There are some days where most of my workload consists of preliminary sketches for future finished projects. I sometimes like the raw, quick and dirty feel of some of these rough pencils. Here’s a few from my current workload, and if you stay tuned in the future, I’ll likely be posting the final versions for comparison. Above a rough for Hudson Valley Magazine, and below a couple roughs for an upcoming book for Penguin, and below that a rough sketch for a River Styx assignment.
ADDENDUM (Wednesday): And another one for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine:
More life studies from that class I audited in either ’01 or ’02 at a local community college. Not much variety in models this semester, and I have a whole lot of drawings of this particular gentleman.
I seem to have a lot of gesture drawings and short charcoal studies from this class, and not very many time intensive pieces. Probably a result of the teacher’s priorities with the rest of the students (an advanced class is more likely to experiment with mediums and spend longer times on a single pose).
Below are a few of the quicker gesture drawings and studies.
