Inktober installment 2.

Hi-ho, heres my inktober installment 2 days 6-11. I like these challenges, it sort of takes out the indecision of what you will draw. It takes away some time from my painting though. I think I will be able to show my latest painting at the end of this week, going in for the kill.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bill

The Inktober challenge is here.

Hey people, as some of you might know every October hundreds if not thousands of artist do the Inktober challenge. Every day (there is a different theme everyday) one should draw in ink and post it. Its mainly about practicing and getting better using ink, but mostly its about having fun with the medium. Heres my contribution days 1-5.

See you around,

Bill

Sketchbook post.

What would life be like without my sketchbook, probably a lot more boring.

Figure studies

Hey people, starting another painting. Here’s the charcoal and chalk underdrawing. I do these to improve my skills and try out different techniques. I noticed a big improvement in my paintings and drawing. I still work on fantasy and science fiction paintings, I’m currently working on my first night scene.

Thanks for stopping by,

Pencil drawing: Odin seeks Mimir’s advice.

Hey everyone, here is my rendition of Odin talking to Mimir, you know the head that he kept around to ask for advice once in a while. Because that’s what Norse gods do.

I’ll be painting over this in Artrage. I find I lose a little of the dynamic when I transfer a drawing and then paint over it. I’ll still be painting with oils though.

Thanks for stopping by,

Tablet Sketching.

I bought a tablet last week with the expressed wish to sketch with it. I downloaded a couple of sketch apps and started going to town. I settled on the preinstalled Artrage app, I had already used it on my PC so I was sort of used to it. Now when I’m sitting around I grab the tablet and sketch something.

Thanks for looking in,

Bill

Odin study

Odin study-web

 

I’ve been wanting to paint Odin for a while now. I really like to read mythology not only norse but also greek and Roman. I wanted a cool Odin though not just the skinny traveler with the raven and floppy hat (I drew that also) but an Odin that you could tell he would screw your shit up in second if he wanted to. I think I’ll keep this version of him, I just have to figure out the rest now.

Thanks for stopping in,

Sketching while riding the train.

My car was in the workshop for a few days so I had to fall back on public transportation. Lucky for me Germany has a super public transportation network. In fact you could easily get from almost any place to any other place in Germany using PT if you have enough time. I used the time to do some sketching while I was in route to my day job. These sketches had to go fast, because I only had up to 5 minutes or less to finish these before they moved or noticed me. One thing was, I felt a little creepy doing this, some people don’t want this and you get stares and not to friendly glances or maybe I imagined this, I’m not sure. So I tried to sketch people that were to busy or didn’t notice me. I finally resorted to doing a few thumb nail sketches for ideas.

Thanks for stopping, stay cool,

Bill

T-Shirt design, Skull cross

I’m not dead. I haven’t posted for a while, beause things are a little chaotic in my life right now and I have to take care of a few things before I can concentrate on Art again. I was able to do a few T-Shirt designs and post them to Redbubble. I am working on a larger painting, but progress is slow and I want to do it justice and not just get it over with. In the mean time I will be drawing more with pencil and ink, because I need to get things out of my brain on to paper and it doesn’t matter how.

Thanks for checking in,

Bill

Hunger

I wanted to change my working Medium and since I did the inktober challenge I decided to splash a little ink on the page. Believe it or not I’m still searching for something to paint. I guess I just have to commit to something and see it through.

Thanks for stopping in,
