Sheldon Cooper Drawing Finished

I could refine this drawing more and edit some of the crosshatching but I really don’t have the energy for it so I’m calling the Sheldon Cooper drawing finished.

I have a book called Rendering in Pen and Ink that I haven’t read yet but it goes over all of the skills necessary to crosshatch like a pro.

One Minute Gestures

I feel as though I’m beginning to develop my own method for seeing the gesture in figures and recording it quickly. It’s a combination of what I’ve learned from The Natural Way to Draw and Steve Huston’s book Figure Drawing for Artists.

Daily Composition and Sketch

I sketched my cat Sullivan then did a composition of an elderly man taking out some trash.
