Test of a new technique: dry pastel.
Two drawings made after photographs. The first is a gift for a friend and his wife.
The rest are observation sketches.
Aline had an important meeting this afternoon, that she shouldn't miss in any circumstances. This painting was made by my desire to return to gouache.
Having no experience in the Character design area, my idea was to draw random views of imaginary people.
The following roughs have often been drawn in the public transports.
InktoberSaturday, 1 October > Monday, 31 October 2016 
For the realization of my first Inktober, my allies were the usual tools: the ballpoint pen, watercolor and correction fluid.
By luck, my last drawing is also the one I prefer (the child and her pet). Effectively, I came up with a strategy to minimize the "bored time". This expression starts from the observation that the creation of a drawing is a long and laborious process, the illustrator will therefore inevitably get bored: not good for the result.
In order to reduce it, my plan was to do all the steps at the same time: light sketch, watercolor, ballpoint pen, without any time limit and no particular order. I was certainely shy on the application of this idea, but its setup pleases me for the future :)
Based on photographs, here are some sportsmen drawn in various techniques.
