Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

These are great. I went back through your previous years' threads, it is interesting to see how your style progressed. It gives me hope that I too will develop a distinctive voice in my sketches.

I can see the Greek influences in Oty's choices. All of these are great!

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

Fun

Do you draw the grid out before you start or during?

I'm thinking it would be fun to experiment with one of the Harlequin/Columbine series in this way.

Grids first. Usually I grid out four or six weekends ahead. I try to have 18 boxes on a two-page spread but I'm not always lucky. It started when a WDE challenge was to draw everything as thumbnails. I then did it a few more times as a way to get to know the references and figure out which spoke to me asking to be done larger. And now ... I always do it

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

I had to go see the reference on the "Ditched the Boyfriend" one.

Great work. Looks like the eyes have it the last couple of weeks.

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

It's amazing that you can crop the picture in tight and yet still can identify what it is. Great job.
