Wonder woman sketch

I bought a copy of one of those "One Piece" giant size manga, last week ( containing issues 79-81)and was just getting into reading it today when I realized I was missing my brother , Matt starring as the center square on the YouTube show "Drawn and Quartered"( live Wednesday at 7pm).

So catching the last 15 minutes of the show I decided to see if I could sketch a quick Wonder Woman of my own, in that time frame.

Sketched with orange pencil, ink with Micron PN pen, sumi ink wash, and jelly roll white pen.

Mikey's sketching on scraps.

Had a few scrap pieces of watercolor paper floating about and I hate to waste paper.
So I sketched out one of my old characters ,who will be making more appearances soon.
(Orange pencil sketch, inked with Micron PN pen, and shaded with black water color, with white out touchups.)

Drawn and Quartered Cyber Frog sketch

15 minutes into watching my brother Matt participate on Mike Miller's "Drawn and Quartered"  (a weekly Wed. night live draw show on YouTube) I decided to break out my own pens and ink washes to do a Cyberfrog sketch of my own.

I finished way before the time limit but I decided to add the Logo backdrop and some light hot spots on the his metal limbs, utilizing 10 of those  15 minutes I had missed out on earlier.
                           Here's the results.

I had a lot of fun and learned a little something on speeding up my output during this process too!

Magazine illustration

Here is a little peak at the process of turning an old pen sketch into a new illustration for a soda pop Magazine #2 article, inviting cosplayers to submit their photos and to be featured in the magazine.

Step one redraw the imagine first with pencil and then ink with a waterproof ink pen.

Then add watercolor and jellyrol whitepen for highlights and corrections.

Cossin Bros. were sketching last night.

Here's a little look at the Cossin Bros very unique styles from a late night sketching session.
Matt's was done as part of the YouTube show  "Drawn and Quartered live edition"(Wednesday nights). The were all doing a Mad Max theme last night.
Matt chose to sketch the *Mel Gibson helmed
 "Road Warrior" (*the only Max in my opinion) using just ink( his tools of choice a dip pen and some ink wash).
At the same time ,Mikey was off to the side doing his own little sketch but of a Kitten Cosplay- Battle Angel (tools-smith micron PN, water color).
