This is the latest sketch out of my toned paper sketchbook. I slowly worked at it here and there so that’s why it took so long to post… I forgot how much time can be spent on an actual finished quality drawing. Anyways, not much else to say. Just glad I’m feeling more comfortable with values because next comes color.
I decided to sketch while waiting for my girlfriend to straighten her hair… it was a win win situation Since I wasn’t at my house and this was in her mini scrapbook, I was only able to snap a photo of the sketch instead of the whole scan and Photoshop treatment. This drawing reminded me of the importance of cross-hatching across the form to give it more uhhh… form. Enjoy.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a sketch I started in my toned paper sketchbook. Can’t wait to share.
Fun. Of course. Acrylic inks are kinda like watercolors but you can layer a lot faster. Its also the bad part about it. If you don’t work wet enough, you will get streaks. I need more practice with it though to say for sure.
Here are a few illustrations I never posted. They are from the Visual Development project I had in my Advanced Perspective class last semester…
I’m still pretty new to inking, but I have to say it was something I enjoyed doing. The big shadow shapes were done with India ink and brush and the hatching was done with micron pens. With the exception of a few spots, when I was still trying to grasp the technique.
I remember being so involved in this project. I wish I could write a full story for these characters and their world.
