I’ve resolved to have better sketching practices this year and to make an attempt to start bringing all of the mediums that I work in together to try to organize all of the things I’ve learned in the last few years. Recently I have been inspired by a very talented guy names Jason Seiler to pick up where I started up and get back into drawing with ballpoint pens.
Today I finally went out and bought a brand new sketchpad, a couple of pens and got to work. My first sketch I just started working on something out of my head (not straight out of my head, I’ve been working on a similar project, but I just went at it as practice for sketching and with no reference). It felt really good to work small and light with the pen so I’m hoping that I’ll have some luck this year keeping up with it.
Anyway, this is the first one. I have been working on doing a charicature of my boss so when that comes out I’m sure you will see the similarities but in the end I think it looked more like another family member .
