This was a drawing for class. We had three words we drew from a hat that the project had to convey. One of my words was surreal, and although this drawing isn't stylistically surreal, I still find Rush Limbaugh to be a larger than life character (in more way than one.)

As far as the drawing goes, I wanted to keep it loose, yet controlled. Rather than using a dip pen like I usually do, I used a brush to ink the entire thing. It gave me some very interesting lines which I enjoy. It was a bit more difficult to get a likeness since I had a little less control with the brush, but It turned out okay. To add the value, I shaved a little pile of charcoal off a stick, watered it down and used it just like watercolors. It worked out pretty well. I was hoping that it would be easy to erase in the event of a mistake, but that didn't work out as planned. All in all, I think it was a success. At the very least I was able to experiment with a new process.

Fowl John Post 2

Here are the next three pages for this plague of a comic book I've been trying to work on in my spare time. I have noticed some aspects of the process moving faster, but it's still taking a bit of time. More to come soon hopefully.

Digital life drawing!

We started a 6 hour pose in my drawing class today. I decided to go digital with this one. I think I need to get one good finished digital drawing under my belt. This one's on its way, but we'll see if another 3 hours will do the trick.
