Study: Yukito Kishiro

Copied a drawing of John Farrell, a character from the latest installment of Yukito Kishiro's Battle Angel Alita: Last Order. This was a study to see if by looking at and copying other artists lines I could get a better feel for how to approach my own line work. This was useful I think. I will do another one tomorrow. (Used a crow-quill nib, ink pen for the blacks.)

The alternate title to this post is "crap on a cracker". I am sort of frustrated with my lack of talent - everything looks so rushed and sloppy (especially after I go over the pencil with the inkpen). GAH!! The next few drawings I am going to do are copies of drawings that I think are good. maybe I can learn something about linework by studying and copying artists who know what the hell they're doing.
