The J.Crew menswear director has just parted ways with the company he so ably repped for these past several years, so there were a lot of articles on his leaving. I thought I'd do a caricature of him since it was so clear n my head how to do him.
Not the best rendering for the pendant, but It's weird now that I've done the figure, to realize that teh technique (crosshatching) won't really work for the featured jewelry that the bust was drawn for! Ah well, regroup...
I saw a pic on Instagram the other day of a guy grouching, and it occurred to me I might want to learn how to draw that pose. Well, I did save the reference pic, but I didn't even look at it to draw this one, just relied on memory, as well as adjusting the pose based on how I place one element after the other.
I actually posted this on Instagram on Easter Sunday, and I think I spent so much time getting it ready for there that I totally forgot to post it yesterday. So this is Easter Sunday's (less religious, somewhat inappropriate) drawing.
I picked out a brush from Kyle’s Inkbox and started sketching, and the American Comics Inker brush kinda determined what I did based on the strokes. Always fun to draw in a style you didn't know you had, but media can do that.
I found a new clothing resource that isn't very popular, but after receiving an order of three items and liking every singe one (as opposed to returning entire orders like I have been lately), I'm quite surprised and stoked... and trying not to buy everything!
After months I am finally finishing up this sketch for the 'client' (quotes mine since it's a freebie job). Starting out by laying down the foundations of some of the jewelry I have to render on this form.
Went to another Drawing new York session tonight, specifically for the mode Michael, who was said to have a phenomenally ripped phsysique—and the rumors were true! Sadly, I was having an off night and did not get the kinds of drawings I thought I would.
Funny how a drawing evolves. His face seemed to indicate some sort of edgy stare, so I figured he needed something edgy to wear to go with his hair., i.e. heels, cropped straight legs and a leather apron. We'll see if I even finish this sketch.
I'm rather into this shade of blue I've been using as 'ink' for the last three days. For whatever reason, it evokes a different kind of feeling in me when I draw with it, as opposed to simple black. That said, all I've done so far is doodle with it, so we'll see...
There's a model making the rounds of the top ecomm websites, and she's got a look that part Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, approachable but young edgy. I started out drawing the villainess Selene from the X-men, but somehow ended up drawing this girl because she's my favorite model on the Shopbop site I've been working on.
Looking forward to seeing the finale of Legion's first season. it's a great quirky show that doesn't necessarily really evoke the original comic book character, but it's damn enjoyable in and of itself. Although Dan Stevens—appealing as he is—lacks David Haller's signature brush cut.
