Just recently I have been revisitng some old characters of mine – Super Roo and Ninja Galah, and so at todays Ace Comics Drawing meet I thought I’d draw them up in a nice picture together against a new enemy – the Drop Bears!
Further to Saturday’s post of my long necked turtle eating pizza from July’s meetup of the Ace Comics drawing group, here are the rest of my sketches from the day. Some of my koala characters and random people who where at the comic book store to play games for the day. Also I am designing a tree for my August merchandise – stay tuned for more!!
You can’t beat a morning of drawing followed by a pizza lunch! This is what happens at the Ace Comics Drawing Meetup. Next one is on Saturday 29th – see you there!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s drawing group at Ace Comics in Annerley. Had a great time last month with arty friends and we even ordered pizza.
Heres hoping for another great day socialising, drawing and eating more pizza!
My third picture from Sundays Painting and Drawing Meetup Group in Brisbane was of the face of a lion statue in King George Square. I just wanted to capture the face on one page. The eyes proved a challenge as there was quite a lot going on with light and shape to work out. It was even more fitting that the Winter Festival was playing music from The Lion King in the background haha.
Here’s my second sketch from yesterdays Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup group. It was a of the awesome sculpture half way up City Hall. Lots of details and light to take into consideration.
Today was the July Meetup for the Brisbane Painting and Drawing group and it was held at King George Sq in the City.
As I was waiting for others to arrive I drew this picture of one of the soldiers on horseback statue. Normally I am quickly drawing people and animals as they pass me by, so it was nice to concentrate on a stationary object and put a little bit more time into it…
Ill post the next two pictures on Monday and Tuesday so please come back to have a look. And please also come along to the next meetup in August 🙂
Tomorrow is the next meetup for the Brisbane Painting and Drawing group. I’m the organiser for this month and have decided to hold it at King George Square so we can sketch away at the Winter Festival of all the ice skaters and a touch of winter in sunny Brisbane!
