first daily portraits

One of my goals for the new year is to do more studies, including faces. I noticed I tend to draw very similar faces, which I think is the result of a very small, generalized mental library. So I'm going to include, along with other exercises, doing daily portraits from some sort of reference. This can include self portraits or from photo reference. There's plenty to be improved upon, as you can see. Here's hoping for improvement in the coming year.

Model credit goes to Longstock on DeviantArt for the photos used for reference.

Just some sketches from Blount Park. Trying to get out more and draw more frequently, especially from life.

Quick post of hands and my tortoise guy

When all else fails and you can't think of anything to draw, draw your hands.

An update on the guardian challenge. It was suggested I try a humanoid version of my favorite guardian design, so I opted to make a quick version. This is my only attempt at the human tortoise guardian, and it turned out pretty good.

working on a character

These are a pair of initial sketches for a character I'd like to use for a simple, one-shot narrative comic. She's a young mechanic who'll find a major pet project that she works on. I really need to work on clothes.
