Illustration Friday: Legendary

The bull's fear of the mouse was so legendary that the rest of the herd laughed.

After illusions of epic grandeur with a victorious female knight standing with her helm under one arm and a waving banner grasped in the other hand, this is the resulting sketch. I need to find a balance between anatomically correct people and the looseness and character that this sketch has so I can start replacing animal figures with human figures and draw all the fantastical images that are in my head.

I am loving this sketch and want to create a finished piece with this at some point.

UPDATE: I gave myself four hours to color the cow and had a lot of fun with it. Enjoy!

Daily Sketch 28

Some sketches from lunch. Not my best, but I have a few women in there. The waiter ended up looking Asian, which he was not. I think it is because of the nose.

Daily Sketch 26

This is post 101! yay! It only took me four years... The good news is that about 30-40 of those posts have been since the start of '09. That means I'm doing a lot more sketching then I ever have before. The guy with the semi-mohawk (It really looked more like a cross between a Grease hairdo and a mohawk) I actually drew Sunday, but then refined the profile today. It was much flatter originally, and he had very strong features.

I'm really liking the combination of 1-minute and 15 minute drawings throughout the sketch book, particularly when they overlap more than the ones on this page.

I also think i'm going to try to start drawing every waiter/waitress we have. The guy below Mohawk was the second one that came out really good. I need to have more female faces drawn like this.
