For those of you that like to listen to motivational speeches and podcasts about drawing, you should definitely check out Stephen Silvers UStream Videos. He gives some great insight into what he thinks about while he's drawing; he shares mentalities he's picked up over the years and also some wonderful stories with his listeners.
Here are some facial studies that I've been doing recently and I thought the would fit in well with this post. I had lots of fun doing these. Comments and critiques are as always more then welcome :).
I found Chloe really hard to draw. I think especially in this image she doesn't quite look right so I apologize for that in advance. That said, I still like the atmosphere in this drawing though so I thought I would post it none the less.
I just read Kelly Armstrong's book: 'The Summoning', which my friend Anne-Marie lent to me. We both love the characters Derek and Chloe, so there will be lots more drawings of them coming up. Some of them are from what happens in the books, but there are some that I just came up with as situations for the character. These are the characters from the second book "The Awakening" Hope you enjoy it ^^.
A friend of mine had a great idea. She said she would create 5 pieces of art for 5 friends, who in turn would each also create 5 pieces of art for 5 other people...and so forth. I thought that was an amazing idea, so I joined up. This first piece was for my friend Tim. They are his characters Mallori and Travis. ^^
In a way this looks completely ridiculous. ..I mean who would use a baguette like a sword. But we recently had a stale baguette in the house, and I changed my mind. That thing became hard like a club. So if you see someone threatening you with a stale baguette.......run. ;)-
