Skmetch dump


Unfortunately I don't have regular access to life drawing here in Dundee... so the next best thing is doing quick drawings from photos. Feels like cheating! But better than nothing. Here are my most recent from the old sketchbook.

Ken :D

1,6 & 7 are beauties - I think they feel the most loose and naturally derived.
It's not cheating - it's practice! n.n

Kenny these are really beautiful. I concur with Laurent. It feels really different for you, In a good way. Weather concious or subconcious I like this new direction.

Shucks! Thanks guys! :D

I'm not sure if it's conscious or not Wes, but I have recently been treating my "life drawing" more like art than say my illustration and character stuff which I treat more like design... if that makes sense? Trying to draw inspiration from my favourite artists (Sargent, Drew Struzan) They use such beautiful lines. I hope it is having some effect.

It makes perfect sense. Someone said to me once that when I do life drawing and design work it's like I'm using 2 different processes. He told me to combine them. Mix and match. It's all drawing. Whatever your doing man it's working. Feels fresh. Looking forward to more.
