someone online was mentioning drunk badges and I got a hankrin to doodle up a drunk skunk. It’s a rough but fun little sketch.
I like using the strathmore sketch books. This paper is from the 400 series with a fine tooth surface. For those not buying reems of paper the tooth determines how much pencil the paper will hold.
Spend all your furtime getting your groove on at the dance? Need a busy badge that really shows you love music? Get your groove thing on with a stylish music badge. Just e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
This is just a quick sketch. I prefer to do full color badges because they really pop. Hope to hear from you soon. Still taking commissions for @furrealitycon
these guys will be part of a larger piece eventually (where’s my darn protractor? I need circles dammit). they’re a pair of steampunk lovebirds and they’ll be back to back in front of a Zeppelin or set or gears or … Something steampunk related.
This guy is almost finished but started life as
He’s not quite a circle, a cilander, and a jelly bean but you can probably see those now that I’ve said it.
(btw it occurred to me that all @alkali_bismuth needs to be steampunk is a few artfully places gears)
And all lovebirds need a mate so here’s another lovebird who just happens to be a girl but didn’t have to be.
More of these birds will happen later cause I think they are cute.
What if bullfighting was bulls fighting?
day of the dead roughs
I had some sketches and figured since they were all a bit rough I’d give you a few this Friday post.
There isn’t anything particularly technique wise or product to talk about with these. You could do this work with a #2 pencil and some blank paper. I always carry a mechanical pencil (ok I do buy special soft lead for it), sketch paper, and an eraser with me. I’ve been known to sketch over diner, in the car, basically anywhere I go. This way, when I need to squeeze a second of work in, I can.
I guess the lesson with random sketches say is that all my stuff starts with sketches. It’s the bones of everything I do. These may go no further than sketches. Maybe, eventually, I’ll revisit these and decide they are good or maybe just the idea was good but I wasn’t good enough yet. I’ve revisited many ideas I wasn’t good enough to draw and turned the. Into fun pieces. It’s all practice and determination.
(I think I may be watching to much pokemon since this sounds a bit voice over moral ;))
these kitties are practicing the 6-2-1 rule that any good con goer should follow. For those that don’t know that’s 6hrs sleep, 2 meals, 1 shower. Btw, these are minimums and may be exceeded. 🙂
Happy labor day everyone. I’ll be celebrating by going to work and well that’s so not a good way to celebrate except, you know, money.
