I got some India ink and some proper dip pens. I’ve been on such a rough drawing kick lately. It’s so much fun to let your mind wonder and just to draw using ink and a pen. Definitely channeling some Searle vibes today. I urge everyone out there to switch up there style from time to time. You never know what cool results you will stumble upon.

Here is a little progress post. The bottom left is my terrible first try, then another rough sketch with a far more confident pose and finally my finished version at the top. Keep going and always work through those shitty first passes, that’s what its all about.

Some ruff baseball sketches that I have been playing around with. Partially  Inspired by some of Matt Jones’s life drawings.

Few drawings from tonight. Got my hands on a bunch of new markers this weekend so hopefully some cool coloured post are a coming.

Bunch of drawings from the train and sketch breaks at work.

Here is a character that I have been playing around with for a little bit. He’s supposed to be the “One eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater” I forgot about the flying part so there is no wings lol. When I went to CTN the biggest critique I got was that I never showed any rough exploratory work. So I’m going to try and show any rough drawings that I have with my designs coming up. Now I just need to invest in a proper scanner, my iPhone camera isn’t quite cutting it haha.

I watched Blackfish over the weekend. Killer Whales are such amazing creatures.

HI, my name is Bill!!!

Here is some character development I played around with this week. I tried to work on one or two poses after work each day this week. It was cool to see the character develop as the week progressed.

I did dozens of pencil drawings trying to flesh out this character, maybe I’ll post those next. 

More “The Good Dinosaur” concepts. Really digging these new brushes I got! Stay tuned I may have a few more coming haha. 

Today I went back to playing around with “The Good Dinosaur” concepts. When I met John Nevarez at CTN he told me to try and infuse some more story elements into my designs and to also work rougher and on paper. I really like this approach. It forces you to draw quick and to forget about adding all the photoshop gloss. I heard this project is shelved for the next while but if anyone from Pixar is listening,I’m available ;)

Bunch of drawings from today. Drawing faces is my guilty pleasure, I know I should work on drawing out the whole body but I just love to draw different shapes of peoples faces.
