Life Drawing. Model: Ivana Vanderfluff. 3 mins & 5 mins respectively.
The better efforts from tonight’s Dr Sketchy’s session. I’m really happy with these in particular, although the other two models were also brilliant. We got some balloon popping by Angelique Dominique, and an incredible phoenix-like costume from Raven Noir.
I was hoping to show some of these, but I ended up having some issues with my pencil (I got H replacement leads instead of B) so they are a bit faint and scratchy.
Fingers, thumbs and lower arms are still beyond my grasp but this was some really good practice.
I think pencils are definitely starting to win me over again. Sorry, Copics.
Another pic of a hexapod resting. This time on a windy northern healthand of whiss. Fentil is tidally locked with its parent, Olympus, meaning that one side is always facing it (like our moon always has one side facing Earth). Because of this, Olympus hangs permanently in the sky on the inner-facing hemisphere, waxing and waning throughout the ‘day’
When Fentil passes behind Olympus, the sun is eclipsed completely in a ‘global night’.
You guys might recognize some of the thumbnails and a preview from a post awhile back… here’s the finished piece! :D
Done for the charity artbook Memorieal which recently gave us the go-ahead to upload the illustrations we did earlier this year. As a kid I had a flying/gliding bear species based off this stuffed animal (I named them “Pinky Bears” since I was an original precious snowflake). They were the mortal enemies of eagles, and they primarily ate fish — which they stored underground in burrows. Since that’s what bears do.
Is this one about to grab one or shake its fin? WE MAY NEVER KNOW.
