My Sketches from the GG Park Meet

I almost forgot to post these up!

This time I decided to step out of my usual comfort zone and took a stab at non-character related subject matter in various media. I'm happy with the way the watercolor turned out and anxious to discover the way to add more layers for a thicker look.

Also, I tested out toned paper for the first time as well. The charcoal gave me some trouble, but over all, it was fun.

Sketching @ Yerba Buena, Thursday, 6pm

Hey everyone,

We're going to try and get together for an evening of sketching this Thursday evening at 6pm. The place? The park between the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and The Metreon. I figure we got a couple hours in the sun before we have to move inside and I'm really getting used to the springtime sun. So bring your sketchbook, drawing pad, random pieces of paper and your drawing sticks and let's do this thing!

33 Revolutions Live Band performance

hi all,

Just wanted to post this sketch I did at 33 Revs while this jazz band was playing. I had no idea was going to take it as far as I did and as quickly as I did it. This took me two hours to do altogether. I am so proud of myself for getting something done very quickly.

I went to the very first one and I have to say it was a blast. This is a monthly event that my friend hosts. It's pretty intense - you're surrounded by a whole bunch of other creative artists, drawing practically non stop. It has a pretty chill atmosphere and if you're interested to draw some costumed figures, this is the place to go!

Here's a link to some of the sketches I did that night:

And for more info, here's their blogspot that has a whole bunch of pictures from previous events and other people's drawings:

Sketches from GG Park

Hey everyone,

It's Vincent. Just checking in to post some sketches from Sunday's trip to the Park.

Sketching in GG Park #1

This was my view out from the De Young Cafe. It was a nice day out that day and everything was looking great. I got bored of this pretty quick though and moved on.

Sketching in GG Park #2

During the conversation one of our sketchers said that if he had a superppower, it would be to speak every single language fluently. I'm a visual person and a comic book artist so I immediately thought of this.

Sketching in GG Park #3

I had to leave a little earlieer than everyone else, but before I left I got in a few nice sketches of some things from the Japanese Tea Garden. I wish I had more time there because the flowers and plants were amazing to look at. Great for still life practice!

That's it for now. Hope you all had a great weekend and I want to see you at the next one. That means YOU!
