Sketching again

Sketching is so important. I feel like I have no clue what I'm doing sometimes. But after a few warmup doodles or sketches, it hits me and it feels natural again. Here are a few recent drawings from my sketchbook.



These are just quick observational sketches from photos, just to pass time and keep 'limber.' They are done with Prismacolor markers, fine-liner pens and Faber-Castell PITT brush pens on a simple white sketchbook from Barnes & Noble (good prices on sketchbooks).




Please excuse the lack of posts here, recently. I have been traveling a lot, and it's been quite hectic, however both New York Comic Con and Orlando MegaCon went far better than I had hoped. Thanks to everyone who dropped by, I'll have more photos and stories very soon.

Lovely brush work. I have one of those nice Japanese Pentel brush pens but I still can't get the hang of it.

Yeah, hauling yourself past those first few creaky sketches of the day is a pain ;)

Wonderful work, as always, and great to see you blogging again after an interval.

And also, a thank you for extending your Sketch Infectus pre-order offer, which I had originally missed (I was gutted!) but have now been able to take advantage of, thanks to the delivery delay!
