Well these are gorgeous.
Another lichen drawing. I did think that the first one was better to start with as I was a bit distracted by trying to watch Hannibal while doing this one. It’s grown on me though. I also started trying out a bit of watercolour over the top but it’s a bit of a work in progress so I’ll post pictures of that when it’s finished.
I need to finish this off but I’m feeling especially lazy this afternoon. It’s quite nice not having anything to do, it feels like ages since I last had a day like this.
Trying to get back into drawing a bit after a long break. This was done using a photo of some lichen as a reference using wax crayons, which I personally like using a lot. I wanted to try and capture the textures and colours as much as I could but in a more stylised way, which I think worked out pretty well.
Forgot a bit how much I enjoy messing around with wax crayons. I think I prefer using them to oil pastels really, they’re less messy and you get more of the texture of the paper. At least that’s my excuse for using them anyway.
Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings
Always reblog his drawings, especially those ones of cats which I somehow haven’t seen before.
went to the Texas Memorial Museum last week and sketched some skulls; a giraffe, a warthog, and a pachycephalosaurus grangeri (or thick-headed dinosaur).
pen and ink, 2013
these are beauuuutiful
I miss drawing skulls today. Should really get back into drawing regularly. I’ve still got loads of reference images from the time I went to the life sciences department of my uni so it would be easy to do.
On the train to Angoulême, with our editor, François, sleeping in the back.
Dear Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba,
Please release a sketchbook, similar to what Craig Thompson did with Carnet de Voyage.
Everyone who loves comics and art
I second that request.
