Environment Thumbnails

Here are some environment thumbnails from my sketchbook. They're all from photographs and took roughly 45 minutes each. These are fun to me because they remind me of a caricature, in the sense that you're playing with shapes and their relationship to each other in order to make a picture. Also, I'm not huge on rendering (all though I do appreciate it) and since these are thumbnails, you can crank them out fast like a theme park caricature.

more graphic studies

A couple more drawings from DVD covers. I try to take the subject matter and then do my own thing with it. Like in the bottom image, I used the Batman symbol to as part of the composition. These are nice ways to limber up to a bigger drawing and be creative at the same time.

Sin City Character Design

The other day I was looking through my roommates' dvd collection for something to draw. Anything related to comic books interests me so I saw this one (Sin City) and did some studies from the back of the dvd cover. I love the play of lighting in this movie with the black and white contrast. These were fun to draw and play with the positive and negative spaces.
