Sunday Sketch Dump

Sunday sketch dump. A lot of ink-tober drawings this week. All I really had time for was quick sketches. Never got around to finishing any bigger pieces. 

Better luck next week. 

Lady sketches

Some recent sketches of various tough and dangerous girls. I'm trying to strike that balance between sexy, tough, and visibly strong, yet still feminine. It can be a hard balance to hit. Also, you'll notice liberal use of Frazetta knee. 

I think for me it's about the attitude and the facial expression. For these particular ones I was kind of avoiding the classic sexy hips and poses. Not that I'm opposed to it, I just had a different objective for these. 

My traditional work is almost always focused on line and value. My process rarely changes when working this way. I start with construction lines finding the composition and pose. Then I build on top of that with details. 

By contrast, my working digital process changes regularly. Sometimes I start with line, sometimes value, sometimes color. What doesn't change is the order that I do things. I always start with vague block in of shapes and then progress to details and clean up.
