Car sketch - a smaller and quiet version of "bus sketch"

Yesterday evening I was parked with my car, waiting to do some workout at the jim (which incidentally was suicidal).

By the way, at some point this really funny guy walk down the street: he was long, thin, with a peculiar hairdo.

I had my sketchbook (duh), so I took my chance with it.

Something personal

Hi there!

Couple of weeks ago, an idea popped up in my mind.

Actually it was a dream. From that dream, I started to think about a personal project, something I really believe in. It is taking shape in my head, and as long as I stay focused on that, it may turn out good.

Luckily, I'm not alone in this, somebody's helping me a lot, and today we went for a walk in town, taking pictures, watercolor sketches, and a nice coffee with croissant!

We're planning to do it every weekend, let's see what happens!

Bus sketch

Today I went to the eye doctor. I'm not going to get blind anytime soon.

I took the bus, 'cause I don't want to poison the world with my car (don't listen to the people sayin' I can't really drive).

Sure enough, I had my sketchbook, so I took the chance to do some real-life sketching of the people on the bus. The lines are a bit shaky, I had to draw when the bus was queued at the traffic light...

New sketches...happy now?

Here are some sketches I'm posting quikcly, otherwise somebody is going to get mad at me...

The first one is a pencil and watercolor sketch I did for a ChiUstream contest, is called "Mermaid Morning Care", and it managed to get even a vote! Wow, I'm celebrating.

This is the original sketch. Now that I think about it, I should have leave it as it was, but being smarter than a fox, I managed to mess around with color and -way too much- saturation, ending up with this:

Second sketch is for today ChiUstream contest. Subject: a caricature of great artist Jason Seiler. Some of the guy participating posted pretty amazing stuff. But it's a really hard challenge, prize being an original caricature of the winner made by Seiler himself.

Huge prize! Intense stuff!
