I've been studying comic styles and playing with new brushes. Here's a little sketch with this brush: Stumpy Pencil.

Back to Basics

When I first started speed sketching I did quick gestures/poses. I went back to that today using this online reference tool: http://reference.sketchdaily.net/

These are 2 min. each.

On a tangent, I always see artists post these neatly organized, perfect pages of figural gestures where every figure is exactly the same size and they fit together like puzzle pieces. Am I the only one to wonder how that happens??

Cool Hair

~1 hr sketch of a woman with cool short hair, photo reference. Started with the hair so I didn't get very good feature placement or likeness, but it was fun!

Sartorialist 2 + imaginary gestures

A quick sketch based on a sartorialist photo (10 min?), and some pose gestures from imagination (~5 min each) - practicing building the human form from the basics.

Sartorialist 1

I'm doing some studies from photos by http://www.thesartorialist.com/ . I like that his photos are of normal people in natural poses, and frequently are full-length shots.

I really like this sitting pose...quiet, relaxed, but confident.

I like the way her hair is falling and those huge cuffs on her sleeves.
