These are some color studies for an illustration I'm doing. I think I prefer the bottom study on the first page. Any suggestions?

More experiments from Drawing on Location.

These are some drawings I did in water soluble graphite. That stuff is super fun and I'll be working with it more.

A couple sketches...

As the title says, these are just a couple sketches I've done over this term. I've been rather busy, so I have sketched as much as I would've like. I'll try to change this.

Drawing on Location--Broadside Pencil Drawing

These are a few broadside pencil drawings, a looser technique that I'm fond of and would like to continue using more of. The ones in red are from the Chinese Gardens again, while the other two are from Union Station and the US Customs House.

Drawing on Location--The Chinese Gardens

Some drawings I did on location at the Chinese Gardens, went there with Lee White's Drawing on Location Class. In these ones I was working with India ink and a waterbrush, experimenting again. I like the results and would like to play with this method more (it was suggested I look into sumi-e painting, I think that would be fun).

A few pages of Quicksketch work--Vehicles

One of the best classes I've had at AI is Quicksketch with Lee White(you can find a link to his blog on the right). Actually, I can say that for all of the classes I've taken with him. Anyway, these of pages are of vehicles from reference. I used this class to experiment a lot, and I took a leaf out of the Lee's book and tried to use some graphic shapes to give the objects some space. This can make a world of difference, the perfect example of this being the page with the blimps and hot air balloons, it was really pretty boring before I added that.

Are we good?

So I was watching comedy one night, and I hear a story that has to be one of the funniest things I've heard in stand-up. This was the resulting sketch. If you're interesting in the stand up, watch it here: Julian Mccullough--Magical Old . It so much more awesome than the sketch.

The First of Many

So, the first post on this blog, with many more to come (hopefully, haha). This is a sketch I've had in my sketcbook for awhile now. It was inspired by the first episode of  Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Since drawing this, I've really wanted to experiment with the style I had going on in the upper right girl, I like how she turned out the most. Anyway, this was pencil, pen, prismacolor and copic marker.
