Drawing Club: Steampunk

IT'S ALIVE....for now. Sorry for my absence! A full time gig, trying to keep up with freelance, and attempting to get my life back on the healthy track takes away from precious blog time. Don't worry i have a whole stack of drawings that have been piling up since my last post. But for now I'm going to take it one step at a time and post a couple sketches from tonight's Drawing Club of the talented Vikki Paschetto's Steampunk theme.


these were done with a ballpoint pen, greyscale markers (20/50/70), and a schwartz black pencil

Pagas: Grazie mille per il tuo commento gentile. E 'molto apprezzato. :]

Carrie: haha wooo props! I just treat ball-point as a pencil, use it really soft for the gesture lines and then tighten it up slowly. I like that it's a indirect direct media :P

Chris: Thanks!

Gabby: Thanks, hopefully I'll stay on top of the blog now and not have such a long absence

Brao: Thanks much!

Ryan: Thanks, sometimes I like to get a little texture in my sketches. The smooth marker values with the roughness of a pencil provide a good contrast

Ramona: Thanks! And yes, I started with the pen. The ball-point was used for my initial sketch and to tighten it up, used the value markers to separate shapes, and the black pencil for additional shading, reinforcing line and to add a bit of texture

Davin: Thanks man!

Moe: Thanks! and thanks for reminding me that it had been a while :]
