Drawing-A-Day Challenge! Starts Today! Be There!

I only did this one other time, but now it's time to do it again.

I like drawing. I like to draw. I've been drawing for a long time. HOWEVER, since I began showing up online posting stuff years ago, things have not been great. I'm not talking about those things this time.

A lot of great people and artists have given me advice, and so far I've barely followed it. I'm pretty disappointed in that.

So starting later today, I'm going to do what others have done: a Drawing-A-Day challenge. I will post at least one new drawing here every day. It could be anything: Something sketchy, something colored, maybe the occasional digital thing (but something like that might take a while to complete).

I really want to try to get better at drawing after 15+ years of... well, I guess you could call what I have been doing "drawing".

Wish me luck!

Old Stuff - Devil Quinn

Sept. 2005

I really want to remake this one, even if I end up doing just sketches.

That's the reason why I've been posting up a lot of my old, crappy drawings lately. I want to try to draw a new version of them, with new different poses, attempts at new angles, and hopefully improved anatomy. Some of the stuff I put up recently is a step in the right direction :)

That said, this is an old near-fetishy drawing of Quinn... something I do fairly often.

Sketches - 6-7-10

Sketches from yesterday. Most of them, namely the guys on the left and bottom center, and the gal on the right, were from various magazines I had around. The table-like thing, I came up on my own. And there's other stuff in here, too.

Sketches - 6-3-10

I got the reference for these from various... um, internet sources. I tried to draw them exactly how they looked in the photo or photos. The hand on the one on bottom left looks damn wonky, but that's how she looked in the picture I got it from.
