CANADA DAY SKETCH

So, for Canada Day this year, I wanted to do a sketch.  I couldn’t really think of anything really Canadian, but I remembered this cool outerwear clothing company I found on Instagram, called Canada Goose.  So, I found a picture on their Instagram account and used it as a reference photo.  Here is the pencil / marker sketch I made:

 

In other art-related news, I just bought a book called “Drawing the Head and Figure” by Jack Hamm.  Someone recommended it on a YouTube video I was watching, and it has really good reviews.  I’m going to start drawing through it, so a lot of the sketches you see for a while will be things I’m learning from the book, but I’ll try to turn them into something interesting.

 

Until next time!

INK SKETCH PRACTICE

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of portrait sketches, using reference photos.  Here is a pencil / ink sketch I made, using a reference photo from www.instagram.com/landosroom .

 

 

More sketches coming soon!  By the way, tomorrow is July 4th, so Happy Independence Day!

 

EMIKA CHEN

I realized I hadn’t blogged about a little sketch I made a while ago.  It’s nothing big, but I decided to draw the character Emika Chen from the book Warcross by Marie Lu.  Warcross is an interesting book about virtual reality, where the technology becomes too invasive.  I won’t give anymore spoilers!
