Looking into the heavens.

I was hoping the cross hatching on the right would be dark enough to distinguish between the moon details. I think it kind of works.

Really happy with how both of these turned out.

Left: Pig and scarecrow. Pig is based off some Geof Darrow work (big influence). Gave the panel some text to create an element of story.

Right: A sunflower. This drawing taught me that details matter. I had the outline for all the petals and leafs and stem, and it just didn’t look good. Once I added the grains in the pedals and more details everywhere else, it actually looked like a sunflower. I was going to try and colour it, but I like it the way it is.

Left: Sketch of Venus de Milo. Got to see this in real life last year. Great statue, loved sketching it. The hair and eyes were the hardest. The face should be a little longer and the chin a bit more chubby.

Right: Sketch of The Birth of Venus by Botticelli. This one was way harder. Her body and neck are very elongated. I tried getting it right with pencil first, but I couldn’t get the left leg right, and the face needs work. I don’t think I scaled it right on the page, which hurt the rest of the drawing.

Left: Don’t know what this came out of. Just started doodling a beardy guy, and this came out. Lasers.

Right: Another perspective drawing of my seat at the dinner table in Palm Springs.

Left: View from my chair by the pool in Palm Springs

Right: Tried a sketch of a classic. Really liked following the subtleties in the curves. The hair could have been better, and some of the proportions are probably off, but I’ll probably try some more statue sketches.

Left: Peggy Olson from one of the last Mad Men episodes. Loved her character, and loved the visual of this scene.

Right: Not a lot of time to sketch, so tried one of my fatter markers to draw a mountain man.

Left: Started watching the Netflix Daredevil series. First two episodes were pretty good, like the beginning costume. Found a guy crouching through flickr and tried to copy the pose, cleanly. Wish I would have added more buildings.

Right: Always wanted to do the space needle. Didn’t really scale this one correctly to get the whole thing, but it is an interesting structure. Might try it again sometime.

Left: Drew Robert Durst. His eyes are very interesting. Dark black pools.

Right: Drew a bunch of bottles at a restaurant I had lunch at

Left: City scape from the water. Based off a page in a comic called The Massive. I really liked the wave and cloud pattern and tried to emulate it.

Right: Tried to messily sketch the lead from Silicon Valley. Not great.

Left: Portrait of a pug from instagram.

Right: Character sketch based off something Jim Lee posted. Black and white don’t make it pop as much as the source. Some shading would have been better.
