Day 27 · 03 Sept 09 · Ninja

September 3rd, 2009 No comments


I think from this point forward I’m going to be uploading loose sketches as well as “finished work”. I’m tired of typing “Day X” over and over again too, so I think the title will suffice. Sorry to all you ” consistency nuts” out there. I need to figure out a way that for WordPress to append the day (or post #) in the title automatically, because, on a good day, I can only count to 11.

Any way, have you ever seen Well, a bunch of ridiculously talented artists draw a different character each week and post it. I’d like to eventually become part of that crowd so I thought I’d just start drawing some of the subjects they’ve drawn to see how it goes. I chose the ninja. And you can tell the influence of the drawergeeks in my lower-left triangle ninja.

I thought the best way to depict the ninja is by drawing a forest of bamboo, because they’re sneaky like that. Plus if you actually saw a ninja you’d be dead within the next few seconds anyway. Maybe it’s just my way of getting out of a challenging sketch.

On another note. I attended my first Drink and Draw meeting tonight. I met some cool artists and we talked about drawing, other artists, techniques and general stuff. A good time was had by all. Or at least by me and that’s all that really matters in the end.
