Struggled in the quick drawings of the session but got a few good ones by the end. These are all 20 min. poses at Crealdé School of Art. Bruynzeel black color pencil on Aquabee Super Deluxe 808 Sketch Book 9"x12".

Warning: if you're offended by artistic nudity, I'd  suggest you not go further and please check out my other work here in the non-figure drawing posts (or clothed ones) and at the Dos Illustros sketchblog instead. If you're not offended then please read on...

Portraits and a bird!

A couple of birthday portraits last year, in the same vein as the previous Edge one. All in Canson BFK Rives cream paper about 5"x7".

Portraits were done with a Pentel Tradio and Pocket Brush pens. I also used the regular Pentel Brush Pen for drybrush textures.

This blue-gray gnatcatcher was painted with Dr. Martin dyes and a touch of white gouache:


Armed Forces Military Museum

Back in January last month, I visited the Armed Forces Military Museum in Largo, FL (just north of St. Petersburg on the West Coast) with my friends Jason Pichon, his brother Josh McLaughlin, and Elaine Cruz for a day of researching military equipment through history and drawing.

I got only a couple drawings but took lots of photos for reference. Hopefully I'll look at the photos and make more drawings later on. These were done with the Pentel Tradio and Pocket Brush pens on Moleskine.


I felt like I was a kid again drawing my G.I. Joes! I highly recommend this place if you have to research any type of historical military equipment!
