February and March 2015 Sketchdump



February Challenge

Draw at least three faces from Humane per day as a warm up.

While I try to practice figure drawing at least somewhat regularly, I often don't really focus on faces in my attempt to quickly capture gesture.  During this February, I made it a point to draw at least three faces from Humanae per day.

General Sketches

February and March kept me pretty busy, but I tried to make time to do some general drawing.







Emoticon Inspired Facial Expressions



#BlackOut Inspired Studies

So many beautiful selfies uploaded to Tumblr during #BlackOut inspired me to do some sketching.









Knight School Concept

Knight School is the comic I'm working on for 1001 Knights, below are the concepts for the grandmother knight (Viveca), her three grandchildren, and her 9 students.
 




 
 Gemsona- Moonstone

So many artists have been drawing Steven Universe inspired Gems, I had to noodle one up for myself.



 Scans from Fude Pen Ink Tests

When testing out new pens, I usually sketch up something to ink, and those fully inked pieces are often an afterthought in the pen reviews.  I thought I'd scan a few favorites to share.

 Style Tests

I didn't do as many style tests in February and March as I would've liked, but I managed to do a few.

Below the cut are some NSFW figure studies, but that's it.  If you're not comfortable with nudity for the sake of study, you can skip that part, there's only three below the cut.
