Ink School 2

Still practicing and experimenting with some stuff I learned from the dudes at work. Here are some sketches I worked on today and yesterday. I wrote down what I think was going wrong at certain points to help myself remember what not to do. A brand new love affair with ink has begun!

TODAY
I've been starting with a rough pencil sketch. Helps me know where I'm goin'. 
Wanted to try experimenting with some hair texture today...
Notes to myself!
I hear white paint is great for covering up boneheaded mistakes! haha

Ink School

A very badass belated birthday gift was bestowed upon me this evening. A brand new ink brush, and a lesson in inking from theeeeeeee Ken Mitchroney & John Sanford! You guys!! YA! Thank you.
Here are the sketches that resulted from lesson #1.
All the side notes are things Ken instructed me with while we all drew together. WOW.
I started with pencil sketches, and then........INKED. yeeeeHawwwww.
Can't wait to get back to some more practice. Had a LOT of fun with this.
(using a brand new Windsor Newton ~ Series 7 #2 brush) Thanks, John!!

Moving forward, I'd like to work on getting better weight in my line and nicer volume in my drawings overall. Practice practice practice!

Day of the Wolf Men

A sketch book page full of wolf men heads struck the mood between animation reviews today.
