Not that I do oodles of doodles but I do the occasional sketch in my notebook - but I liked this one even t its a bit phallic - or is that inverse phallas - google says its "yoni".
Anyway was god to play with the markers and brush pen.
I am still looking at mechs -looking at other amazing artists and drawing from them (literally), and the I have to get this into 3D concepting land - -but now I am starting to "see" - couple of marker sketches from my sketchbook - oh analog I love you.
Happy new year - I have joined a Facebook sketch group (drawing a day challenge - time limited to 45 min), a good way to start the year. Aiming to be away from my machine/desk during lunch this year so hopefully most will be paper.
Up first is Bethial Prime and below that the world eater - Nidhogg.
Self portrait day today - part of a Facebook group submission. Its been along time since I have done a selfie - 20 years!?? feck! - The last time it was in guash on illustration board, now its a PS job based off today's webcam pic - looking kinda urrg (appropriate since yesterday was Halloween) and its 4 am in the morning when I started the thing.
My digital paint techniques need work ( tonal variation- better lighting - I blame my web cam pic :P).
This November I hope to take a page out of the other half's book (she is a machine)and crack on with some new pieces as well as put some older ones to bed - time to level up once more.
Anatomy ecorche study of classical marble sculpture.
I completed my anatomy on-line studies with Scott Eaton about two weeks a go.
Overall the course was pretty intense - some people are still working through the material and I know I will need to revisit sections again to reinforce my understanding of human anatomy.
So just a quick post of one of the results of the course - an ecorche of a classical marble statue from the Louvre (one of the three in his exercises). I do have to go back re-watching some of his video sections, specifically the fore-arms and upper back videos while I still have my video subscription as I know these areas of understanding are still a little hazy.
It has certainly made me level up in my understanding of anatomy - even though I had a lot of the books Scott mentioned I hadn't spent the time in understanding them or doing draw over ecorche studies.
I hope to post some additional ecorche studies of the human body soon - who knows maybe even with the Latin names of the muscle groups, it certainly will help me remember them.
VFX artist and sometimes animator, this is my blog.
