    Garth's sketchy

    Hi all, my name's Garth. Here's a random dump of stuff that I created this past year and some sketches done in the last week or so.

    I want to step it up a gear this year, so hopefully keeping a sketchbook will help!

    Let's make lemonade!

    Nice motion in these, and your pencils are Very nice, especially the portrait. Good Luck with your SB, nice start to it.

    Thanks Bill!

    Some quick train sketches done over the last couple of weeks. Still feeling a little bit self conscious about drawing on the train, but I'm getting used to it.

    I need to start sketching whole bodies and gestures instead of just heads. Hoping to get into some proper life drawing classes soon. At least then I'll get to have a good long look at my subject without creeping anyone out. It's hard to really capture someone's likeness on the train without letting on that you're drawing them. I feel like a sketch sniper!

    Train sketches!

    More sketching on the train...

    And yes, I swear there are zombies on my train sometimes. Cough.

    Thanks Brun...I'll just keep plowing through them as often as possible. Who knew train rides to work could be so much fun?

    This week's CHOW.

    Duuuump. Sketchbook stuff and a couple of digital studies to wrap it up. The turtles stuff I plan on painting up one day soon - needs some refining before that happens though. Just realised how schizophrenic some of those pages are

    Thankyou! I'm trying to get better at painting in ps, so here's another b+w study from ref. A couple of hours of work. Still cranking along with my train sketches but I'll scan them in some other time...it's late and I need sleep!

    This week's CHOW. I had planned on doing a back to back good fairy/bad fairy illo, as a nod to Brian Froud but ran out of time. Maybe I'll go through with that one day. I managed to finish this (good fairy) so submitted it by itself.

    This week's CHOW. Didn't make the cut coz my file wasn't named appropriately. Oh well...hopefully I won't make the same mistake next time! Got some holidays coming up soon so I might revisit this then and fix a few things. But for now I'm done with it!

    I haven't posted any sketchbook stuff in a while so this is a massive dump. I've been using a moleskine plain notebook (A4) because I like the feel of the pages but they're fairly thin, so I apologise for the slight ghosting you'll see on some pages (I've resorted to only using the right hand in these books now). I've ordered a couple of A4 sketchbooks that I'll use for marker sketches to try and mix things up a bit. Soooo, from now on I'll keep two sketchbooks - one for pencils and one for markers. I've got some holidays coming up soon too, so hopefully I can find some time for some studies and trips out and about to try some new things. Weee...!
