Gimme some of that old time black and white 
15th-Dec-2010 04:45 pm
I finally got around to scanning a few things and am putting up some of my real media black and white work. Go here to see some of the latest pen and ink fish from work. I've also been keeping a sketchbook with me on the commute to work for those times when I forget my book. The sketchbook's from Target and has really cheap rough pages so I'm not as precious with the drawings. It also means, however, that the paper tends to catch the pen and makes for stuttery lines that aren't as clean as I'd like, especially since I tend to sketch on the train with the sketchbook held vertically. Here are a few of the sketches from my commute.

Hand study.

Quick sketch of someone at the rail platform.

Hand study of someone carrying a pile of papers.

A labeled image so I don't forget what the mess of lines means later.

One of the earlier people studies where I was brave enough to sketch her because she was mostly asleep.

Someone intent on his iPhone.

Another annotated sketch.

A woman reading a mass market paperback.

A man watching a movie on his iPod/iPhone.

A woman with interesting hair.

One of the longer sketches. She had a beauty that I wasn't quite able to capture.

Hee hee, lumpsucker! Great sketches, I like how the faces and hands are more finished and shaded while clothes and other accesories are more loose and scribbly.

Yup, lumpsuckers are fun! Sketching on the train is definitely a great way to explore light and shading and how diverse human faces are!

Good job exploring the way fabric falls! I've always found it the most difficult part of drawing humans (unless they're nekked).

Yeah, I find it very hard to make it up, so study, study, study!

Hehe, nekkid huuumons. Which reminds me, I need to get into a figure drawing class at some point. My nekkid human drawing skills are rusty.
