Out for lunch

..kind of. I am moving around a little, and have not updated this blog for a while,- for that I am sorry! I will try to get back on track again, but I have a feeling the coming sketches will be done in a slightly shorter time frame than a lot of the ones up until now have been.

If I am slightly stubborn,- it's genetic! About 1.5 hours. Ref for horns, face done from memory.

I have tried my hand at caricatures again today. If one of you can tell who it is (he's not as famous all over the globe.. though he should be!), then I deem it a success! I spent way too long on it, and obv. used some ref.

Day 254

A sketch for the monkey. No ref.

Day 253

Inspired by the tutorial yesterday, I figured I'd do one more, but this time do the opposite with regards to scale, and add shadows, not just highlights. I had a lot of fun with this! Hope you like. It took me about 2 hours. I used all my own brushes this time round.

Day 252

I decided to try another style this time. Inspired by this tutorial, I came up with this. I took me a few hours to do.

Thanks to for the border brushes, and hair ornament.
