Forgive the wrinkles and highlights...the paper became warped from so much ink.

Alright...so the top one is a more fleshed out version of the thumbnail from the previous post. I added in some mice. I will do another one on an even larger scale (this one was blown up to 8.5X11) once I have some feed back from my instructors.

Alright...so the top studies are done in red in copic marker and red ball point. The girl is the 2nd of 3 studies...the other two posted earlier. The thumbnail is for an illustration I am working on. And the guy is David Bowie as The Goblin King from Jim Henson's The Labyrinth. His likeness is slightly off still...he needs more hollowed looking cheeks, his eyes are too big, and his hair is a little off kilter...but I am pretty happy with how this technique is shaping up, and also how there is more of a feeling of atmosphere. This one took about 3 hours.
As for the mice...I was just having fun...I may take a few of the characters and inject them into the illustration I am working on, or I may use them for an entirely different series of illustrations...I don't know yet.

...on this page you can see the finished version of the pose...I can see that I made her left foot too big...this is good, because now I can go pack to my earlier phase and see what an incorrect lay-in looks like, so in future studies, I don't make the same mistake. However, I am glad that I made the foot too big, because that means I am addressing another of my problems, which is perspective/foreshortening. So...the mistake isn't too horrible after all haha! I also redid the portrait study...I think it is pretty close as well, but still does not feel like the person...one more study should do it.

Alright...so here are some more studies of women...still pretty simplistic, but I kind of enjoy it for now. I am going to have some more class work soon...just kind of taking a breather for a day. Thank you to everybody who has commented...it really makes me feel good about what I am doing, and I have enjoyed being inspired by all of your art too! Sometimes it seems pointless, but reading peoples' comments who I know I can respect and trust in really validates why I became an artist in the first place...so, thanks again!
Well...back to it...Enjoy!

Alright...so the first drawing in this post is a study of horses from a Lyendecker piece...I placed the figures on them myself.
The other three drawings are from my conceptual environmental design class...these are tiny drawings (thumbnails)...to give an idea of scale...each of these pages of drawings is about 8 1/2 by 11...one drawing fits about the size of a credit card. We have reference for all...some are direct efforts to copy...some are inspired by a pile of junk...some are completely imagined. They are about 10 minutes a piece...I will have more soon too.
Well...until the next time (imaginary audience)...Enjoy!
