I’ve been working on a full rapidograph illustration and I’ve been using most of my drawing time on it, hence the small lack of activity. But these Marker exercises are just getting more and more entertaining!

Im soon to recover my scanner lol, would you like to see these kind of drawings available as prints at Redbubble or INPRNT?

This week I bring to you @iamtxg !


This is trans portraits positivity. Every week I’ll draw 2 portraits of trans people who post selfies here on tumblr (I follow mostly @dailytransselfies, @brownandtrans, #thisiswhattranslookslike and #transselfies). I hope this project helps with our self-esteem and immortalise those moments when we felt  so good that we took a selfie and shared with the world.

(via 100 years of motion-capture technology)

…Rotoscoping was a primitive and time-consuming process, but it was a necessary starting point for the industry. In the rotoscope method, animators stood at a glass-topped desk and traced over a projected live-action film frame-by-frame, copying actors’ or animals’ actions directly onto a hand-drawn world. The technique produced fluid, lifelike movements that animators couldn’t achieve on their own.

The first full-length American film to use rotoscoping was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which debuted in 1939, and Disney used the technique in subsequent films, including Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and Peter Pan. Though actual mocap systems were still decades away, rotoscoping was precisely the proof of concept the field needed – clearly, it paid off to mimic real people’s actions as closely as possible in animated spaces…

I drew @therealjacksepticeye based off a small sketch I did while I was bored in Maths. The colours are roughly inspired by the How Did We Get Here Tour colour palette, which I personally really like. I rarely draw with colour schemes like this, but it was a lot of fun!

I mainly used coloured pencils with the addition of a single light blue marker, which has officially died, RIP marker. The final drawing is on A3 size paper, about 10 times larger than the original sketch. To give a sense of how big that is, there’s a picture of me holding up the drawing.
