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.
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.
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.
Sam Wilson aka Captain America for the 4th of July weekend
I have been busy the last two weeks so this post is a bit of a catch up. The reason for all the Avengers stuff is because my daily practice site Sketch Dailies did an all Avengers daily topic posting. Along with that a couple of reference sketches.
