it’s that fantastic time of the month again, known as sketch night! again, hosted at the great Geek Easy of A Comic Shop, i’m joined by Wheezy and Chibar. tonight’s model is a burlesque model and goes by Kza Von Addams.
with each of these sketch nights, i try to practice a particular skill. for this month, i was trying to go a bit more extreme and exaggerated with my art, ala Skottie Young. as you’ll see, i think i failed that goal miserably. that’s ok, as long as i have a drawing utensil in my, it’s all good.
let’s start off with these 30 second sketches. instead of the Copic Sketch marker, i’m using a Copic 0.5 multiliner.
followed quickly with 1 minute sketches. the model was moving quite a bit, but still good.
for the first 5 minute sketch, i got a bit frustrated with my lack of ability to capture the pose and even the emotion quickly enough. i thought a change up of tool would help, and i liked my third attempt with the Copic sketch marker.
for the lone 10 minute sketch, i was all over the place. i thought i’d start off with thick pencils to get the form first, but i quickly grew frustrated with where i was going. got to some inks, but not much.
tonight’s challenge was to incorporate a peacock into the picture! even though i had drawn one before, apparently it’s been too long because when i started drawing it, it looked more like a turkey!
the night concluded with two final 15 minute sketches. i took liberties with this time to just work on some faces. i desperately wanted to capture more of her emotion. i know for every line i drew on her face added like 5 years to her age, but i’m experimenting! as always, though, lots of fun, especially with friends.
