    Method and Madness: Skunk's Sketches *UPDATE 3/30*

    These sketches were drawn with Pitt Pens in an attempt to break out of my normal method of anal detail.

    Drawn with help of a reference to practice foreshortening; the head isn't inked yet because I'm still deciding whether to add hair. This guy might turn into a decent drawing.

    More pencil work; reference used for the pose.

    And some messing around with conte crayon. Not very happy with the anatomy on this one.

    A plain background sketch to work on my furniture skills, again using PITT artist pens.

    And some fun with conte crayons. I really fucked up his foot, hence the stragetically placed grass. As a side effect, there will probably be lots of foot sketches in the near future.

    Hey Skunkitorium, you have some cool sketches here!! It's great to see you working on anatomy. Doing more life studies will make you a better artist. Don't worry about posting bad stuff. You get better by learning from your mistakes and continuing to draw. Hope this help bro. Lookin forward to see your progress!!

    I love working with anatomy, so definitely expect to see a lot more of those.

    Testing out the qualities of an Stanford ebony pencil. I'm pleased with the results; it has a tendency to show every stroke, but it also gives a nice, deep value that I'll definitely use in future drawings. I used a photo of Samoth taken during the Emperor reunion tour for reference.

    And a 90-minute still life drawn in ink.

    Fantasyartist, thanks! I went through a six-month period of not even touching my paints and brushes, and now I'm trying to scrape the rust off.

    A simple linework to experiment with the thickness of lines to create depth.
