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 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 for Feb 27, 2012 – Dory from Pixar’s Finding Nemo. February is winding down and it’s gone by way too fast. Only a few more days left for the Pixar/Dreamworks theme. Next month I may do some original character sketches every day to stretch my brain a little.
Daily Sketch for February 24, 2012 – Bruce from Pixar’s Finding Nemo. When I was in middle school I was obsessed with sharks. There was a book in the library all about shark attacks and I must have checked it out a dozen times. It gave me a healthy fear of the ocean, though looking
Daily Sketch for February 23, 2012 – Elastigirl from Pixar’s The Incredibles Today I was walking down the street and heard a man on the phone say “To cut to the chase and make a long story short…” I guess the story was so boring he needed it to be short, but he enjoys cliches
Daily Sketch for Wednesday, Feb 22, 2012 – Lightning McQueen from Pixar’s Cars. Cars have always been hard for me to draw. I have to have lots of reference and it takes a lot of brain power for me to be able to pull one off. So naturally I started this sketch three times before
Another week of daily sketches is underway. Today we have Russell from Pixar’s Up. I was never in boy scouts. I think my brother might have been briefly, but it didn’t last long. We had the Boy Scout handbook that showed all different kinds of animal tracks and how to make signals for other hikers
The first daily sketch of the week is an alien from Pixar’s Toy Story. My Pentel Brush Pen ran out of ink, so I used a traditional brush instead. Maybe you can tell the difference if you look at the last couple days compared to this. It’s an example how a different tool flavors the
Today’s daily sketch is EVE from WALL-E. EVE is made up of such large, open shapes that I thought I needed to throw a little color on there to make it feel like I wasn’t cheating. The colors were (very) quickly thrown in using Photoshop. As simple as she is (and that’s simple in a
Today’s sketch is Sully from Pixar’s Monsters Inc. In case you’re just tuning in, February’s daily sketch theme is Pixar/Dreamworks characters. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, Guys. Consider this your reminder to go buy something before it’s too late.
