Hey lads, hope ye all had a lovely Christmas! Noel got me these class copic markers for Christmas, wohoo! So I got stuck into them for this, my Christmas peace illustration! It's a photo of the drawing, so not the best quality, i'll see how it scans as well.

Quick sketch on Christmas morning.Thought it might turn into something more substantial but the eating and drinking kinda got in the way... :D

Pencil n Paper

Haven't done a sketch in such a long time - probably over worked the shading on the top one and some of the lighter marks didn't come through so well on the scan but have to say thoroughly enjoyed doing it - in front of the fire with a baileys coffee last night ; )
The second set are really quick ones just an excercise to get the eye back in training.

More Life Drawing

So MORE life drawing, full figure this time, finding it as difficult as ever!

The top one is about 1/2 way through the class, I actually prefer it to the final thing, typically! Didn't have time to finish colouring it, wanted to take a picture of the model and finish it at home but thought that might be weird?!

AND... a photo of the lovely crayons / pastels!

Sam Sans Twitch

I'm a little on the rusty side so be gentle...
This is Sam from the epic Sam & Twitch Comic series.
He was drawn from life so to speak - see?, action figures are useful!

Might add Twitch next week....

Santa Goes off on one.

Close up of face - the sketchy effect came through quite nice.

Life Drawing

This is from my life drawing class, done in expensive-but-worth-it Conté crayons (love them!) and those cheap-but-nice mungyo pastels.
