Yes, I'm crawling back in here six months after the last post. It's a new year, and I'm really working to renew myself. I'm getting my apartment more in order after living here for six months, and I'm getting more drawing studies done, no matter if it's just some quick gestures off posemaniacs or pixelovely...

...or some more detailed studies from books by Bridgman...

...or Hogarth.

The main thing is that I try to learn from it. It's also good when I really have no inspiration to do anything else. Hm. Should get some more life-drawings done, too.

All right!

Anyway, a new year, and new chances to actually draw stuff to post here. So here's a dump of things I've posted in other places. Still, it's stuff I've made during these past six months when I was too lazy to log in and upload them to my blog.

A Sketch A Day - Sidd, Rose and Amber

Characters I haven't drawn in a long time. I don't think I got Rose's design right...
I also got some markers last week. I decided to get the grey scales of Letraset's ProMarkers, and I got them all except for Cool Grey 2, but I should be okay without it.

So I tried out the Warm Grey scale on this drawing of Amber.

A Sketch A Day - Scooter

Yeah, I got this idea the other day that I really wanted to draw my 8' tall character Miles on a scooter. I have no idea how that got into my head (I think I saw a really tall, big guy on a really small scooter while I was in town or something), but I just couldn't get it out of my head, so I finally broke down and drew it. First, I made some small ink sketches.

You can even see how tall he is compared to his 5 foot-something girlfriend there in the middle.

It turns out that I chose a really bad paper, because once I had sketched it out, it wouldn't let me erase the pencil without smudging, so I just inked on top of it, hoping to be able to fade out the grey in scanning. It sort of worked.

And that's how it turned out. I'm not too happy with the perspective in some places, especially with the wheels. I had so many problems with those wheels.
I think I'll transfer this to a better paper and try to color it later.

A Sketch A Day - On the Bus

I had planned to do some life drawings today, but I ended up hurrying everywhere I went, so I only found time to do one drawing while on the bus home.

A Sketch A Day - People

I was at an appointment at a school I'm applying for, and I took some time to sit down and draw some people. Unfortunately, not many people walked by.

Some women who were talking on their cellphones, and finally an old lady on the bus.s

A Sketch A Day - Ink Sketches

Testing out some nibs, and a reservoir School-G pen I just got. I'm a bit sad that the ink in the G pen gets a bit grey once it dries, so I'll stick with my ink bottles for inking.
