Venom Sketches

Image
Here's a page of Venom sketches I did last night. My dad and I saw the Venom movie earlier this week. We really enjoyed it!

A Special Day For Coffee

Image

Judge Harry Stone

Image
Here's a picture I drew awhile back of Harry Anderson as Judge Harry Stone from Night Court. It's sad that he's no longer  with us. Besides being an actor, he was a comedian and magician.

Five-Minute Marker Sketch

Sketch A Day: Sketch #30

Image
Here's a sketch I did of a cartoon vampire. Considering that October is near, I've been thinking about Halloween stuff from time to time.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #29

Image
Here's a sketch of a ghost giving a peace sign.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #28

Image
Here's the twenty-eighth sketch for Sketch a Day. Happy National Comic Book Day!

Sketch A Day: Sketch #27

Image
Here's a sketch of an actress from the new show, Manifest. This is the twenty-seventh drawing for Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #26

Image
My family and I had beans and cornbread for dinner. Except my sister, who had macaroni and cheese. Dinner was great! I sketched a cornbread for number twenty-six of Sketch a Day, and there it is above.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #25

Image
Here's a Charlie Brown/Peanuts-style picture I drew of myself. This is for number twenty-five of Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #24

Image
This is a sketch of Alfred, Bruce Wayne's butler in the Batman comics.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #23

Image
Here's a sketch of Orko, from Masters of the Universe, for the twenty-third sketch of Sketch a Day. I thought I remembered him having two fingers and a thumb on each hand, but it turns out it's three fingers and a thumb on each hand.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #22

Image
Here's a sketch of Spider-Man and his spider sense for sketch number twenty-two.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #21

Image
Here's a smurf character I drew. It's Anxious Smurf.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #20

Image
It's the twentieth sketch of Sketch a Day! This one is of the Joker.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #19

Image
Here's a sketch of what I intended to be a chibi Flash. I don't know a lot about chibi characters, but they seem to have small bodies and big heads. This is for the nineteenth day of Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #18

Image
Today's sketch is for two things: Mr. Bean's birthday is today, and today is also Batman Day. The sketch has a signal over a city, but instead of a Bat Signal, it's the Bean signal. There's a silhouette of Mr. Bean standing in a goofy pose in the signal.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #17

Image
Here's a sketch of a classic smiley face.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #16

Image
Here's my sketch for day sixteen of Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #15

Image
Here's yet another cartoon character sketch for Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #14

Image
Here's another cartoon character sketch.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #13

Image
Here's a cartoon character sketch for day 13 of Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #12

Image
Here's the twelfth sketch for Sketch a Day. It's a smiley face.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #11

Image
I did a pen sketch for the eleventh sketch for Sketch a Day. It's Mole Man, from the Fantastic Four comics. I realized, after sketching the glasses, that there should be two separate slits instead of one long one. But, it's a pen sketch, and pen is difficult to impossible to erase. Besides that, it's a rough sketch and not a final drawing, so I didn't think it was necessary to correct it. I still took a picture from my Kindle, but the pen seems to show up better.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #10

Image
Here's a sketch of a character I drew in a previous drawing. It's the "angry blob" character.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #9

Image
Here's sketch number nine of Sketch a Day.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #8

Image
Here's a sketch of Batman for number eight of Sketch a Day. I decided to start putting the sketch number on the back of each sketch. That way if I especially like a particular sketch the sketch number won't be an eye sore on it.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #7

Image
Here's sketch number seven for Sketch a Day. It's early for jack-o-lantern's, but it was pretty much the first thing that came to mind to sketch.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #6

Image
Here's my sketch for the sixth day of sketches.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #5

Image
I decided to continue Sketch a Day and did a quick sketch number five earlier. It's a generic cartoon dog character. I may keep taking camera pictures of the sketches for awhile, but trying to adjust them in my picture app to try to make them show up better.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #4

Image
Here's a sketch of an apple. I'm not sure how long I'll do this sketch a day thing. I was thinking of doing it until the end of the year, and then maybe starting over at number one on January 1. But, I might want to focus more on other art before then. I'll see how far I go. I thought if I do it again next year I might do it on my Tumblr art blog instead of here.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #3

Image
Here's my third sketch for Sketch A Day. I've noticed that the lenses on Spider-Man's mask look like the eyes of an alien, as pictured here. Coincidence? Or were they trying to give him an alien appearance?

Sketch A Day: Sketch #2

Image
Here's sketch number two for Sketch a Day. It's three leaves. I may try to do scans in the near future. I've been posting pictures of my drawings from my Kindle. They don't seem to show up very well. My Kindle generally takes great pictures though.

Sketch A Day: Sketch #1

Image
Sketch A Day Sketch #1
Christopher Hart, artist and author, has been doing a sketch a day. I decided to start doing that too. So, here is sketch number one.

Christmas In July Doodles

Image
Here are some Christmas in July Doodles I did in my Sketchbook last month.

Tree Sketch

Image
"Tree Sketch"
Here's a tree sketch I did some time ago. I took a camera picture of it rather than scanning it. At the time I thought it would be easier.

Josh's Art Sketcbhook (In Color)

Image
Here's a drawing I did in one of my sketchbooks. It's in pencil and color pencil, and Sharpie pen. I have a picture of it uncolored, so that's why it says "(In Color)" in the title.

National Superhero Day

Happy National Superhero Day, and happy birthday to Jessica Alba who played a superhero (the Invisible Woman in the Fantastic Four movies). Superheroes are something I like to draw sometimes. I think it's cool that there's a day for them.

How To Hold Your Pencil When Drawing (Updated)

I've been researching the various ways to hold your pencil when drawing. One of the things I found was a YouTube video at this link. It's from Proko. It looks interesting. I'm thinking of trying it after this post. I recommend giving the technique a try.

Update: There's another video, this one from Fine Art Tips, about how to hold your pencil when drawing. It's at https://youtu.be/TKagPZSLq6Y.

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund

Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a good cause, and they have a site at www.cbldf.org. I recommend checking it out.

Looking For Inspiration

Inspiration can sometimes be difficult for an artist to find. I've researched some ways to get inspiration, and one of the articles I came across is at this link. It's a page on the For Dummies book site. It may be helpful if you're looking for inspiration.

2018

Happy New Year! It's 2018 now. It's actually January 3. I may see about posting some substantial posts soon. Maybe I'll post some of my art.
