I was in Belfast yesterday and today.  Super nice day today, so I did some quick sketches of Belfast Harbor. Hopefully I'll be posting more regularly soon.

I was a pretty big fan of Zorro when I was a kid.  Had the cape.  Had the mask.  This didn't start out as a Zorro pic, but once I sketched in the smile I was pretty sure that's where I was going with it.  None of that brooding hero shtick for him.  Anyway, this was done with pencils, and then a real brush and ink, and then colored in Photoshop.

several things

I'm pretty sure I haven't posted anything new all week.  Here's some stuff I did over the last few days.

Super 8

I saw JJ Abrams' Super 8 today.  It's quite fun -- has some problems toward the end, but it built up so much good will for most of its running time that they don't matter so much to me.  Maybe they'll become more glaring upon future viewings?

Either way, this movie has a ton of great stuff going for it.  Any scene involving the main character, Joe, and the girl he likes, Alice, is pure magic.  One scene in particular involving Alice trying to impress Joe with her zombie impression is probably my favorite scene in the whole movie and my favorite scene of the year so far.

I could have watched a whole movie of these kids just making a movie without anything weird happening.

passing the time

Little hold on the pen-sketches.  Here are two I did while passing the time on a ferry to an island a few days ago.

farmer's market

Two more done today during the lunch break.  There was a farmer's market happening down at the boardwalk.  These are a bit scribbley.

sketching things i'm looking at

I was spurred on by my recent pen sketches of actual things I'm looking at to go out and do some more.  So, I went down to Rockland Harbor with a little sketchbook and a pen and did a dozen or so sketches.  I'll probably spread these out over the week so I can make sure I can do an update every day.  Some of them are more detailed than others and were all done in three minutes or less, I think.

Okay, that second one is not actually drawn from life.

some pen sketches

I had a tiny review of the new X-Men movie written up, but decided to delete it.  I liked it quite a bit, though.  Here are some pen sketches I did last night while waiting to go to the movie.  Some of them are even taken from real life, which I should do more often.
