I have for you a a handful of sketches that I have done over the last few weeks. Nothing fancy, ya know? Just good ol' sketches. (click to enlarge any images
First off, a relatively unused sketch that I did in preperation for soon to be printed illustration in The Amplifier
. Though I ended up going in a very different direction for the final image, I still kinda dig this lil old illustration-style doodle.
Next, we have a few sketches of people that were photographed over at the fantastic website, The Sartorialist
. I think I've probably done a good number more that use the site's interesting subjects for reference, but these are the sketches I have photos of. That site is a great place for inspiration and "people practice."
I used this painting
, a self portrait by painter Tintoretto, as reference for the tighter sketch below. (after my fun squashing and stretching of the figure, I think he kind of looks like this guy
) I think I could really benefit from doing more sketches and studies off of the old masters. I know its helped me alot in the past and if you haven't done it you should give it a go! :) It's pretty "rad" as the kids would say.
Well, I hope you enjoyed these sketches and have a great rest of the week, friends! God bless!
