Eye studies day 2 and crap

Continuing the eye studies/copies from artists I enjoy. This time, they're from CLAMP's xxxHolic.

A quick and poorly drawn page of stuff. Need to get to drawing figures and faces. Bleh.

fauns, nymphs, and eyes

This is actually a rather older sketch, done at the beginning of the month. I was in part inspired by the work of this one artist, Arnold Bocklin, namely his fauns/satyrs and nymphs. I hope to embellish these two.

I've noticed that my eyes are all starting to look alike and losing some of their expressiveness. Okay, all parts of my faces start to look alike, and poorly so. I'm working on improving it, and part of that is doing studies. Studies can include doing copies of artists you admire, so long as it's to learn how the artist did it. Right now, I'm doing eyes (I like doing eyes). Below are studies from a Bargue plate, Joseph Sheppard, and Sailor Moon studies from Naoko Takeuchi. Expect more over the next few days, moving back to real eyes.

Bridgeman-style gestures

Some Bridgeman based exercises. Trying to work on my human anatomy a little.

Quick sketches #3 and #4

More quick sketches. The first was a relatively open request for a Sailor Moon character from Susanna, so I chose Sailor Mercury. The second was a request for Uzura from Princess Tutu, request by CoppeliaD.

Quick sketches #1 and #2

I was in a funk and put up an open request to my friends for suggestions for some quick sketches. These are not meant to be neat or particularly pretty, they're just to get me drawing something interesting.

My friend Becky wanted Bart Allen/Kid Flash, and my friend Sonia wanted Taranee from W.I.T.C.H. I had some reference for Kid Flash, and none for Taranee (and it shows).
