Motorcycle Sketch Demo- 1968 Benelli 175cc

I have been meaning to sketch out my motorcycle (my grandpa’s old bike) for some time now.  I started with just a simple papermate fine point on marker paper with the sketch below.  Feeling out the shapes, silhouette, proportions and placement of each part.  There is lots of room in the engine area, because Benelli used this frame for 4 different size engines (125, 175, 250 and 360cc!).  Click on each image below for the step by step demonstration!

Smokin!

Been really inspired by Brian Viveros lately, I definitely want to own some of his art one of these days! Took about 5 underlays to get this one right, its still to heavy in line work, but the body pose feels right. Done on trace paper with razor point, chartpack and a bit of prisma.

Dynamic Figures

Hey Guys,

I’ve been super inspired by Spencer Nugent’s Sketch-A-Day and I’ve taken it upon myself to do the same thing! So here is the first one I copied some stuff from Burne Hogarths Book “Dynamic Figure Drawing” Used a pilot razor point 2 on trace.

Smart Car.

Pretty straight up…time to draw a Smart Car!  They have such cool little personalities,  it makes it easy to capture the character like feel that these cars have.  Used a ultra fine point Sharpie and Pentel Sign Pen to bold up the out side lines.  Keep it loose and free… Enjoy!

Sketch Warm Up!

Feeling tired and rusty?  Been a while since you last sketched? Need a pick-me-up, that will get your marker started?  Sketching warm ups are the best way to break that silence between your pen and paper.  It will help your brain visualize your next move and learn to build confident lines.  This technique shown here is most commonly taught at Art Center in Pasadena, and Scott Robertson being the biggest proponent!  I threw on his DVD and did a little sketch warm ups.

Maker Faire- San Mateo, Ca

Sketched these out while working over at the Maker Faire last weekend.  Love the Maker Faire, its like a steam/cyberpunk party mixed with a circus!  This was the 4th year I have gone/worked at the Maker Faire, and it was a lot of fun this year!

bird flu zombies vs. pig flu zombies!!!

Who would win?  I feel like the aerial attack of the zombie birds would really take the zombie pigs by suprise…but once the pigs got ahold of the birds, they may be no match for the ferousious jaws of the zombie pigs!  Your thoughts?!?!?birdvspigsps…this sketch was inspired by Jon’s amazing Pig Flu Zombies sketch below…if you have not seen it, take a good look!

Inaugural Lineweights…

Hello all,

As the inaugural posting for Lineweights, it just seemed right to start with the tools we work with and how they can play an important role in a sketch.  We will be posting sketches daily from our sketchbooks…as a creative expression, a means for progression and hopefully a bit of inspiration for  others…. so please check back.

Enjoy Lineweights!
