Two more of my sketches from my trip to Tuscany this June. This is Leirici near la Spezia.
One more of my sketches from my trip to Tuscany this June. This is probably Sarzana.
A sketch in Cologne I did a few weeks ago. It was raining and we had to fend of a slightly disturbed woman who wanted to model for us (and deliver a monologue of the most boring kind).
This is a sketch I did at the German Comic Con in Dortmund. I went there because I was supposed to hold a drawing workshop. A Comic Con is not quite my scene. I am not into superheroes, I like certain animes but I am no expert.
I actually asked the girl if I could draw her, because she sat down very close to me for a break before she went to the stage of the Cosplayer Award and I didn´t want to offend her staring at her. Unfortunately I didn´t get the name of her character, something with Lou but I am not sure. The costume looked really great, I hope she won something with it.
I didn´t take a picture, because I always had the feeling that these events consist of middle aged men like myself taking pictures of scarcely clad teenage girls, in this case I regretted that, because the colored version of the same drawing I did afterwards is very much guesswork. I didn´t get that she was wearing hot pants (and a lot of other details because she was sitting down).
I travelled home by train from Dortmund that evening and after all the costumes all the people in the train seemed suddenly very grey….
The drawing on the left is foutain pen in my sketchbook, the drawing on the right is the same drawing coloured digitally.
A slightly unfinished drawing based on one of my photographs of Céleste (if you’re interested click here – Céleste portrait)). The big problem about making this kind of pictures is when to stop….this drawuing is somehow related to the famous Dürer selfportrait in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich from 1500. I like renaissance art a lot.
