Got a little more time tonight to sketch so I went for a page of forward faces. Maybe tomorrow I’ll draw profile shots.

Continuing in the Marvel book, here are some cars. I like to sketch out with a 6H so they are pretty darn light but then I feel a little more free to just let lines go rather than be all meticulous. I want to get in the habit of drawing lots of rough sketches, scanning and inking over using my pen tablet. But I need my scanner, which is in Seattle. Soon.
Also, since Rob Guillory is freaking awesome and I’m totally obsessed with this comic “Chew”, which he illustrates to John Layman’s killer scripts, I figured I’d do a little learning from the master and sketch out a Tony Chu (I learn best through imitation). I love the way Rob angles features. It’s a really fun yet intense style.
And examples of Rob Guillory’s sketches of Chew: http://bit.ly/aHz8EzMakes

Among many other books on comic book making, I’ve got a copy of How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, which I’m going to start using for some practice.
I’m no gun aficionado so pardon the lack of finesse, but here’s my sketches for today as guided from that book.
Looks like I need to buy a ruler and practice this a few dozen more times ;)
Having trouble getting these as detailed as I’d like. I’m trying to go through this part of a drawing tutorial during my lunch breaks and this particular part requires a lot of time drawing little tiny circular scribbles.
It’s an interesting technique that at first I sort of scoffed at. It’s rather time consuming but the texture is much nicer than just rubbing a 6B pencil to get a shade. At least, if you spend the time to make the circles fine enough.
