Rommey - Commission WIP 3

She's really taking shape now, and I'm really enjoying this (watching Star Wars while drawing always helps!).

Some close ups below for detail. Again, apologies for the bad quality photos.

Rommey - Commission WIP 2

I've been really busy so I haven't had much time to work on this, but last night I did some of her muzzle area and her nose. I'm having some issues with the size of her eye on the left and the white whiskers on her lips. Much more work to be done!!

Fassy WIP 3

I've started on the beard now. I have never drawn a beard before. why did I decide this was a good chance to start???

Sorry for the poor photo quality. When it is finished I will scan it properly.

Fassy WIP 2

I think I have fixed his eyes. Not much else done on this and it doesn't look anything like him but never mind!!

Rommey - Commission WIP 1

My friends have a beautiful boxer called Rommey, and I thought she would make a lovely subject for a CP drawing.

So here is my preliminary sketch and the first bit of colouring. A long way to go but I'm looking forward to this one. I love Rommey very much and I will happily spend hours studying her photo!

I've just realised that I've put his eyes too close together!! I really hope I can salvage this as it's going quite well.

Fassy WIP 1

I have been a little obsessed with Michael Fassbender, star of Hunger and X Men: First Class, and he has incredible eyes and bone structure, so I am attempting to draw him.

Not much done so far, but I'm hoping to get some resemblence.

This is the reference pic. Wish me luck with this one!

Another super quick sketch

This time in 15 mins and pencil (soooo much happier in pencil!)

Much more pleased with it. I think the facial proportions came out ok.
Again, doesn't look like who it's supposed to but never mind!!

I think I've forgotten how to draw

It's been months. There has been no time and no inspiration. But today I forced myself to spend 5 mins on a silly sketch to try and get the creative juices going.

Not a big achievement, and it looks nothing like the reference, but it's something on paper for the first time in what feels like forever.

I'm hoping for more this weekend.
