sketches

Yesterday I spent the whole morning watching music videos on youtube.com, trying to capture the characteristic movements of female singers such as Madonna and Björk.
I was in a creative dip and these excercises are great to recapture the feeling of what it is all about (in my opinion): looking and keep looking at people. How they move, how they are dressed etc.
I'm not joining a class, but this is almost as good.

If you look close enough you can see the first cartoon too!

Boris Yeltsin

There was a contest at the forum of the NCN: draw Boris Yeltsin, and there was one limitation: no digital stuff.
I found it a fun challenge, having become totally digitalized the last few years.
So I went to van Ginkel in Arnhem and bought some gouache and this is what I came up with:
