Graphite studies of faces

Face Studies

By | Sketchbook

6 Pages.
Tools: graphite pencil (4B and 2B).
Paper: Moleskine Classic Notebook (5″x8.25″, 70gsm, Ivory).

Got some shiny new pencils and an extra-long sharpener for Christmas. I don’t get many opportunities to do this kind of sketching for my industrial design classes, but it’s a lot of fun. Add it to the list of “things I should do more often”

A few more western character sketches. I switched to pencil sketches midway through the week, so I’m posting these early to keep everything organized.

Messy Sketches: 2-Minute Robots

By | Sketchbook

9 (Very Quick) Pages.
Tools: fountain pens, markers
Paper: Moleskine Classic Notebook (5″x8.25″, 70gsm, Ivory)

This is my “Messbook,” a throw-away sketchbook that I use for demos and sketching experiments. It’s small and cheap(ish) so I never feel like I’m wasting a page, even when I’m completely reckless. Right now, I’m working on a 2-minute design exercise: create a quick, interesting silhouette with a medium gray marker, then rough in the details with a black pen. Each sketch should take 2 minutes or less. The goal is to generate lots of concepts without investing a lot of time, materials or emotions in each one.
