Hardly did any work in a sketchbook, first day there we went to the art store and found a block of 100 sheets of watercolour paper for 20 bucks, so I bought 2 sets and tore into them.
Tons and tons of sketches. I was pretty distracted the whole time, only sketching happened during lunch, at the hostel or during lessons where i didnt have to look at the instructors...
3CH thunderdome, very few people did this one, we lost interest and went to bed...
another thunderdome, most offensive carnival freak
sketching at the Upstairs jazz club with lots of cool people
this was for the workshop Thunderdome, point was to go out, find a member of the opposite sex we dont know, and draw their portrait. This was a girl studying at Second Cup. Special thanks to Wes and Mr. Blonde for their damn awesome tips helping me produce my favorite pencil portrait. Learned so goddamn much with this one
first time at the jazz club I drew the saxophonist, got him to autograph the sketch
only life drawing i did at the workshop, and this much was only cause I was waiting for some other lessons to start up. I figures I took photos, and can draw all the time at home, but I cant sit beside Marko and watch him draw while he answers my questions.
thunderdome piece, Masked Warrior. I actually won, but I think thats because the judge (dirtyc) was intoxicated ;]
quick portrait of that fat kid
followed by an attempt at caricature of him
and of king coyote
and of guggenmaneuver
quick portrait of Marco at the hostel
character doodle, one of the few workshop ones i was satisfied with
random ass sketching
people at the workshop
on the bus to Montreal
one on the left is by Pixeldragoon. The right was a mini thunderdome and my very first attempt at a vehicle. Gotta step outta the comfort zone and start doing more!
left is by Panda, right is some guy at the bus station
on the bus, brushpen
cruddy brushpen sp, signatures by Coro, dan milligan and marko on the right
quick conte sketch of whatshisface (dammit i suck at names...) who did some awesome watercolours!
this was actually a sketch I started on the way to Montreal on the bus and forgot about. On the bus home i found it again, but instead of finishing it i critiqued myself and moved on.
post-workshop stuff. A lot of random sketching getting shit outta the way, experimenting and such. Feel much more driven, focused and confident now.
Came back to Toronto for the last week of classes (and highschool!) which naturally included yearbooks. I sketched in everyone's book, here are a couple that I liked...
