I painted this in gouache, then painted over it again in photoshop.

Ive been thumbnailing a lot of little imaginary perspective scenes for fun. I liked this one so i blew it up and quickly painted over it. I think the left side is out of the cone of vision and starting to look wonky.

About an hour and a half of work.

#162 - F22

About an hour sketch. lots of laso tooling and air brushing.

My perspective class really helped me nail the initial sketch quickly.

I also went plein air painting with some friends at Oak Hill Memorial Park.

Prisma Color Pencil

     My usual go to drawing tool for figures is a china marker but could not find one so I tried out a Prisma Color Pencil and instantly fell in love with it.

It's non-messy and dark like a china marker but still provides a nice value range like charcoal. And it flows like butter on smooth newsprint. :D Here's a 20 min pose using it.

Feb Figures

Figures from February

I scanned all these for my first portfolio of the semester for my life drawing class so I figured I'd post em'!

First set are 5 min poses, second are 2 min poses

Leapday sketches

Yesterday my perspective teacher gave a great demo and passed his personal sketchbook around the class. It was all very inspiring. I also picked up a great pen at the student store "Pilot G-Tec-C4" the international version of the fabled Hi-Tec-C pens. So I had to do a bit of sketching.
