Reddit’s Sketch Daily – Still Life Skulls

SketchDaily-027-StillLifeSkullSo about a week ago I put in an order for and received a skull replica so I could do some more studies. It’s not the most accurate thing I think I’ve ever seen, but it will do good for what I need. Anyway, when I was doing some set up I thought it would be nice to share with the sketchers at Reddit so I took several photos of Morte (yes I named the thing) then tossed them up on my imgur account.

Reddit’s Sketch Daily – Free Draw

SketchDaily-026-FreeDrawFridaySo yesterday I had an utter lack of motivation for both topics on the sketch daily. I had tossed the idea of drawing a generic dragon but then fell on the idea of doing something a little different from the norm. Today was extremely slow in terms of work load, so in between small clips of productivity, I was fleshing out this drawing a lot. Some issues with perspective… horses leg seems too large as well as the head, and the trunk seems a touch too short. But over all it was a fun little assignment.

Reddit’s Sketch Daily – Sharks

SketchDaily-025-SharksI figured enough people were going to draw Great White Sharks or Tigers so I did a little looking around to see what other interesting sharks swam the big blue seas. Thresher sharks, so I learned, have tails that are roughly equivalent to the length of their body and will use them to stun fish so they can feed. I also discovered they will fully leap out of the water. So yeah… I can imagine the sharks are having fun while they do that.

Reddit’s Sketch Daily – Heat

SketchDaily-021-HeatSome sketches just need color to get what you’re attempting to convey.  I did a quick black and white sketch but it couldn’t rely on the mechanical pencil to get that real intense fire I want. If I was going that far, I needed my pencil kit so I could really push all my blacks and get the highest contrast possible. I didn’t have them, so I had to work on this after I got home from work.
