First Tutorial Drawings

Below are the drawings I did for the tutorial. The first three are new, and were done while Tom was trying to set up a good camera angle in prep for the video.

Hey Alan thanks for getting back to me about how you sot your Draw Night started. I actually had my first one with my friend last night. It wasn't a long one cause it was last minute but it was soooo fun I don't think I have ever just sat down with someone and drew with them. It took us a little while to figure out what to start drawing so we ended up just drawing each other since we were sitting in front of each other but it was soo much fun, I can't wait till our next one. Thanks again for replying back to me. I just have to think of some ideas of what we can draw on our next one.

Huzzah! Glad to see you put these up. It'll be nice to take a look at these in conjunction with the video.

larry: awesome. Glad to see more drawing nights out there. I think some people really like themes and others just like to fart around. I usually fit in the latter category, but play it by ear. Thanks for sharing the story.

jacob: no problem. I need to get a higher-rez one up shortly. Tom was a superstar and managed to get a nice-looking one at 150M.

Jacob, aka IAmWickedStupid said...

That's ace. Do you know of any way to post the video so that it would be downloadable, by any chance?

Alan Tew said...

jacob: that's the plan. More later.

Looks really good, anime inspired

Just to add another "awesome, way to go" to the list of praise :p.
I found your video very inspirational and informative. You mentioning "the lines I care about" particularly resonated with me.

And to confirm I wasn't seeing things, you were using a coloured pencil? What brand/make/model?

Alan Tew said...

drawings: thanks.

sabine: thanks also. It was a colored pencil of some sort. I'm not sure the brand... I borrowed the pencil and big pad of paper from one of the concept artists at work, so maybe he can chime in; follow the link to Jon Diesta and ask him. I usually draw with a simple 0.5 HB mechanical pencil (I'm only particular about the feel of the grip and like straight plastic) and whatever printer paper I have around me.

Hey, I thought I posted back with Mr. Diestas answer. He uses a coloured pencil from Prismacolour called Tuscan Red Col erase.

Unfortunatley, these exact ones cost a small fortune this side of the pond (Europe).

Alan Tew said...

Thanks man. I remember the pencil was soft, which was handy because I was using Jon's paper, which was real smooth; I need a certain amount of catch or grip between the pencil and the paper.
