Eric Clapton

I started this drawing the night before and spent most of the day coloring it with my copic markers. I am trying to stick to this daily drawing thing which is working out mostly, but the I still think I need to be faster.

What's there to say about this, I love Eric Clapton, he's an awesome musician and one of the guys who really got me into blues music besides, Jimi Hendrix, BB King, and Led Zeppelin. Previously I've mainly drawn straight on portraits but one meaning of doing these daily drawings are to to find alternate ways to draw, alternate subjects and viewpoints. So I did a torso shot, with color.

I'm not going to upload a process like I did with the Swanson, but I think looking I that, you can see how I got this. Anyway, thinking about what to do tomorrow....

Daily sketch

Many of my drawings have been portraits and while that's is all well and good I believe as someone trying to do narrative drawings I should do more of those.

Happy New Year Hulk

I wanted to take the opportunity to use my copics again and make another Superhero drawing

It's been a while since I've really looked intently at this artist but there's never been a doubt about my admiration of his work, Yoshitaka Amano for those who don't see who I'm trying to draw here, has been the character and setting designer for most of the Final Fantasy games. He's also the creator of Vampire Hunter D. He's a prolific artist who started very young and has become a figure head in the Japanese art community as well as worldwide. His elegant brush strokes and use of patten remind me of the master Gustav Klimt and the inclusion of that style and attention to video game character makes him a very important figure to myself as a young artist and frankly as a lover of old jrpgs. P.S Brushes are dope.

Ron Swanson

Many moons past, I declared that would illustrate the Mighty edifice of Ron Swanson, portrayed by the very talented Nick Offerman Nick Offerman. My people, I give you, Swanson. Hopefully, I've done him justice, if not there's always next time...

Today's Drawing: Louie
...So I'm going to try to do a decent drawing everyday to show. If that wasn't already obvious. Today was, meh, but I still have some time to go before the day is done. Speed is important but quality more so. The drawing I did before this was...shatty. lol. Thats why its not in ink, but I felt that with my new marker set I should flex them out a little see what I'm working with. yada yada yada, moral of the story is do some warm up drawings before you work on something you want to work to finish, it helps.
