A couple of sketches for an upcoming thing. First time I’ve ever drawn a koala. Did you know they have two thumbs? Yeah, me neither. Learning new things. Illustration is awesome!
Screwed around with an old sketch. Put it on the flat-bed, scanned it in, inked & colored in MangaStudio. Used a photo I took in Iceland as the back-drop. Weird little dude.
Inktober kicks off this month, & I’ve decided to take part in the challenge. Inktober was started by Jake Parker back in 2009 as a way to improve on his art skills. The rules are pretty simply, make an ink drawing daily for the month of October. Improvement by repetition. I’m participating in the “5K” version, committing to an ink drawing a week. I’m hoping that I’ll surprise myself & make the time to do more, but I wanted to commit to something & be realistic…or it would never happen. So here we go, Week 0 (zero) Inktober submission:
It’s been a while since I’ve drawn any type of vehicle, so I figured I’d challenge myself in two ways; Inktober drawing / vehicle drawing. Found a great photo of a rad, lifted jeep over on the Le Container blog (third one down). I particularly like how the aspects & challenges of both ideas pushed one another. Really fun to work on & exciting to to see what I’m going to do in the coming weeks!
Drew this quick sketch on a plane a few months back. Got stuck in the middle seat (which, if you’re a 6′ 6″ tall person like myself, you understand how bad it sucks) & had an odd view of the flight attendant buckled into the jump seat by the emergency exit. (I’ve never had such little leg room in an emergency row…budgets are being slashed everywhere I guess…). Figured I’d make the best of losing feeling from the knees down & got weird in the sketchbook.
There are a few things worse than bad coffee…but not many.
Rocked out some quick sketch jammers of kitties just hanging out the other night. Hope this provides a relaxing vibe in preparation of your weekend plans.
