BB-8 Sketchbook Sketches

BB-8 Sketches

Planning and sketches in my sketchbook for a little BB-8 piece that I’ve wanted to do since I saw The Force Awakens last month.

Yes I have terrible handwriting when I write ideas down quickly.

sketch 3

A couple of sketches from my small A6 sketchbook from the past 2 weeks. I’m trying to make myself draw more while I’m out of my workspace/studio.

I should probably focus more on quick gesture drawings of people walking past for some variety but I’m always drawn towards unusual architectural spaces and objects

inktober 21

Inktober and Drawlloween day 21- 8 bit zombie.

An 8 bit zombie Luigi because I had no idea what else to do for this prompt and I at least wanted to make it a little bit interesting. I also like Luigi more than Mario- is that weird?

I should have known but creating artwork in this style with ink and a brush is quite annoying.

Inktober/Drawlloween 2015 #10 #11 #12

inktober 10 alien inktober 11 raven inktober 12 moon

 

Inktober and Drawlloween day 10, 11, 12- Alien, Raven, Moon

Having to post these together as I didn’t find the time over the weekend to get to my laptop to upload these.

These drawings are all tiny ones in my A6 sketchbook, definitely done for quickness but I still quite like how they turned out. The Raven and Moon piece evolved from very messy doodles.

The Moon piece also started out as a doodle that was supposed to be a wolf silhouette in font of a moon but the ‘wolf’ form that I sketched out reminded me of Haku (in his dragon form) from Spirited Away so I went with that.

All three drawings are inked with Uni Pin black fineliners, Daler Rowney acrylic ink and a couple of small, detail brushes.

Sometimes just making a mark on paper, putting paint down, splashing ink around gets me out of a restrictive headspace.

Don’t be tempted to overthink the marks that turn your tiny inklings into vibrant, expanding ideas.
