reference

Ugh, why is it that I can draw great one day, and crappy the next?! I tried two different poses that I found and this was the best I could do. I know, it looks like garbage. I’ll have to work on it and see what I can do but this is it for now. Going to bed.

Stylized Face

I’m really not too unhappy with this particular face. I see some things in the scanned version I want to fix, and I haven’t finished the hair, but I think this is one of my better stylized faces so far. I do plan to finish this one, and I may even put some color to it. We’ll see.

Realistic Face

•February 13, 2013 • 2 Comments

This is by far not my best work. I admit to not really putting my all into this, in face I had a lot of difficulty with motivation today. I’m not sure if it’s just because I’m having a bad week or what, but here it is almost one in the morning, and I’m just now getting this done. I didn’t want to skip a day because I knew I would regret it tomorrow. It’s getting a bit hard to draw every single day, or maybe I’ve just hit a slump. In any case, I did draw today, even it it did turn out pretty poorly. Here it is. I hope I have more will to do better tomorrow.

Figure Sketch from Imagination

•February 12, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I’m posting this a day late but I promise I drew it on time. I got on to post last night, and WordPress was not working right so I had to wait until today. Anyway, it’s a meager little sketch. I thought I’d take what I’ve learned so far and try to sketch at least a partial figure from imagination. It’s really not great, but it’s admittedly better than what I could have done five weeks ago. There are tons of things wrong with it. So if there is any help anyone can give me on this I’d greatly appreciate it.

Explaining and Drawing the Neck

•February 11, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I think I’ve got a pretty good start on drawing the face, so I figured I’d start building from there and do a neck study. The one’s I drew today are definitely not great, but they’re not bad either. It’s just some sketches of the neck muscles in different positions.
