Life studies - My friend Levon

This girl has so much character in her face that I'm surprised I haven't drawn her before. Felt like it tonight though. I really do need to do more real life stuff.

I have this sketchbook by work from Lenord Robinson and there is this sketch he did of a gal very much like this one. It was good for me to use it as reference and combine with my friends actual face to get this down. I found that her features weren't as easy as some peoples to nail down so Lenord's sketch really helped me attack the technique. The guy is really brilliant. It's that fine line between outright copying someone and using them as a teacher to understand how to take that pen in your fingers and make it work properly.

Master studies basically

365 days - Erotica

Had a girl on my mind when I drew this. No, I haven't seen her in her skivvies but I sure bet its heaven. So ladies... now you know what goes through our minds for real when we undress you with our eyes!

365 days- Old Fogie Zombies

Just doodling some old fogie zombie types inspired by some sketches done by Lenord Robson.

365 days - Another bad romance?

So I took the plunge yesterday and bought a MacBook Pro. I have been using a very primitive pc for years and it was about 5 yrs past its due date. My iPad only does so much and I want to delve more into video work. First thing I noticed after the initial setup of this thing was how lost I was not being able to right click or go to the start menu in the bottom left corner. After 18 hrs of ownership... I'm still having trouble adapting.

Here's hoping my new romance blooms. Apparently Apple is the way to go for artsy types like me.

365 days - Chilly begets Chile

Something about cold, windy and rainy days that makes me crave a steamy bowl of Chile. Yummy. Lunch time at the office today I think I was the envy of the entire place. Haha!!

365 days - The Cats away!

All the boss types are away today... you know what that means...

365 days - Take me away. Please.

Ever get in those funky moods where you dont necessarily want to die (cuz that would be lame) but you do want to get away from it all? I think an alien abduction would be the way to go. You would be so freaked out and excited and nervous that all the other stuff that has you down would be immediatly forgotten.

take me away boys... Im ready!!

365 days - The Hard to get forcefield!

I love the chase. I really really do. But it's that "Hard to get" forcefield some women have that drives me nutty. You know the one... they bat the eyelashes, let you touch them just a bit, they rub against you, touch you in a certain way and when you think you have it completely figured out that she wants you to make "the move" BAM! you smack face first into the forcefield and you cant get any closer. It's that fine line between love and hate. I love the chase. I hate not getting any. lol.

mind the spelling of "dreaded" in my pic... I drew over it but it still looks like "dredded" lol. I'm too lazy for white out.

365 days - Drawers block

Hate it. Hate it, hate it, hate it when I cant think of something to draw. Did I mention I hate it?

365 days - Cutest things ever?

I dont know what it is about them but besides always wanting my own monkey... a squirrel comes up as my favorite want when I was a kid. They are just so damn cute!! Is it just me?

365 days - Singing in the rain

I dont know what it is about singing in the shower but even the lousiest of us can seem to sound fricken awesome in there! Today... singing me some Trooper, for the win!

365 days... Susanna Hoffs. Drool

In the 80's one girl changed me forever. She came out of nowhere singing a song with a bunch of other girls beside her called "Walk like an Egyptian". She was petite, sexy, dark and mysterious and her eyes... she made love to me with her eyes. I fell in love. From that day on whenever I see a doe eyed girl with dark hair and does that whole... "look out the sides of her eye's" trick... I melt. What a woman!

365 days of drawing... The Librarian theory

So... you see this girl. She is wearing oversized sweaters and frumpy outfits but you can tell under that she looks pretty decent maybe. She has that hipster hair and a plaid skirt with some dark nylons but some skin showing just under her skirt on her thighs. She carries a cute little girls purse or something like that but she is clearly in mid 20's... and then you notice her carrying a La Senza (sp?) shopping bag which is for lingerie or sexy undies... you immediatly think about that Sexy Librarian fantasy most men have. You know the one.... all business outside.... but underneath the outfit and behind those glasses.... oh my!! Yeah... funny how hot this actually is to us men. lol. As much as we like to look... it's those that hide it the most that make us want to look harder. Funny creatures we are.

Todays sketch....

365 days of drawing - More faces and stuff...

Just doodling more faces, expressions and working on the female form.

A page fulla faces

Sometimes it's good for me to draw body parts and kick my skills back into gear. Will be working on my comic this week which has been neglected for nearly a month... good to do this stuff as a warm up before getting back at it.

My Persian friend Farnaz

More real life drawings and this of my friend who is Persian. She just loves "The 300"! Not.

My friend Becky

I dont do much of this real life stuff and figured I better practice some. Becky, a dear friend has wanted me to do a pic of her for ages so here goes....

Boardroom doodles. Or is it... Bored room doodles

Our Monday morning boardroom meeting wasnt entertaining enough this week so I drew a horror pic for the guy next to me who is a nut for that stuff. Gore. Icky.

Happy Easter, I'm going to hell!

Luckily I'm so not a believer (sorry to offend if you are) so in celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, I strapped a dead rabbit to his head to commemorate the Easter Bunny connection.

If I am wrong, I'm pretty confident this particular image is the straw that broke the back for deciding my entry to the pearly gates! lol Btw... if you smile or like this... I will see you down below also. ha!

Soccer practice for the out of shape (ie: me)

Soccer season is just around the corner and at 46, I'm feeling every little ache and pain. We did some kicking, some running, some drills... nothing major but today... it feels major!

another day, another drawring

It's sometimes nice to have a day to sleep in. It's rare but I like it. My lit'lun is off with her momma on this weekend and I chose to snooze. Felt great

365 days begins

I decided upon seeing this wonderful blog called Zoesees that I too would draw something, anything for a full year. It started on April 5th.
