    Manon's Sketchbook

    Hi All,

    Relatively new to the forums, but thought I'd better start my own sketchbook. I have put a few things in Crimsondaggers, but will post some again in here, and any of my other work.

    I'm currently working as a freelance artist/illustrator, but always wanting to improve, so this is a superb way of doing so. Really love this forum, very very welcoming.

    First two in this one are photo studies from Pascal Renoux's amazing photographs, which I find very useful for representations of superb natural light. You can see his work at www.pascalrenoux.com. I did these for the Crimson Daggers sketch group.

    Next along is a master study of 'My Sweet Rose' by JW Waterhouse. Waterhouse is one of my all time favourite painters. I'm working on a Ruben's master study at the moment.

    Last two sketches are a few years old, but wanted to put them in as I still love them.

    Some really old ones here (bout five years or more some), but still like them for their lines.

    I was asked by a visitor to my table last year at Des Planches et les Vaches (title to the comic convention in Caen), to draw a 'Pumpkin Werewolf' - has to be one of the most original convention sketch ideas i've ever had!! Usually its a werewolf request or a pretty lady...

    This was a pencil sketch, but I coloured it in Painter afterwards.

    Quick 45 min sketch of a friend (from photo). I had uploaded a new brush in Photoshop and tried it out with this image, was a nice brushy brush!

    This guy is an amazing graphic novel illustrator from France, if you want to check out his art, look at his blog David Cequeira - his line work is gorgeous, very stylized.

    Nice SB, really liking your work. The nude on the red background in your first post is my favourite, really striking!
