Warm up sketch: Medic

My grandfather was a medic during World War II and spent his time pulling wounded men off the battlefield in the Philippines. He never talked much about the war, just a few stories here and there. One day while driving him to Home Depot he said, somewhat out of the blue,  “Grandma gets mad at

Daily Sketch: A Girl on a Bench

For today’s warm up we have a girl waiting for a bus. Or an airport shuttle. Or maybe a taxi.  Who knows? All I know is that her suitcase is full of Fruit Roll-ups.   Subscribe to this blog’s RSS feed.

Daily Sketch: Tigress (Kung Fu Panda)

Daily Sketch for February 29, 2012 – Tigress from Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda. The last of the Pixar/Dreamworks sketches.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it.  Next month I’m going to try and do an original character design every day.  Doing these sketches has helped me branch out a bit and try to get more practice at

Daily Sketch: Syndrome (The Incredibles)

Daily Sketch for February 28, 2012 – Syndrome from Pixar’s The Incredibles Today I threw a little ink wash for some greytones on the daily sketch.  Well, more of ink backwash, since I used whatever was in the cup I use to rinse out my brush.  It’s been sitting there a few days.

Daily Sketch: Kung Fu Panda

With today’s daily sketch I have a confession to make:  I have never seen Kung Fu Panda.  I’ve heard how good it is, but for some reason I just never have gotten around to watching it.  I have no excuse.  I’m sorry America.  I have failed. How about a sketch of him?  That’s got to

Daily Sketch: Astrid (How To Train Your Dragon)

Today’s daily sketch is Astrid Hofferson from Dreamwork’s How To Train Your Dragon.  Clearly I miscalculated how much room I had left at the top of the page. You would think having a skirt full of large spikes would be a liability.  But then again, I don’t know much about fashion except that stoic, hungry

Daily Sketch: Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon)

Today’s daily sketch is Hiccup from Dreamwork’s How to Train Your Dragon.  Dragon’s were really making the rounds in movies and books a few years ago (we wrote one into Vex way before it became the thing to do, honest!) This sketch was done with the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, and it definitely flavors the
