Arialla - facial study

Just a study for a drawing I'm trying to work on. It's going to be of a friend's character, so I wanted to make sure the facial features were specific and identifiable. The hair style will be different, but I liked the one in the reference and went with it temporarily.

This study made me realize that I need to do some more realistic facial drawings and implement shading, as it seems I forgot how to.. uhm.. shade. o.0 Now I need to dig up a good photo reference for some practice.. probably one for fabric, too. Time to relearn some Drawing 101.

Yay for drawing on post-its when my sketchbook is one whole foot away!

Post-it sketch

Yup, hard at work.

EDIT: I think this chick is supposed to be a mermaid. I just get that vide from her. Don't some people just give you the mermaid vibe? Mebbe I'll draw it..

Laundry Day

Just a quickie sketch that I went over with in pen. It pretty much sums up my mood every Sunday morning when I am dragged out of bed in order to beat the crowd at the laundromat.

Illustration Friday: Sugary

It's been one of those days where I'm living in a spacey, daydreamy state just thinking and creating in my brain. I had to sneak away from my desk for a while and take a sketchbook break.

I've been making it a point to check out the Illustration Friday site on a regular basis. While I am a day late on this topic (which has had a page reserved in my sketchbook for a few days), I'm glad I finally managed to crank it out. This little guy makes me think of my nephews and how whenever they got a hold of some sugar, they would definitely manifest into little monsters.. heck, they're still like that.

I hope to ink and color this one. I snuck out on a break from work to crank out the drawing, so there's a little refining I want to do when I have time. It's just a relief to finally have it down on paper, after swimming through my brain for a while.

Meanwhile, I am happy to still be working with the John Kerwin Show. I wish it taped more than once a month, because I really dig working in production and the show itself is a lot of fun. Below is last month's episode, which had actor Max Ryan ("Death Race," "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," "Kiss of the Dragon"), and musical guest Colby O'Donis.

I also received a promotion to Production Coordinator, which I am really proud of and happy that I get to do more work on the show. The pay's the same, but now I have more responsiblity!
...Hey, wait a second...
