As I said in my first sketch post I’ve decided to keep a regular sketchbook, for all those ideas that aren’t fully fledged painting concepts, or just drawing for fun without planning or pressure.
Before I found an actual sketch book to use for this purpose I used one of Henrik’s notebooks, and these are the sketches I drew in it before I found the perfect sketchbook on our New York trip.
I’m having a big She-Ra period at the moment and most things I’ve drawn and painted for the past couple of months have been very She-Ra inspired. Obviously this sketch is no exception.
I tinted these sketches slightly in Photoshop for fun, they’re really just regular graphite pencil.
Another She-Ra inspired sketch.
This is kind of boring and the parrot looks terrible, but I like his ship tattoo.
I kept coming across pulp magazine covers illustrating a story called The Snake Mother. This was inspired by those.
This was when I was dreaming about our new York trip. I imagined it would be something like this. I was pretty right minus the snowfall and major shopping.
This was inspired by equal parts Madam Satan and Elsa Schiaparelli.
