Sketchdumps and YOU!

Notes: Here's a bunch of sketches I did over the last few weeks. You'll see a few styles that I tried out for fun. A Pup Named Scooby Doo and Pound Puppies are shows that I miss profoundly. Thank goodness for DVDs. These were mostly drawn on ustream over the past few days! ENJOY more below.

Notes: A running joke in all of my UStream sessions is that I don't like to draw pants. I feel like pants waste time for so many things. There are some sketches of a fox character named Orla who has effectively become a member of my 'ragbag'. I have been trying to get the feeling behind her. Also Pound Puppies is love. I drew a bunch of sketches of Cooler.

Notes:Above are more ustream sketches. I think I was trying to practice more drawing multiple characters in the same image. There are a few up there that are like that. More playing with that Hanna-Barbera style and drawings for friends above as well!

Notes: More sketches. The Rhino is for a contest on Don Bluth Animation's Message Board. I have never drawn a Rhino before and god knows I tried really hard. There are some more sketches of Orla, just trying to get a feeling for her. Some other sketches of my friends character's wearing suits.

That's all for now!

Notes: Yes, there were 8 more of these prior to this and if you’re good little bloggers, I’ll post em up. Anyway, to the sketches. I have been doing a lot of UstreamTV lately. On there I sketch, and the people that come to watch me, who are the best in the world, ask me to put them all together. Some of them never see color, some of them do. Either way, you get to see what it looks like rough.

The first image in the top left was drawn using a picture drawn by another artist, Evana Love, as reference, just in case people ask about it. I did it for funsies, with no malice or intent to harm reputations. It was FUN.

Other than that little disclaimer the rest of them are pretty self explanitory. ENJOY THEM!

Notes: The sketches in the green are of a friend of mine named Betsy’s character. I draw a lot of inspiration from her. Her style is so lively and fun, I hope that I captured her well. The rest are pretty self explanitory. I’ve been really trying to think a bit more expressively lately.

Notes: I colored one of the sketches above. YAY COLOR!
