WIP 05Jul2018

Time: 3 hours

Darkened up the neck and started in on the hair.  Also started the headphones.  I think they might be off. Will need to adjust strap methinks.

Also bought a new tabletop easel. Hopefully it will help alleviate some of the back pain I get when I sit and draw for hours on end.

WIP 04Jul2018

Time: 3.5 hours

Managed to get quite a bit done today.  Neck and hair obviously need work.  The hair needs to be bigger and the neck needs more definition and better fade into his uniform. There is something weird going on with his jawline. Once I go in with darker tones, maybe that will help?

WIP 03Jul2018

Time: 2.5 hours

Eyes are mostly done. Nose and mouth still needs work. Adjusted forehead; looks better.  Need to work on facial shadows. They are a bit too light.

WIP 02Jul2018

Time: 1 Hour

Started laying down some markers.  Looking ok so far.  His forehead is too high, but easy fix with his hair.

Accidentally blopped some marker goo on the piece when I overfilled my Copics. Such a rookie mistake.  Happily, it was C0 and C1 so, not super dark. Otherwise, I would have been a super sad panda.

WIP 27Jun2018

Time: 1.25 Hours

Another new piece! This time? Alex Kamal, the Roci’s intrepid pilot.  Super rough sketch. Mapping out features.  I predict that the mouth is going to be a pain in my ass. But the headphones and hair are going to be my favourite bits.

WIP 22Jun2018

Time: 4.25 Hours

Made a lot of headway on the face.  The hat is mostly done. I am in love with the hat band.  Starting blocking out background.  Neck needs to attention.

WIP 21Jun2018

Time: 2.0 Hours

Worked on mouth and started on some stubble.  Right nostril still needs attention.

WIP 20Jun2018

Time: 3.25 Hours

Continued work on nose. Starting to get there. Highlighting is definitely helping! Right nostril needs attention.  Dimple is awesome. But, like, dimples are always awesome (#dimplefangirl). Philtrum is weird – probably too dark.

WIP 19Jun2018

Time: 2.25 Hours

Worked on eyes and nose. Nose looks ridiculous – super smushed. Needs more highlighting and shadows.

WIP 18Jun2018


Time: 1.5 Hours

Finessed hat and clothing.  Roughed in some shadow.

PLEASE NOTE:  Shitty lighting = bad photo. [facepalm]

WIP 16Jun2018

Time: 1.75 Hours

New piece!  Super rough sketch. Mapping out features.  Might need a bit of tweaking – especially mouth. Hat needs to be fixed. It’s a bit lopsided.

But so far, so good.

WIP 11Jun2018

Time: 1.75 Hours

Worked on hair. Needs more highlights/individual strands.  But looks really muddy in the photo (not as muddy in the really-real world). Super roughed in clothing and roughed in background.

Approaching the usual mid-drawing “Gawd! I hate everything about this!” phase.  Gotta keep pushing through.

WIP 10June2018

Time: 1.5 Hours

Ear(s) are more or less done.  Might need a bit more shadow/highlight . Started mapping out hair and neck. Stubble needs a bit more blending.
