I've been pretty busy since Ohayocon in late January, so I haven't had as much time for sketching as I'd like. Between painting Chapter 4 and finishing up con commissions, time for sketching was pretty sparse. When I lose sketching time, I often neglect to do little doodles, and my work can stagnate and become stiff. Towards the second half of this batch, I made a concentrated effort to do looser sketches- mostly value studies.
Still noodling around with that technique.
WARNING: Possibly NSFW Figure Studies below the cut.
This technique is great for monochromatic value studies with figure work. I've been having some trouble with values in my watercolors, so I figured some practice would help with that.
One of my Valentine's presents was a Good Housekeeping cookbook, purchased for all the pictures of food. I guess someone was listening when I said I wanted to do more food studies.
Gesture studies of my cat, Bowie.

Late January Early February Sketchdump
Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
