New Markers and Gestures



Okay, lots to catch up on, not much time. (Read this post as if you were out of breath and typing at 600 wpm.) I've been doing quick (1-2 minute) gesture studies with Faber-Castell markers and some felt pens. I try to get the feel of what the person's doing, without thinking too much about making things look pretty. I'm also getting over the awkwardness of drawing people in public places. Oh, and I'm doing some anatomy study. Putting in a lot of extra hours drawing. Getting better. I hope. Happy Halloween. Whew!

It's fun to be able to recognize people in your sketches. You've gotta be good if we can tell who it is from a simple, quick sketch. :)

I like the skull studies - they are really interesting. Those markers are pretty cool looking, too.

As soon as I saw that one of Janae reading, I knew it was her. It looks EXACTLY like her. Amazing!
