Coloring images

We were learning about digital coloring in class and had to choose one of our own images on which to practice, so I chose an old sketch I'd done of Dave Tough the drummer, so here's the color version without a black outline, an the color version with the black outline.

One more…

One more...

sketch of Shelly Manne – if you don’t know him, there’s this song called “Flip” that’s on youtube, might be fun to look up if you’d like to.
I’ll start posting more soldiers soon, just got caught up in another huge drawing project for a friend, but it went really well and we pretty much wrapped it up so I can continue work on this project again

art project: final drumhead

last one in the art project I've been working on, will go in between the other two (with the first one in b/w on its right and the color one on its left) to tie them together. all three show images from different decades of a particular drummer, thought that would be interesting. also, you'll have to pardon the bottom right one on this one, it's done in colored pencil and reflects funny when photographed. and while the other two were done in one style each, this guy's known for doing all sorts of styles of drumming (studio guy) so each decade has a different drawing style.

Art Project: Drumhead 1

This is a little different from what I usually post, and I have been working on character sketches for my book so I will be posting those soon, but I had an opportunity to come up with an art project for myself this year, kind of a homework assignment, to see if I could do it. So I'm doing three drumheads, drawing on them, each one of a different drummer, showing images from several decades of the same drummer. Thought this would be interesting. Plus, each drumhead's in a different style. Within a month, I got two done, and I'm working on the third one. So here's the first.




I'm an artist writing and drawing a graphic novel that takes place during the Second World War. On this blog I will display the sketches I do in researching and preparing for the book.
