Evil cockroaches and tooth fairies!

I saw two Guillermo del Toro films today. The first was Mimic(1997), directed by del Toro and it was my first time seeing it. The other one was Don't be Afraid of the Dark(2011) which was co-written and produced by him. I liked both movies but I prefer the cinematography from the latter one; del Toro's obsession toward evil and hideous tooth fairies really shines in this one and it was such a fun movie to watch! I did some camera studies while watching them and it was so much fun. Here are some studies I did on my sketchbook. They're done with black pentel stylo and china markers and then edited in Photoshop.

I'm gonna try to make this a consistent habit. I really do feel that I learn a lot sketching from movies; adding this to my New Year's Resolution!!


Santa Monica sketch outing!

I went to Santa Monica today with my friend Thomas for a sketch outing. We both rented a bike and cycled from Santa Monica pier to Venice beach and then all the way to Pacific Palisades before returning to Santa Monica. We made stops in-between to sketch people and here are some sketches from today that I like!

I'll be going off to New York in two days for about a week and a half for Christmas and New Years; I'm hoping to come back with some amazing sketches! I CAN'T WAITTTT!!!!
