A Study Of...


The one thing I dred drawing, that I will avoid drawing at all cost (you'll notice it if you look at most of my drawings) are hands. I know I'm not the only one who has trouble with them, but I have a particular hatred of drawing hands. I recently decided that I need to improve, so I been doing studies (mainly my left hand).

When in doubt, get some random stock pictures you've collected over the years, open Photoshop and see what happens.

I know what I want to call this pic but for the life of me I can't remember the word.
Idea behind this was type random on 3 different sites & make a cover from the results.
He got the wrong hair dye.

Changing the Style (somewhat)

In my "Chibi" drawings I tend to make them as colourful as possible to keep in with the cute theme that's going with them. When I started doing "Sin City" characters I realised it wouldn't look right if they were all brightly coloured, so I've had to change the style a little.
 As "Sin City" is mainly all black and white with no shading and minimal colour I couldn't produce these in my usual style, it would loose the feel the comics have. So these are a lot more dark then the others but I've tried keep the "Chibi" feel about it with the line work.

 But it's not only "Sin City" I've done this way. I got a request from an old friend to draw V from "V for Vendetta" and for anyone who has ever read it or watched the movie, I really couldn't o it colourful.
 This has more colour in it then the others but it's still got an dark edge to it. Incidently the fire is in there not only for comic value, but so the light from the fuse would allow me to show some features of V's clothing. Otherwise it would have been all black and V's head would of looked like it would of been floating in space.

So do you think this style was appropriate?
