This drawing is a response to a photo put on his tumblr blog by thefrogman, captioned: “Nazis…I hate these guys.

As you can see, I’m lousy at drawing hands. It kinda ruins the drawing. Nonetheless, I tried my very best, and the message is very clear.

That is all.

More Tweetbird designs

20 Jul

I had so much fun drawing these sketches of a little bird called Tweetbird. The idea of Tweetbird was born out of the bland designs you can download for free from the Internet. If you want a “real” design, you obviously have to pay for it. Since I guess I’m somewhat more skilled in drawing than the average Twitter user, I decided why not draw a better bird myself, one that could be used in a simple comic strip.

This bird is all over the place, drinks a lot, and has to sleep it off.

So there you have it. I think the birdie needs more work, and some pals for him to interact with. At this moment, the character is still all over the place. Sometimes he’s a seagull, other times he’s a blue Blackbird. Consistency is key when you want to draw a comic strip.

That is all.

Drawing Unknown Faces, part 186

20 Jul

This is an inked drawing, based on an underdrawing that in turn was based on a photo I found on the Flickr photo stream.

Drawing Unknown Faces, part 186

I had to do some editing on the scanned image, because some parts that were outlined looked better when not outlined. This is something I still have to learn. When should you put an outline around a shape, and when not. Of course, the outer edges of the head should be outlined (or should they?). Doing it on the inner edges can look strange, especially when the edge isn’t well defined, as is the case with most women. I’m sure that in men, who have more angular features, putting outlines around shapes inside their faces works very well.

It all comes down to anatomy. Where are the boney parts of the face, and where are the soft, fleshy parts? I really should go back to studying Bridgman, or similar, to extend my grasp of the human face and body.

That is all.
