A sneak peek to my sketchbook #13

Hello!

I have been quite busy the last month as I have been studying hard for my exams. Despite all this madness (my desk is covered in books and papers), I somehow managed to finish my second stetchbook! Okay, I won’t lie, I still have one page left, but I did it!

As it mainly consists of mini comics written in greek, which I didn’t have time to translate, I have selected the drawings that I like best to post here today!

So lets begin!

I can never resist drawing my original characters, so every sketchbook has to start with them! Here we have Achilles looking super confused and fabulous!

If you have read many of my previous posts, you surely have realized my fascination with greek mythology! I really like Homer’s Iliad (if you were wondering about Achilles’s name) and this time I tried another interpretation of Helen of Troy and Paris (not the city but the warrior). Although I imagine Helen being a brunette, a tried a different depiction of her with blonde hair and not being extremely young as I usually draw her.

Another obsession of mine, the 19th-20th century and ‘La belle epoque’ (especially the fashion) so the sketches that follow are inspired by that era’s spirit. No 3 is a young gentleman who probably just lost the last chariot.

Well, the ‘resting bitchface’, as I think it is called is not a modern discovery. This is a character design of No 3’s fiancee. She is angry because her boyfriend stood her up for their date. The poor guy has lost the chariot but she doesn’t know it because mobile phones don’t exist yet! Oops! (that’s why I love this era, you can wreak havoc out of nothing)!

Cabaret dancer admiring a little puppy at one of her breaks! Go back on scene girl, Moulin Rouge ain’t entertain itself!

After she went back on scene she had the Merilyn accident before even Merilyn was born.

That’s pure 19th century fashion! I drew this while reading Jane Austen’s books that were quite an inspiration!

Perspective exercise!

Meet Mary! My friend and I were observing the balconies of the flat beside our school and were trying to guess what kind of people lived in the appartments. My guess is that Mary lives on the second floor, she is vegan, likes yoga and her boyfriend and roomate is a future CTO of a security company! (for the record, my friend and I are big Sherlock fans).

Belle! My favourite ever princess!

Just an accidental kiss between Hermes and Cybele (why is it so defficult to write greek names in English?). It was previously mentioned that I am a greek mythology nerd, so no more explanations!

Colour! At least! That’s a phoenix!

Untill the next time, have fun!

A sneak peek to my sketch book #12

Hello everyone!

It’s been quite a while since the last time I posted a sketchbook related article! Today I strike again with some new creations!

The amazing eyebrows of Vivian Leigh! One of my vintage idols and favourite actress to draw!

Speaking of vintage idols, here’s Audrey Hepburn, in cartoon and realistic version!

Some character design for my comic! Lovely couple and mighty warrior!

4.

As a devoted fan of the «Phantom of the opera» book/story I couldn’t resist drawing some characters! So, here’s a frightened Christine and good-looking Raoul!

5. IMG_20180327_213916

All of my obsessions in one picture! Dancing, couples, 1900’s vintage clothes! It’s from an upcoming comicstrip »Yves & Pauline»

SOME COLOUR! What a surprise! This lovely gnome family was just handed the bill of their vacations!

7.

«Apollon is wearing my clothes again»! Sibling troubles at Mt Olympus! Another story of mine, greek mythology parody, featuring Hermes and his sarcastc comments.

8. IMG_20180426_225544IMG_20180428_123409

Some last glimpses of my comic’s concept art! I currently work on four-five different stories (no wonder why I never finish them)! Here we have panic at the palace with princess and prince having equally bad time.

That’s all for the time being and stay tuned for more and more! (don’t worry I never run out of ideas)! Have great week!
