Urban Sketching: Drawing cosplayers and interesting folk at Oz Comincon 2016














Hi!  This all happened yesterday Saturday June 11 2016.  It was an awesome day, full of drawing, food and good company.  I was the organizer for the Melbourne Urban Sketchers for this event and I am happy to say that everyone present seemed to enjoy their time, a lot.  So, yay!

I thought,t hat given the interesting folk at the con, that it would be better to draw the people. The building will always be there but not the people, so thought to draw the folks this time.  It was fun and challenging because people kept moving.  It did get easier the more I did it but I kept going but I didn't get one realistic face all day, I went straight back to my default drawing style, since I had to draw so quickly!  Good practice though.  Perhaps I should do more?

Here are some pics from the con!  By Erik Sentell and myself.

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!
