So here’s one of Monday’s drawings… on Tuesday I’m on a mission to prove that Facebook is generally a bad idea if you don’t want someone to pick at it, find your image, and proceed to turn it into something sketchy…
I decided to keep the male-female ratio of photo sketches relatively even; hence my current victims. Again, a cookie to anyone who spots the likeness ;) Faces and hands are all about the details, as many will tell you - sometimes not even the details that you actually include… Spider Jerusalem lives!!

I’ve realised that I need to invest in some larger pencils, given the amount of shading I seem to do On the other hand, I really want to make some of these ideas more “finished”; in painted or animated form. An hour isn’t really enough to do this, so I’m going to try and do shorter posts for this and work on turning a few into more respectable creations. Â Like Pygmalion for sketches…
As it is, I’m a day behind - here’s one that should have gone up on Friday. I like the fact that I’ve actually started to act on the simple little “that would be interesting” thoughts that I normally file away with all the best intentions in the world. If you haven’t heard of Gauntlet, this may not make a lot of sense. Â The style is still too indistinct.. neither cartoon nor realism..

This one is based on a darkly comic short story written by John Clerkin - it’s an excellent vignette about a disgruntled gardener for a future corporation. I’m trying to convince him to have a stab at doing a graphic version - the only problem is that the story would almost need to be told in reverse
I start out meaning to do a more comic-style, and just keep fiddling with it. The fore-shortened perspective was to try and make it more claustrophobic, but I don’t think it’s worked out - I think it’s too busy. Still, that’s an hour

Spent much of yesterday fiddling with other non-drawing things (well, if you exclude Flash), but I woke up this morning at about 5:30, flicked up Facebook to notice a few old housemates had changed their profile pics, and started drawing. A cookie if you can guess who this is… as I’m not sure about the likeness, and I seem to have a constant habit of elongating people’s faces… (hopefully she doesn’t mind this). The hair should be dark, as this took a bit over an hour…

Which he is drawing.. okay, bad pun. Â I’m pretty sure everyone has done something like this sometime, but here’s mine. Â Except this person isn’t me, as he’s very obviously got 20/20 vision (for the moment), a natty clean shirt, and hair that looks like it may have seen a cutting blade relatively recently.

It seems I’ve slipped into bad fantasy fan-art… I’ll blame this one on looking at Diablo III and thinking that I could somehow do something based on that. Â It was a hasty sketch, as this style and the time required doesn’t lend itself to completion.
This is Wednesday’s… Friday’s and a bonus to follow…
