Sketch Dump #15

Prince of Persia

Jack Gyllenhaal as the Prince of Persia.

I’m running short on blue pencil lead which is a shame, I’m going to have to resort back to grainy, normal lead soon if I don’t get round to getting a new supply!

Here’s a new sketch, haven’t had much of a chance to do as many recently.
Hayley Westenra, great voice, one of my Dad’s favourite singers. This one took a little longer than the rest, since I was trying to be a bit more delicate with her features.

I’m really liking using the blue lead for sketching with, I like the slightly waxy feel on the paper, plus on the practical side, it doesn’t seem to smudge as much as ordinary pencil.

Lemmy

Lemmy from Motörhead.
Not quite so happy about this one, but hey, it was just a quick sketch!

Keira Knightley in King Arthur, not sure I quite got her face right.
I need to practice my clothing and costumes more too, so thought I’d have a go at this.

I got some Derwent Watercolour Pencils at Christmas, thought I’d try them out in my moleskin. Here’s a quick sketch of my mate Steve. He doesn’t have the beard anymore!

And saying as it’s Andy Warhol season at The Mac at the mo, here’s a little play in Photoshop as a tribute.
