Sketchbook Month: Day 14

Thought I’d try something a little different today for Sketchbook Month. I was thumbing through a drawing book by Andrew Loomis and was utterly amazed at what he was able to do with just a pencil and a little shading. I’ve also really enjoyed my friend Tim Hodge’s recent gorilla sketches. So I combined the two—I did a Google image search for “gorilla” and found this photo, and then tried to sketch it ala Loomis. Then I slapped in some color in Photoshop with a low-opacity brush to suggest a hint of watercolor. It made for a really fun break from the cartoony doodles I’ve been doing lately.
