Warming Up…

I have a LOT of work on at the moment and I kind of have to stay as sharp as I can, no point rolling out of bed, all bleary-eyed and stumbling into the studio to begin working on my commissioned stuff if I’m all tired and rusty.
After a quick cup of coffee this morning I sat down and doodled these, approx. 25 mins of sketching. It’s evident that after I sketched the first page, I was substantially more ‘warmed up’, the second page (with the birds) shows much more confident and more honed lines.
Wildlife books provide great reference for this kind of thing…
btw, I used my new Bosto Kingtee to draw these, (see earlier post for a video demo)

Aslan.

haven’t done much idle sketching lately, I’ve been so busy and I miss it, I rectified that in front of the telly last night with this one…

Dancing Ladies….

I rekindled an old love last night. I used to draw ballerinas all the time in my 20’s, something about the grace of the ladies and the challenge of the lines. I polished off 8 of these pages in an hour. I’ll definately be doing more, great practise!

Hands…

I’ve just been away for a few days, managed to fill a few pages of my sketchbook whilst I was there. Here’re a few pages of hands. (Can never work too much on yer weaknessees…).
