Another Homemade Sketchbook

I am really good at starting sketchbooks but not good at filling them up.

I made this sketchbook out of some pages from a cheap sketchbook I got over 10 years ago. The paper isn't good quality, but it's okay to sketch on. I realized I haven't drawn with graphite in a long time, so I wanted to play around with it. I'm aiming to make each page somewhere between a sketch and a finished drawing. I don't want to spend too much time on them or get too preoccupied by little details, but I still want to get the idea across. Each drawing is 5"x7" and my plan is to make each drawing interesting to look at.

Here's what I have finished so far:

Re: Another Homemade Sketchbook

Wow, what cool sketches! I really like the second one, it totally reminds me of a cover art/poster for a horror film/novel or something along that line.

Re: Another Homemade Sketchbook

Cool work! The second and third remind me of movie posters for scary movies. How did you manage the first one without your eyes going buggy while you worked?

The first one was hurting my eyes, but these are interesting.

Good series of portraits, I like how you've done something a little different with each. I couldn't look at the first one for too long though! Really like the second one.

Re: Another Homemade Sketchbook

That first one absolutely screwed with my eyes, but they are all nicely done. Would like to see more.
