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,

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,

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.

Sketchbook Samurai.

I’ve been watching Samurai films on U-Tube and then sketching the figures, this is very relaxing for me. I’ve got some intersting figures out of these maybe something to paint or explore later.

Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome.

My last inks for a while, I wanted Inktober to go out in a bang so I did a little tribute to Mad Max Fury Road. I also made this into a T-Shirt over at Redbubble. I’ve been squaring away my finanaces and other stuff that life throws at you so there has been little time to paint or draw. I still have a painting for a friend on my easel that quietly rebukes me every time I walk past it. I should be getting back into the saddle by next weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and remember: Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome,

Inktober 25-27.

These are fun to do, but I’m ready to get back to painting. I’ve learned a bit out of this challenge and I full-filled my new years resolution to fill a sketchbook.

Inktober 17-20

Inktober17-20

One of the positive affects of inktober is that my sketching skills have improved. I am falling behind though, but I’ll do all 31 days.

Inktober 7-12 with 8 missing.

I spent the last week in Berlin, walking around and taking in the wonderful buildings and Museums, so I’m trying to play catch-up with the inktober themes. These are getting easier and I see an improvment, I’m not crosshatching wildly now over the whole drawing.

Thanks for stopping by,
