The Collector

Expanding on the balloon idea from last week. As I work on a more fragile line quality, I'm realizing that I need to spend some considerable time practicing anatomy.

brooksgolden - catch dreams

pet the tears away milky

pet the tears away milky by jeremy pettis

a little frustrating that scanners can't pick up some luminous colors correctly. The pink milk in this image is actually a brighter almost neon pink in real life, but when scanned it was barely visible. Anyone have any hot tips on how to accurately scan things of this nature? Maybe photograph it in daylight and create a hybrid image sampling colors from the photo?

Distorted Figures

More ballpoint pen oddities. I'd like to work more on different hatching techniques and being more selective with line weights. Eventually, I'll incorporate color but for now I'll marvel at how Jeremy defines color masses then adds his line work.

How do you start your drawings?
