Here’s a couple of pages of character expression / face studies I’ve been doing recently.
Yesterday marked the fifth day of taking suggestions from my FB friends and fans on what to draw during my lunch hour. One of the suggestions was from a friend of mine, Conrad, who thought the idea of “The Thing that is Always Behind You” would make for good subject matter.
I had to agree with him. This one wasn’t as finished as I would have liked. Midway through, I ditched my initial concept and started fresh. This left me roughly a thirty minutes to do what I have been doing in sixty.
Today, we’re going to do zombies. If you have a suggestion, pop over and leave a comment on my
FB art page!
Yesterday’s Halloween Sketch suggestion was The Slender Man, suggested by Vali McDougal on Facebook. This one was a lot of fun, as I had never heard of the character.
For this one I wanted to create more of a spooky image, and I thought that emulating an old photograph with something unexpected would work best. I think at the end, I would have liked to have spent more time on it, but sticking to my self imposed rules, I only allowed one hour.
Next in the Halloween Series I’m doing on Face Book;
During my lunch break, I’ve been soliciting suggestions on FB for Halloween Characters. I give myself 1 hour to do the illustration, and good or bad, it’s posted to my wall.
This was the first one from last week.
This is from today:
