More moleskine sketches

As the heading says I have some more sketches from my moleskine for you. I've been practising body forms lately as I haven't drawn people in my cartoon style for a long time. I have mainly focused of parts of the body I find the most tricky, hands, feet etc.
Some of these I might work into a finished illustration.

Oh nose! ;)

I hate feet, I don't even like mine. So drawing this was hard for me ;)

Shake those hands!

Hope you're all enjoying this sketchbook posts!

Sketch dump

Hello, Although I haven't been doing any big art lately I have been trying to use my Moleskine sketchbook more often. I've been practising with my new Rotring art pen on one of the bone sketches but sadly the paper doesn't seem to like the ink. It has a slight shiny texture that makes it so easy smudge but on normal paper I am sure it would be fine. Anyway on to the sketches!

Sketches of the Grants museum of zoology, working from photos I took.

More Grant museum sketches but this time using the Rotring art pen instead of my Staedtler pigment liner.

Trap door! I like to do fan art when I can't think what else to draw, I find it relaxing.

Garfield sketch
Garfield. This was done in the middle of the night, I think my subconscious was trying to tell me something hehe!

Looney Tunes Sketch
Looney tunes. I did this one as a request from my niece. I used to draw them so much as a child.

Ok not a sketch but I thought I would leave you with the Valentines day card I made Pete.

Hope you enjoyed the sketches!

Grant museum of zoology


Hello, it was my birthday on Sunday! Pete booked off the Monday from work and we went to the Grant museum of Zoology for a day out. I thought I would share some of the photos I took with you all. Sorry about the quality, my camera doesn't seem to like glass.

It is only a small museum but as you can see it is filled to the brim with a wonderful collection. I would love to go back and spend time drawing there, I am planning on doing some sketches from the photos I took.
I will leave you with my birthday present haul off Pete, book goodness!

Hourly Comic Day

Hello all, yesterday was hourly comic day. I haven't joined in it for a couple of years so I thought it was about time I did.
These are drawn so roughly because otherwise it would of taken me an hour just to complete each panel.I ended up using my pentel brush pen and I find it very tricky for small work (A5 sketchbook) but it's quick!
I cheated a little bit by completing the last panels today but I think it still counts right? ;)

Enjoy! Oh and if you did your own hourly comics yesterday please leave me a link to them so I can see them!
