Day 250

I've been wanting to get this one drawn for a while. I dig the expression and attitude the subject is displaying and I believe I captured it well. This drawing is small, about 2.5" in height and done with a single pencil. I would have liked to add more dark tones in there but to save warping the paper I had to settle for a lighter grey. Either way, I'm pleased with it.

Day 246

Grabbed the pencils and vowed to myself that I would draw something that had variance of values. This is what I got:

Day 243

I've been asked to draw an image to be later gifted and I've yet to actually sit down and work it out. However, I thought I'd get my bearings for the image and doodles out this today.

Day 235

Broke out the pencils for this. I was surprised at how fast I scribbled this out, about 30 minutes. There were some values that I left out that would have provided for a lot more detail but that would have also provided for a longer draw time. One mistake that I've made while doing this 24 hour sketch is drawing all day. I did a lot of that during December and it kind of burned me out.

Day 233

Here tonight's drawing. I'm liking this.

Day 232

Just another poor sap fallen victim to my random google searches. He looks pretty worn down which is why I chose him. Good facial expression.

Day 231

I don't make a lot of statements. But I felt maybe I should draw about the walk on Congress for citizenship. This country was built on immigration. Let em have it. They can figure out how it's not so great once they're stuck here.

Day 228

Just a tree drawn with a stylus and adobe ideas. I've been holding on to this drawing for weeks now. Not sure why I haven't uploaded it, but here it is at last!

Day 227

Lets have some fun. I would say it's because I couldn't think of anything to put in her thought bubble other than eegads! But that's not true, I also thoughts of (sighs). Yeah, I guess I'm short on ideas. So I'm asking you 24 hour sketchians to insert your own dialog. Keep it clean, or not.

Day 226

This was an over achievement, but that's not a bad thing. Again, this is a negative drawn image. The smoke is a bit much. It needs to be more subtle / simple. I like the facial features. They aren't perfect but it works. I am definitely excited about drawing this way. And I thought drawing white on black was hard. After drawing this, which took about half an hour, my brain hurts. I love it!

Day 225

Another negative image. I'm diggin' how this turned out. It started out a regular google image search day and when I saw this is reminded me of the drawing I did before of the woman jumping with the chalk. I wouldn't be surprised if this is from the same photo shoot. I decided that the image had too much black in it and instead of doing a white charcoal on black paper I instead drew the white in the photo with pencil. After I was done with that I ran it through a negative filter and ran up the contrast.

Day 224

I'm tellin' ya, I may have been silent for the past few weeks but as I said before I've been drawing here and there. This one I drew I think about 2 weeks ago but forgot to post. So here you go: it's a grotesque rendition of my wife and me. I sketched this out in about 30 minutes while I was waiting for the best software in the world, Revit, to run a query on some linked model's family and purging some 800 unused families.
I like how the filters made this look, nothing taken away from the true value of the original drawing.

Day 223

I'm gonna have to get back into the swing of doing this blog. Here's another negative image without the original. It's sort of an homage to one of my favorite bands right now, The Joy Formidable. They have a contest going for artists to draw a design for the front of the lead singers dress. I tossed a few ideas around but seeing as this one is a rendition of their album cover I'm pretty sure it's not eligible. Still though I think it turned out pretty cool. I used the rose that I posted last time within this design.
