What’s down there?

March 16th, 2010 No comments

Now that I think about it the title sounds dirty. I’m inclined to think he’s looking at an ice cream cone rather than pubescent changes in appearance. Of course, I really don’t know what that means since I don’t even know what this guy is. Maybe he’s not a he at all. He, or she, could be an asexual earthworm or something. So he’s an it. Or a (s)he? Either way it’s cute.

Robo-Shrek

February 7th, 2010 No comments

SketchDuJour-2010-02-07I watched Shrek tonight while babysitting a couple of kids. I guess I just had Shrek on the brain, but I wanted to try something different with him. I keep trying to look for my “style”. Robots are definitely part of it, hence the Robo-Shrek.

Enjoy it. Comment on it. Later taters.

Mimicking Art

February 5th, 2010 No comments

GhostiesHello all. I recently purchased a Casper comic so that I could mimic the art in it. The art is by Pedro Delgado. I love this guy’s stuff.

Anyway, I’m gonna redraw this stuff for a bit and see if I can learn a thing or two. Sorry to disappoint anyone that’s expected something new and original from me. I gotta break out of the box I’m currently stuck in.

I love the teeth, mouth and eyes in these guys. Menacing yet laughable.

Stealer Elf

Stealer ElfYou know this guy. He’s part of the secret underground network of baddies that comes into your house and steals stuff. Like socks. But not the whole pair. Just one.

You would think this guy and his “kind” would only have one foot since they don’t need but the one sock. They just sit back in the shadows and laugh at us while they enjoy a different sock on each of their teensy tootsies.

“Honey, have you seen that (insert item name here)?” Of course she hasn’t. It’s been abducted by this guy. Or, at least, one of his pals.

What a jerk. I think this one’s name is Sal. He looks like a Sal. Shady and half stupid.

Here’s a few sketches from today. I like the jelly bean guy.

I think I’m at a spot now where I’m struggling and I hope it’s the kind that I can push through and come out better on the other side.

I know I haven’t been militant about posting everyday like I was, but I’m still keeping at it.

Surprised Super Hero

I’ve been practicing drawing people and this is where I land. Although I am by no means a master of the human figure I find drawing it boring. It’s been done to death. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate what other artists do with it, but I tend to have more fun and be more successful with “non-traditional” shaped people.

I think I may spend some more time with my more cartoon flavored renderings for a while. Drawing the human form feels more like a chore. Necessary, but not how I want to spend my time.

Thanks for lookin’.
