Sketched this of a fella in a wheelchair while waiting at an airport gate.  Felt rather pretentious of me, but oh well...beats staring at a phone-screen.


Still hoping to one day get control of half-tones via hatch-density.

Managed to eek out another one today.  Thorin Oakenshield heavily inspired by a rough sketch on Justin Gerhard's blog (2014 post).

What a hat!

Excellent work, Steven! What paper are you using for the last one? Are you using white pastel?

Thanks Paul.  It's the Strathmore Toned Tan paper and the white both a PrismaColor white pencil and a Gelly Roll in a few places.

The golden tone the image picked up was the old incandescent bulbs in my Dad's house I turned on to photograph the page last night.  I liked it, so didn't adjust it digitally. 

Usually I take drawings outside, into the shade, to snap a pic so there's often more blue.  Sometimes I hit the "de-saturate" button in GIMP if it's too much, sometimes not.
