Sketch A Day

Sketch when you can is a very good idea, many times I've sketched when I didn't feel like sketching but then I produce some fantastic ideas through sketching at any time and no matter what you sketch whether its stuff from your imagination or something in real life that inspired you it is best to sketch it down on paper to refer to again at a later time.

Sketching can be relaxing too as you sit down to draw think loosely what you want to create and it will come or if you need reference pictures to draw look through a magazine to get ideas or draw what you see which is always a favourite for aspiring artists. Some artists can imagine stuff that they've only glanced at and can recreate these images and I've often done this on several occasions.

There is that old saying "practice makes perfect" that comes to mind when sketching and drawing, art styles take time to develop so why not practice while you arrive at your destination, things do stick in your mind when you draw them enough, so get them pencils sharpened and paper at the ready because I've got a couple of videos for you here which involve me sketching, which is nice!

Demon Art Sketch

Sketching demons is fast becoming an obssession with the fantasy creatures and monsters that I can make up quite easily, this sketch is another head sketch of a demon with the classic horns and evil eyes.

The idea with quick sketching is to try and work quickly to capture some amounts of energy into faces and figures and that's what I love about the sketch process.

Watch the video!

Sketch A Dwarf

 This dwarf I sketched only the top half as I wanted to place a scroll with some writing underneath for an illustration for some other project. There isn't any fancy construction lines as I just build it up from the head and then the shoulders and sketch from there.

Watch the video to see the sketching process!

Fantasy Tree Sketch Idea

Sketching a fantasy tree I approach the idea with a few random but structured pencil lines which obviously are the tree branches and the wider tree trunk and then I add in the detail on the tree bark and much of the shading to help develop the sketch idea further....

The tree needs inking, so I'll try and do that and upload it here soon.

Watch the video!
