Using different watercolour paper here, and a wet technique. R. Crumb and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. Watching the DVD of the documentary movie again.

Extreme Norosity, and other things.

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Nora was looking cute the other night. So I painted her. Was she THIS cute? Still, pretty darn cute. More of the usual thing. A pilot woman, in front of a Battle-Star Galactica kind of thing. One of my usual sketchbook pages. Including Garlic Heads.

Heroes and Ordinary People

By in dogs, men, watercolour, women

In the brush drawing, I’m imagining Wonder Woman’s frumpier, older cousin. I always think that these glamourous types have relatives who are less impressive, and jealous of them. This is Cyrano de Bergerac. In one of his works, he built himself a pair of wings, and flew to the moon. Gotta love that Cyrano! Then, […]

Trials of Moms, etc.

By in men, watercolour, women

Lots of parents go by here, taking their charges (sometimes unhappy) to the nearby day care. May draw a few more, as there are all kinds. Just some more faces, with that yellow treatment I was speaking of:

I’m still messing with yellow, which gives a quality of “light” to my sketches. Of course, I also have to manage the lights and darks to make this work. This is some mad spaceship. I used to draw spaceships all the time as a kid, influenced by Star Trek and 2001 A Space Odyssey. I […]

…Or, I’m not telling you where it came from! One of those kinds of days.

Pretty Women

By in paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

I’m getting used to the idea that I’m not a particularly precise or careful painter, but the better pictures seem to be the ones I don’t fuss over too much. I’m not good at underdrawing and structure. When I try to use them, the results seem forced and stiff. I think these are nice, because […]

A New, New Book

By in men, sketches, watercolour

Picked up a new sketchbook on the way with a friend to the new “Harry Potter” movie on the weekend. It was on the sale table at the art materials store, so I thought it was on sale, but turned out to be not. We were in a hurry to get to the show, so […]

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour

Recently painted a lot of dudes, or guys, or what have you. Faces seem to work better if I leave more white in them, but as usual, it’s all experimentation. The more I work on things, the better stuff gets. But if I go away from it, I seem to lose the touch, and have […]

Yellow Dog

By in dogs, sketches, watercolour

Painted a lot of things. Haven’t posted many yet. Maybe I’ll try something new and post only GOOD drawings. That would be a switch.

People Sitting

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Still doing pinup girls, though this one is kind of rubbery. Bear with me, please! Also, a sitting guy.
