Mark from last week. I have never seen a bird wearing boots before.

Cool Guy

This guys was walking with attitude while smoking his cigarette. I posed him this way to enhance that cool guy look. hehe.

Yeah, Motocross Boots!

Oh, it was the attitude! 

Sometimes we pick a mark based on the design of their clothing, the shape of their silhouette, or sometimes the coiffure of their hair. But, with this fellow, it was all in the walk!

That hair

I was mesmerized by the puff of hair.  Reminded me of a quote from the Simpsons.

Went by the name of Homer. Seven feet tall he was, with arms like tree trunks. His eyes were like steel, cold, hard. Had a shock of hair, red like the fires of Hell...

The latest mark.

When I saw this guy, I thought to myself, I've seen this look before. Then, it occurred to me, he looked like a strawberry version of Elvis Costello.

Triangle hair guy

I was struggling with the pose. Took me a while but eventually got a decent one.

November 8 mark...

Here's the mark from waaay back in November. I didn't post it because no one else posted theirs. But, now that Todd posted his "drawing," I thought I would post mine. 

Mark Nov 8th

Finally had time to finish the mark from November.

It was the tassels!

Sometimes something catches our eye, this time it was the tassels. (Sorry for the rough scan, I just snapped a picture from my sketchbook.)

In addition to the memory exercise, I practice my line quality. I think it could use a little more line width variation.

Aside  from her unique outfit, I notice this lady was very lengthy and had round shapes.

Manga Reaches the US!

It's official, I saw my first Manga character in person. OK, I've seen plenty of characters at Comic Con, but not just walking around street? This isn't a costume, it's high-fashion! Complete with lollipop! 

I believe the style is called Decora. It started when photographer Aoki Shoichi started to document the street fashion in Harujuku, Tokyo. And, now it seems to have reached the shores of Culver City. 

I believe this is Decora's the first foray into these hallowed halls of Sketchclub.

When we were observing the mark, there
was a shout and she turn. In this illustration,
I wanted to expressed a moment of apprehension.

The blue sketch was my memory sketch. I then decided to look at reference and do a lil painting : )

LYFE or Death?

The air was hot, the birds celebrated the glorious joy of the sun's beat as they darted back and forth from in-between the roses. But still that couldn't explain the chill I felt on this afternoon in July.

From the corner of my eye I saw what my ears already knew. It was the cloppity-clop of tiny heels beating down on the warm sidewalk like a funeral dirge. My eyes feasted on this procession of these two, young, budding, flowers enveloped in morbid gloom.

To add humor to this entire episode, they were headed to a restaurant called LYFE!

This elder man seem to still be young at heart; 
still rocking the long hair, fit shirt and pants.

eRodriguez_marks of the recent past

 Finally got my scanner working. I did some minor editing on some due to the scan quality. 

Beach Pup...

A couple weeks back this pit bull came strolling by our drawing club. I remarked, "There's our memory-sketch!" I emphasized, "NO REFERENCE". It's important to draw what you remember.

(Fact: All dogs in Southern California work-out, and wear stylish sunglasses.)

St. Patrick's Day!

What a little cutie. She looked like she just stepped off the Peanuts comic strip. And, a little green ribbon in her hair too.

Photo's From Today

New camera means new sketchclub photos!  It was a beautiful day out!

I tried something new on this one. Flat colors with white skin. I'm happy with the results. I felt in the zone as I was working on this one.

Blustery Day

Here's my take for the mark. The wind was blowing her hair into her face, so she threw her head back and tried to let the wind push her hair back. I thought to myself, there's the drawing.

Mark 002

A character sketch from memory. In this one, I wanted to try having texture like background with limited rendering.

Monday, January 28, 2013


I drew a sketch of the mark on my sketch book from memory. Then I redrew it on Photoshop. On this one, I put in extra work. I looked at photos to reference some details such as the fold of the scarf and wrinkles of the jacket. And I added color. I'm happy with the results : )
