We’ll start with the finished piece.
These are the core. characters from a new series called Gotham Academy, and I’m quite excited for it. It features the great work of Karl Kershal!
Next are the more prelinenary drawings. First the pencil sketch the the ink and pencil.
So we begin! Kicking it off with a little lettering and today’s awesome #Sketch_Dailies topic of Dredd.
This Dredd is inspired by Karl Urban’s fantastic job portraying the best judge in Mega City 1. While the movie isn’t for everyone, it does what it does really well. Plus I’d love to see a sequel. I have little hope of such a thing … but I’d love to see it.
Also you can tell where I wandered off of my guide lines for the lettering. But still I’m quite pleased with this.
I’ve known about #inktober for a couple of years. Several of the artists I follow participate regularly. Well, I’m gonna do it this year.
Now for those who don’t know #inktober is an artistic challenge – full details here: http://mrjakeparker.com/inktober – the basics are to do a drawing in ink and post it every day. This year I saw the idea to do the “half marathon” which is a picture every other day, which is what I plan to do.
I want to keep consistent on this so I’m gonna lay out a few more parts of this goal so those of you who feel so inclined can hold me to these plans.
1. Post every odd numbered day starting on the 1st
2. Post what I have, works in progress are fine. I’m trying to work on my perfectionist tendency, as in getting it to ease up.
3. Enjoy drawing in ink
I’m planning on spreading these images across my various blogs and social media. Specifically they will here and will spread to my other presences from there.
These Sketch Dailies are fun. I have a few to “catch up” on. 😉
This one is the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz (the movie version).
I recently started keeping up with Sketch Dailies in an effort to keep up my drawing. Still working on the schedule but I’ll keep on it.
This one was to coincide with How to Train Your Dragon 2.
