    Yey!

    I take a train to and from work, and have about 20 minutes to wait for it at the station, and 40 minutes each way to just sit around while someone else is doing the work of moving me from point A to point B. Now what to do with all that free time? There are a few options, of course:

    A. Do nothing at all.
    B. Stare out the window and wish for a Nintendo DS or a PSP.
    C. Entertain myself with internal monologues.
    D. Draw.

    I usually choose option D, and for the past week have been forcing myself to draw my fellow commuters instead of myriads of little ugly monsters, which are my comfort zone. Knowing myself, this probably will not last, but one can't help but hope. So without further blubbering from yours truly, here are the commuters on the GO.

    Vow! Nice drawrings! Lots of energy but still polished where it needs to be. Love it. Love the gestures on the figures, too. Loose but still spot on. You got it man, you got it in spades.
    Orcs? We don't need no stinking orcs!

    Thanks guys!

    May 16: more people. This one suffered from lack of sleep! I wish I could get more people in 3/4 front views, but that opens me up for detection and the subject starts fidgeting prematurely.

    And a sketch for Trash Monster for COW. I won't be able to get a complete one done though, I think. It's still too... structureless. And it reminds me of the little metroids. Somehow

    My last 2 pages in my sketchbook! And.... onto a new one. I'm just afraid of filling in that first page. I don't know if I'm alone in this one, but for some reason that first blank page scares me.

    Anyhow. I kind of went with... er... that Xena 3000 and decided to do a some more!

    Hi Ledd! Thank you for your post. One thing that helps is try to keep yourself from going into details too soon. Because if you do, then the person would move and walk away and you won't have a complete pose to show for your efforts even if you did get that left ear looking flawless! Usually I begin the gesture with just drawing a bunch of curved lines that describe the general flow of the figure.

    Try to capture the entire pose (or part of it, whatever your intention may be) and then worry about the details later. A lot of times, even if the person moves from the pose he or she was in, they'll still stay in the same general area and you can study details later, either by adding them to your gesture or starting a new one just for them. Also, studying the person before drawing them helps (if there is enough time for it) to see what it is they're doing, what's interesting about their mannerisms that you'd like to convey. Basically, have a plan in mind or know why are you drawing them: if you are studying the way light falls onto skin, then spend most of your time doing just that. Then, details become so-called "bells and whistles" that you can add later if you have the time. Any drawing that you've learned something from is a successful drawing, in my opinion. I hope this made sense

    I'll try to do a more specific post in your sketchbook thread tomorrow. But for now, I need some sleep
