olympics 2018

ANGELA ZIEGLER AND SHAUN WHITE

I have finally started the new phase of my art journey, where I focus on character design and drawing people!  I am super excited about this, because drawing people is what really got me back into art around a decade ago, and I think it’s what I will be the most happy working on.

Here are three sketches I made this week:

 

A sketch of a girl in a touque.  I used a reference photo from https://www.instagram.com/portraittpage/

 

My first sketch of Mercy from Overwatch!  The reference photo I used is a pretty common image of her. Mercy’s real name is Angela Ziegler, hence the blog post title.

 

Since the Olympics are currently on, I decided to draw an Olympian.  This is the American snowboarder, Shaun White.  I used a reference photo from a BBC article about him.

 

I’ll probably stick to drawing Olympians for now, because it’s a good opportunity to draw people in uncommon positions.

 

That is for now!  More sketches coming soon!
