  • Disney Sketch Color Studies Ahoy!

    These are some of my first attempts at adding color to my sketches using Prismacolor colored pencils. Thus far (as you can tell) it’s a struggle. I don’t like the look of the paper showing through, but have yet to figure a blending mode to my liking. I’m also working on color theory and used somewhat random palettes on these, ignoring what they look like in real life. The plan is to do multiple color tests for each to see [...]

  • Disney Sketch Crawl #9 – Glad I’m not here on vacation

    Today the lines to get into the parking lot heralded a day full of overcrowding and annoyance. Days like these foster impatience and meanness in people, as demonstrated by the awful woman who nearly took my feet off with her Hummer–I mean, stroller–and then gave me a nasty look like it was my fault.

  • Disney Sketch Crawl #6 – Value studies are scary

I did some of both, with so-so results. In some part, I blame the fact that it took me two hours (instead of the usual 45 min) to get to Disneyland thanks to some fool who caused an accident on the freeway. By the time [...]

  • Disney Sketch Crawl #5 – Halloween Hell

    I had no idea going in that I’d be dealing with teeming hordes of park goers. Middle of the week, middle of October – how bad could it be? The worst.
