A few quick sketches

Yikes! It's been a long time since I posted anything here. For a while I was focusing strictly on comics and other Little Green Dog goodness, and then I got really sick (still have this nagging cough,) but I'm getting antsy to start drawing and painting for DDJ again.

Actually, I've been able to paint some concept art and matte paintings for a project at work recently, which is cool but unfortunately I can't show any of it because of the usual NDAs. But I did get to do some personal doodlin' yesterday while waiting for 3D renders to complete. Nothing fancy, just some warm ups.

I'm reading a book called Mastering the Craft of Painting by Angelo John Grado, which has some interesting ideas that I never thought about before, like the relationship between the jawline and the hips.

Here's another page of similar doodles.

There is a bonus sketch in the above drawing: if you look closely, you can see my daughter's doodles coming through from the back side of the paper.

Finally, I tried applying the idea to an action pose.

Okay, back to drawing Brudders now.

(Pencil on paper.)
