Gesture sketches

A few sketches with a brush pen...

The Singing Pirates

I am playing with different pens and liking the variation in size.  The line work is more like a fine point felt marker and the darks are more of a brush pen.  This was done, as usual, in Manga Studio 5EX.

Homework Sketches...

Some Notes from my son's homework....

Halloween Pirate Book

Preparing for a hand out for a school visit.  Trying to break down, into small lessons, how to draw a Pirate!  The hand out is only 8 pages and it is roughly 4" x 5" so it will be small ...

I am looking at option 1 as it seems the most distinct.  Maybe just a single face or a simple scene.  Number 4 may be a little less playful but I like to the look of this also. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Next I will have a page on expressions : Eyes and Sneers and such,  showing how to draw the teeth and lips in a good Pirate SNARL!

Different Types of Hair will be next, from squiggles to furry to the pony tail and you have to have the twisted mustache!

The last few will be mostly scenes and different body types.  Tall and thin or short and Fat hopefully in some funny situations.
