Watchers

Totally into Spider-Man at the moment. As a result, in between commission work, I've been trying to keep up the artwork with some daily sketching and using some lesser known/unsung heroes and villains from the comic. Most of this I do to stick up on Instagram 'cos it's quicker than DA but wanted to submit some to DA 'cos I'd done quite a few.                                                     

Hope you like 'em!

Much love!

Mary Jane Watson
Mary Jane Watson sketch from the other night. Didn't really know who to draw but had a female physique pose already drawn in my sketchbook so appropriated it into MJ.

The Lizard
Some more from the Instagram account. Again, just practicing my characters and trying to make sure I do some practice every day.

Cardiac BW
I'd never heard of Cardiac before but thought he was a cool looking character. And it's always fun to put your own spin on them.

Hey Rob!

I just found your art and i really love the amount of figure studies you do.

I was wondering though if you mind if i download some of these and collate them into a large sheet. 
My group has a convention coming up where we do commissions on the floor for people, and i've been wanting to piece together a reference board with different poses, hands and anatomical perspectives for our artists to have on hand if they're unsure about the proper proportions, or how to draw a particular pose.
We're a small art community of friends that just love art, but not all of us are at the same level, which is why i wanted to have a reference board, for those who aren't as adept as others.
The bits i was hoping to use were :
Sketchbook arms and Hands
Sketchbook Studies: Hands
All-arm Clock
Sketchbook figure studies 1

I'd love to have your permission to use them

Thanks!

Aaron

Hi Rob. Your work is and has remained an inspiration over the years. I read somewhere that you were considering making a book on muscle anatomy. Is it finished and if so where can I buy it? Also are you opposed to making critiques on other aspiring artist works?

Hello buddy, thanks for the kind comments, glad you like what you see. I would very much love to do a book on muscle and comic book anatomy, it's just finding the time. I work a typical 9:00 - 5.30 and all my illustration stuff is done in my spare time. I also have a family so spare time is even sparer! :D BUT, it is definitely a project I'm working on and when it's done you shall definitely know about it! 

In the meantime, I'd definitely recommend 'copying' some of your favourite comic artists as practice. When I say copying I don't mean exactly like for like. What I like to do is try and break down the figure and see/learn how they've done it. I find it really helps with things like foreshortening.

I'm happy to critique work mate, no problem. I checked out your gallery and your memorised figure sketch is really good. Especially for a pose that's so tricky!

Thanks again for the kind comment, cheers! :thanks:
