With my new blogging schedule, I decided to make Friday the day that I show you what I’ve been working on during the week, and let you know about any random things that are going on in my life.


Here are the sketches I’ve done this week:

Ren from the short anime Shelter.


Random sketch of a male face.  I used a reference sketch I found on Pinterest.

I really need to work on drawing men’s faces, because normally I draw them too feminine or young-looking.


Random female face drawing.



I’m thinking of doing a weekly vlog where I go over what went on this week. Basically, it would be an overview of what I blog about during the week.  I think it might be kind of fun, but we’ll see what I have time for.


With my new blogging schedule, I’ll be taking the weekend off, so I will see you again on Monday!  Have a great weekend, everyone!



One of my recent sketches was of Soldier 76 from Overwatch.  I mostly drew him because he looks cool and I like his hair,  I don’t really play him on Overwatch (although I haven’t played at all in quite a while), but I think I may have played him during a special event.



I used a reference image from the Overwatch Wiki, so I didn’t actually design this myself, I pretty much tried to make it look as much like the reference image as possible.  I plan on using reference photos to help me with my sketches, but I also need to practice drawing people / faces / poses out of my head.


Until next time!


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


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!
