Halloween Movie Monsters

I Managed to do this page of sketches based on the Universal Studios monsters from the silver screen era.  Been pretty busy with freelance and school, so nothing too special, but I hope you enjoy, and have a happy Halloween!

More Struggle

Here are a couple of charcoal drawings.  I still feel like I struggle quite a bit with realism...the time and execution doesn't feel as natural or effortless as I have observed them to be in the great artists and illustrators I have learned from.  It is very frustrating to still not have that kind of control, and I would really like to reach that point.  Until then, I will continue working towards that goal...and asking people who are there for advice.

These are just random photos that I have found while being on the Internet.  I see photos that I think I might like to translate into a drawing and file them away...the file is quite large now...I think I have serious problems.

Also, while typing this, I didn't realize that the word "Internet" is meant to be capitalized.  I never thought of it as a proper noun...does anyone else feel that way?  I guess it is pretty important and one of a kind.

Fun Faces

Here are some studies I did using a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and some Tombow Ink Brush pens.  Some were influenced studies by other artists (indicated in the text), the rest are from imagination.

Also, the study of the old woman with the tea kettle is from the work of Leyendecker, not Lyendecker like I have it on the picture.
