Left side: Just an idea I had to draw some smiley balls from different angles. Actually drew the face on a soccer ball and turned it to make sure I had the correct perspective :)

Right Side: Been reading Multiversity, just finished the Thunderworld issue (drawn by Cameron Stewart), with the Marvel family. I always liked Captain Marvel visually, but never really read many comics with him in it. Wish I could get the scale and placement right for full bodies so that they fit on the page. Had to cut off his hands and feet. Pretty happy with it, except for his head and left arm, which should be brought in closer to the head.

Found a couple of references on google images of some bodies with definition. I like the way the male one turned out, the picture didn’t extend any further down, so I ignored the hands. The female one looks a bit weird at the head, shoulder, and hands. I started the torso out too big, and didn’t have enough room for the head, so it got scrunched. Also, misplaced the left hand, and redrew it over the old one. The joys of working with ink :)

Left photo: Lack of motivation that day. Drew a chair and rug from my living room. No Shading, just lines. Working on correct angles and perspective. It doesn’t exactly look like the real thing, but close :)

Right photo: Drew Jon from a reference photo, and messed up the shading. I really like the face, it came out pretty accurate. The body and arms are a bit off though.

Had some spare time on the weekend, so tested out some gifts I got for Christmas: Some new pencils, a new Moleskine book, and some coloured pencils. Came out pretty well, used a reference photo from Flickr.

Left side: Drew a bird from a reference photo on Flickr. I like how it turned out, but the bird was not staring as intensely in the photo.

Right side: Tried to recreate a character from Black Science, but came out more like Buzz Lightyear. Played with some markers and pencil crayons. Not super happy with it.

Left: Spider-man I found on tumblr. Like the technique, so tried to recreate it.

Right: I’ve been listening to a World War I podcast, and decided to draw a German soldier. Hard to find good reference photos from back then!

Left side is inspired by Keith Haring.

Right side is sourced of a Galactus image I found on the internet. I always liked Galactus visually as a character. There’s a lot of stuff going on there.

Recreated some Greg Capullo panels from Batman #37. I’ve been lukewarm about some of the stories, but Endgame is a great arc. I really like how the Joker panel turned out, but the Batman panel is a little off on the head shape.

Went to my childhood for inspiration here. Played countless hours on both of these systems.

Left Drawing: A picture taken of me at the Southern tip of New Zealand. Tried more dot-shading, and attempted to fill out the scene, rather than just draw the subject. I think it came out well, but I gave myself a unibrow!

Right Drawing: Listened to a great short podcast from the Memory Palace about Samuel Morse and it inspired me to do a portrait of him. I did my grade 5 science project on Morse Code, so I was a little familiar with him already, but I didn’t know that in addition to inventing the Telegraph, and Morse Code, he was originally an established portrait artist.
