I know I've been sketch of the day already, but I want to be SOTD in a pub in colour now, just like Frazer. And I warn you, I sulk very badly if I don't get my way...

Hey steve your sketches are more like paintings. I think your spendiing too much time at the bar, lol. But it doesn't show on your sketches, lol. Keep up the good work. How many differnt colors do you use for example in this sketch? I bought the 6 pitt artst pen basic an the 6 pitt artist pen terra Faber castell packs.

Your sketches are awesome keep up the good work!!!

Hans, I reckon you just ain't ugly enough. That said, I'm sure your time will come, a few more visits from Brother Steve and you will look as care worn as I do.

Hans Jenssen Illustration said...

My dear Munich, as far as ugly goes, I think Brother Steve did us both a favour!

Hey guys, this is a favorite of mine, I'd like to sketch all my friends in all the various bars, that could well be my calling.

Faber-Castell Pitt pens come in about 40 colors and I use them all. I try to use the brush pens as I would a paint brush mixing the colors on the page.

Hans, Fraser, you are both truly beautiful after I've has a couple of pints.

Some day... some day I'm going to have the time to devote to being able to sketch like you do. I love this one!

Stephen Gardner said...

Thanks Sandy, it really is about time and practice, I started this project about 4 years ago and I try to give a little to each day, as far as that is possible. I urge you to keep at it.

Sandy said...

You know, you have probably been my biggest inspiration (and Rob Carey) to keep trying to draw every day.

Stephen Gardner said...

Daily drawing is really tough and there are many days when I don't have the time but others when I do a bunch so it evens out. Keep it up Sandy.
