More of the Same

Here are few more tree studies, this time going for speed and efficiency. I started out with some bold and somewhat controlled ink splatters and carved out details around them. Once again I'm not using any reference here, it's more a result of staring at trees all day and working from a sort of sense memory.

Late Nights



It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy, busy, busy with classes and so forth but I have managed to finish a few studies and sketchy things. I've been staying up late on Tuesdays after class and drawing during the Evan "Funk" Davies show on WFMU to unwind after class. Here are some of the results:

The first of many tree studies for an "upcoming" adventure comic I'm working out. I have to get away from drawing every goddamnedable leaf. It will happen. This is clearly adolescent leftovers from studying Roger Dean album covers and so forth. I didn't use a reference for this piece which is probably why I have problems with it.

Playing around with bleeding tissue paper. Really hard to control but nigh impossible to replicate. Hooray for happy accidents.

One of a few indirect drawings. I'll have some more of these soon. I like the tribal/menacing quality of this fellow. Far from perfect but a good start.
