New Favorite Sketches

By | Site Updates

Today I added several new images to the “My Favorite Sketches” section of my portfolio. They’re a collection of character studies with exaggerated features (it’s what I’m practicing right now), using graphite, white pencil and acrylic.  Follow this link to view them (along with many other nifty sketches).

Faces with Exaggerated Features

By | Sketchbook

8 Pages.
Tools: graphite (3B)
Paper: Moleskine Classic Notebook (5″x8.25″, 70gsm, Ivory)

Working on exaggerated features this week. The early drawings (they’re at the bottom of the page) are really awkward. I worry so much about making the faces look “right” that I have to force myself to take risks. After a few days of practice, it feels a bit more comfortable. I think I’ll work it a while longer.

Face Studies

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.
