Relaxed lines. Aesthetic colors. Detailed simplicity. Punk chicks. Those are the four things I have been focusing on art-wise since December. I received great feedback on my Samurai Guy from Reddit this past week. So I feel like I’m headed in the right direction. Just like the never ending road on this website’s header: I’m movin’ forward.
I’ve been creatively empty the past few weeks but I had to draw something. I’ve been sketching a lot of punk-ish cyborg girls and figured I’d head that direction yet again but it turned into this guy. I’ve been experimenting with negative space and I’ve been describing my color pallet as “Icees”. I like this guy. But I don’t love him. Movin’ forward.
Nothing beats a good monster movie. Which are unfortunately becoming a bit of a rarity these days. But, alas, Kong: Skull Island is about to change all that. It’s true cinematic adventure escapism at its finest.
And nothing beats sitting down and just drawing what comes to mind. No pose reference…no final mental image…no idea where you’re going as you put pen to paper. This is the result of that. I like drawing like this and I need to do it more.
