    This week's sketches. The latter half of the week was spent preparing for my Pummel Street Fight with sacredbob. I did not do a good job at drawing shapes, as OrphanGrinder suggested I should

    Some stuff related to my Pummel Street Fight with sacredbob. I was a bit disappointed with myself that I didn't leave myself enough time for a background again, but I really wanted to practice inking and colouring, and knew I would be murdered in the PSF if I didn't show with inks and colours, given that sacredbob always does that.

    There are a few glaring errors in the final piece in the cold light of day, such as the smoke/dust under Sheik being completely wrong from a perspective point-of-view, which I think largely came from drawing for an extended stretch of 7 or 8 hours with only short breaks. The bike took me ages, and you can tell in places where my work on the perspective started to fall apart, but I'm glad I tried. I was also very happy that Wario looks almost on-model. I think Sheik's pose works nicely from a dynamism sense, but the shoulder area is a bit of a mess, which I couldn't suss out even with lots of replication in the mirror.

    Light Lass for WSG #378, and my August Pummel entry.

    I wasn't thrilled with my Pummel entry, and New Men was obscure enough that I was never all that confident I completely knew what their normal costumes looked like. I thought the face of Reign in the front came out pretty well, and there was a decent sense of energy to some of the image. The composition was also ok, although Exit exiting the portal isn't great. The truth is that I felt little enthusiasm for the topic, and came close to churning out something that wasn't properly finished, especially after starting out with a very poor underdrawing. After seeing Skullone's piece I spent four or five hours trying to add a level of polish to the piece, but really I should have fixed the crappy drawing I started out with and built from there. I definitely learned some lessons on this one.

    Catchup on my commute sketches, from reference photos as always. I didn't get a seat for most of last week

    Hey, you did the shape drawing I suggested! Keep it up -- volume is key to really getting it into your fingers.

    Love the Wario/Sheik picture! Great simple, striking composition, with good negative space. I woulda brought Wario's waving fist away from his face just a bit, for a stronger outline.

    Is that Lara Flynn Boyle?

    The actress is Milla Jovovich, but I see what you mean; not the best likeness I've ever done. I'm working on constructing the face via the Loomis method and then building features on top, but for whatever reason I always end up needing to do a host of work on the nose and mouth area. You're right about the shapes.

    I think part of the issue is I tend to end up drawing what I find interesting, rather than what will help me improve, but I will try to draw shapes a little more often, as well as improve my grasp of perspective! I really need to do a good background for Pummel this month. Only managed one drawing today:

    An unfinished sketch from reference. Today's trains were shaky as hell, so didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

    Another from reference:

    I need to dig up some good references for Wild West Saloons and towns, but so far haven't found much good stuff.

    More sketches from reference, some of these done on the plane, which shakes a lot less than the train.

    A Chun-Li for Weekly Sketch Group #380. The right arm is in a very awkward position, and the right leg is too long. I think the face is okay though.
