Inktober- Day 24- Life Drawing

Did some life drawing on the bus today. Whilst the hair wasn't as rugged as it was in real life, and it was unfinished because they left for their stop, I quite like the minimalist marks on the seating.

Inktober- Day 23- Peeling Potato Study and Cartoon

Similar to how I did some research for my recent illustration work, I wanted to do some research for this potato film idea. So I sketched from an image to get an idea on how the hands work when doing this. Then I drew a quick cartoon just to get an idea on how it would look.

Inktober- Day 22- Life Drawing (Woman on Bus with Trolley)

I tried to do some life drawing on the bus, but the trip was so wobbly, that I wasn't pleased with it whilst doing this. It's not too bad, although I would've liked some more definition with the trolley and her hands. There's always another day.

Inktober- Day 21- Still Life from Garden

I decided to do something different today, so I took inspiration from the family garden. I was quite pleased at how this worked as a composition, although I might have gone overboard with some of the wispy mark-making for all of that plantlife.

Inktober- Day 20- Potato Designs

Just wanted to play around with this potato character a bit more before developing some of the further scenes for this germ of a film. I quite like how this character looks like, so I might work on some of the other scenes featuring potatoes that I want to include next time.

Inktober- Day 19- Realistic and Cartoon Potato

I though I needed to do some research to develop my potato characters a bit. So I did a realistic study of one, via an image search, followed a cartoon potato with a face on it. I like how the 'tuber' can be made into a nose. I wanted to use a brush pen to draw it to achieve that thick-line 'manga' look that can be easy on the eye, and easy to animate - in theory! I might need to work whether I want to apply simple shading into my film or not; as long I don't try to colour it is like that with a brush pen it could give them some dimension.

Inktober- Day 18- Life Drawing

I might be a bit rusty after all of that illustrative work lately, but this drawing of man in a hat and glasses was a pretty reasonable effort.
