Sketch Daily: Free Draw Friday

Cartoon Twenty One Pilots! I’ve wanted to make Tyler and Josh into cartoon characters for a while now, but every time I attempted it, I wasn’t happy with how it was turning out. I think part of the reason I was having so much trouble was that I couldn’t capture their likeness. But then I decided to draw them from the music video Chlorine and putting them into a scene with context helped a lot. I still want to explore different cartoon styles for them, so they might show up again. Ok, who am I kidding? They’ll definitely show up again.

I got a new Christopher Hart book. Yes, this is my 6th one (I think I have an art book addiction, send help). This one is all about cartooning and even includes a section about animals. I really like it because I’m trying to learn how to simplify shapes and details and it gives tons of examples and things to practice. Today I decided to draw a teen boy because I very rarely draw boys and I definitely need the practice. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, but it took me quite a while to get it right. I kept wanting to add too many details and I had to force myself to simplify. I know I’ll get the hang of it eventually, but for now it’s a struggle.

I’ve decided to try to drawing mostly everything in Procreate so that I can improve my digital art skills. And as you can see, they need improvement. I just started learning how to edit brushes. I need to keep tweaking the inking brush I use – it’s still not quite right. And I haven’t figured out how to color things the way I’d like either. It’s going to be a bit of a learning curve but I think it will be worth it in the end.
