super quick trip back to memorial garden to draw that statue again. Just another quick study of it, I love that statue. Apparently there was a big picnic event at the Nelson! I didn’t know, and I was pretty dang bummed :-( #drawing #sketchbook #ballerina #bummed

Really been trying to loosen up, draw quickly, while giving these characters personality. Quick lunch sketch from yesterday, pen and copic marker. #drawing #sketching #sketch #lunchsketch #copicmarker

Had a really good drawing day, all day yesterday, Wednesday. Went to life drawing for 3 hours in the morning, and drew with a friend at a pretty hot spot in KC, after. Super inspirational day. Here are some things. Mix of 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 minute gestures. And a couple of statues from the plaza.

Too nice of an evening to do nothing outside. Went to the plaza in KC to do some quick architectural drawings!

Tonight’s life drawing pose. About 1.5 hours. She’s the best model, ever. #lifedrawing #figure #figuredrawing #drawing #sketchbook #pencil #graphite

I posted the WIP on Instagram, here’s the quick finish. Just meant to be a quick study, not a finished piece. About 1.5 hours. I put a blanket on my head to see how the drapery acted. Also added some small texture over the whole study. Trying to get better at painting the figure.

Sketches from the last few days. Really working on just getting a gesture for a pose down quickly, loosening up, faces and value studies of faces, and other things. Let me know what you think, please! :)

This is a study of a mech, illustrated by Takumer Homma. This one was pretty challenging, because of the rhythm of the shapes, and trying to have each shape relate to the other shapes correctly. After painting this, I definitely realize that if you can see shapes, you can draw anything. Check out Homma’s concept work, really dang inspiring. Read more: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php/279455-Sketchbook-by-Ferris#ixzz35WX7hEhT

For the next year or so, every week I’m going to work on a master study, from illustrations and illustrators who interest me and relate to what I want to do in the future. After that study, I’ll do an illustration based off of the master image, and try to use what I learned about the composition, paint style, etc. I chose to start a study with a piece by Darren Bartley. His concept work is amazing, and I think I can learn a lot from him. His on left, mine on right.
