2007 sketch book found

Done with pencil, mircon and copic marker. Most of these are while I was on the bus to work or at work. Something or the other.

Glad I found my book anyway

Barack Obama rama

There are a few things wrong, I know. The eyes are a little bigger than they needed to be and the brows are a little too thick I think, but it took a damn long time so here it is.

Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith is a great folk rock singer who committed suicide in 2004 by stabbing himself twice in the chest. (or heart)
He's a musical great and i'd suggest to listen to his "XO" album.
The music is a little sad for most peoples taste but if you're not bothered by that you should look him up sometime.

Obama, Kramer

I drew Barack just after he was elected and Kramer for fun sometime before that. I'd like to draw him a few more times tho, he's got such a cool face.

more sketch book art

I'm really trying to focus on getting things right the first time by using a pen to draw, but it ends up getting frustrating because sometimes my light sources gets toned down, and the value is never too dark, (since it's red i guess)or I miss the shape and it doesnt finish up clean.

I've also noticed how much less im exaggerating in turn for the realistic rendering.
Which I hate because it keeps me too hesitant.

I'll try to keep working around all that since I do these at work. It allows 8 hours a day almost to practice.

Anyway... the John C. Reiley and C. Rice were my first red inked sketches and they turned out to my liking, and I like the light source on Micheal Cera too.
So have at em.

Sketch book stuff

Sorry this took so long everyone.
These are a couple of sketches from my sketch book.

I used a red and black ball point pen, It worked out fairly clean.

I just wish I would color more often before I forget everything.

I've got lots of stuff in that book, so new posts comin very soon! (for a change)
