DFW Sketch Club Meetup 2009-02-14

Had fun meeting some other artists at the Borders in Lewisville. Ended up chatting almost as much as drawing, but here are a few I did. Will I ever draw anything again besides disembodied heads? Hmmm...


That red I used looked like ColErase red on my tablet but looks almost DayGlow pink here. Maybe a color calibration is out of date or something, need to look into that.

The Doctor

Some sketches while I watched a marathon of Doctor Who that's been accumulating on my DVR for weeks...



This guy started as an "experiment" in inking (to say I suck at inking is one of the understatements of the year) and I ended up shading in some too. The beauty (and curse) of tone and color is that it helps cover a multitude of drawing sins...Also, some sketches of my son, and some girl sketches from a couple days ago.

Working on it...

Yes, I know, nothing for a few days...I've done a few pages of sketches (not enough, certainly, but some) but nothing worth showing. Working on setting aside blocks of time for focus on drawing rather than just squeezing it in whenever I have time and/or "feel like it" (which is rarely, to be honest).

They're not drawings, but I do have some photos of our trip down to meet my parents in Austin and San Antonio. Some turned out nice:

One of the great things about photography is the really extreme ways that the camera sees that the eye doesn't -- I just love wide angle and telephoto shots (you'll see few examples of a "normal" focal length in my photographs). Just so you know, it's a complete myth that you can point a camera at something and capture it the way you saw it ;)
