Church Sketches – Moustache Man


Moustache Man Portrait Charge/Caricature

Finished scanning my grey sketchbook!! Posting pages out of order.
Comic artist Dirk Grundy reminded me in a recent post that caricature is an important skill, too! So instead of aiming for +++ accuracy (like the upper left image), I thought I’d try messing with proportions (like the lower left drawing!). OK, so it’s more like a “portrait charge” (French, look it up) than a hardcore caricature, but still!

Gazellican Dragon Attempts


So for AAAGES I’ve been trying to render these dragons from my supernovel, which have bodies like pelicans but heads like gazelles/antelopes/elands/whatever.

Now I have 2 of these dragons as main characters in my Greatest Nosferatu Love Story of All Time novel. So I really gotta buckle down, you know?

Here are many attempts.
