I'm here.
I'm here at Proko so I can eventually focus on 'what' to draw and not on 'how' to draw.

#240523 Messing around / study drawings. Odd Ends sketchbook. HB Koh-I-Noor lead holder. Some anatomical references and a wandering mind. Hope you don't mind me joining in, but this sketchbook thread looked like fun.

Mechs Crossing The Desert. Actually, the mechs never showed up. Not yet. I was trying to design them and word on the street was that designing mechs with silhouettes was the thing to do. Has anybody else heard of this rumor? Signed, Searching For Mechs

This definitely started as an observational study. Honest!

Baby steps… I'm not up to full-on covers yet, but I did take a big old marker and try and sketch like Frank Miller. Please file this under, "Finished, Not Perfect."

Another sketch from last Saturday. While I'm adding watercolor to the rest of the covers I did, I think this one works best in black and white.

Another recently completed sketch cover. I view these as preliminary sketches. The idea is to get a bunch of them done and develop the best ones. I never know in advance which drawings are going to be my best compositions. By doing a lot, some of them will stand out and it's those that I'll choose do develop. This is one of the prongs in my development. I'm also focusing a lot on studying the figure, drawing from live, and doing master studies to understand gouache and watercolor. Sometime in the fall I want to start putting this all together into original compositions. All this is to say that there is a method to the madness.

I'm a huge Batman fan! And I'm a huge Aparo fan (my favorite Batman and Aquaman artist)! And I have the Death in the Family comic! Great job!

I grew up reading TMNT comics, and listening to the Grateful Dead. (Things haven’t changed much) When I first was introduced to Heinrich Kley I was blown away to realize my first experience with Kley was actually on the Grateful Dead album cover for Terrapin Station. I had no idea at the time who Kley was, and I always attributed the dancing turtles to Stanley Mouse who designed many of my favorite album covers for The Dead. Thought it would be fun to mash-up a bunch of my favorite things for a comic sketch cover, Kley, TMNT, and The Dead! So here’s Mikey and Donnie (rocking out to Terrapin Station) after Kley. Sketched/inked in Procreate. Can't wait to do some more of these, such a fun project prompt!

Nice story about the Dead cover art. I'm familiar with Kley, but I've never seen the turtle art. Thanks for posting.

I'm mystified. Really solid work without looking 'blocky' or like a perspective study. The shadows really give weight.

The multiple studies of the legs and the little boy is a great idea. I'm guessing the gal in the center of the page is after Loomis. You've really captured his subtle tonal shifts. The slim and big fellas from behind says so much with so little. I've never seen shadows handled like that. And the guy with the hammer makes me smile. Thanks for posting.

I should probably simplify even more into geometric shapes on these...

These are great! I'd have a hard time picking a favorite. The shapes are dynamic on their own while still contributing to the overall gesture. At this point, each drawing can either help with a realistic pose… or be a great jumping off point for manga/mech design of robots!

The first day I found myself going down the rabbit hole of 'measuring.' The next day I realized I had no idea where the eye line was — or the vanishing points. The third day I just couldn't face it. The fourth day I forgot which sketchbook it was in. Today I figured I'd just better finish it! Thanks for your patience.
