Ziggy Stardust Themed Life Drawing

We started off our June music themed life drawing sessions with a bang! The multi-talented and delightful Hamish treated us to a song and was every bit a rockstar as Ziggy Stardust.

Our music theme continues in our next session on June 21st featuring none other than the King, Elvis Presley!  Join us for a hip shaking and fun sketching!

Details can be found on the Covert Characters FB page.


Surrealist Cloud Themed Life Drawing

Last life drawing class featuring Tilley and her fantastic Cloud Surrealist costume. The poses and costume made for a dream like atmosphere for us to capture.

If anyone is interested my next class with Covert Characters will be tomorrow night, June 7th. Details about this and upcoming classes can be found on the website. 


Fairytale “Jewel Thief”

This idea started out as a concept for a new web banner combining symbols from classic fairytales. As I work on it more it developed into its own story of a fairy thief and a magic glowing jewel.

I slowly worked on inking this image a bit at a time in a quiet moment or two as a way to relax amongst all of the events of the last few months.

I still need to make a new web banner but I enjoyed the journey this piece took.


“Mermay” Eel Mermaid Sketch

I didn’t want to May to finish before I did at least one #mermay drawing! This is a blue color pencil and pen sketch of eel like mermaid concept that might feature in the comic I’ve started.

I think I still need to refine the character more working on the balance of alluring but frightening.


Robin Hood Themed Life Drawing Session

Seeing Craig, our model, share one of my drawings on Instagram reminded me that I had forgotten to share my sketches from the start of the month!

These sketches are from Covert Character’s Robin Hood themed night. I think there was a great Classical feel to the poses like each one could be a sculpture or figure from an old oil painting.

FCBD Sketching “Little Boy with Headphones” Time Lapse Video

As part of Free Comic Book Day, All Star Comics Melbourne has an Artist Alley where local artist do free sketches to raise money for the charity, Beyond Blue.

This was my second year participating and this year we set up the camera to record the afternoons sketching.

“Little Boy with Headphones” is probably my favourite drawing of the day. You can see through out the video the boy’s hand pointing at the photo of himself on the phone.

Thank you to everyone that came by to watch, support the cause and request a sketch!


Free Comic Book Day 2017 Artist Alley with All Star Comics Melbourne


Last weekend was Free Comic Book Day and I want to thank the crew at All Star Comics Melbourne for inviting me back to their FCBD Artist Alley this year!

Thank you to everyone that stop to watch me draw, get a sketch and make a donation to this year’s cause – Beyond Blue.

It was especially nice to have friends and family stop by to support me

If I had to pick a favourite sketch from this year I would have to pick the little boy in the headphones.


April Samurai Themed Life Drawing

Last month was crazy! I am just starting to catching up on posts and updates now.

These are sketches from my last life drawing class in April for our Samurai themed session with Chris Masters Mah as our model.

A special thank you to Tristan and Wyman Young for lending us their beautiful wooden katana.

Speaking of updates- I will be hosting Covert Characters Life Drawing tomorrow night May 10th in Fitzroy.

The theme will be Robin Hood. For more details check out the Covert Characters page.

 


Teaching Life Drawing Class March 8th Covert Characters

 

I will be hosting the “80’s Rock Queen” themed life drawing session at Covert Characters this Weds night, March 8th, at Workshop in Fitzroy. I will be speaking a bit about proportion and drawing while observing the figure at the start of the class and answer any questions and providing more tips during the mid point break.

Covert Characters is a great class for anyone new to life drawing or artist wanting to join a causal friendly group to enjoy sketching.

I will be teaching more classes this year and hope to announce them more in advance in the future. Be sure to follow the Covert Character’s Facebook page to keep updated on up coming events 🙂

Examples of my sketches from the last few sessions this year:
