People sketchesss

Here's a few new ones - all observational, with a few focusing on line economy.  I also drew a couple whom I believe to have been on a first/second date...that felt kind of creepy.





These digital sketches were done in PS - about 40 minutes total trying to stay really loose and play with the style and expression based on several images.  Thanks for looking!


Here are a couple older ones that slipped from posting - some seem to have had more time spent on construction, but a few are pushed far at the same time

World Cup Final Onlookers

Instead of watching the final game I found myself across the room from a crowd huddled around the coffee shop TV - prime suspects!

Same ol' deal on the small sketchbook with an ink pen and col erase for shading

Illustration Update

Dropping off a few various illustrations that I've been working on.  A few wip, some inks etc.


w.i.p. image - composition is receiving tweaks before any final rendering goes down - little cliche but lots to learn from it.  


I revamped one of my portfolio paintings.  
Before:

After:

The goal here was to clarify the focus of the image, up the drama, contrast and detail...I think it's a bit more interesting and tense now as the old composition was quite awkward.


w.i.p. image - I like the colors and themes that are going on, but I'm going to eventually take another stab at the composition/storytelling aspects.

Location sketching from different Vancouver areas

People (big surprise!) from May

There are also a few tables in there...cause perspective is important, right!?  (no really, just something I need to practice now and then...draw-through, mirroring etc. from reference)

Casual Ink Sketches

I'm continuing with these simple observational sketches.  The only main design decisions here are composition based; what to include/exclude and where to place them, which makes for a very relaxing but informative study.  While the content is 'dull' the balancing of the composition and freedom of representation keeps it rather enjoyable.
