A few sketches done this week

 Just for fun I got myself a regular drawing book usually used in schools.
It cost around Rs. 20/- that's 30 cents! Surprisingly it turned out great
for daily Sketches and studies! The size is great for carrying around
and the pages have a nice not so obvious texture that works great with pencil! 

Need to try Copic markers on this!

Some character designs

SHRI
A few character designs and sketches done last week.
I feel that I am getting to know the digital brushes a bit better now. Hopefully soon I can achieve the same rendering style effect like the original gauche and watercolors. Need to practice and explore these brushes more!
Hope you guys like these designs! :)

New Illustrations

A few Illustrations I did in between work. Usually when I sketch for fun, I don't plan the whole illustration but start with just one sketch and then build the rest of the characters and environment around it. 
I don't know if its the better way but what I have realized is that once I see some subject on the paper I can visualize more things faster and better. Hence even when I am drawing my character I start with the face first. Once I see the personality I can draw the suitable body and gesture around it. Not a hard n fast rule but most of the time it works! :)

Tip of the day!

Tip of the day:

One of the most commonly asked question by students is that they love character design but don't know how to begin. Well, the only advice is... Just start! Once you start doing it. You will come across problems. And those problems will tell you what solutions to look for. Simple!

P.S. Just Don't do copy sketching, but attempt to create designs based on live reference or photos. Give yourself a character design brief and then try to find the design solution to it.

Daily practice

A few Daily Practice character sketches.

A quick illustration

SHRI
A small illustration based on an Idea. I wanted to do a quick sketch but I spent a little more time and having fun drawing the foliage behind! :D Hope you guys enjoy it. :)
Did one more with similar process. Started with a single character design sketch and then built the BG around it.

A few warm up sketches


Character designs based on online references

SHRI
A few quick character designs done based on a couple of interesting photos of Indian Middle aged men I saw online. Most Indian men will be engaged in a similar pose most mornings. Either wondering about political updates or trying to solve the crossword puzzles. :) The guys on the top right corner is wearing a Indian style Monkey cap quite often worn by older people.
