New sketch -demi

I don't draw nearly enough Demi. I liked how this sketch was turning out so I'm going to turn it into more Marker art. I've got a roughish BG in there that hardly scanned at all, but I'll flesh it out more.

I got some product samples from versicolour in the mail today. I'm going to give the sketch cards a go, later on.

Seems like a  neat company with some swell products :D

anyways, time for Dinner. Just wanted to share.

Gift for ClockWorkSky

Clock work sky did 2 drawings for me recently, so I thought I'd do at least one for her. Seemed only fair, right? This is my Abade and her Agapi. 


I coloured this live on Livestream today. I posted on Marker Guru with the embedded videos, so I wont do it again here.

More art - Penelope (not work safe)

I did a couple marker sketches today of Penelope. She's probably one of my most under appreciated characters. She's stunning and has a nice costume design ( in my opinion) and she's sleek and fun to draw.

I almost never draw my characters nude, and while I was originally going to colour a waterfall, or shower or something behind her, I opted for something more abstract since I didn't want that classic tahitian beauty stereotype. LOL
The other one of her sitting was just me experimenting with a curvy animation style in a sketch and decided to colour her since I had so few coloured pics of her. it's very similar to a drawing I did before of her, so it's kinda like a redraw.
changed her shoes too.
anyways, thought someone might like em :)

LiveStream - Live colouring

Tuesday June 22 at 12pm PST I'll be colouring an image of Abade live on my live stream. please come check it out if you have time. I'll be leaving the recording up there if I can, so you can watch the recording later if you want to :)
this will be my first time doing a live stream so even if you can't attend, let me know if you're interested in these sort of things. The response I receive now will dictate whether i take the time to do these again.

Abade sunning on rock

So I finished it! Yay! All in Copic Markers. First time doing a orange sky like that. I bet it could have been softer with the airbrush but I experimented a bit and this was the best vibrancy I got... so ya.

anyways, Enjoy :>

W.I.P. - Abade sun rock

Thought I'd throw up a Work in Progress of a marker drawing. I'm doing Abade sunning herself on a rock.
So far I've done most of the rocks and most of her, the sky only has a base layer. The sky is going to be a deep deep orange with glowing yellow clouds. like bright sunset...I deliberately didn't crop it so you could see my scrumbly edges. I made marks where the eventual crop might be, but sometimes it's nice to see the scrumblies.

The moss is 3 colours of green over top a yellow base. I blended them in a lot. I then used a piece of terry cloth misted with blender an dabbed it on for a little more texture in the rocks and the moss.

I'm going to finish it up this weekend I hope. I have to buy my other markers. Copics don't have a lot of oranges in the range.
Anyways, thought you'd be interested maybe... :)

Sketch Page

So, I meant to upload this a couple days ago, but for some reason the thought of scanning it was really off putting... it only takes a couple seconds, so I don't know what that was about. LOL.

So, I had to wait a couple hours at the Quay before going to a play (Diane's Daughter Gen was in Sweeney Todd at her highschool) and I was having a hard time drawing anything, so I started drawing the album cover displayed on my Zune,  which was Gaga. and then the other little heads sort of ... filled in the rest of the page.

Top left: Jack making a creepy face.
middle top: Nakia, I'd like to move her eyes but, whatever
below Gaga: Penelope
Below Jack: Bala
Below Nakia: Sarah
Below Sarah: Peni and Victor
Below Penelope: Random guy.

I left this one a little bigger so when you click to enlarge you can see my sketch lines.. if you want to. To me that's always the best part of sketches, but I know not everyone is so into the organic mechanics (as I call it) of drawing like I am.

Oh, I do all my sketches with a blue mechanical Colour Eno pencil by the way.
Anyways, hope someone enjoys my sketches :)

I might post some photos of the piles if cast Tiks and Abades I have later today, Hee hee :)

Drinks in the great hall by `guruubii

So I finished it :) Its all done in Copic Markers. I used some blender techniques for some texture, but you cant see it so well in the scan. Oh well. :p

Edlyn, Jack and Nakia at the Hall having a drink.
In the background, Seth, Random Guy, Random girl, Pehny, and Sarah

I did something new with this one. I inked the BG and BG characters in grey and then did a few layers of french grey before colouring, and coloured in muted colours to push the BG back more, and the foreground characters are inked in black, with fully saturated colours
I think it was pretty effective
