Three doodles from imagination, done over two days amid other fun stuff.

so i did a self portrait study of the Belvedere Torso, I was mainly focusing on separation of light and shadow along with edge control.

:> I did this a week ago when I found out that Brandon Sanderson was doing a book signing around where I live, and since I owe him quite a bit for the inspiration I figured it was the least I could do in return. It doubled as bribery, too, since I had about 4 books to sign.
I started it the day before, since I’d only just found out about it, and thanks to a hurricane of coffee along with the lovely opinions of friends I managed to get it done on time and out to the printers.
Still fun stuff though. I have an idea for a finished, planned piece which will hopefully come later.

Hey everyone,

Figured I’d post some 30 minute sketches that I did for the spitpaint group on facebook; some have been posted, others have gone to pile of sadness. They’re very fun to do but entirely unforgiving, you have to decide where you’re going early on and hope it works. Going from the top, I believe the topics were: Desert Trek, Horned Helmets, Demon Dog, I don’t remember, and Giant Clock.

edit: If anyone else has Dark Souls II you should send me your username for jolly cooperation.

malforalate asked: ahhh!! teach me! I am so incredibly impressed by your personal work!! so imaginative

:] Well thank you, and I’m almost positive there’s no surer way to ensure artistic demise than have me teach.

Still though, feel free to ask questions about things you’re studying. Having a slow stream of questions and things to consider keeps me bright and sunny.

Two finished sketches, mostly from imagination, and a photostudy focusing on edges.

two sketches from imagination, about 30 minutes to an hour each.

:> fun stuff to do inbetween studies, keeps me from feeling stale. i should experiment more with them, though.

A personal illustration in between studies. A lot of experimenting and messing around, which I should probably reserve to sketches since this piece took a whole lot longer than it needed to.
Still, fun stuff.

A study after Feodor Vasilyev, was looking to nail down colors and such when I figured I may as well draw some of it out, too, since trees are kinda my jam.

:> While I’m at the whole posting sketches thing, I tried doing a 30 minute doodle since that whole spitpaint thing has blown up.
I might do more in between studies since they’re kind of fun to do; they force you to focus on laying in only what’s important, since anything else is an unacceptable waste of time.
If you look hard enough there’s a face and a hand in there :>

Did some face doodles because I wasn’t very good at face doodles and I wanted to be better at the face doodles.

Mixed in with some from imagination are a bunch of drawings after Loomis, Bridgman, Vanderpoel, and Bargue, as well as a few poor renditions after Burt Wesley.
