This is how my week has been.
See this dog? This dog likes to sit in the most uncomfortable places while I draw. Uncomfortable for me, that is.
A self-portrait of the artist. Gotta get used to drawing myself a bit more angular. I’m not as round as I used to be. In any case, this sketch was warm-up for…
A gift for my sister’s birthday. Honestly I like the sketch version better. The pen I was using didn’t work well on the glossy sleeve, as you can see. Should have gotten my good Pigma Microns out. Oh well. (A gift card goes inside the sleeve, in case you didn’t know.)
“Hello. I have a square jaw. How are you?”
Drawing the face in profile is always my favorite. Adding long hair makes it even more fun!
Is he full of angst, or just trying to look cool?
So, apparently drawing long-haired pretty boys was a thing this week.
As you might imagine, I did a lot of sketches in the four or so years that I wasn’t doing Sketchbook Monday entries anymore. One day I might do a special entry to go back and show the highlights of what was missed, or space them out and put them at the end of normal Sketchbook Monday entries.
Some random king dude, along with his regalia. It’s hard (for me, at least) to do a lot of detail work like clothing patterns and layers in sketches, not just because of how loose the line art is, but because the whole sketch tends to get smudged as I work on it.
A young space pilot cadet, in gear for the first time ready for their training. Are they excited at all, or just nervous and anxious?
The cuteness! You cannot handle the cuteness!
I’m not sure why, but I just really like the way this guy turned out.
Just some girl, reflecting on things. Do love the way her hair turned out.
Sometimes I don’t bother putting clothes on people when sketching because I’m more interested in the shape and form of the human body. Other times it’s because I’m just being lazy.
Felt like drawing a kid in a hoodie.
Well, this makes two weeks in a row. Hopefully this reboot of Sketchbook Monday will actually stick around for awhile.
Who doesn’t love making their own fantasy maps? (You can see the curvature of the page in the top-left corner. It annoys me to no end. Really need to get a working scanner hooked up to my system, I guess.)
And here’s a generic elf to go with it. Although, in this setting, elves are the jack-of-all-trades that humans usually are, while the “humans” of this setting are telepaths.
And here’s something I haven’t done in… (checks archives)… four years. It’s Sketchbook Monday! Yeah, I’m bringing it back! We’ll see how long it lasts. Now, if I really wanted it to be accurate, I would have waited until Tuesday to post it. Just like in the good old days.
Drawn while listing to the Attack on Titan soundtrack. Because determination.
Character concept for the military leader in a story idea where humanity tries to return and repopulate Earth after a devastating scenario which left them wanderers in space. The angle is a bit skewed because of the fact I’m taking pictures with my phone’s camera instead of properly scanning them.
Pretty sure this is medically accurate.
Despite the fact I don’t like watching sports all that much, for some reason I really like sports uniforms. They pop up in my sketchbook quite a bit.
Presented without comment.
HAS THIS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?
No story. Just some chieftain of some sort.
