Got a little bored last night after hunting down some issues to finalize my California colleges contract and decided to take some pics of my drawings and post them so the world can suffer. Some of them suck, but whatever, I put them up anyway.

Click the images below to pop a super large version in a new window.

June 8th 2004 - Stupid Mannequin.
I used my big fat Ebony Lead Sketch Pencil for this one to try it out. This was the first drawing in my new sketchbook. I'm not thrilled with it, but it was done relatively quickly (i.e. 30 minutes or so).
June 9th 2004 - Little Girl.
Drawn from a picture reference using 2H, HB, 2B combo for the first time. I use to just pick up a number 2 pencil and use notebook paper, so this was a big difference. I'm relatively pleased with it, but the proportions are all jacked and the likeness is sorta there, but not really. Not sure on the time, probably 3+ hours.
June 12th 2004 - Asian Girl in Boots.
From picture reference. Used the Ebony lead on this one again. Just wanted to try it out again. It's really fucking dark and fat heheh. Hard to get real detail in there, especially the face in this one. Relatively quick, probably 1.5-2 hours.
June 12th 2004 - Asian "School Girl".
(She actually looked more college age). From picture reference. Second picture of the day. Ebony lead fat pencil again. I like this picture. There's a few things wrong with it, but it came out pretty decent I think, although I'm sure the likeness sucks. I can't recall the time on this one. probably 3 hours.
June 14th 2004 - Asian Woman in Lingerie.
From picture reference. Ebony lead, cuz I'm a glutton for punishment. This one I sorta like, the face is all screwed now that I've looked back on it, but that's cuz that damn Ebony pencil is so fat. I like the body though, I think it came out pretty good. I don't know why I didn't break out the 2B or something for the face if I wanted to go dark and fast but not so fat, but I didn't. Not sure on the time for this one, I'm guessing 2-3 hours.
June 14th 2004 - Asian Woman Sitting.
From picture reference (I bet you notice a trend by now). 2H HB 2B Pencil. I finally got fed up with the clunky Ebony pencil. Oh the horror of this picture though. This was the second picture of the day and by the time I got through with it I was really burnt out on drawing and hating the woman in the reference pic. I hurriedly finished towards the end and her legs suffered because of it. I can't seem to put a drawing down and come back to it later, I'm not sure why. I try to finish the drawing in one sitting. Probably spent 3 hours on this.
June 16th 2004 - Woman Gazing.
From Picture reference. 2H HB 2B Pencil. I know I did a big write up on this one about 3 entries ago, but I wanted to put it in here to show where it fits relative to my other drawings in the timeline. Besides, if I switch web designs or back end code for one entry per page or whatever in the future at least it'll show the image rather than a reference to some other entry. Time spent was about 4-5 hours or maybe even a little more.
June 17th 2004 - Red Baron Plane.
From a picture reference of a model of the plane (not the best source). 2H 2B pencil. I decided to draw something flat and inanimate instead of all the humans. I quickly got annoyed with it since I had to use a semi straight piece of paper to draw some guidelines and do geometry for angles in my head (I HATE geometry and angles). I don't think it came out too bad, but it was pretty damn annoying, but a challenge. probably 1.5 - 2 hours.
June 27th 2004 - A Flippin' Foot.
Drawn from life. 2H 2B pencil. This is for all you foot fetish people out there. My wife was sleeping and I like her little tiny cute feet, so I decided to try and draw it real quick before she rolled over. I'm pleased with it. I had to move pretty quick so this was done in about 30-45 minutes and very quietly.
