An oldie but goodie...

A while ago, I picked up a book called Subway Sketches which is filled with...yeah you guessed it, sketches of people that a bunch of artists drew while riding the subway.

Anyway, since then I've been finding myself opening the book a lot and always finding inspiration to draw. In one part of the book, it shows simple steps of drawing the profile of a person:
  1. cranium
  2. jaw
  3. neck
  4. ear
  5. hair
  6. eye
  7. mouth
  8. nose
  9. chin

So here's a page I did of a bunch of random people I made up.

Batgirl and Two-Face

Back at the Fan Expo Canada here in Toronto there was a number of sketch duels with big-time rad artists. The rules of the duels were to sketch a character chosen by the audience and finish in an hour. At the end the sketches would be raffled off. So the real winners of the duels were the audience.

I attended almost all of them (missed one cuz I overslept) and kept note of the characters that were drawn. I did this because I wanted to see how I'd do drawing a character in an hour.

Both done in blue pencil because I ran out of time.

Cassie Hack

Pin up Cassie Hack of Hack/Slash.

Really dig this series. Especially because Slasher Flicks scared me as a kid and those b@$t@rd Slashers finally get their come-uppins from her.
The pose is referenced cuz I'm still working on anatomy. And I gotta admit, I found out I love dressing goth chicks. It was a lot of fun deciding she what she was gonna wear. :)

So colouring this took a while to because I spent way too much time trying to decide how to colour it. I thought colouring it this way would be simple but it turns out, this took a lot longer than I expected. Mainly because I couldn't decide where the light source should be (I decided with upper-centre. I hope that's what it looks like).

I want to get better at this (colouring/painting/lighting and all that) so critiques are very welcome.

...I still want to add Vlad in this, but that will probably be later...
