Chuck Bass In Progress.

Gouache on stretched Canson Mi-Tientes paper in Buff. The suit needs to be pushed back a little bit as far as saturation goes. Anyway, onto my favorite part: color pencils!

I'm On A Roll! GG Color Comps.

I guess it's just one of those days where I'm oddly inspired and productive!

Let me know if you have any favorite(s) or any other color suggestions! The only things I want to stick to are: Chuck's purple suit, Blair's red lipstick & white dress. I might come up with other variations with her headband/bow thing.

Gossip Girl Strikes Back, and Vin D.

So, I know I've drawn The boys of Gossip Girl before, but I'm way too intrigued by Chuck Bass's face to not draw him again.

Here is a start of a sketch (photographed, hence the quality):

...and a more finalized sketch (scanned):

I decided to draw Blair Waldorf while I was at it, too:

Leighton Meester is gorgeous... and I love her immature & manipulative character so much.

I'm pretty sure I will be taking these drawings to a final piece. I already have a color scheme in mind (purple for Chuck Bass and white&red for Blair).

Also I've started working on Vin Diesel. Since I'm not too sure about the drawing for this one, I've decided to experiment with this and just mess around. I like it so far:

It's gouache & a little bit of color pencils on stretched Canson Mi-Tientes paper in light blue. I might even take it into digital and play with collage-y elements to see what happens.

Vin D, Stop Being Difficult.

So, I'm starting to do a stylized portrait of Vin Diesel. Here are some preliminary sketches:

It's my first time drawing someone with no hair. Also while he has distinct features (nose, chin, eyebrows) I'm having the hardest time capturing his likeness. The drawings I've done sort of all look like Vin Diesel's relatives, but not himself. Hopefully the final will turn out better.

^ My references. w00t I have Vin D staring at me all day. Also watching xXx on mute was da bomb.
