Quick Sketches

10 Apr

Like yesterday I did some quick sketches to teach myself to draw faster. This time I took an image of Bob Hope and Fred Astaire in a scene from the movie Holiday Inn.

All 4 sketches were done in 3 minutes. You can clearly see that each one gets better than the one before. It seems 3 minutes is long enough to catch a likeness.

I used a felt pen marker on folded copier paper (A4 format unfolded).

This warm-up sketch is based on a photo I took of one of my cats, Rasheed.

I did no real prep on this one, so the proportions are all off. That should teach me to do drawing in a certain order. Big overall shape first, then going into ever more finer details. Maybe some day I can just draw without such prep, but not this day.
