So I saw Finding Dory recently, and I have really been considering drawing Hank the Septopus since seeing it. After having a migraine for most the day to the point I couldn’t use my Cintiq, I did this evening😉
I’m still very happy with OnAirVideo’s Croquis Cafe resource, and after a week of anger and misery, I decided to go back to drawing nudes.
So yeah, there is a simple reason I stopped doing the coffee shop life drawing…the same people go. Yeah, it’s silly to say, but the times I go are very the same-ish. Even if it isn’t the same people, it’s the same type of people and poses. I also think people got used to “the creep drawing them from the corner” and became more nosy towards people drawing. New coffee shops come, and they are worse laid out so it’s pain stakingly obvious that you are drawing that guy across from you as you make awkward eye contact.
But tonight I tried a resource I was keeping to the side in case of this problem, let’s talk OnAirVideo’s Croquis Cafe!
I often end up drawing when I’m stuck outside, away from home with little else to do because of time commitments…so today, here’s my two most recent additions to this category of boredom drawings!
What can 2-3 weeks of work create? Well, apparently a fairly complex little portal!
What’s the story? Well, read on and I’ll tell you!
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to re-establish my drawing patterns to keep it up to scratch. I don’t have loads like some times, but I have a couple to show off. One coffee shop creep drawing session and 2 sat like a dork sessions ho!
For a while now, I have been creating a fan comic for my favourite character from Transformers: Prime…Knock Out.
Today, I have given it a proper cover, to which I put a lot of effort into, so much so it is quite a complex little illustration as far as pose and visual effect goes.
