Toned paper drawing of Abraham Lincoln. Usually, I combine at least 2 reference pictures of the subject to make the drawing more of an original. References for this drawing were taken from the April 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
Another sketch on toned paper where one character gave life to a second and then a third, and so on, until the page was full. Done on toned grey Strathmore loose leaf 16x20in paper with graphite, white charcoal, and hits of Micron. Enjoy
Another random sketch with some make-believe characters and undiscovered creatures prettified with a well-known colored pencil brand; Prismacolor…
… more scatter-brained art coming soon.
Solace was found…
in the strangest, most unheard of corners and edges of the planet. Where endangered creatures and outcasts prospered, there she would be; sharing stories and imparting philosophies amongst a population eagerly seeking what she had already found.
I really want to get better at writing, so that means I’ll probably have to start reading more. I’ll start by re-reading one of my favorite books, “Hatchet,” by Gary Paulsen. It’s a short read, but one of the only fiction books I own In the end, I would love to write a huge story, involving all of my demons, aliens, and creatures. I really have no clue how to compose a story though, so buckle up for the journey.
He was exiled…
… to Planet 16. Considering himself king in this strangely empty stretch of humid land, he adopted a crown.
Figured I’d start giving these creatures some sort of a backstory. Keeping it to a few sentences for now though.
This piece here was done with mainly graphite and white charcoal. Prismacolor colored pencils were used for the eyes, galaxy gem, and background elements. Winsor & Newton gouache was used for the finishing touches on the highlights and stars in the galaxy gem. All done on a 10×13 piece of toned paper. Cheers!
