Monthly Posting

I'm trying to keep the tradition of updating once a month here with a new post. Nothing too exciting, just some sketches I did of people in front of the movie theater or in various coffee shops around town.



Obviously I'm no Christophe Blain, but these are some of the best drawings I've done lately. I drew them on paper with a ball point pen. No Cinitiq or Photoshop. It's a refreshing change to use somewhat traditional media.

People sit and stand in a lot of different ways. It's been kind of fun to try and capture their poses. I've been finding that I can't help but draw this stuff more on the realistic side for some reason. When my brain goes into "observation" mode, cartooning tends to get diminished in the process. That's something I'd like to work on changing.

I've been feeling kind of down about my artwork lately, hopefully I'll be feeling better about things by next month's post.

I like the seated positions a lot. They look so lost in thought, I wonder what they'er thinking about.

Saved these as soon as I saw them. Found myself coming back to them for reference while I'm drawing, reminding myself to hit those shapes and lines with flow.

These are great loose gesture drawings, Justin. I totally understand about struggling not to get realistic. I'm the same way! Practice makes us perfect, right? Looks like you are on the right track.

I don't know Justin, those "work at home India" spam-links are tempting to follow. I might not be able to resist.

Speaking of which: Drawings? Where? When?

(Someone has to harass you about this, you know.)

Justin Hunt said...

I know. I've been lagging. Work has kept me seriously busy, and I've been seriously slacking off on doing personal stuff.

I'll try to get something up sometime soon.
