So this is a quick update with some sketch action I’ve been working on.  The top image is from figure drawing, the middle one is an oil sketch/study for an illustration I’m finally starting tomorrow, and the last one is a crop of a sketch I’m doing for a comic cover.

I’ve definitely been digging the pencil lately. I haven’t used graphite this much in years..haha. It’s amazing how much painting can help your drawing.

take care,
