Atlantean Guard

Posted on Thursday, December 29th, 2005 under Sketches | No comments

My rendition on a guard trooper of the great city Atlantis. I started this sketch with a mechanical pencil, while riding with Jodie to my Grandma's house. I reworked several areas to get them just right. Once we got there and no one else was and we had to wait, I defined and re-defined areas of his body with a standard PaperMate HB #2 pencil. Once I had everything in place, I added some faux dark lines and rubbed them to add some shading and depth to his body. Then I went back with my trusty Staedtler Mars plastic eraser and took out some of the rubbed graphite to indicate highlight areas.

Overall, I am and everyone else seemed pleased. His hair and waistline are my favorite touches. Hope you like it.
