Right, I figure I'll improve a lot faster if I consistently draw at least a certain amount every day, at the moment I'm a natural slacker. So I guess I will start this off with some sketches I did in my sketchbook over the last 3 days of the workshop, and I'll try to post at least one page per day wherever possible.
The blue band around my wrist will work as a reminder than I never draw enough!
So, without further ado...
3-minute marker sketch from life:
10-minute marker and ink sketch from life:
5-minute marker sketch, no reference:
Attempted Marko-style (no initial sketching, just straight in with the anatomical lines), HB mechanical pencil:
Random sea-creature, vague inspiration from Clawful. No interesting design, but I still kinda like it. Markers and ink:
2-minute pen sketch, from life:
Android-style scribbly base. I didn't know what it was gonna be until after about 10 minutes of random light lines and scribbles. Unfinished, I'm still working on picking out shapes:
That's all for now. In fact, those are the first images I've ever posted on ConceptArt.org ... I hope they're an OK starting point!
