I was watching on of Bjorn Hurris 30 minute warm ups on Twitch and he showed a trick he uses to draw tubing easily using the stroke effects layer. I was playing around with it and then started overlaying the effect and thought it looks a lot like etching. I made this little guy using it.
The image below is a study from a photo just to get some practice a subtler transitions in colour /value to indicate form.

|Work in progress After Peder Monsted|
Didn't manage to close this out this week. Still a bit to go and I am really behind because this is Spring. Most of the work on this lies in the detailing which is yet to come. Spurring me on to go and do some plein air. Weather has been good of late so there may be opportunities.

Some sketch book pages. This book I fill up during lunchtime using a biro. I am making my way through Hogarths dynamic anatomy and these doodles are interspersed. Lots of guys - mostly big and ugly - probably because all the anatomy is male. I have some other sketches which I will upload later.

Doing some more serious studies alongside. This is a study I did while Grigoriy Peppo on twitch streamed a study. Sorry I did not write down who the original artist is but the original is exquisite. While doing it I thought it could have been done yesterday - has a timeless feeling.

This week some sketches. Bank holiday here and a day off. Caught Johnderekmurphy on Twitch today doing some practice work and followed along. The first three are from that session.I got some ink so I have been doing a bit of traditional sketch work. I have a another book where I am sketching and studying anatomy for a while now. I find it easier to do those studies in ink.

|Landscape studies 13|
Went back to landscapes. These were all from photos I took. The plan was to try a few different approaches to get the structures down with the least amount of fussy brush strokes and pay attention to edges. The aim is to get better at planning things out and moving on to more imaginative stuff. I am also hoping to do some gouache and oil studies and imagination work.

I had planned to post another image but have not finished it as much as I would like so some more sketchbook stuff. The first image is a copy from a movie poster for Valley of Gwangi by Frank McCarthy. On the reverse of it I did another dinosaur using a different approach. Didn't mange to hold onto the balanced proportions of the first.
