Sketchbook Pages 7- Chris Whetzel

Sorry I haven't posted much sketchbook stuff lately. Honestly, its because I've been pretty unsatisfied with everything going on in there. So that makes me sketch less, and then its a vicious cycle...

Anyway, here's some recent stuff I don't completely hate. I've been inspired to get back into the books since that's where the real work takes place.

Sometimes I mess around in Sketchbook on the ipad. It can be fun to draw digitally, but it doesn't replace the feel of an actual sketchbook:

Next is some stuff from figure drawing. Decided to not show more visible nudes after a fellow artist had his blog censored. So here's another sketcher from class drawing the model and a foray into using the brush pen for life drawing:

 And here's stuff from the regular sketchbook where I kind of let go of the reins and let things just happen:

Thanks for reading, folks. I hope to share more sketches on a new tumblr for the experimental and observational imagery. Stay tuned.

Enjoy the Day,
