Mouse Ears, Octopi, and drawers



Hey ladies and sirs!! Heres an update with some stuff I did today. The caricatures were a blast..me and my buddy Robb ( http://robbgibbs.blogspot.com/ ) posted outside of our Student Center and cranked out some craziness. I had a lot of fun with using different colored lines and markers. Drawing other artists I had to step my game up so I really tried to push them into crazy, but simple, shapes. The octopus piece is from the moleskine...it's a practice piece for a larger ink illustration I have in the works. And the girl drawings...well those are therapeutic for me..haha. Take care, Francis.

Hey man I'm liking the octopus piece alot. Good shapes and compostion. I would be careful with where your focus is at though. Right now you have an equally balanced value structure which makes it hard to find a focus. It might be helpful to choose either a predominantly dark piece with a spot of light or a predominantly light piece with a spot of dark to create a specific area of interest. Usually 70/30 is a good rule of thumb. But then again rules are made to be broken...
