Sketch Diary: Inktober Day 5 Chicken - Rooster dude

I'm unfortuantely not a huge fan of how the inked version of this came out. The flaws of the pose became more apparent. Ah well. Good practice.

Watch me ink this handsome dude on youtube!

Sketch Diary: Inktober prep - day 4 Spell - sleepover gone wrong

This sketch was tons of fun and happened really quickly. I didn't do a mockup or thumbnail before hand, just went for it (hence the wonky perspective going on). I just knew I wanted a monster coming out of a closet or something with some girls trying to hold it back. That was a thing that happened at sleepovers, right? Slumber parties, whatever you wanna call them. Everyone would sit around and tell spooky stories after dark and try to scare each other. Inevitably, someone would get dared to do the 'Bloody Mary' thing in the bathroom, alone, in the dark. And sometimes, you'd get lucky and get a screamer that would freak themselves out so much, their parents would have to come pick them up and take them home at 1am. Definitely not speaking from experience. #imisssleepovers

Sketch Diary: Inktober Day 3 Roasted - cute demons around a campfire

Aren't they just the cutest! I think this turned out considerably better than I thought it would. I was really expecting it to go sour, especially when I started doing the background. But I managed to pull it together in the end, I think. And isn't the pop of red fun! Idk why I did that. I just have all this colored inks and I wanted to make use of them. I maybe shouldn't have done the moon and stars in red... oh well. Still like it.

Watch me draw these cuties on youtube!

Sketch Diary: Inktober prep - Day 3 Roasted - cute demons around a campfire

I have no clue where this idea came from. The prompt for the day was Roasted and I immediately thought FOOD lol. The rest of the little scene followed from there. Though I ended up having them roasting veggies, originally I was thinking about roasted meats. The perspective practice here was good for me, not that I executed it very well, but well enough to get the point across I think. And look! Another background?! What's the world coming to?!

Sketch Diary: Inktober Day 2 - Tranquil - mermaids relaxing on a beach

Surprise! I did some more mermaids for Inktober. When you're trying to work quickly and under a tight timeline, it's much less stressful to go with things that feel good or come easily to you. For me, it's definitely mermaids and female bodies lol. I have mixed feelings about this drawing, though, cuz while I like the mermaid on the right, the one on the left feels so wonky to me (especially the hair and tail). But her hands came out well so there's that. Also, hey look at me! I drew a background! Time to party!

Sketch Diary: Joi inspired portrait

This was inspired by Joi from Bladerunner 2049. There's so much going on in that movie that inspires me as an artist. I could probably do the equivalent of an art thesis all about that film. This sketch started out as me just trying to loosen up my subconcious and clearly, I had Joi on my mind some where in there. It's so cool to have those little chats with your self via drawing.

Sketch Diary: Portrait quick studies

I used quickposes.com for these but didn't use the timer function (or used a very long timer). I wanted to focus on flushing out the lines a bit more and I like how they turned out. Doing fast, 60 sec portraits seems way harder to me than normal  figure gesture sketches.

Sketch Diary: Curvy gestures

Cramming as many gestures as possible onto a single page is so satisfying. Then plucking one pose that felt like it had some potential and expanding on it in a longer drawing, I can't recommend the process enough. You get all nice and warmed up doing the 10-15 mins of poses and then spend like 30-45 mins enjoying your fav pose from the set.

Watch me draw this amalgamation here:
