So after revisiting the Holiday card and the elk skull, I decided to sketch another skull. Well at least the top half tonight.
So, some fellow art enthusiasts and I got together and did a Holiday/Christmas Card exchange. I may have spent a little too much time, but then again maybe not. I love how it turned out, and now I am going to draw some more bones tonight I think.
This was a fun drawing I did inspired by some crazy mixed up taxidermy I saw. nothing like a hodgepodge of a creature being taken down by some insects.
Here is a close up of some detail ink work on a sea turtle. Sorry for the blur, crappy phone pic again.
So this little dude kind of started this theme. A praying mantis with a carapace that resembles a rocky substrate, I will try to get a little bit of a better image in here later. Right now working adding some color and a surface underneath.
This beetle has some color added to him and a little bit of rock to stand on. Base ballpoint pen sketch with colored pencil and marker for the rocks. Once again these are just quick things, five minutes here and there throughout a day. First image keyline, p.s. the ballpoint pens I have been using are grade A crap. I need some Bic Roundsticks....
So, I finally got around to adding some shots of a few sketches as of late. A lot of quick stuff, mostly done in the evening or during some down time. Don't judge too harshly my scanner sucks, loses ant color, so most of these came from my Instagram account.
This first one is a little sketch of a little dragon and a little snail. Working on shading and texture with ballpoint.
More ball point pen, we were discussing rpg's and weapons, thus the scythe and dragon skull.
Here is a sketch with color and shading. Colored pencil practice here. Once again a crappy phone pic. I am going to work on getting better shots of these with my Nikon, and all future sketches.
