Daily Sketch Journal #3 - Diseased Skull

Drawing a diseased skull here and I did a short youtube video of me drawing it too. How To Draw A Diseased Skull 

I drew this as another skull variation on the horror skull theme with worms and suggestions of maggots falling out of the diseased looking skull with also some lumpy looking skull portions. Could have done with some flies hanging around the top of the skull, but we can't have everything can we?

Daily Sketch Journal #2 - Horror Skull

I got really carried away with this one, whilst this still remains unfinished as I need to draw in more webs surround the skull and weird Wyrm creature. I used a combination of Pigma Microns and a thicker 0.8 Uni-Pin ink pen and a White gelly roll ink pen for the white out highlights. I also wanted to not really draw in that much solid black areas with thick black markers and so instead I tried to utilize the cross hatching method and some choice scribbles for some kind of illustrative effect.

How To Draw A Goblin Step By Step

How to draw a Goblin step by step drawing tutorial demonstration. Goblins are very popular in lots of imaginary fantasy worlds that lots of other Artists have created. This tutorial aims to show a small glimpse of a Goblin as a cheeky imp, sort of mischievous.

Here are the basic steps to drawing one possible version of a Goblin. I've tried to spread out the steps and make it easy enough to follow along. (I most certainly will be doing another Goblin drawing tutorial in the future!)

Click each image to see the larger picture.

Draw a small potato shape for the head of your Goblin

Next, add some ears and eyes

Try and sketch in lightly a good devilish grin on the face

Start to work on the arms and torso of your Goblin

Still sketching lightly for the legs and arms, loosely sketch the hands too

Adding from to the torso and making the shoulders appear clothed with short shirt sleeves

Defining the leg shapes and now lightly sketching in the feet which look like they are in bandages

With the basics of the figure captured we can darken the pencil lines on our Goblin

Your Goblin is beginning to take shape

Solidly darkening the feet now

All the pencil drawing stage is complete, take a step back and look at your Goblin

I'm using a Uni-pin 0.1 to ink the lines as this gives a clean crisp ink line

Start to ink the folds in the Goblins shirt

You'll see that the inking really helps define your drawing even further

Don't forget the feet

Ink the hands last as I always feel like I need to decide if the Goblin is going to hold something,but alas no.

Forgot to ink that cheeky evil grin, I gave the Goblin small sharp teeth

My Daily Sketch Journal #1

I thought about doing a daily Sketch journal showing some new artworks for this year and really just to get back in the habit of drawing new stuff again after a lackluster end of the year 2014 and dire start to the new year 2015 with any creative output on both occasions. Sometimes it's just cool to try and challenge yourself, because you're the only one that can do it.

Here is my first sketch of the day which is actually an ink sketch, it's a near finished concept ink drawing, but it's a piece of art nonetheless. I guess some days will be harder than others to try and draw or create something and I suppose I'll just have to push through them hard days. So today is the 8th of January 2015, lets see if I can keep this up for as long as possible. Some art will be spontaneous like this one, but others might be more well thought out and planned in any given day, so who knows.

Back to the piece of art, it features three skulls and I definitely want the blackness of the subject to be the central theme of this quick concept drawing. Certainly this quick art will give me the idea to try and do a more detailed version of this idea.
