    C Pettit's Female Sketch-work

    Just thought I post up some of the stuff I've been doing lately, and will post up stuff I'm doing as I do it.
    I sketch things, people, photographs, artwork/paintings that I see. None of it is based on my imagination. As I've never taken a drawing course, the way I draw is a little different from most.

    These are just digital pictures of the pieces, i wish I had a scanner.

    Last piece I did for someone. Sharon Tate.


    A rendition


    My rendition of a well known piece and game: Pacman





    Both of these are Miranda Kerr inspired:








    Edit: I'll attach images in the future.

    The piece I did homage to that got me into sketching exclusively women:

    Lovely sketches! I like your lines and volumes, keep at it mate!

    Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Lines bare and simple are something I love and love playing with. I try to never have the same exact feel and style in two pieces, so that I can learn what works and what doesn't since I'm still in that stage.

    I was inspired specifically in the subject of lines by Sarah Hankinson, an Illustrator in Australia of whom I've talked to a bit and own a few of her pieces.

    I gathered some of the stuff I moved away from to do what I do now:

    The lines in your work are really nice! Also love the shading in the third piece of the first post. Really makes it look... awesome.

    And I completely approve - drawing women is awesome!

    Thanks, Dread. I appreciate the accolades on lines, it's what keeps my drawing. I just love the emotion different types of lines bring.

    nice work, but I think you're doing a little bit too much 'copying' rather than try to understand the shapes you're actually drawing. it makes your drawings look either traced or a bit awkward

    Another thing you do is outline the shadows and then fill them in with pencil. which is fine, but you tend to reinforce the original shadow line and that tends to look as if there was a hard cut or crease in the skin rather than a round shape creating the shadow

    if you can, have a look at an andrew loomis book (or similar) about how to construct anatomy. you'll learn heaps!

    You're right, I very much do try to copy what I see. But the hard outline then shadow is kinda what I go for because I like the look. But I see what you're saying, for sure.
