Some studies of True Grit I did for the CGMA storyboarding course I'm currently doing. The course is awesome and I hope to post some more work from it here soon!
(these studies were done digital)

Another Next 5 inspired by a pic chosen by Lissa Treiman. The original picture can be found here. I always start these things on paper, doing a quick thumbnail to see how I'm gonna approach it. You can see the sketch for this one below.

Another Next 5 I did. This one was based on this photo from this blogpost by Lissa Treiman. Check-out her site, if you don't know her work yet, she rocks!
These exercises are a great way to practice new tricks and techniques. I do think that maybe I'm still being a bit too careful with my ideas. They tend to be a bit conservative. Next time I'd really like to do something a bit more out there.
My previous Next 5 exercises can be found here and here.

Im not sure why. During the first week I hardly drew anything at all, only after we got to Lisbon did I begin to do some sketches. I still had a great time and took a lot of photos. These are all the sketches I did.So only one post this year. Hope you had a great summer too, I promise to do more sketching on my next trip!

The other day I was watching a documentary about some Dutch architect who kept stacks of sketchs neatly organized in folders. I decided to do the same. More than 700 filed sketches later (!) I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel. The only stack that stil remains is made up of sketches on folded up paper. I usually work on regular A4 print paper. But every now and then I'll fold the paper in half. These sketches are too small to fit in to the folders, but, because they're small, for now they can lay on the corner of my drawingboard.
I figured you might like to take a look at these so I've scanned these on for your viewing pleasure. As you can see some are real messy while others are actully quite organized. It's funny to look at back at these things, They were not made to be seen by others but there's a spontaneity to 'em I sort of like.
