Sketches this Week

Ya, I'm trying to sketch a bit before work everyday. Not that I manage all the time, but w/e it keeps me going. Also, inspired by the web comic Hanna is Not a Boy's Name; it's wicked, I love the style. I tend to want to post the prettier sketches I do, but then I realized I shouldn't be so judgmental, my Deviant art is for pretty stuff (which is why I rarely update it >.>;;;).

Some classmates might remember those cheap recycled paper sketchbooks. Ya, I just found mine so I'm filling the remaining pages. This means pen works best. This also means simple is best because you can't get gradients or details on that rough paper. Or I can't anyways. My sketches aren't very random, mostly just me trying to be simple in clothing and poses. Also, that's my work gear.

Oh, Paper

I miss paper sometimes, I really do. I'm trying to get back into traditional stuff, it feels more engaging. I have a roll of paper I found in my parents' basement and instead of letting them throw it out, I now use it to sketch on. Once it gets too annoying to unroll to a blank section I cut it off. The roll is pretty big so I should be at it for a while, but I like the fact that I can unroll a long piece right over my desk and just get to it.

For some reason, when I upload these they are rotated, so rotate them to the correct angle... in your mind.

Joy to weekends. I also plan to go out every Friday and sketch at the local coffee shop. It reminds me of Toronto, overpriced drinks and all.

AWOL - sorry guys


I know I've been missing for a while, but I have been sketching stuff. I got a reminder from a friend of mine telling me I should remember to post more stuff so thank you, you know who you are. Always cool to know people are looking at my stuff.

I got into this online comic called Hanna is Not a Boy's Name and I just love the graphic style the artist uses on the characters. I can't emulate it much myself, but I wanna try drawing focusing more on the total gesture and motion of the character then the details of the anatomy and realism.

Anyways enough of that. Now for some sketch stuff.

I paint sometimes, honest. XD
