In my weekly hour long show on Saturday (23:00 CEST) I decided to draw Marilyn Monroe. I had practiced how to sketch her earlier today, and did some of the tutorials in “How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way” by John Buscema, where he covered how to draw beautiful women. This is one worthy for a rematch next Saturday.

This sketch is more or less the same pose as the reference photo, but completely constructed from basic shapes (no tracing was used). This is a huge improvement over what I did earlier today.
After I did the formal 3/4 perspective view, I tried a front view, using a simpler drawing style. Not sure what I was doing, I got these results, which aren’t bad, just not as refined as what I did earlier.
Super quick sketch of that versatile comedic talent of Hollywood. I wished I could draw as well as he can act. Drawn with felt-tip marker pen in 2 minutes.
Super quick sketch of Jean-Claude Van Damme, the Muscles from Brussels. Note that I didn’t have time to check the position of his ears, and that the eyes are also a bit out of whack. 2 minutes with felt-tip marker pen.
Totally off-model and only resembling MM’s ugly look-alike. Still, I explored what I should still work on.
Later today I will be trying to record another session on Ustream, on my channel Pencilcast.
