Drawing Day


It was raining this afternoon and I thought about this
little story then I took it a bit further and added some colour.

Drawings: from the past

I wanted to share with you a few drawings I did while I was a student at John Donaldson Institute here in Trinidad. This course was intense and heavy with projects and assignments and I drew A LOT! I was going through some old drawings this week and came across these...oh the memories!



Just one of the many studies I did of the skeleton which took patience and practice.




An observational drawing: this one is from an assignment I did of my mother sleeping.





I also did drawings of my own between assignments and this one I did on
a 18"x24" sheet of paper. I may have copied the figure from a magazine or something
but I remember loving the pose and the angle of the body. The character does look like
I was drawing it for a comic book story and I was thinking perhaps comics has
been with me longer than I thought.

Short Comic: Mood


A short comic about a feeling I remember as a teenager
and parents never understood what it was all about.

This is a short story I'll be updating on my blog as I continue
to work on this comic. It's going to be 16 pages in length.
I'll be updating this post with new pages.

Leaning


With this type of pose where I can't see the other side of the model's frame,
it's really easy to get fussy about what I need to focus on, so I usually
take a walk around the model. This has always helped me
to draw what I'm seeing better.

Drawing - Arm & Leg



Another drawing where I focused on the body parts.
I learn so much from looking at these sections of the body. 
This drawing was completed using charcoal.

An Outing


I'm liking these colours for this scene: It's a day out with her mum and
the only thing she wants to get is that stick on the ground!

Busy Morning

I like to memorize places I have seen often and this sketch
was done from memory. It's a very busy junction in Trinidad (San Juan)
and it's usually filled with noises from the traffic as people go to work and school.
