Re: And the next sketch is ......

Cool stuff. Donít think Iíve done a collage before. Fruit stuff looks yummy. I especially like the Wild seas one.

I think I only have one WIP I never finished, and I donít think I even have the actual page anymore, but Iíd rather just start over on it at this point.





Included two of the references I used to try and get all the details and poses down. Thought it would be funny to combine the main cast of one cartoon with what were really just meant to be joke characters from another.

Next is another work in progress

Mary that has an almost Klimt feel at this stage

Trying again - why not invent your own charactera? there was an online site - Poser??? with basic figures in all sorts of poses and different perspectives that I remember from years ago. Not sure if it's still free but worth a google search. Muscles, perspective etc were shown and so you could create your own characters from them

Re: And the next sketch is ......

This was done from the same 2 words - Wild Waves and is a charcoal drawing - I'm calling it in progress because I want to do it again in paint, adjusting things that I'm not happy with



next is a charcoal drawing .........

Re: And the next sketch is ......

Like how stormy that one looks, but definitely would be interesting to see it done in another way.

Vhere, when I was young Iíd get praised for drawing a lot of my favorite cartoons pretty accurately. I donít think it was malicious or anything, just the way some parents and teachers are to their kids and students. I guess eventually I just looked at it as a way to gauge my skill level, if I can make identical art. But I do think learning general anatomy and muscles and stuff would likely help a lot more; trying to create my own characters for planned comics now, Iím finding it a bit difficult to get them to look more natural.

Keep going with it. It can only improve with practice . And join a class if you can? A life drawing class would be brilliant for you.

Re: And the next sketch is ......

nice one again

ooh that fits with a current series



there was an original painting with collage, that I cut up digitally and created this grid - I'm planning a series of these at some point on a larger scale in paint/ink/pastel/whatever - maybe 6-8 inch squares.

the one below is actual collage from offcuts of experiments - about 10 ins square as a grid




next is something in a series you are currently working on............

Re: And the next sketch is ......

These are all great! I like the detail on the charcoal closeup, and the style of the older woman. The cut up pieces idea is pretty neat, too.



Done just the other day, main character from a series of games about a half genie, half belly dancer I guess? Turned out looking a little older than I intended, probably from basing it off a pose from a different stock image, but otherwise I think it came out ok. Experimenting with a mix of soft and bold shadows.

Was going to attempt another character from my own series but unfortunately Iím pretty busy the next few days.

Next piece is the first time youíve tried a new method with you art.

Re: And the next sketch is ......



this was my first go with cold wax and charcoal powder - loved using it but haven't had chance to have another go yet. I must.

same again next - your first attempts at something new .............

Re: And the next sketch is ......

I'm really liking what you all are posting so a big thumbs up!

Just finished this WIP yesterday featured in the AMAE forum Weekend Drawing Event. Title is "Sweetheart Seagull" as I started it on Valentine's Day using hubby's card envelope on the inside.

5x7 mixed media collage on paper. I used the inside of my sweetheart's card envelope which was brown to sketch the gull in ink with Micron 01 pen. Then collaged white paper for its head. Oil pastels, gouache and watercolor were other media used. The gull was then adhered to matboard with matte medium a brayer to smooth out air pockets.




Next is another mixed media
