My sketches from last week. I was a bit under the weather most of last week so I couldn’t stay up to late to do anything major in color. This week gotta get back into drawing animals mode again.
Every couple of days a week I try to do a sketch with the topic taken from Sketch Dailies. The theme today was Chinese New Year, the year of the goat/sheep. It’s fun for me sometimes depart from my usual style and try something with the look and feel of that region. I looked a number of Chinese watercolor paintings and tried to emulate the thick black brush line look.
Some late night casual skimming through some classic manga has driven me to experiment with a more realistic look. I am going to blame it on all the synth-80’s music I have been listening to.
Once I figure out some problems with shades and more steady line value all the way through, I definitely want to try doing some prints.

Trying out a new set of Frenden brushes in Manga Studio. I really like the scratchy feel of it all. Totally going for an Initial D vibe on this piece.
Still making my way through Manga Studio. It’s a fantastic program it really does feel smooth like you’re actually drawing on paper.
Felt like doing some Bioshock:Infinite fanart. I still haven’t gotten around to playing it yet but the team over at 2KGames did a fantastic job with their character designs.
