N is for Nova. Another letter down in the Superhero Friday challenge with co-workers…

I took my time in procrastinating on this one, but I finally shit one out really quick (up top) before getting a little more serious and using my warm up time to do a slightly more serious Nova.

Check out my Titmouse compatriot’s Nova (and other superhero sketches)—

Just some ink brush drawings (from photos) I did while on the flight home. Parrots!

Superman warm up sketch from today. Loosening up those drawing muscles.

After a horrible day of drawing yesterday, I did a quick warm up from a photo to try to loosen up the arm and mind.

Another Game of Throne’s Jon Snow drawing!!

Warmed up for work the other day with this one. I included my original rough sketch for contrast between beginning and end. With this one, I just dived into the digital inks, there was no real clean up or tightening up stage because I usually throw away all my warm up drawings. 

Super quickie Game of Thrones art. What a season! Phew… My heart’s been pumping so hard on every episode! I have been wanting to draw some of these characters for a while, but properly… I will try my hand at some illustrations rather than sketches. Have some fun with it.

Everyone was posting Wolverines for the Sketch Dailies topic a few days ago and it made me want to draw Wolvie.

I had some time to mindlessly sketch while watching movies this weekend (you can see a Dallas Buyers Sketch in the middle of my Wolverines). My sketches tend to be boring, more like studies/me trying to remember what the character looks like/trying to find a shape I like. The top drawing was me getting fed up with my mindless sketches and trying to come up with an emotion, a moment. I was going to take 2-3 more passes at that pose, maybe push perspective, push the camera, play around and see what I can come up with, but I gotta get going to watch X-Men: Days of Future Past!!

Another thing I know about myself, when I draw a bounding box first, I tend to draw more focused, when the page is open, it’s like an invitation to not focus and vomit all over the page.

Me and car took a little trip into the Angeles National Forest to see the Tour of California. You can see a Dutch flag on the road, the Dutch love their cycling!!

A very quick tribute to HR Giger. Whose concepts of a world spawned nightmares for so many…I saw lots of tributes of crying Aliens or flowers and Aliens… but I figured this would be as fitting as any tribute.

M is for Mandarin - Superhero Friday sketch. Man, I should have checked the colors on my second monitor. When I loaded the image on my second monitor I noticed how everything was in a 1-3 on a value scale, when I was coloring it on my cintiq it was a 6-9 on a value scale… Oh well, I fixed the level a bit in Photoshop, couldn’t get it perfect, but it’s all good, this is just suppose to be a sketch exercise, no need to spend more time on this, it’s good enough. :)
