Star Wars, etc.

By in black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Posting various sketches I’ve been doing. Mainly to do with the new “Star Wars” movie, which I finally saw, and “Emma” by Jane Austen. Star Wars had some pleasant new characters, but it was basically a rehash of the same old plot. I mean where did they find the time and materials to build a […]

Doot Doot

By in color, digital, heads

Feeling uninspired, which might be clear from this image. But at least my digital technique is getting better. Things seem to go up and down. I should really be doing watercolours, but I need better self-motivation.

Two Faces

By in Coloured Pencils, heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I guess using the flash on the little camera makes these things look too light.

Goths

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, brush pen, heads, pen and ink, sketches

Some strange types, on a loose sheet of typing paper. Do they even call it “typing paper,” now? Copy paper, I guess. I still like drawing on it with pens.

Neil Smith Doodle

By in black and white, brush pen, heads, men, sketches

For someone who draws as many faces as I do, I find it hard to hit a likeness. But I’m happy with this little face of author Neil Smith I doodled in the margin of the Esplanade Editions book catalog. That glossy paper is very comfortable to draw on with the pentel brush pen. Hope […]

Digital Dalliance

By in color, digital, heads, women

I hope I’m not wasting my time trying to paint digitally. My line, which I think looks nice enough in watercolour or little pen and ink drawings, to me doesn’t look so appealing in digital. Still, this post gives me hope. It’s from a “famous” digital artist, discussing how her drawing has improved over the […]

Various Sketchbook Pages

By in color, heads, horses, men, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Various items from the sketchbook. I’m trying to work out of my comfort zone. The last two are more like what I usually enjoy doing. I love horses. Worked at a horse farm for one summer. Trying here for more “frosty colours, rather than the warm tones I often use. I’ve got better ideas about […]

Tiny Pict-chas

By in ballpoint pen, cats, color, dogs, heads, paintings, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

More from the sketchbook. “Tiny pict-chas,” as my sis used to refer to them, when she wanted to get my goat. I enjoy the line made when the black roller pen gets wet, and mixes a little with the colour.

Auntie Griselda and Friends

By in heads, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

Another sketchbook page. That’s my Auntie Griselda in the upper left-hand corner. The rest of the people mainly come from magazines, such as “Exclaim,” and those glossy promotional ones you can pick up in cinemas. I should colour all the drawings, but I guess I’m lazy.

Gouache Faces

By in color, Gouache, heads, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour

It’s been a pleasant afternoon, and after some work, I sat on the balcony and painted people who were going by, in opaque watercolour.

New Animation Studio

By in color, Coloured Pencils, heads, men, montreal, pencil, Portraits, self-promotion, sketches

Thrilled by the news that a new animation studio is opening up in Montreal (a side-effect, I think, of the low dollar making it more tempting for foreign operations to invest here. Not to mention the high number of talented artistic types in this city). In honour of that fact, I’ve done this amazing, highly-detailed […]

“Traditional” Media

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

I’ve been so deep into digital, that I began to wonder whether I could still do useful things with paper. Below is a drawing a made during a phone coversation (they’re often long, at least with my friend). Black ballpoint pen in my sketchbook. Above is a made-up woman painted on a sample of my […]
