Here, have a fox this morning. May he bring you joy. This was a quick sketch I did on Saturday morning this past weekend. Trying my hand at animals for once. I did it with a 0.5mm fineliner and used a photo reference. I think he turned out pretty well! This was after I spent the morning watching the 3D animated film “Igor”. It was a great movie! I really, really liked it. The thing that bugged me was that a lot of the film was blatantly exploited. I see Megamind and Despicable Me stealing directly from it and it makes me a little irked that it’s so obvious. John Cusack was amazing, as always. It’s really too bad that a great film like this was so unpopular. I never heard anything about other than like one newspaper article a few years ago. Oh well. However, the movie obviously inspired me and I had to draw something while I watched it. So I drew this slightly cartoony angler fish with the same fineliner:
I kind of miss just drawing on an open canvas and just seeing where it goes. This is an example of doing just that. It was a fun little doodle, I guess. The even cooler part about it was that this drawing was featured on Shadowness’s Daily Inspiration for Sunday! It’s always exciting to get featured on an art site. This weekend was a weekend of drawing. All of Sunday was spent in my sketchbook. I don’t know when I’ll get around to uploading them, but I’ll do my best to get them sooner rather than later.
Back to animating.
So, I did these sketches today with pal Keff, the two pirate videos I had just recently posted. I always seem to do my Clock Sketches with him. It’s a really good exercise a load of fun. What made it even better was that I picked up probably my favorite marker in the entire world to sketch them with. They are called PaperMate “Flair” Markers…not super expensive, but I really hope they last a while. Click here if you’d like to see them: FLAIR MARKER
Here is a couple new videos for Clock Sketch. It involves the new male model in pirate uniform, posing very naturally. I did a second video as well, only this one focuses on foreshortening. There are some great poses in perspective that would be great to use for perspective practice! I hope you will use these and that they will aid you in some way. I have new art to post and I will be doing so the next time I get a chance, but for now, enjoy some more gesture studies!
I found a new model to support Clock Sketch. The stock duo is fantastic for doing clothing and props. Great for concept art so I made them longer at 3.5 minutes. That allows me to fit 4 poses in one video. So start drawing and enjoy!
