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).
