Ink practice

Vessels ink
Fencer ink
Interior Study 10

Some ink studies. I have been using a book - Rendering in Pen and Ink by Arthur Guptill.  There is some instruction but I got it mostly for the  collection of different artists and their styles.  I use a regular ballpoint for sketching but have tried to use a dip pen for some.  All are works from photos.

Interior Study 10

portrait study 31 b

Changed things up a bit and designed these animal characters.  Hoping to practice a different style and trying to stretch a few design muscles.  
The interior is a study from photo reference.  I Liked it because it was a little bit moody and had a few interesting textures and edges.  
The last batch are all practice from photo reference.

 This one looked to have potential back in the sketch phase so I spent some time working on it in greyscale then added colour.  
The one below is a study from a photo looking at bounced light.

Bubble suit 

The suit is a continuation of the work from last week.  Just playing around with ideas.  The interior study is from a photograph.  I did it after looking at a breakdown of an interior by Kayurova  on Artstation.

Practice Practice

Suits Variations
 Spent this week working on technique.  Looking at some different approaches to get a cleaner finish and setting a work flow up to allow easy editing.  Also looking at material rendering and to that end did this study of a hockey goalie pad from photo reference.
