R.I.P. Whitney Houston

I did a sketch of Whitney Houston after hearing of her passing. This is about an hour in Sketchbook Pro.

Kristin Stewart Sketch

One thing I need to do all the time in order to keep up the artistic muscles is sketch. Either pencil on paper, or in this case, all done on my Mac in Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop. If I don't sketch constantly I grow rusty really fast and it makes it that much harder to get going when I have a client with a job. I keep a folder full of celebrity photos on my computer for whenever I have some down time between projects where I'll grab some reference pretty much at random and practice. This time it was "Twilight" actress Kristin Stewart (or "K-Stew" as the tabloids seem to be referring to her). She's got a great face for caricature because of her really prominent forehead and chin, which is what I chose to exaggerate here. This is after about two hours of work. I'm at that stage where I could turn it into a finished piece with a couple more hours of polishing and smoothing, but I think I'm going to leave it where it's at. It was just practice, after all, and I really like the roughness of it.

Sketchbook Dump

I finished up a new sketchbook. Here are a few of the better things in it.

John Locke Sketch

Ballpoint pen sketch of John Locke from my favorite TV show Lost. I might develop this into a painting.

Jim Morrison

This painting kind of grew organically over time. I started it because I got a copy of Sketchbook Pro to mess around with (I absolutely love the program, BTW). Then as things moved along, I took this back into Photoshop for some finishes, then, liking what I'd done so far, I decided to add a few retro psychedelic flourishes I created in Adobe Illustrator.
