The start of Chapter 2 begins with some work on skeletal structure. Here are some studies of the shoulder and pelvis areas of a male skeleton.
Back on track! Finally wrapped up most of my freelance obligations and I can start focusing on the Loomis book again. I did some drawing this morning and boy am I rusty.
Wow, it feels like I haven’t drawn in forever. And I think these sketches show it! Ack, I need to allot more time to daily sketching. I’m getting rusty. I’ve been spending all my time doing freelance stuff and promoting my comics, so the Loomis sketches have been lagging. Anyways, I attempted to turn one of these sketches into Batman, but I botched it.
Getting back into full figure sketches! Although I have to admit that I copied the sketches from the book, rather than come up with my own positions. Wanted to make sure I’m doing these things right before I get to that point. Plus, I draw comics all day anyways, so I’m constantly having to come up with positions from my imagination already! I could use a break from it every now and again.
This one was a bit of a challenge, mainly due to my struggle with drawing figures straight on. On a side note, I’ve been uploading my various webcomics on Tapastic.com recently. If you haven’t checked out my sci-fi series Praesidium, now is a good time to get in on the ground floor! It’s colored entirely in watercolor.
