    MerMuse Sketchbook

    Here are some sketches from my trip to Japan over the holidays...

    A few statues, a rock garden, Ponto-cho (Kyoto), and Fuji with snow.
    I'd planned on doing a lot of painting while I was there but it was so cold I ended up just doing a lot of quick marker sketches.

    Ooo, Japan looks so pretty. Great job on the marker sketches. This is no doubt a great start to your sketchbook. I love you choice of colors, great job.

    gestures

    Here are some quick soccer gesture studies and some similar anime poses...

    I'm wanting to start working on a sports/fantasy game concept but need to get in the right mindset so I though this would be a good exercise to loosen up with. Also trying to find a nice balance between the scale of the upper and lower body. I like the big puffy coat/sweater contrasted witht he skinny legs.

    The soccer gestures look great! Looks just like any real soccer game, you did a great job capturing the poses on this one.

    Thanks, I've found that the key to a great value study (whether ist a painting or a sketch) is a nice warm/cool contrast. So I like to work with a selection of both warm and cool gray markers.

    As for the soccer concept. I want to get the basic character shapes and gestures feeling right before I start getting caught up in details... like adding fantasy elements. I'll post more on this project as I experiment more.

    Ahh, what better contrast than warm and cool colors. Such a simple concept, but it you work it so well. Thanks for the input!

    Thanks...

    I finally got around to scanning this stuff. The drawing club is basically a figure drawing group that meets each week and they always have lots of interesting themes, costumes and props. I really like it because it gives me a chance to draw a variety of clothing styles.
