By in sketches, watercolour

This feels slightly less demented than most of my offerings, but I’m probably kidding myself. All the same, I feel more control of my medium and the effects it creates, and also my drawing. Hooray!

Still painting random faces, from DVDs, and my squirming imagination. Kind of enjoying it at the moment. Some bonus kitty-cats as well.

Colour Cats and Such

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

I’m doing comic colouring in Photoshop. Shouldn’t be so difficult, but I’m thinking of it a lot. Then a little watercolour.

Arrr…. Ulllg….

By in men, sketches, watercolour

This guy is vaguely based on John Cusack from the movie “Say Anything,” but I was too lazy to draw a portrait. So he becomes “random guy,” because it’s too cold to go out on the balcony and draw people.

Hard and Soft Edges

By in sketches, watercolour, women

I dislike ink outlines, but am working on hard and soft edges in drawings. Leaving the middles alone in this case, or giving them a gentle wash.

Kid Pushing Traffic Marker

By in watercolour

This kid was pushing down traffic markers the other day. So I drew him. If you see this kid around your neighbourhood, tell him to leave the traffic markers alone.

Fast and Slow Watercolours

One of these was painted very quickly, the other very slowly. Which is which? Do you care?

Pen and Ink Cats, etc.

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Mr. Boggedy only WISHES he could catch rats! It’s a pain thinking up clever titles for these posts of sketches, so I’m just going for the search engines! Here’s my old pal, Howard Shore (with a random DVD lady): Bonus! A woman pointing! Is she actually wearing anything, or am I just lazy? Could have […]

Drawings of Thugs and Women

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Sorry, they’re not together. Some other time! The guy here is my trying to recapture impressions of this character I saw on the street, who could have been a thug ordered by Central Casting. Don’t think I caught the exact look of malice on his face which unsettled me, though! Women in pencil, and colour:

A Utopian Moment

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Science Fiction Experiment

By in men, paintings, watercolour, women

Got carried away painting something in one of my books. The more complex you make it, it seems the more the flaws show up. Oh well, I enjoyed doing it. Trying to manage my lights and darks, my perspective, also my colour palette. The interesting thing about doing these is that they never quite get […]
