Figure Sketches


Here are my latest figure sketches.  All are with red color pencil in a moleskine sketch boo.

Hungary Sketch


This is a pencil sketch I did of a composite scene in Hungary.  The church, fountain, and buildings are all in different places, put them together.  I like the contrast in the shadow in the three planes of the painting.

Figures Galore!



The red color pencil is so nice to work with!

Pastel on Black Paper


This is a demonstration drawing from my figure drawing class.  It is pasel on black paper.  i need to use better paper, this is very slick and too shiny.  The model is Sarah Shumway.  I love how the pastel is so bright and vibrant on black paper!

Mechanical Drawings


These are ink mechanical drawings of space ships and submarines from TV shows from the 1960s.  I am using them for a digital coloring book project.  These are so fun to do!  I am a boy of the 1960s so these ships have a special place in may heart!  The above is the Jupiter 2 from Lost in Space.


Seaview from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

 Sky-Diver from the TV show UFO.  Is there anything better than a submarine that shoots a jet off the front. 

The Chariot from Lost in Space.

Several views of the Jupiter 2.
