I better update this before I get too far behind and too lazy.. Here are some sketchbook pages filled over the few days:

A couple of sketchbook pages. Faces, eyes, gesturals plus some rough looking man on the tram and some noses.

A head, no reference.

I did a sketch a while ago for the Kitsune topic for Character of the Week. I was just playing around with painting the face and then gave up on it.. looks nothing like the original sketch..

More noses and anatomy studies.

B&W sketch of a gun-wielding chick... not sure if I will take it any further. Her static pose is bugging me.

More sketchbook pages, the right one was done on public transport, it's unfortunate that the scary hulking naked dude was actually based on someone. The left one was just some random people around the city and down the bottom are the results of me trying to draw Oddworld characters from memory.. Oddworld was one of my big inspirations for drawing critters and 3D modelling.


  1. wow.... very nice. you are kicking some serious ass!

  2. Mirror Elise, I've seen your poses, postures and they can easily translate into her.
    Just feel where the weight/balance, and why she's in that posture and just rock it.

    And the highlights are always off to the lift. ^^

  3. Thanks for your comments :)

    More reference and storytelling.. got it!

    Oh no.. not the highlights discussion again!! lol!

  4. Just saw your comment today, cause it was on one of the older posts and i completely missed it till now!, anyway yer movie studies are pretty fun but i always get scared about using them as tonal reference cause of all the key lights and reflectors movies use to properly light their characters, still its fun, i always found it tough to find good quality ref though but i found a cool blog for them, check it out.

  5. Hey Elise!

    How are you? I didn't know you had a blog - awesome!

    Nice work, lovin the sketches. You got skillz. Keep em coming!
