I recently bought a tablet, and while it has taken a bit of adjustment, it’s actually a lot of fun to draw on.
Anyway, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Drawn in SketchBook Pro.

More of the same.

Just some character pose studies from this criminally underrated show.

Now if only I could find it on DVD…

My first attempt at a paper cut; a gift for my sister, nonetheless. Note to future self: work at a bigger size.

Really missing these kids; cannot wait for season two. I love Gravity Falls’ use of colour and light, so drew these up as practice on a subject I struggle with a bit myself. The poses I redrew from this model sheet.

Rock. 
Robot Rock.

Wait… do robots even have hips? Anyway, my contribution to Loop-de-Loop’s November theme: Dance Party

I know I’m the last to the party, but I’ve just started watching Breaking Bad recently, and am loving it. All the elements are outstanding, but I particularly love the cinematography. Seriously, Michael Slovis, well done! Here are my studies from 4 Days Out (with a bit of colour slapped in).

And as an added bonus, some of the rough thumbnail sketches drawn before arriving at the final design.

Quick mock-up test. More work to follow.

Continuing on with Ivan Brunetti’s Cartooning syllabus, Exercise 1.2

Draw quick doodles (5-10 seconds each) of famous cartoon characters, from memory. Try to do at least 25 characters, more if possible.

Hopefully some of these are decipherable.

I took time out yesterday to doodle some Wander poses directly from the first episode/intro. Such a fun, loose and appealing character to draw. Cleaned them up to practice my digital inking too.

I also stumbled across this helpful tool that Alex Kirwan put together for the artists on the show. I’m a massive nerd when it comes to these types of resources.
