Head Sketches x4 120716 by EzJedi Head Sketches x4 120716 by EzJedi
Sorry I haven't posted much lately here on DA, I've been super busy with work and life and really haven't had much time for personal art. So to start making up for it here's some heads I did for practice this morning. Each one took about 10-15 mins.

I'm tring to learn from some of the modern greats and get more anatomical reality into my characters. Also trying to get better at drawing diverse attractive male characters; as a straight white guy it can be hard to resist just drawing sexy females over and over, but I'm committed to getting better at representing all diverse genders and races in my work. Whilst not represented here, that does include Elves. :D

I'm a lot more active on Instagram these days (though still sporadic, I'm a busy man!) than I am here on DA, so follow me over there if you wanna see more of my stuff. However, I will try to get some more personal and portfolio stuff up here soon! Thanks for your infinite and undying patience peeps.:thumbsup:

Niiiice, I didn't realise they were such quick work when I saw them on the instagrams. I'm liking bottom left's hair do and bottom right's perfect nose :nod:. Is this your custom pencil in action? They're convincingly pencilly looking =D

Yeah, trying to get that fabled fluidity to my sketching, so speeding up the foundations feels like an important step. Seems it's my turn at the bottom of the art yoyo this week, so issues of style yada yada... *sigh* It really never does end does it? sigh 

It is indeed my pencil tool; I dunno if I'm just convincing myself that it feels more authentic, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'd love to see what an actual skilled artist could do with it! :D

It suuuuure does Cutie Sad Nod But I'm noticing it hasn't happened when I'm being paid to produce for clients (at least so far-god I hope I haven't just jinxed my whole career). But between jobs? WELCOME BACK TO SELFDOUBTSVILLE PARDNER OH THE HORROR 

Perhaps I've inadvertently put pressure on myself because I keep saying "I'll post some personal stuff soon" to the whole of DA with a megaphone:scared:

I guess having a deadline means less time for the ol' doubts to creep in =D

Yeah I guess that's probably it. Maybe I should get my other half to set me deadlines for everything else, 'cause right now any personal stuff is a non-starter. Uuuuuuugh, so lame sigh

SO LAME! :shakefist:
Were you working on a comic at one point or did I just make that up?

No, I definitely stated my intention to, but I put it on the back burner to focus on getting professional work. Still something I'd like to do though, I even have whole sections of story drafted out for some scifi shorts I was planning. I think I was scared to get out there and be judged by other working artists before, so spending months hiding away creating a comic seemed appealing at the time. Something's changed in me since then; decided it was time to sh*t or get off the pot (a vulgar but apt phrase in this case). 

One day down the road I'm definitely going to give sequential storytelling a go, it's just low on my list of priorities.
