I have been trying to do reference studies of faces at least every other day. After doing a couple I pick a pose and build it up a bit more and force myself to color it. I don’t hate coloring but after finding my lines in a rough sketch I really want to move on.
Took sometime to finish up the end of a sketchbook I have in the pile. Very excited Attack on Titan is now back I started a couple of sketches and should drop some color in them when I have some free time.
Super busy lately I need to get back to a more regular posting schedule. Otherwise post like these exist with 10+ illustrations from the last month all on one post.
Still having a blast with Procreate but my drawing time is still the fastest on paper but with digital it’s getting much better.
Lately it’s been a mix of Sketch Dailies late night illustrations and some personal for fun weekend stuff.

I am really trying to get into the habit of sketching something walking away and getting the base lines down before illustrating it. It’s true when I come back to the line work I notice a few errors that would have messed me up later on while adding color to it.

The end of the year is always a great time to catch up with friends and just draw 24/7. This is my last batch of sketches for 2015. I can’t wait to see what 2016 has waiting around the corner.

I can’t believe till this year I have never seen Sylvester Stallone’s Cobra. This film holds everything I love about 80’s action movies in one. Halfway though the film I did a couple of sketches and this one is my fave quick little profile.
I did this a couple of days prior to the new season of Luther airing on television. Next Elba sketch I do I need to grey up the facial hair a bit.
It feels like every year I do a Storm illustration. I guess this is my annual Storm for 2015.
The other day Kotaku posted an article about Nintendo creating a female Link character called Linkel. I loved the character design image they released for her, I had to do my interpretation.
No digital work mostly brush pen scans from last week. Quick layout with a blue pencil then all inked up with the Pentel brush pen.
Wolfsbane from Marvel Comics for Sketch Dailies
Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, I was reading about the trailer synopsis that premiered at the Disney D23 expo. I wanted to do a quick illustration.
The other day I came across a site that features Costume Design. After a little research I had to try doing a character heavily based on authentic armor design and construction.
Weekend illustration ref HERE.
I am not familiar with Marvel’s Devil Dinosaur, but I love the character sketches of the heroine Moon Girl. After seeing the news that night I had to do a little something.
A couple of drawing blocks lately, trying to get back into my routine again. I have some rough ideas for a small series to do I just need to focus on it…if only focusin existed (Obscure Simpsons reference). Good news is I picked up a new scanner my line work is much sharper now, so hyped.
