I did some doodles this weekend. I started off with a face that I ruined (then ruined on purpose) and moved to some poses in SenshiStocks gallery. These were real fast. The point was to capture movement, since I seem to be a little stiff. When I started using the pen to do the gestures, the one thing that distinctly stood out was how much I use my eraser.
From there I moved to Auroradreams Stock photo gallery and played around with some of her stuff. In the middle of the second page is a quick sketch I did while my daughter played Singstar on Playstation.
This is just a quick sketch of another one of Auroradreams poses. I think I was too tired and could not concentrate on what I was doing.
Her gallery was still up this morning when I got up and I decided to do a better drawing. I went way back in the archives and found this pose to try to capture.
I didn't pay attention to how long it took me to do this sketch, but I do know it was under an hour, which is pretty good for me. I have been using the envelope method of finding the angles and it has helped me speed up tremendously.
If I can get some housework done around here, I hope to get some more sketches done.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
