Airport Sketches

Unfortunately I foresee a lack of updates over the summer.  I will try my best but with a combination of crappy internet and a broken card reader on my computer it is a little difficult.  I do plan on drawing a lot however so I will try and update as much as I can. These…

Bargue #3 – Progress

I thought it might be cool to make a gif of my 3rd bargue to see the development of the drawing.  This is a gif from almost the beginning to almost the end.  I still have about a week left on it (working late). Click to see the gif! And just a still shot of…

Long Pose

This was a 2 week pose. I feel I learned quite a bit from this one.  Mostly seeing subtle changes in the lights…. which I had a really hard time with.  There are some things I am not happy with, such as the narrow value range (I feel I should have darker areas) and over-all…
