    Diving into it all...

    Been leafing thru other peep's sketchbooks and thought I should post some of my own...attached is some figure drawing I have done in the past, some from live models and some from photo reference...I am particularly fond of the last one, having done it in all of three minutes, and with my non-dominant hand.

    Diving into it all...

    Here's a composite for my website - it's a "dummy" placeholder front piece I have up for temporary purposes, before the real deal is designed and posted...

    I studied drama design (costume and scenery) and have focused on costumes since moving the Los Angeles nine years ago. Which made all that figure drawing in college worthwhile - half of the costume design sketch is nailing the body type/face and pose just right, to "sell" it visually.

    Also attached are some costume drawings done in Photoshop with my new Intuos tablet - not so much paintings, per se, but colored drawings - the lines never quite disappear...

    And some more costume sketch stuff...plus a couple of superhero/supervillain types in pencil at the end. (I had been playing way too much CITY OF HEROES at the time I drew these... )

    One more for the road - this one was always a favorite in my portfolio...I cranked it out fast and was rather pleased with it, and watercolor is not my most comfortable of mediums..

    Nice start to your s.b. The "Dr. Purgon" peice does seem to be your best peice yet. The watercolor looks great and it has an overall appealing feel to it. Keep working on your lfe drawing and posing on the figure. I think you could get even more dramtic with your poses in ordewr to sell them. Cheers!

    Thanks for the comments, silvestri - yeah, it's a fine line when dealing with costume sketches for the industry...on the one hand, you want to "sell" the piece, but on the other hand there are times when a sketch goes to the work room and everyone stands around it saying, "what the hell? I can't figure out anything from this sketch..." Which is why I am not a big fan of "fashion drawing," (some of which can be seen on Project Runway) those really elongated quick sketches that use three lines to show us a little black dress...but you can't see the seams...or the waist...or any other pertinent details.

    Getting the pose is the trickiest part sometimes...I am definitely trying. Glad you liked the Purgon piece - that's another where I wish the pose were a little better situated for the character. Thanks for taking a look!

    Yeah, I like the wizard too - I did him one day at some lousy office temp job to pass the time...

    Attached are some more figure studies - some quick pen studies with a splash or two of water to work in some values...
