God knows why, but I am having a hell of a time comfortably doing a pencil sketch these days. The piece below, which was of course done over hastily in Photoshop, is all right.
These designs are better.
This graphite drawing is nice. This pen sketch is much more interesting.
Here are some more designs I was able to concoct off the cuff with a gel pen, while with a Col-Erase I'd be drawing a bland spherical skull for two whole seconds and groping aimlessly for a pose afterwards. I didn't use to hate the process of drawing so much. What happened?
Thanks to a post from Eric Scales, I have joined the Odosketch fray, testing out slightly varying designs I might use for my senior film character. I confess, my story portfolio focus has shifted now that I have a faint idea of where my efforts are supposed to go. (We have a portfolio class I'm not in yet, and I didn't ask quite enough questions prior.)
EDIT: Uh-oh. The embed links are blanking out on my compy, and so is the Odosketch server. Better post some screengrabs. As an aside, this paragraph would have made no sense twenty years ago.
