Life Drawing 14th May 2015

Watercolours, brush pen and a black Sharpie. As time goes on my flagrant disregard for trying to draw tight pictures grows. And I like it.

Starting to get a ‘little’ bit bored of watercolours already. I’ve got 3 weeks now until the next session so I’m going to have a good hard thunk on what direction to go next. I’m open to suggestions! :D

New Spring Term – Life Drawing Thu 30th April 2015

Firstly – thank you to everyone who voted in the poll in my previous post, its a massive step in the right direction :D

Here are the pics from tonight’s session. Felt very low stress, I was really trying to not worry about doing good drawings and just getting on with it.

I used a mixture of Brush Pen, a black Sharpie and watercolours. I’m using a different brand of paper this time round and its subtly different in texture and feel. More absorbent, less ‘accurate’ but dries much faster.

This will probably be my last 10 week term for a good while as another micro noise human will be joining the family around the start of Autumn xx

Limited Edition Original Inkings

So this is a bit of a departure from what I’ve been doing recently and a bit of a new direction – if you can call rocking it old school a new direction. I’ve been itching to have a crack at dip pen and ink work for a while now so I decided to fire up the old lightbox and ink a couple of pics from my sketchbooks. Then I decided to test whether its still fun to ink the same drawing over and over again, just like in traditional 2D animation clean up. So I did. And it is. It was also nice opportunity to watch a lot of episodes of ‘bottom’ while I was at it. The outcome is a couple of nice wedding present prints and a limited edition of 10 original inkings of a splendid ‘Curious Head Worm’. Here’s pics – looky:

The next big thing on my mind is to go big! I want to get hold of the most massive canvasses I can get and basically do the same as the inkings but on a titanic scale. Big ass Cropley head worms and freaky life models 10 ft high! …but we’ll see how that goes.
