Side or Profile View

I have to admit that Tomasz Migurski really reinforced this idea when he saw my sketeches. Sometimes it is better to start from a side or front view of a drawing. It makes it easier on the brain and allows us to think about and break down the components of a design. Once we are comfortable with the design we can tackle it in perspective using the side and front views. Also try drawing with a really dark pen to boost your confidence in committing to your lines. This sketch was done with a fine pilot pen and Sharpies.

So here is my first sketch I would like to share, one of many, many, many, to come…

Popped into my head few days ago transferred onto paper (Hammermill Color Copy 28lb) and bk ballpoint. I like how the marker (Copic or ChartPak) lays on that paper and the pen rolls smoothly, it scans nice and clean too.

The idea popped into my head after I walked the Zoo and saw a grizzly sitting there upright on its behind. I wanted to get the sitting gesture right and positions of the arms so I tried it a few times before I commited. The perspective is a bit shaky because I did not construct any boxes or axis lines… this is what happens… just showing this as an example of what not to do.

I am really glad and honored to be here. Enjoy. Thank you.

I found tracing paper…

Rummaging about at work I was suprised to find tracing paper. Hey, that’s pretty nifty. Nuthin’ like the feel of a pilot pen running across tracing paper.

Hey Guys,

Here is some of the work I’ve been doing from my newly aquired Burne Hogarth books…let me know what you think.


Amuro, ikimasu!

Back in July of 2007 I started working at Panasonic R&D. The first few weeks I had no computer so I drew a lot. I found this old doodle I did of the RX-78 mobile suit from GUNDAM UC 0079, one of the few mecha I can still draw from memory.
