Self Portrait 23 of 100

Hey Guys!

Got a little graphic illustration for ya tonite! I'm kind of going back and forth about how accurate this drawing is... At any rate, I think it's a pretty good one. I was inspired by the awesome ink work of Scott Fischer. Didn't really come close to emulating his style, but I think I'll give it another go.

Ryan says I need to do more work in Black and White (I don't think this is what he had in mind though) and work on form. Deal with showing volume in a two dimensional space. I agree totally with him, and (Believe it or not buddy) I do think about it a lot. This blog is just as much about experimenting with styles and techniques as trying to do some drawing everyday, so I do plan on working consistently towards that goal of form.

What I'm trying to get around to saying, is to look for more grayscale drawings and digital paintings in the future. Seventy-seven more drawings in this set, and I really hope to have made a leap or two past where I am now, by then.

Man... I'm looking old, and am getting fat. huh.

Take care and be good!
Your friend
