Chiswick.

I'm still working on editing my sketches from Stockholm, it's quite a lot of work as I'm coloring some of them too, I want to try different ways to use photoshop. These ones below are sketches I've done during a meeting 3 weeks ago.

Oh, I hope you'll show some without coloring! I LOVE the immediacy and power of your black and white ones. Photoshopped color is not always an improvement, to my eyes, anyway.

Stef said...

Thank you Laura. I agree with you on this point, photoshop can kill the spontaneity of a raw line, but I'm working on different way to use my "raw" sketches and see what can I achieve, without overdoing it, which could be a challenge sometimes.
I'll show the original sketch and the color version.

I go to Chiswick very often and I never seen these persons. I think that you are fibbin

Stef said...

-Thanks Beau. I should post them very soon.

-Nope, I never use it Elliot, I tried few times but find it too complicated, too many settings, I find photoshop more spontaneous. I wanted to try to do some digital watercolour with it, but I wasn't impressed by the results.
Are you using it Elliot?

- It's because they are Disney people Oscar, the ones I drew from the back didn't even have a front! very strange people.

Elliot said...

Yes Stef - I use it all the time. In fact almost every single thing on my blog is done in Painter.
I use the Scratchboard tool and the watercolour tools and rarely anything else.
Interestingly I find Photoshop very difficult to draw in and rarely bother.

If you don't post the drawings of Sweden, nobody will believe you ever went there and think you spent time in a Turkish prison instead.

CHISWICK!!!! Bust out the Shtockholm drawings, the suspense is giving me blisters.

Smook said...

Beautiful sketches as always ... I am thinking to try out the brush technique ... Is your brush one of those Japanese brush with ink cartriage or your use traditional brush and ink well?

Drazen said...

nice
I like the guy with sideburns

Stef said...

-Thanks guys! I'm glad to hear that you can't wait to see the sketches from Stockhlom, I'll post them this weekend probably as I'm quite busy at the moment.

-Alina, my brush pen is a Kamei with cartridges, or I use a Pentel one sometimes too, but the Kamei is top because the brush is natural hair, feels more like a real brush. Are you in Comicon Alina this July?

Matthew Cruickshank said...

Back off buddy, Alina's all mine

the doodlers said...

Ah, so now it comes out. That Disney people have no fronts.... interesting...


Fine sketches frontless or not.

Wow! Brilliant stuff... Actually I've drawn almost the same kind of views from one my airplane trips as the ones on the very top.. It was a bit of a deja vu feeling. :)

Alina Chau said...
