In 2012 I picked up a pencil for the first time in almost twenty years. I call myself a sometimes artist as I am still learning all the techniques I’ve forgotten and developing a style that I feel comfortable with. The most important thing is to never give in and keep drawing outside your comfort zone, I hope you enjoy my journey so far…
Welcome to the last ‘Drawing Outside Your Comfortzone’ for 2016, the series of posts that exist to prod you into just drawing!
Now, I have never once pretended to be a good artist, through trial and error, and a lot of practice I’ve managed to make a few things work – with only a few more hours left in 2016 and it is time to take a look at the art I have drawn, sketched, and attempted over 2016.
Inktober is an annual event set in the month of October, the idea is you draw one ink-based sketch a day for thirty-one days. This is the third year I have taken part in this event and this year I choose the theme of Teddy Bear/Superhero mash-ups, with of course, my traditional Halloween themed Monster sketch to cap the event off at Day 31… Take the jump and see how I did.
Hello, did you all notice all the art and stuff on my website? I have a lot and it is hard to keep track of everything that I do… From Powerpuff/Teddy Bear Pop Culture Mashups, to Sketch Covers and Comic book pages. I simply cannot always update Alt World Studios to keep up with everything! So… What to do?
Like all things this all started very innocently… To grow my art style I decided to have a go at drawing the Powerpuff Girls, with their bold, but simple dynamic shapes, and heavy lines I wanted to see what I could take from this clean style. In an evening I had drawn Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup, and had a blast drawing them. From there I drew Bubbles dressed as Supergirl for my Daughter… And it sort of exploded…
Recently the Hero Ted Kickstarter to get our Superhero Teddy Bear’s comic book published ended, and we were successful. One of the rewards of this project was a hand drawn sketch card of Hero Ted; also the first day adopters also got a sketch card for jumping on board.
