YES! the return of sketch night! these days it takes place at the very cool Geek Easy, located inside one of Orlando’s best comic shops, A Comic Shop. i’m afraid i can’t expound too much on what the model dressed up as, but i assume it’s an anime character. how did i know? because she had a 8 foot long sniper rifle prop! we start off below with 30 second sketches, using a black Copic sketch marker.
tonight’s model goes by Arsenic Arson. and all night long, she didn’t break a smile! very intense and very cool. below are 1 minute sketches.
so, here’s where i begin to experiment more. the last sketch night i did, i focused on body frame and posture. tonight, i just, well, do whatever. between using crosshatch shadings and just trying to elaborate more on features to make it more comic-book-y. below are the 5 minute sketches, done in Copic multiliner 0.1.
next is a 15 minute sketch but i had problems with my trusty mechanical pencil! eventually i gave up on fixing it to proceed with the sketch. Copic multiliner 0.5.
tonight’s sketch challenge is to incorporate robot dinosaurs. i tried to incorporate some of what the model was projecting. 15 minutes with 5 minutes of touchup.
and the night ends with 2 more 15 minute sketches. i really like the below images. i was starting to get tired and fearing my artwork was degrading. but i think i pulled it off and was very happy with the whole night. i think my morning sketches have been really helping to get better at drawing in general.
