It has been a very tense week. I was involved in a Animation project and it made me discouraged about my drawing abilities a little.You need to step back and let yourself doodle for fun. I actually really like this and I shaded up to almost 10 minutes on the dress and boots. And the support of great friends always cheers me upand motivated!
I never played the games but I think the suit is cool. Had fun drawing and colouring this character. The Japanese translates to “Metroido” which I think sounds cooler personally.
I love working in the Solis Studio with the guys, I also love The Breakfast Club and have been thinking alot about it recently.
I always prefer my pencil roughs but I do plane to ink and colour the crowd in.
Got up early and bought my issue of SpiderGwen vol 1, love the artwork and costume. Fun morning in the SilverSnail.
Held by my lovely assistant Frank, I did another doodle YAY!
I have been super busy! Interviews in the past 2 weeks, doing design projects in the Solis studio and seeing freinds in the city I hardly have anytime or I’m way too tired to post anything. Have another interview today and to ease my nerves I sit down at the SilverSnail, have some coffee and draw.
I drew a Harley Quinn. This costume I love and Bruce Timm is a huge influence of mine.
I’m getting ready to move to Toronto on Thursday but this doesn’t stop me from doing a quick sketch of a cute girl.
I use American Apparel ads and models as ref a lot. I like to just sketch something for no one and it only take me a few minutes to do so…will add some colour to her once I am there.
Just some late night drawing using pencil. Just experimenting with mark making and some new looks for Freya…
Please excuse the quality… no scanner access but I added the white background to make a little more depth.
I hardly type anything in my blog… I just post drawings, videos, photos and briefly comment but this post I want to tell you about this pencil. Every artists should invest in this as it is a badass pencil that will make your sketches even more beautiful.
When it comes to drawing… I use pretty much any standard pencil, marker or paint etc I believe that no matter what you use, if you have the skill and technique down then you can pretty much create anything out what you have and it will be good.
A friend from Canada and I were talking about equiptment we use and he shows me this type of pencil… The BlackWing 602 “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed”. Only available in America he orders them and only uses this pencil. I was bit like “meh whatever” but then offered to send me one and give it a shot… I will be turned.
So Thursday I recieve a parcel which was lovely and inside is the pencil. Was so excited and I wanted to keep it for something special. I tried it out yesterday and what can I say… it is a damn good pencil.
It has a detachable eraser (that actually rubs lines out!) and once it gets a little to stubby you can extend it, the pencil itself is beautiful and draws across the paper so smoothly. And the quote stencilled on it… is true. I hardly have to force any pressure (which I do) and the wieght of the line is obvious.
He was right, I have turned to the dark side… to the BlackWing side and I heavily recommend this to all creators.
The next question I ask myself…
…What Will I draw?
