Had a vision of a puggerfly, so I had to draw it.

Walk up a snowy hill inspired by the recent East Coast weather.

Left: Drew some of the drawing supplies I use the most. The eraser and the sharpener were the toughest, and I mis-spaced the centimeters on the ruler. But I like the way it turned out. A lot better than what I was capable of when I started.

Right: Didn’t have too much inspiration for that day’s drawing, so started doodling some spaghetti. I liked the way it looked when I started it, so tried to give it a little bit of a head shape. Not exactly, there were no eyes, nose or mouth purposely drawn, but I tried to give a skull shape. I wish some of the lines were cleaner, but I had a lot of fun drawing this one, and wouldn’t mind trying another similar drawing.

Some afternoon drinks at a Belgian pub. Tough to draw the bubbles, as they’re lighter than the liquid, should have cross hatched the beer instead.

A drawing of a famous singer, that I won’t admit to who it was supposed to be, because I don’t think the likeness is very strong. The eye is too dark, and the lips are off, but I do like how the beard colours and shading came out.

Changed the perspective up for these two car drawings. Lower one is the view from inside an VW R32 (as seen from Forza 2, ha), top one is just a photo I found online, but attempted to draw from the arm, rather than from the wrist. Didn’t rest my hand on the page, only touched with the marker.

Left: A beetle from a reference photo. I was more concerned with getting the cross-hatching surrounding the beetle right than I was the beetle itself. I was originally going to do a jellyfish, but didn’t find a reference I liked, so settled for the beetle. I think it turned out ok.

Right: Another attempt at a character from no reference. I really don’t like it. The posture is off, the face is off, the hair is REALLY off, which is why I added the barber pole. Can’t like everything I guess :)

I feel like I need a lot more practice drawing bodies from different angles, and complete faces. Tried two here. A wet man in the rain, and an elderly Russian woman

Tried to draw a hand from a reference photo I took of my own hand. The palm came out too long, and the fingers too short, but I like the detail.

The right, I kind of went with the theme and tried to draw a face that was long in the nose. I think it kind of came out like Spock :)

Didn’t have much inspiration on the left drawing. just seeing how the different markers interacted. Kept with the straight lines and drew my front door for the right hand drawing. Like how the curtain came out.

A couple of drawings inspired by the style of Frank Quitely. Left is an original. I sketched out the pose a little in pencil on a separate page, I wanted to get the limb positions and scale correct. The hands are a little messy, and face is basic, but I’m pleased with it. Right is part of Jupiter’s Legacy #2 cover. Didn’t have much time for this one, but after the crumby hands in the left one, I wanted to do a hand drawing.

Drunkly doodled the left page. Continued the idea on the right page, but tried to be cleaner.
