Keyboard Player (5 min. SketchTime iPad Sketch)

Keyboard Player (detail)

I've already written about how great SketchTime is... It is my favourite go-to sketching app for the iPad and iPhone. As it happens I'm beta testing a new version right now, which includes more colours and even more shades of grey! Look for it soon in the Apple app store. This was the first lil' sketch I made while giving it a go on my iPad 3. As with all my iPad and iPhone sketches, I'm letting loose and having fun... not too worried about flubs, more interested in capturing a neat subject with energy and hopefully grace. Lately I've been enjoying selectively building up forms (the face, the forearm) while leaving other parts of the sketch less finished... Very quick sketch (5 minutes).

As a reminder, you can see all my iPhone and iPad sketches at my dedicated iOS sketching site: iosketch.tumblr.com !

Chance Encounter iPad Sketch

Chance Encounter (detail)

Done in Procreate on my iPad 3... definitely going for a loose, sketchy feel here. I've been doing a lot of iPad/iPhone sketches and posting them on twitter and on my iOS sketchblog, iosketch.tumblr.com

Lil' Thief... (sketch)

Process sketch for a new illustration. The drawing took about half a day (lots of referencing old photographs on the net). You may notice that the woman's torso has been adjusted (she's rotated leftwards slightly from the waist up. She was bent much too sharply toward the man in version 1 of the sketch...)

Done using Corel Painter 11's awesome "real 2B pencil" setting on Wacom Cintiq 21 UX.
