Quick Warm-up sketch.

This is generally how my drawings start out life, as a very quick and rough sketch. In these quick sketches I mainly concentrate on Gesture, Anatomy, Perspective and Silhouette.

I then draw over my sketches on a new layer refining the drawing and adding more detail in a more finished clean line style. Sometimes I feel that the first sketch that I do is often the one with the most life in it. This year I resolve to try and keep the looseness and vibrancy of these initial sketches in my work.

This one was completed in about 15 minutes or so while I was warming up this morning. I kind of like how it came out, hopefully I'll come back and do more of a finished version later.

Ruff warm up sketch "Victorious Boxer!"

I should probably put some feet sticking into frame of the vanquished boxer or something similar!

Ray BB8 Sketch

Finally got to see the new Star Wars movie last week which I really enjoyed. I especially Loved Rey and BB8, so when I was sketching today that's what I started to draw.

I quite like how this sketch came out at the moment but I'll sit on it for a bit and come back to it with fresh eyes in a few days time. My intention with drawing this is to paint it up and make a finished piece that could possibly go in my folio.

Rey and BB8.
