Oh hai! Back when I acquired this felty pen in September, I drew this sketch in Bryan Lee O’Malley aka Scott Pilgrim style and colored it with Copics. Added extra texturing on the clothes with Watercolor Pencils.
You can see from my process I don’t bother with pencil and go straight to ink. Is there a grand reason? Well, you could say I’m just aiming to ship more things.
Three set San Francisco sketches! Drawn in Illustrator with the Charcoal Pencil brush, 1 – 4px weights used, minimal amount of 15% opacity shading for the depth.
Pretty pleased. Planning to set myself up to do this a lot more in the future.
P.S. You can Like it on dribbble, ;)
Something about being Lost in Translation with a coffee type drink waiting for the next flight ignites the sketch.
3 sketchbooks and at some point I used a sketchbook to plan another sketchbook.
Also art tools are limited and this post was edited with a phone, hope it doesn’t look too janky. I may also can’t tell cause I slept 2 hours x2 in the last 24 hours…
In the darker hours of life, seek imagination.
Let the rest go.
Make a mess.
And, maybe clean it up afterward. [Not Pictured]
SBP. More progress! Have you ever seen the backside of a marker piece? Sometimes the backside is as interesting as the frontside. Life adage or something, right?
Doodles. Check out this haunting motion piece, Danielle. I sketched that while watching those 5 minutes. She really does have that gaze. The happy little tree sketch is inspired by my Kinokuniya tote.
Supplies. A hoard of various papers from Flax! A little Moomin who will now live on my traveling pouch of sketch materials. Thanks Liz!
I acquired this new pen and I’m not ashamed to admit that when offered a Baileys Coffee I goddamn took it. So, top-to-bottom: Bryan Lee O’Malley study, Kaori Wakamatsu study, beginnings of Poignantly Ordinary (a webcomic I intend to start), and some lettering. Black and white and back to the basics playing with line widths to convey depth.
I found some sketches whilst in Tokyo I never published.
